Went here for lunch and got not disappointed. My husband and I ordered 4 different (vegetarian) tapas and this was enough for us. The prices are little high, but the quality is really good and the goal of this restaurant is great. Would come again.

My husband and I were travelling in Cambodia with my mum so we had to visit restaurants which were a bit better than our normal budget options which involved some research.

Check their website. Food is okay! It is the philosophy behind it that makes you go there. It makes you feel good.

Highly recommend you try it while it's on the menu (it's an October special - they seem to add different things each... More
