“Favourite restaurant in Phnom Penh”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

This restaurant is amazing. We had the salmon, which was very good, and the joue de boeuf, which was phenomenal. The owner is very friendly and appears to really care about the quality of food he is serving and the experience of his customers. Will definitely be returning here a lot.

“Amazing French Restaurant”
Reviewed November 30, 2013 via mobile

We went to Chez Gaston based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed! Between us we had salmon, duck and beef, and the delicious chocolate mousse. Everything was incredible. Great food, and very friendly staff who were happy to explain the menu - as my rusty French couldn't manage everything. Would wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant.

Thank Pintxos

“Chez Gaston, Phnom Penh”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

The World's Best tripe:
I cooked tripe at home once a month and regualrly order it in restaurants (not a regular item on most menu's). My tripe receipe changes slightly from month to month, I'm always seeking perfection. There are several restaurants in Phnom Penh with tripe on the menu and they are all very good. About 10 days ago I wandered into a newest (August 2012) Phnom Penh eatery for my evening meal. Tripe on the menu, so it was a must order for me. I can only describe the dish as 'The World's Best Tripe'.
Chex Gaston is located on Street 15 close to the corner of St 144 about four streets back from the riverside in Phnom Penh.

“Possibly the best French meal ever”
Reviewed November 21, 2013 via mobile

We fancied a change and as the reviews read well we thought why not go french. The place is hard to find and is not in the correct place on the map.

Only 5 tables so book. The menu is traditional french and the french owner very friendly. We had the tomato salad, snails and beef cappacio. This was possibly better than any meal i have had in france and i go regularly.

Wine list good and ask from the blackcurrent vodka digestive.

Yes it is more than a local meal but the quality was amazing.

Hats off the the owner and such a wonderful place.
