Reviewed 9 July 2014

We came for lunch after being at the Grand Palace, it is not far away. The food was great, very cheap and the staff were very attentive. Would highly recommend a visit for lunch or dinner!

“Can see why it's #1”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

What a great place and an amazing cause. All the food was excellent and service as well. Was beautiful sitting outside with all the trees.

Got some items from 'friends n stuff' next door and had a pedicure at their nail salon for $5. Worth going to all three and supporting this wonderful organisation.

“Just go!”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

The work this organization achieves by getting the youth off the streets, trained in serving, cooking and English is inspirational!
The food and service is fantastic, more of a tapas style then the sister restaurants in Siem Reap and Sihanoukville, you won't be disappointed, try as many dishes as you can and the cocktails are a must.
Keep up the good work!

Dropped in for a quick bite and wasn't disappointed. Just had a couple of the small plates and they were great, also had a mango and chilli margarita which was delicious!
