Food is average but costs more than I expected. USD 15 for a meal with a drink (non-alcohol). Good location.

I went here last night and ordered the Chicken Vindaloo, the cost was great at $5.50 with rice, not a large potion of rice though, I did need more for the curry. The curry was quite tasty and hot. However the staff did not seem too interested in working, one was listening to music on her phone just behind me... More

May have been just an hour before closing when we dropped in for eats after flying in from Siem Reap. Food and service was ok, nothing bad to say about it just that nothing really stood out

The food we ordered was very delicious. We got the happy hour specials outside of the specified time! Service wasn't very alert, but always friendly. Nice view at the riverside.

Visited here on my first night in Phnom Penh before going to Siem Reap. Had the chicken amok and it did not disappoint. In fact, it ruined me for the amok's to follow. I came back to Phnom Penh before flying out and had to come back here just to settle my cravings. Service is okay at best, but the... More

Plenty of options on the menu, we both chose Indian food which was superb. Massive samosas that were lovely followed by curry which was so nice and filling! We ordered 2 chicken dishes but one came with beef, we couldn't be bothered to wait for a fresh one as we were starving so it was ate anyway, maybe that was... More

Looking for a restaurant for dinner re relied on reviews and chose Karma. Unfortunately, it didn’t live up to those great reviews. The food was ordinary and bland. Service was good but that couldn’t make up for the food.

We were wandering around and ended up dining in Karma thanks to TripAdvisor reviews. We ordered some Khmer dishes and Samosas, dishes were good and tasty, though one of the local dishes had too much anise for our tastes - truth be told, we both kind of hate anise. Anyway, the dishes were pretty good and we enjoyed the meal.... More
