We had a meal at this restaurant last week. I came away from the experience having eaten 3 delicious courses. I had the mango salad, prawns with chilli and the flourless chocolate cake. It was worth reserving a table as the restaurant was very busy...More

We went for the set menu which was pricey (for the town) but well worth it - wine of our choice; several interesting and flavourful hot dishes and warm, friendly service. All for a good cause too - highly recommend.

Lovely atmosphere with attentive, friendly staff. We had the set menu which was a little pricey by Cambodian standards but not really for what you get. It gave a selection of dishes to try, all very well cooked and presented. Go hungry!

Our tour guide brought us here for dinner. We really enjoyed their set menu. It was probably our best meal that we had in Cambodia. It was the best cocktails that I had in Camodia and Thailand.
