We eat here whenever we're in the area. Excellent Cambodian food, fairly authentic, friendly service, generous portions, pleasant ambiance and incredible value, especially for lunch. Definitely our favourite Auckland restaurant. Not as well-patronised as it deserves to be, its location doesn't help but it's only 10 minutes from the motorway.

I am going to Cambodia in a few months, so thought I would check out Sopheara to get a taste of what to expect! Our family eat a lot of Thai and Vietnamese food, and we found the food here exceptionally good. The drinks were also great, especially the fresh mango juice!
Friendly service, lovely ambiance and layout, huge range to choose from in the menu!!
The prices were also very reasonable compared to other Auckland restaurants. Will definitely be going back regularly, and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone looking for authentic Indo-Chinese food in Auckland!

Excellent, authentic Khmer food. We are regulars here, despite it being a long way from our home on the North Shore. Having been to Cambodia a few times, it is definately authentic. Our Khmer friend here on Holiday was also impressed. well priced, and excelllent service. Worth the trip out.

This is a great little restaurant now across from the sprawling Sir Barry Curtis parl. Unassuming and simple with very tasty and well presented dishes that just might even be authentic Cambodian (not having been there I can't confirm). The favors are fresh and clean and with very reasonable prices this makes for a great easy dinner sharing a bottle (or two) of the good wines from your own cellar or from the off license around the corner.

This is a great place to eat with family or friends. Don’t be fooled by the unassuming outside, this place is a gem. With the best flavours from Cambodia, you can enjoy some amazing taste sensations with curries and my favorite spicy squid. The service is always friendly and attentive without being intrusive.
