Absolutely LOVED our meal here! It was our last night and we were looking for somewhere to eat that was good quality food and this didn't disappoint. Wendy the Australian owner made a real effort to explain the whole menu to us which was really good! We got the blue cheese parcels which were epic, roasted pork belly probably the... More

Well, the food was good, the service was good, but the madam will talk your ear off, and the portions are very small, for the price. The location is also in the middle of nowhere. I wouldn't recommend it.

Nice quite location and cozy interior , but I do not think that cockroaches on the table in a restaurant is something to make your dinner enjoyable.

I am shocked to read this. Every diner is asked if they enjoyed the food & experience & you certainly did not voice this to myself or my staff....... I can assure you and other diners that our restaurant is attended by pest control two times a month and we act immediately when an incident is highlighted. We pride ourselves... More

As a group of 4 we shared crab cakes (excellent) and a felafel for starter. For mains we had two belly pork and a sea bass with two cauliflower potato. The latter is heavenly. Belly pork is succulent with a crisp layer on top. Sea bass was also excellent but a small chunky portion (could have ate more); the asparagus... More

This is in a quiet part of BKK1 - it's a cosy space. Wendy the owner introduces herself and explains the menu. It was a Friday night when we went - it was full so we were lucky to reserve a table. Food is good for sharing - we ordered a lot of food and it was all pretty good... More

We enjoyed dinner here so much we returned the next night. The menu is made for sharing, the owner Wendy was very friendly and talked us through the menu. As vegetarians there was lots of choice. Cocktails were excellent, service was brilliant and the food was the best we ate in Cambodia. It is a little bit tricky to find.

Our family visited this restaurant while we were holidaying in Phnom Penh, it is in the city but a little off the main street, hidden in small lane.

Small cosy dining which is great except when there is an obnoxious child at a nearby table. Interesting menu with small serves that are meant to be shared. Fairly priced . Probably wouldn't revisit.

We enjoyed an eclectic mix of cuisines at this small and Intimate restuarant tucked away in backstreets of old Phnom Penh by an expat Australian who seems to run a tight ship and delivers a good meal with companion wines at a fair price. You may even see kangaroo on the menu alongside Khmer classics!
