We spent three days in Battambang, and each night we ate at Madison Corner. We also had breakfast there one morning, and an afternoon drink w/ a crepe on a different day. This place felt like home to us. We've been on the road for close to 3 months and just needed a place that felt "right." The kind of place that doesn't take your order and then 30 minutes later tells you they don't have what you ordered. The kind of place that doesn't insist on BLASTING SE Asian pop while you're trying to read &/or converse over a beer. The kind of place that respects quality ingredients. The kind of place that has a staff that talks to you and makes you feel welcome. We got all of this and more here. The food is outstanding - incredible crepes, both savory and sweet, the best burger I've had in Asia - and the staff is memorable. Seriously, if you're looking to eat familiar food for a day or two while traveling SE Asia, you can't beat this place for its ambiance and cuisine.

Bought a pitcher and enjoyed a very relaxed and pleasant evening. Good ambiance and service. One of the few bars actually prepared to serve decent drinks. Nice to pass the evening. Played some good music that had a old time jazz feel.

This place looks quite good from the street and has nice local serving staff. Unfortunately that's about all that's good about this place. The meat they gave us was almost raw, when we told them they didn't seem to care, just took the plate away. The vegetables were tasteless and weren't fresh. which is inexcusable when the market down the road has great produce. Khmer food was around $5 US, which is a massive rip off. I wouldn't recommend this place.

Had their fried khmer ravioli and they are very good.

Also has a collection of good single mat whiskys and the pineapple palm wine tastes just like good white wine.

It is the expat place in town, and very good to meet people living here.

Whilst I wasn't expecting a great deal I was actually very pleasantly surprised by the standard of the food here.
We both chose Khmer food which is possibly why, I wouldn't expect my local restaurant here in the Uk to serve very good Cambodian food so it baffles me when people seem surprised with the quality of the burger and chips served in Cambodia. I would suggest a change of name as the Madison may fool some into thinking its somehow American therefore serves solely burger and fries?
Service as usual in Cambodia, excellent.
Whilst it may not be the best restaurant in town it surely has to be in the top twenty if not ten.
