Stumbled upon this by accident but am so glad we did. The food was a cut above - the French always cook well tbf - and the service and atmosphere were great too. New owner seemed lovely and even performed some genuinely good magic tricks.

Ok. I’ve been twice. If you understand French bistro food, it’s a great change from local food, and I assure you there’s nothing wrong with Khmer cuisine. People have mentioned $10 fixed price menu. Yep, if you sit at the bar and arrive before 20:30....More
