“Decent spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Good food in central spot. Service was very average though. Worth it if your in the area but it's not exceptional.

“Content”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2012

Arrived at restaurant, was advised to go up to the terrace balcony, nice view down to street, orchids in pots. Service very slow, guess because of chinese tourist bus tours there. Menu very extensive, everything we ordered was great quality, quantity and priced cheaply. Would recommend it, and I went back for another meal.

“Going local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2012

The White Rose is certainly nothing special in the looks or service department, but it is a very typical local peoples eating place. So if you want to buck the usual tourist-centric places and go local this is a great place to do it as the food is super tasty and super cheap. Go on, give it a go.

“Both over- and under-rated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

The reviews on this restaurant are all over the place: some people find it amazing, some horrible. The truth is -- and this comes after many visits to The White Rose -- the restaurant is just okay.

The food is hit and miss, but is consistently, well, pretty good.

Breakfast is the real winner -- lots of "stick to your ribs" types of meals ranging from fresh fruit and muesli to hearty omelets with baguettes. And it's super cheap.

You ought to give it a try. It's not nearly as disgusting as some here would have you believe.

“Don't bother”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

I don't understand why this restaurant has such good reviews...we were hugely disappointed by the quality of food.

We were served by a small young child and given the quality of food, we think that the food must have been cooked by small children too. The chicken noodles was a plate of greasy slop made with frozen mixed veg and the beef stew was basically a bottle of oil and tomato sauce with floating bits.

Despite the fact that we are on a food travelling trip (6 months around asia) I don't often write food reviews, but given the poor food standards I felt I had to.

If you want excellent Khmer food then go to Nary's Kitchen - it's only 5 minutes away and is very cheap too.
