Massaman curry that i ordered was obviously red curry sweatened with honey or something like that. Hot and sweet. Burned nuts inside the dish was not nice eighter. My husband was a bit luckier than me.

We've visited this restaurant 3 times in the last week of being in Phnom Penh and it's never disappointed. The staff aren't overly friendly but the food is really tasty and the prices are quite good compared to many places in the area (average of $3.50 a dish.) Definitely worth a visit for a tasty, well priced meal!

This restaurant is my favorite in all of Phnom Penh. They have a very large menu and I have tried many of their dishes. Some of the highlights are the spicy clams, the panang, the pad thai, and the soups, but I've never had anything I didn't like. The prices are very reasonable (in the range of 3-3.50 for most...

Been here few times, simple deco, good food, reasonable price, will recommend this place. They had a air conditioned second floor which I didn't go before, because ground floor was not that hot, even is room temperature. Some staffs can speak English, mix of customers here, locals and expat. Love the papaya salad and steam fish with lime sauce.

Located in prime area, al fresco type. Good foods, mostly khmer or asian foods. Taste are okay and acceptable. The price are worth the portion. Overall is recommended.

Many restaurant options in this district of PP. We were walking around looking for lunch without any particular food in mind and went into Tom Yum for Thai. Varied menu of Thai and Khmer dishes. It was a hot January day and the server asked if we wanted to sit upstairs in the aircon dining room. "YES!" However when we... More

Better places in the area. My GF had masaman curry which was pretty bad. It was very sweet and in a thick, ketchup like sauce. I had red curry which was OK but no better. Can't complain at the prices but you'll find better Thai and Khmer food in many of the surrounding streets.

Massaman curry served here doesn't have much in common with the fragrant Thai dish you might be expecting. It tastes like sweet and sour chicken from a cheap Chinese takeaway with a generous dollop of ketchup. My boyfriend's red curry was a little better, but still below average and far from authentic Thai. Won't be coming back.
