first of all, the menu is FANTASTIC. my friends and i had such agony choosing our food because everything looked so delicious. it is a mix of Western and Asian dishes. everything was so delightful, including an upstairs which is a lot more spacious than it looks when you first enter. love the cozy decor. they also have a merch corner which you can find bargain items including apparel, books and DVDs. this establishment is run by cambodian women for support their families. dont leave before having dessert!!!!

We went there twice for breakfast. The first time was ok and the second one was terrible. We ordered some iced coffee with cream and they brought us a dark coffee that was not drinkable although the first time we came here, it was really nice. First issue is that there is a lack of consistency here. Second issue is that the waitress was not smiling at all and was very unpleasant which is surprising in Cambodia. Then, when the food came, it was fairly good but I found an hair in my jam and when I mentioned it, I had no compensation or even an excuse. At least you expect an apology when something like this happens....We won't come back and it is the worst place we ever been in terms on service. There are lots of restaurants nearby where people are actually happy to work and are delivering good service.

Popped into this restaurant, set up to help Khmer women, to meet a friend. Pleased I did as very comfortable and great AC when it was scorching hot in May. Had a very nice lasagna and just had to try the sweet department. They make wonderful cheese cakes here. All together, a very nice relaxing place with a good range on their menu.

Great food selection, if you crave homemade quality food that's the place to go. They have a great selection of cakes and their meals are well priced. Highly recommend their lasagnas. They have vegetarian options as well if you're into that. Usually busy and not the best place to go if you want to get work done, but its a great spot to get lunch or dinner if you're near the Russian market.
