Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

A must do if you have time on your hands in Battambang. Holistic local experience (from picking the food from the local market to cooking in the traditional manner), delicious food (fresh traditional Khmer that will remind you of Moms cooking) and a great tour...guide. Vannack likes to talk, but if you’re willing to listen, your mind will opened to the heart and soul of Cambodia with an emphasis on the history of her food. Thanks Vannack, will see you in a couple years when your restaurant is up and running again!More

When i first found out about the Smoking Pot I thought they were a regular restaurant. When I arrived I found out that they are a street vendor restaurant with a permanent location. There are tables to sit at but the food is cooked outside...in large pots. Really good Khmer food with an at home feel. If you catch them when they are open, you're in for a good meal.More

We booked onto the cooking class and were extremely impressed. We visited the local market first to pick up our fresh ingredients before going back to the cooking school nearby. I am not normally that into cooking but i had a fantastic time learning how...to cook the local foods. The food tasted amazing and we were given copies of all of the recipes from the restaurant. We also ate at the restaurant later that evening and the food was amazing (at such a good price). Vannak was such a great teacher, thankyou for making this experience so great.More

We really enjoyed the cooking class. We git picked up from our hostel and started with visiting a local market to buy all necessary ingredients, then we had a short walk trough some farms and were able to learn more about local vegetables. The cooking...was much fun and it was really delicious. We made fish amok and beef stir fry. Very enjoyable, we would definitely recommend! HellenaMore

Authentic, home-cooked Cambodian food...prepared to order...with the freshest ingredients....at great prices! Need I say more!? Don’t miss their outstanding fresh fruit shakes...Excellent English is spoken here and the menu is printed in English. Don’t worry...you can easily adjust the amount of spiciness...Just ask them. There...are also a number of vegan options.More

Superb stall/restaurant on the river front. The best food we ate in Cambodia. As Van explained to us, they only use fresh ingredients and the proper amounts for traditional recipes. Everything we had here was just tastier and better than anywhere else we ate.

I enjoyed every moment of this course, that felt more like a nice morning, cooking outdoor with some frieds. The location is traditional, with outside ovens, fresh ingredients, bought from the market by us, a little earlier and the host is friendly, with a genuine...sense of humour and willing to share cambodgian tradition and promote his cuisine and culture. And of course, the food, wich is spectacular! Two courses, made by us from the beginning, one more tasty than the other!!!! Try this cooking class, you'll love it!!!!!More
