I took one of the cooking classes from this restaurant and really enjoyed it. I had registered the day before and then just showed up in the morning. There were only 3 of us "students" for the class this day and the owner/chef took us...More

I can't give an opinion about the restaurant (maybe the service is slow because it is a family place), but the cooking course was amazing. The guy took us to the market and explained everything, and then to his own house, where we cooked a...More

Thought this may have been good as it was also a cooking school, but was decidedly average. Atmosphere was relaxed and staff were equally relaxed (any symbolism in the name??). Toilet facilities were below par even by local standards and there was no wifi connection....More

We took the cooking class from the restaurant owner which was a great experience. We shopped at the local market and then prepared all of the ingredients in an open air kitchen. Definitely would recommend this experience.

Went there as it is also a cooking school so we assumed the food would be good. It was disappointing and the worst meal we have had whilst in Cambodia. The service was very poor. Our waitress couldn't be more than 14 years old. We...More

Went fir a meal mid afternoon. Very junior and apparently inexperienced staff served us. Service was slow and incomplete. Food was mediocre and arrived at different times.

We booked this cooking class based on a blog online where we found it. We meet the owner chef who said to meet us 9:30 the next morning. He took us on the back of his moped to a locals market and we picked the...More

The place is kinda rough, but run by a charming family. Ok, so it's a bit disconcerting that the 13 year old (by my guess) is making the cocktails, but the food was absolutely delicious. I was feeling adventurous and tried a 'sweet soup', so...More

I did their cooking class and it was really just amazing. We started by going to a smaller market, where all the locals sold their fresh vegetables, fruits, meat and fish, and bought the ingredients. We then cooked three typical Khmer dishes which were all...More
