I've been to Phnom Penh four times now, and each time I come back to this super-consistent restaurant for their delicious soups and drinks. Very clean, reliable restaurant serving a variety of Khmer and Vietnamese favourites (as well as some western food). Fast, friendly service....More

The restaurant is clean, the pho is very good. You can get cheaper food on the street, but if you want to sit at a real table, and eat yummy pho, you should come here.

This is a great spot for good Cambodian food at a very good price. Good location near the Palace. Knew it was good based on number of people there.

Better food and bigger portions than most similar restaurants with lower prices for most dishes. It looks at the park in front the museum across the road. Nice place to hang out. Has wifi

Regular travelers to Cambodia our group thought we'd try this place for dinner for the first time. It will be our last. Food is ordinary as it is with a lot of the restaurants in the 'tourist' area. Fish Amok was OK but chicken was...More
