We had lunch and dinner the same day and this restaurant is very nice, with a friendly staff. We enjoyed our meals, you can choose either asian or western cuisine. The menu is small but probably because everthing is cooked by them which good thing for us. And they look very involved in helping children so that's another reason to go for it

This is a great place for lunch, dinner or just a coffee break. The food is great, especially if you want a break from local food and taste something different. Though they have some khmer dishes as well. The atmosphere is nice, on the first floor they have a shop that has local crafts and it is involved in social projects, which I liked. But please bear in mind that this is a cafe, and has few items on the menu, but little bit of everything and all tasty.

I came here around 8pm, and there was no other guest, so I felt as lonely as its name lol. The alcohol is cheap, a shot of tequila is about 1.5-3 dollars (cannor remember exact price), I ordered two shots served with lime and salt. It tasted nice. However,there are not many choices on the menu

We had high hopes for this place based on some of the online reviews but I was a little underwhelmed with the experience here. The portions are very small but tasty; after we left we had to eat again!
