Food here is so good and the people who run the Smokin Pot are lovely. We are here 3 nights running and every night it was packed. So good, highly recommend.

Stayed in Battambang for a week and ended up eating at smokin' pot numerous times.
Firstly the staff are great. It's a family run place which is always a good start. Vannak the owner is such a great guy, he loves sitting down for a chat and a joke (of which he has plenty!).
Secondly the food is outstanding. We tried most things on the menu while we were there and couldn't fault any dish we had. All the food is made fresh which takes time!! So don't get impatient because there will be someone in the kitchen smashing and grinding up your curry pastes/preparing your fresh ingredients from scratch. Just kick up your heels and relax. It will be worth the wait.

Vannaks cooking class is also a winner. Very intimate with max 5-6 people in each class. You go buy all the ingredients in the market and prepare everything yourself before cooking up a storm. Vannaks knowledge of Cambodian cuisine is second to none, he really knows his stuff. He's also a very very funny man when you get talking to him, which I suggest you do.

Lastly, did you know that they also have a roof top bar?? That's right. At around 6-7pm everynight on the rooftop where the cooking class is held, Vannak cracks open icy cold beers, mixes cocktails and entertains all those who come up for a look at the view (which is beautiful). And let me tell you, you will NOT find better value, tastier cocktails anywhere. Go check it out.

Thank you Vannak and family. You guys really made our stay in Battambang!

This one is about the experience and if you haven't experienced simple Cambodian food give this one a go, nothing fancy here. They run up and down the street buying your alcohol to order well as the critical meat condiments.
