I love when I can dine out with my boyfriend who loves hearty things like garlic bread and creamy pumpkin soup and I can have a healthy, vegetarian dish (even better that it was a vegetarian amok, their local dish!) Quality is well above average for the prices. $3.00 for the local vegetarian specialty -- leafy greens, carrots, very good... More

During our visit to Phnom Penh we ended up coming back here for the 3 nights. The food is amazing, whether it is Asian or Western. Good decent food for a bargain. Cocktails for 2US are good value ( the Long Island is a heavy hitter! ). The family running this place are great! Deffo worth visiting

Came here first night in Phnom Penh due to well priced food and cocktails. Have now been back 3 times with various friends and no bad meals yet. It has a large menu which often makes me question whether can be done well but in this case they can. Had both Cambodian and western dishes and all good. Food is... More

We were regular visitors for breakfast at Aroma during our time in Phnom Penh. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, they even waved hi to us when we walked past during the day. The fresh fruit was the nicest we had while in Cambodia. Would definitely recommend!

I was a regular visitor in the mornings for my wild mushroom soup which was very tasty and got me off to a good start. In the evening I recommend the roast beef dinner which was very tender and included Bisto gravy. The staff are very friendly and the prices are very reasonable.

We went in the evening and had a good meal. The fish tempura was light and fresh. The nicoise salad, not authentic but tasty. Pork khmer and rice nicely spiced. ~Even had space for a pudding, roasted apple and icecream. Together with a coffee, bottle of wine and 2 beer the bill came to 30 Dollars.
