Yes, the food here is on the expensive side, but the old adage "you get what you pay for" is very relevant in Cambodia, where quality imported ingredients are expensive and at times, difficult to find. If you want a good steak (Cambodian beef is horrible), you have to go to a place where the meat is imported.
The food at Reef is always good, and is always consistently so. The menu includes a few Tex-Mex dishes and American staples, including steaks, and buffalo wings (currently only on Wednesdays). The sandwich shop out front has fresh cold-cuts like turkey and roast beef with lots of good, fresh toppings to choose from. Again, more than you'd pay for a sandwich at other places in town, but here the meat is plentiful - unlike other places that shove a few slivers of ham or chicken and loads of cucumbers, green tomatoes and wilted lettuce into a rubbery local baguette for a dollar or two less.
I'd also like to combat a negative review by someone who gave Reef a bad rating because they only ate fruit for breakfast and nothing else - how can you rate the place having never eaten the food? Yes, the owner is American, so Mexican and steaks are "what he knows". Duh... I don't know Turkish food at all, so why would I open a Turkish restaurant?
The tequila selection here is good, too - with some top-shelf 100% de agave bottles like Patron, Don Julio and Herradura. If you feel like splurging on a top shelf tequila, they're served in tall, iced shot glasses.
