With capacious seating and four VIP rooms set in a courtyard around a fountain, it is undeniably the capital's premier gourmet dining experience. Its busy kitchen is home to Luu Meng, Cambodia's only masterchef, whose artfully prepared dishes have graced tables around the world.

My husband and I had dinner here on the last night of our honeymoon, and it absolutely lived up to our expectations. We recommend sitting in the garden and enjoying the lovely koi pond. (The staff even give you anti-mosquito cream just in case!) The food itself was delicious - after one month traveling around, I can say that this was the best fish amok I had anywhere. The kapi fried rice is also ridiculously tasty, as is the soft shelled crab with pepper sauce. Great for a romantic night out or a big meal with friends.

Malis have some nice options on the menu and the food is generally quite good, especially the curries. The prices are very reasonable for the quality and the service is ok. We tried the fried pork banana flower salad, good but a little small.

This restaurant is just magnificent - it has an atmosphere that is worth anything !
A little water feature in the middle of the terrace/garden, with a cascade and rocks, tastefully lit in the evening. Traditional music is being played, but it is in the background so guests are not disturbed. Service is impeccable, chef (one of Cambodia's bests) has his own creations. When asking for the recipe of the sauce that I particularly liked, was offered a small bottle of it !
