This was one of our top restaurents in Cambodia. The menu was great. Loved the idea of ordering "whatever your server had for lunch". The portions were generous and prices good. Food was great quality and flavoursome. Pretty decor too. We treated ourselves to some...passionfruit cocktails which were delightful.More

In two weeks of travelling across Cambodia, this was my favorite restaurant. Their variety of cocktails and vegetarian tapas was remarkable and constituted exciting takes on Cambodian cooking. Of note, the tapas portions were particularly large. The restaurant supports the Cambodian Children's Trust, an outstanding...organization reforming care for indigent children across the country. This should not be missed when visiting Battambang.More

I loved the food here (especially the vegetarian options), the baos were my favourite. Also great coffee, excellent place for lunch or dinner. I visited a couple of times this week and each time was met with the most lovely and friendly service staff. Highly...recommended (and great place to work from if you’re working remotely too!).More

We loved this restaurant so much we ate here twice during our stay! The staff is friendly and speaks impeccable English. The food was really delicious and there was a wide variety of options. The space is also cute and well designed.

This place is very touristy which most everywhere else I eat is not. The food was markedly more expensive and not as good. However it is a pretty and air conditioned room.

We had an absolutely delicious dinner here, would definitely recommend a visit! My boyfriend had the pork and crab congee while I had the pork chop, both of which tasted great. We wish we could have visited more than once!

Charming, on trend decor, great location downtown, innovative combination of fresh foods, wonderfully presented, and friendly service. Food is very good ... but trying to get an accurate description of the food in the menu item is a bit of a challenge. That was our...Toronto type A personality coming out. We had a fabulous lunch - best of the 3 cities we visited. The second time we went with a couple from North Carolina - their first time and their type A came out in full swing. We, old timers that we were, relaxed and ordered without questions and had a second fabulous lunch. So did the NC couple. Another couple was reading the menu at the window. We motioned to them to come in and told them they would love it. They finished their appetizers as we were leaving. They were from NZ and had a child with them. Yes! They loved it! The drinks menu is equally fun and tasty. You’ll go back to this place a second time. I promise.More
