Go there just for the colonial architecture house that has been renewed with taste. A drink on the terrace (what I did on Dec. 2nd 2016 in the evening), brunch in the garden (on Sundays), or dinner inside. Just go and visit. Don't forget to go to the bathroom on second floor!

Tutti Frutti was my favourite cocktail here, frozen and sweet. We also tried the tasting platter, which is a definite must. Local flavours, mixed with different South African flavours, give this a go!

What a way to end our stay in Phnom Penh! This restaurant was not only a beautiful place to dine, being in an almost original 1910 Chinese house, surrounded by stunning artwork and decor but the food was a culinary delight!! We enjoyed every course and cannot recommend the restaurant more highly! The staff were were awesome too, friendly and... More

It's Quite an upscale and fine dining kind of place. Food was tasty, and less expensive than what i expected . I got the fish with some mousse on it, and a jasmin tea sauce. The whole place was beautifull and very tastefully decorated . Quite remote location though and it was tricky to get a tuk tuk back to... More

This place is beautiful, an old Cambodian house redecorated in an stunning asian style. The food is delicious, a fusion between Western and Asian and the service was great. I'm vegetarian and there is plenty of options in the menu. I highly recommend this place.

What a place! Loved it! Get yourselves down here! I came only for a drink but next time food too! The prices are not small but you are paying for the "whole experience". Can't wait to come back!

Well, maybe "architectural grandeur" is an exaggeration, but the ambience was uplifting and very unlike the normal Phnom Penh dining experience, and the architecture (the whole two-storeyed structure is supported by tall wooden columns that each seem to be carved from a single tree) deeply impressed my friend, who is a world-traveled architect. It was evening, around 7.30 pm, an... More

This restaurant is well worth a trip. The building has been restored and use to be an old warehouse. The overall feel is definitely at the tip of the hipster spear. The food is wonderful a really modern take on cambodian food and lovely, Excellent wine selection. The manager was extremely helpful. This place I am sure will do very... More
