“A travesty to Indian food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

My credentials: I've eaten Indian food in restaurants all over Europe, the UK, my home town Manchester, SE Asia and ..... India! I'm also a keen amateur chef specializing in Indian cuisine.

Chi Cha was the worst "Indian" food I've ever eaten. Barely lukewarm chicken curry, extremely oily. Samosas cooked in under temperature oil resulting in over-absorption. Vegetable curry with frozen package carrots and peas. Come on! Do better! Take pride as well as money.

This place, however, just takes the mick.

“A great little find with fabulous meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

A super cheap restaurant with a set menu for $4.50 for daal, a curry of your choice, all the bread and chappatis you need and also vege and salad. In all fairness there is not alot of curry - we had the chicken and you had two pieces of chicken on the bone but there was alot of meat and it was substantial for us. The daal curry was amazing and worth the price alone.

A great place to stock up at lunch before hitting the streets again.

We went several times and enjoyed it every time.

“Tastiest little curry house.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Chi Cha is a wonderful, well priced Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant in the heart of Phnom Penh. Set menu or Thalis for $4.00 to $5.00 with all the rice and chapati you can eat. The vegetable and chicken fry are very, very tasty and good value. Would recommend for those looking for good value Indian/Bangladeshi.

“All you can eat at a low price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

I've been eating here for numerous years and everyone I have taken here has enjoyed it. The price has steadily gone up fro $2.50 to where it is now, but still a good value. Highly recommend
