“Great Cambodian Restaurant”
Reviewed February 2, 2014 via mobile

Found through trip, very satisfied with the menu, cost and service. Friendly atmosphere and service ladies took time to explain the dish I picked; machu angkor soup it was has a salty, sweet and tumdor taste. The white rice was cooked complete and had great taste. Dinner for two people at $20, I can't complain a bit. We will be back...

“Great food, amazing service, great prices”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I would describe this as a hole-in-the-wall restaurant, with great food, amazing service, and great prices. We tried a variety of things because it was our first time. The traditional Cambodian eggrolls were one of my favorites, very thing crispy skin. Just loved them. Also appreciated that they didn't try to rush us out of the restaurant. We were there at a slow moment, apparently just a bit after a rush. And many people were sticking around to talk. Kitchen was SUPER-fast, and the food was great. We will go here many more times and try new things each time.

“A University av classic.”
Reviewed September 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been eating here since 1998 regularly. This is good honest Cambodian food in a no thrills slightly run down environment. Food is a great value, with the soup amongst my favorite dishes here. With the opening of the light rail next year, this neighborhood will inevitably go through a gentrification process and many of these restaurants will disappear, eat here now!

“Cambodian food”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is one of our 3 family favorites in Saint Paul. We have been eating here since our kids were kids. They started coming here on their own in high school and continued through college days. This place if affordable: great prices. Really good food. Dishes are as hot as you want: sauces are on the table for you to add.

The restaurant is run by a friendly family. They outlasted the light rail construction. Next year you can get there by train.
