By far the best ribs in Phnom Penh, and great Mexican dishes too. Unfortunately the place is closed since 1/1/2017. Too bad, you will be missed.More

Tacos Kokopelli is now open in the same location, with the same management. The menu is now more authentically Mexican with some Asian fusion as well. We are looking to set up BBQ ribs once a month. Thanks for your support. See you soon at...More

At Alley Cat Cafe we are very proud of our hygiene record. Complaints of this type are very uncommon, but we do take them seriously if they occur. Unfortunately you did not list the food you ate so I cannot look into this issue specifically,...More

We've had delivery and eat-in here and its always good. The burgers are large and have that rare quality of being able to be picked up and eaten without dropping to bits in your hands. Very good ribs too, only $10/kg on Tuesdays.

Cold beers, food was great. First chicken breast we've had in our 3 weeks in South East Asia and it was exactly what we needed. Total dive bar, but that's the charm. Owner was nice.

Hidden down a narrow alley, next door to Blue Lime hotel, this bar is a surprise find. A charming, grungy ex-pat hangout, it exudes atmosphere. We were lucky to be able to go on a Sunday night which was a live music night; very lively...More

Once you find the place it's a really nice spot! The owner (I'm guessing, spoke with an australian accent) took our order and was extremely friendly. Food was good and drinks were cold.

We look forward to welcoming you at Tacos Kokopelli Mexican Restaurant (previously Alley Cat Cafe). Kokopelli is a humpbacked flute playing fertility deity who presides over agriculture, especially the corn and flour that are the basis for our tortillas. Come and enjoy fresh local Cambodian ingredients in authentic Mexican dishes, or enjoy Kokopelli's trickster side in Asian fusion that pairs the most delicious regional dishes with Mexican presentations. Kokopelli's musical nature is manifested in our weekly Sunday Sundowner Sessions jam and open mic hosted by Joe Wrigley, and LIVE music nights on Fridays. At Tacos Kokopelli we are committed to doing what's right for the environment, not because it's trendy or hip, but because it's the right thing to do. Our menu showcases fresh local produce, focusing on sustainable meats and including vegetarian and vegan options. We are not using plastic water bottles, and will be offering free chilled water instead. Our lighting is comprised of low energy and LED bulbs and we are reducing our energy use wherever possible. Our used oil goes to Naga biofuels for safe recycling, and all our cans and paper / cardboard is recycled too. For delivery we will use biodegradable containers in place of styrofoam, and we think that's a very good thing, and hope you do too! See you soon at Tacos Kokopelli.
