“Good place to eat and drink.”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Had dinner here once, lunch on a number of occasions and always found the food good, from snacks to a meal. It seems popular with the backpacker fraternity, and with regular tourists alike.Couldn't fault the service, as always in Cambodia, fast and friendly. Cold beer with a warm welcome. Perfect.

We were staying down the road from Same Same and it was our favourite place to eat breakfast during our stay. Great breakfasts that were very cheap and LOVE the tuna salad and rice with veges. You can also exchange money here. Coco the manager is lovely and lovely to see his smiling face every morning.

Didn't stay here, but ate here everyday as it was close by. The feta and blue cheese salads are AMAZING. The plain burger with cheese was the best my boyfriend had in months. The staff are very friendly, the bathroom is clean and the place overall has a great chill-out vibe to it. Can't fault it really.

I stumbled across this place trying to find my way back to my guesthouse one night, and got chatting to a mad Englishman who I think worked there... Anyways he convinced me to stay and eat there, which I did, the good was great and happy hour meant one FREE beer with a meal, so I came back and ate there again the next night... Funky long haired Khmer guy recognised me... Nice spot, will probably eat there again when I head back to PP

We spent some days in phnom penh having dinner in this very friendly and happy restaurant. The owner and his staff are very friendly and food good. Music and lots of young traveller. You can arrive alai late and they cook and help you.

We dropped in here for dinner, which was great ! The ambience is nice, and the people friendly. Even though we're a long way past our "load up the backpack and travel" days, it took me back to past days, in a good way !
It's relaxed, laid back, they pay good music, and we enjoyed it. I cant comment as to the accommodations, and the bar toilet was a bit "borderline", but nonetheless we had a relaxed, and enjoyable evening here, with good food, good drinks and good company - what more can one ask ?
