I also had a good fish-based salad here. The Pomelo Salad is outstanding and the most refreshing thing you could eat in this heat and humidity. Later on in my trip, I ordered one in a very fancy pants restaurant at a more fancypants price and came to appreciate the genius of this salad even more. (Not to take anything away from Sugar Palm--it has a simple classy ambiance, good wifi, electricity, gracious service, a lovely balcony AND pretty good prices. )

Ate here twice. Food is beautiful and not expensive at all. Lovely setting on a large verandah. Liked the service.

Decoration is simple, warm atmosphere, calm place, good staff! Nice place for a lunch there. Prices are not cheap but normal for the area. To eat khmer in a western style is a good place.

Situated among many other bars and restaurants in Street 240, i reckon this one is worth looking for.
The menu contains some different dishes from many of the run of the mill places. for example, i had a Pomelo salad, followed by chicken livers cooked in ginger. The livers were cooked to perfection, still soft in the centre with areal kick of ginger. My other half had the Khmer chicken curry which was also delicious.
Strangely when we ate here it was very quiet, we had the top floor to ourselves but at least it meant we could sit out on the balcony and watch the world go by.

We were in Phnom Penh the last few days before King Sihanouk's funeral so many restaurants in town, especially those near the Royal Palace and along the Quay, were closed. We felt fortunate that Sugar Palm was open. We were able to eat at a table upstairs on the terrace and found it to be quite pleasant.

The 4 of us shared fish amok (wonderful and one of the prettiest presentations of this dish in our travels), a grilled eggplant that was declared "fabulous", a curry and a banana blossom salad. All were tasty, but I avoided the salad as it had raw bean sprouts in it.

Service was quite pleasant. The kitchen was no more slow than any kitchen that is making food to order. Prices were a bit higher than other restaurants, but still low enough to be considered a bargain by western standards.
