Stirring in here and trading the food. Certainly not the place you go of you are alone. Go with friends so they can entertain you. The restaurant design is over tacky, service.. Hmm.. The food is fine. Not worthy to go back soon, but it was fine.

We saw this restaurant next to our hotel, and since it was not bad reviewed here we decided to try. Since it was low season and early, we went without reservation. When we got there, no one acknowledged us in the first minutes. When someone decided to welcome us, they just growled some unintelligible words, and looked really surprised. Then... More

This is a perfect place for anyone who is curious to find out about the Japanese cuisine but was always afraid to try it. Unlike a few other paces that I have been to before, this one has an extensive menu of truly remarkable and tasty dishes. It also offers a selection of very interesting and unusual drinks with great... More

I love to read the reviews of a place after I have visited. So happy to see so many 5 stars as I totally agree - five stars all the way. I loved the whole evening. I was encouraged to visit by a friend and decide it was the perfect excuse to celebrate recent successes. The food was delicious! The... More

This is the farthest from a japenese resturant you can get. The food was overpowered by the garlic.....iceberg salate with factory dressing....slow service. I had to hunt down the service staff to order more food as the platter for two was more suited for one. There were four of us and our bill was over $250.00 and when at 10:00... More

We had an amazing time and meal at Samurai. Initially we went for sushis but quickly gave up because of the price (I guess good fresh fish is hard to find in Cambodia). Their set of tepinyaki is THE good option. Set menu for 2 at 46 $ and the food was absolutely outstanding! The chef provides entertainment as she... More

By Cambodian prices this place is expensive but for a night out away from the tourist strip of Sisowath it's a bit of fun. The food was excellent, service very attentive and teppenyaki is always a dining experience for me. The real attraction for me is the decor, a bit of bling and great over the top stuff that you...
