Reviewed January 31, 2013

I found this place my ultimate favorite restaurant in phnom phen that I went to. The great service was even more delighting as soon as you walk in. Food is prepared quickly and is delicious. Only fault would be that the bathroom is not quite clean but apart from that I have no faults. I was extremely impressed

“Great food, great value, great atmosphere”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

Love visiting here on weekends!

Had the veggie burger and it was excellent value and the best I've had in the city so far. The staff are incredibly friendly, and the service is quick and professional. Great prices for beer and cocktails and always seems to be a really friendly crowd hanging around.

“Good location, very friendly staff, nice rooms, good food.”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Located on a street with many restaurents near the National Museum, The Laughing Fatman proved to be a very nice place to stay. The owner and staff are all very friendly. The rooms are clean and spacious and offer good value at 15 dollars. The owner owns a restaurent with the same name very near by which also makes it possible to order food straight to the hotel, I would recommend the Khmer Curry.

Down at the lobby there is a common area with chairs, tables and couches as well as a small bar with cheap prices. We had some very pleasent evenings drinking with the other travellers at the hotel.
