“Fantastic food and friendly folks!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

The food here is freshly prepared and you can taste that from the first bite! Do not miss out on the Amok Fish and Kapi fried rice, they left me coming back for more! Within 7 days I had to revisit the restaurant almost everyday not only for the fantastic food but also for the friendly atmosphere and welcoming owners. The music played allows you to enjoy your meal and chat with your friends whilst sipping a glass of wine or cold beer. It was such a pleasure to eat here and I will definitely be returning to this restaurant the next time I find myself in Phnom Penh!

“Ok if in the area”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

A bit out of the way from the main restaurant scene in Phnom Penh, located out towards the Russian Market. The set-up is nice and a lot of thought has gone into the decor. However the service is lacking and slow as the staff are quite un-attentive, and their English ability is questionable. The food was OK but nothing special. If you are in the area perhaps worth a visit.

“Great food prepared with attention to detail”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

This is NOT a food factory! No fast food will be found here. Attention to detail is given for every dish - a culture imparted by the friendly French owner and manager.

I had the Lemon Grass Chicken which was cooked to perfection - best I've ever enjoyed! The fruit smoothie was also delicious.

DON'T: Come here for food to be ordered and ready in 5 minutes
DON'T: Expect HUGE portions for rock-bottom prices

DO: Plan to spend an hour enjoying a glass of wine and your meal
DO: Be pleasantly surprised at the excellently prepared and tasty food
DO: Relax and chat with the friendly French owner who cares about his food and customers

This is a great place to come and relax in for an hour or two, enjoying great food, and leaving feeling refreshed. The staff can speak English and the menu's also have English.

“A dining pleasure from start to finish”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

We ate here just over a week ago and we loved it. From the cold towels to refresh you at the start, the delicious appetiser of pickled vegetables (twice as we'd hungrily devoured the first plate in seconds and were offered thirds!) to our amazing mains and informative and friendly chats with the owners. We were also lucky enough to be introduced to some of the more unusual fruits in Cambodia by the owners who took the time to show us. Overall we had a lovely meal and were so glad we sought this place out in Phnom Penh. Our only disappointment was that we hadn't found it earlier in our stay so we could visit again.

“Middle of the road”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

L'orchidee is very middle of the road. Goodish food, ambiance, drinks and waiters. Nothing to write home about, OK if you are in the area and want a quick bite. Otherwise not worth it.

OrchideeRestaurant, Owner at L'Orchidee Restaurant, responded to this review, January 13, 2013
Dear customer,
Thank you for your comment. We noticed that, somehow, you appreciated our place but with some "reserve".
Know that we take your comment as a invitation to improve and become better... We are always "self-reviewing" our place. And to find the right balance between; the food and drinks we propose; prices we charge; ambiance we offer; service we deliver is a perpetual challenge, but the kind of challenge we like as it prevents us to sit-down for too long and do some self-satisfaction...
And if I may use of some humor to end this... Better not to stay in the middle of the road in Phnom Penh... It is, by far, the most dangerous place to be :-)
We wish you a pleasant stay in Cambodia, and hope to see you again at our place to show you how seriously we try to respond to our customer's reviews.
Best regards.
The team from l'Orchidee Restaurant
