“not so good”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

If you have been to similar restaurants (Ngon in HCMC, Ngon in Hanoi, or Quan An Ngon in Hanoi), this place is disappointing. It has location and atmosphere. Staff are slow and indifferent. Foods are bad. Prices are not cheap either. Maybe, it is a place to go for VN coffee, but there are lots of good local cafe spots in Phnom Penh. Do not recommend for foods.

“Sorry to say it was yuk.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

I've been to Ngon in Ho Chi Minh City a couple of times and really liked it. I had originally decided not to go here and try somewhere else but due to weather and flooding, a tuktuk driver suggested Ngon - so I thought 'why not'?
It took awhile to review the large menu, but ended up choosing a beef bowl with vermicelli noodles with rice cakes as an entre.
The rice cakes looked great but tasted horrible. The green vegetable filling tasted like butane fuel. The main dish was ok, until I got to the bottom soup part and there was a flavour I couldn't put my finger on but it made me cringe. So unfortunately a thumbs down for me for this restaurant.

“#Disgusted#”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

As a South African Indian, i was passed off by 4 attendants before I was eventually seated in a corner.. food was bland, squid was tough/hard to chew... attendant was very rude and non-attentive. NB.. was in the bathroom with one of the attendants and she walked out of the stall without washing her hands!!!
I would advise people to skip this place...

“Viet & Khmer food among frangipani”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

All the wood structures, furniture & dinning wares plus the dinning table among frangipani trees brings up a natural feeling that's so welcoming & relaxing to dine in. The familiar Viet pho & spring rolls plus th Khmer food makes cosy meals

“Good Vietnamese food with a selection of Khmer dishes”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Pretty much standard, good Vietnamese food with a few Khmer dishes to select from. We ended up coming here for Khmer food (in addition to VN food) as the meals were very reasonably priced and the restaurant was conveniently located.

It you aren't sure where to go, a safe bet.

If you have eaten at the Hanoi or HCMC branches, you know what you will get.
