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 undeniably beautiful from your first step through the front gate. Much thought has gone into the design of every detail. The painted tile floors, the massive bar, statues, paintings, murals, tabletops... all beautiful! And the food is a good mix of East meets West. I was with a large group, and was afforded the opportunity to sample... More
