“Authentic Khmer Cuisine”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Great restaurant near Golden Lion. Really lovely garden setting. I'd probably describe the style of food as modern Cambodian. Excellent quality and good value. They also run a training programme for Cambodian youth in need.

“Delicious food”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

The reason to eat here is because the food is so good. It is a bonus that it is helping disadvantaged people. The decor is exquisite. You are in a peaceful haven in brash Sihanoukville. It is impeccably clean. We had spring rolls (we would call them rice paper rolls), papaya salad, seafood amok and seafood sticks with kampot pepper sauce. They were all delicious. The seafood sticks are not a big meal but as the starters are substantial this is not a problem. Anyway, you have to leave room for the caramelised pineapple pancakes.

“Please support this restaurant!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is run by an NGO giving young people the chance of learning skills for the service industry. Be prepared for slips in the service, having to repeat yourself but also for lots of smiles, a lovely atmosphere and good food. Worth going.
