Communicating with the staff in both Thai and English, we ordered Tom Yum Goong, Pak Choy with garlic and boiled rice.

Have eaten here a half a dozen times, and the food is consistently good. The staff listen carefully as you take your order, and the food is delivered promptly. Highly recommend in its price range.

I come here every couple of weeks for the dependable, affordable food selection that has never disappointed me yet. Often fairly full, the young Khmer ladies serving are incredibly efficient and pleasant.

They do all the typical dishes of the area, but I try the shrimps with the green pepper that was amazing! Nice place also to take a beer watching the street

Food was very good. We wanted a more western type meal after days of Kymer foods. Just hard to find places, no street names etc

We ate here for dinner based on tripadvisor reviews and can happily confirm that this place is fab. Really great food and lovely service from the same young guy who has served us both times! So refreshing to be able to eat your meal within 20-30 minutes of ordering compared to a lot of other restaurants in Cambodia where the... More
