Tasty food, refined service and unique location in the heart of Historic Phnom Penh. You will feel the essence of Khmer hospitality at breakfast time !

I had an early morning appointment and so I reluctantly left my hotel room just before 7am on 29 August for a quick breakfast at Cafe Monivong. There were quite a number of early birds having their breakfast too, including solo diners from different countries as well as a fairly rowdy and jovial group of Japanese tourists. I thought the...

If you are not staying at the hotel, don't bother coming here for breakfast. It is a bit out of the way and rather expensive for what it is offered.

We booked a table of 4 with Panha Sin from sales for their Christmas evening buffet dinner. She did a great job securing this table as due to my location at the time I was not able to send a deposit. The food was very nice. Well made desserts and Christmas fare. Service was impeccable which one would expect at... More

Typical Raffles style. We stopped for lunch on a tour and had a wide range of choice. Each dish was tasty. Good clean food

The place is pretty quiet i.e. not so many people there but the food selection is not extensive especially if you're staying at the hotel for a whole week.

Went there for a business lunch and had the buffet. Was very impressed with the varieties of foods to choose, very fresh, very tasty and delicious. Service, as for the rest of Raffles Hotel, it is very good and friendly.

We only ate breakfast here during our stay. The breakfast buffet is as good as it gets. In fact, although it is a buffet, the staff are so attentive that it's easy to cheat and have them do all the "leg work". And they absolutely don't seem t mind. The service is as attentive and delightful as everywhere else in... More

Was staying at the Raffles so we had our first dinner there. A great mix of international and local food. Not cheap, but you are at the Raffles, after all!
