The best vanilla ice cream ever. Not over creamy but the strongest vanilla flavour, I had one scoop in a cup $1.60 a little expensive but worth it .Hubby had a dark chocolate ice cream cone said the flavour was very strong the cone was fresh and crisp $1.60. The sign says home made they also have sherbet flavours.We looked... More

Sadly blue pumpkin is not what it used to be. They have increased the price of everything and can't even give you a glass of water. They now charge $3.10 for a bottle of water that comes with 1500r ($.60) printed on the side. The sandwiches etc are just okay. We had salad and after taking so long to arrive... More

It's the kind of food you would find in a modern English cafe. Home from home if you're into that. Baguette with minimal filling, coffee ok, cakes, pastries. Staff friendly and helpful.

The Blue Pumpkin isn't what it used to be. I've visited this place on many previous visits to Cambodia. This time it left me very disappointed. This franchise has been overtaken by new kids on the block and desperately needs an upgrade.

Got overcharged, got our order wrong, brought our fries out 20 minutes before our burgers (which we waited almost an hour for) and the staff weren't exactly helpful. Burger was nice and that's about it, terrible service

Any take-away place that doesn't automatically shove your order into a plastic bag (or even double bag) gets my vote. The dry cakes & tarts are well . . . . dry but the moist lemon tarts are to die for. I've been dropping in to this place for a couple of years now and have never been disappointed.

The shop downstairs and the restaurant upstairs; Some pastry products are of poor quality. Bread not always up to western standards. Huge differences in staff performance.

Staff was super rude wouldn't let us sit in chairs in the corner away from restaurant because they claimed they were there's unless we ordered something. We ordered something that was way over priced and quite disappointing. We did it since we had many hours to kill at airport. They kept coming up and harassing us to buy more and... More

The ice cream is absolutely delicious, but exactly the same price as London, New York or any other big city. The pastries are very dry too. The upstairs lounge area is quite nice, but not really somewhere you'd want to hang out, much nicer to cross the road and sit directly on the river front.

For years I was a faithful customer at Blue Pumpkin’s places, whether in Phnom Penh or Siem Reap – breakfast three or four times a week; dinner twice a week; afternoon tea often. Good range of excellent food at sensible prices. Then three months ago I stopped going. Reason? Loud muzak from which one cannot escape. It was often so... More
