We had to escape the sweltering heat frm the Russian market and bumped into this little cafe which advertised they have an air conditioned room. It was upstairs and very small but the food was great! Just what the doctor ordered. Salads, wraps, paninis and much more.

Food here is delicious and it's a really nice clean atmosphere. They do western food and middle eastern food which were both done incredibly. I had a green chicken curry which was delicious.

A cafe run by an NGO training staff in hospitality skills. Good local food with different dining areas - streetside, shopfront and upstairs. I was late in so just stayed downstairs.

My girlfriend and I we're about to explore the Russian market but we're a little peckish and stumbled across this little beauty. The food was stunning that we had. My girlfriend couldn't finish her food so I polished it off as it was so nice. Definitely recommend here, especially if have or going to visit the Russian market.

Great place to relax and for those who enjoy middle eastern food. Good option for a good cause as the staff from the café is trained up to have a job.

The food I had was really everything but great. The falafel was not a falafel and the lentils, which sounded amazing, were so plain that I had to throw them out...hopefully I just picked the worst foods off the menu.

Normally, I only like to give good reviews, but I felt service was so bad it needed to be said. I have been twice and both times I had to ask 3+ times for a glass of water. I speak enough Khmer there was no misunderstanding. The last visit, after walking past 4 servers on their cell phones sitting at... More
