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, but I will mention this review to the kitchen staff, and review basic hygiene &... 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 and lots of fun. The Mexican food was reasonably priced and good. Our only complaint... 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.

This is that kind of place you use TripAdvisor; located in an alley of an alley you won't find unless you randomly trip and roll three times over. Where the restaurants itself in terms of decoration is nothing much (it had the old music and posters of the days of yore) the food will make everything worth while. I had... More

Description
The Alley Cat Cafe is home to quality Mexican cuisine and burgers in Phnom Penh. Head down the alley to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The beer is cold, the vibe laid back, and the music is an eclectic mix of classic and alternative rock, jazz and blues. Check your pretensions at the door, and enjoy a casual yet wholly fulfilling dining experience. Burritos, sizzling Fajitas, Quesidillas, Enchiladas, and many more tantalizing Mexican dishes await you, alongside our huge range of burgers that includes Cambodia's biggest burger "The Quadruple Bypass".Wash it down with top shelf tequila and tasty margaritas, and take advantage of our happy hour 5pm -7pm, and daily specials 7-10pm. See you soon at the Alley Cat Cafe!
