Description: Relax, wine and dine in this informal yet quietly elegant little restaurant & Bar. Located in a converted French colonial shop-house, the ambience exudes vibes of the colonial era, with overtones of lost Khmer Empire mystique. We pride ourselves on exceptional and personalised service and an extensive menu, with authentic Khmer dishes, creations from other Asian cuisines and, if you're looking for reminder of "home", a wide selection of Western cuisine. We boast the coldest draft beer in town and an extensive list of wines from all over the world. Enjoy a snack, a cool drink, a cocktail or a full meal at Khmer Delight - and all in the emerging dining precinct, in the beating heart of Battambang City.

“Great atmosphere and tasty food”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

We stumbled across this place when the White Rose was closed (At 8pm on a Saturday night- go figure!) and it turned out to be a really good find.

This place specialises in Khmer and fusion food with some interesting offerings such as Khmer lasagne (I bottled out of ordering this as I thought it might be just a bit weird!). We had a very tasty beef loc lac- the meat was a little tough but the flavours were great, and pork and black bean with aubergine fritters which was one of the best dishes we had during our month travelling round the region.

Reasonably priced wine was available as well as cheap beer and a range of spirits. The atmosphere was really nice- cozy and vibrant.

Would definitely recommend!

“Great Service, Great Value, Very Comfortable, Very Good Food...”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

We ate here three nights in a row. The reason: Value and comfort. We'd found the perfect place for a family with a young child - one of two outside tables with sofas and two fat cushioned chairs. Needless to say we also found the food was very good - from the Luk Lak to the Fish Fry Basket - and very reasonably priced. The fish basket with shrimp, squid and fish filet plus fries was $5. The Luk Lak $4.
Add in having a choice of wine for only $10.50 a bottle (I had the Chardonnay) that all in all we couldn't force ourselves to eat any place else at night. Oh, I can't forget to mention the chocolate cheesecake. Jeez, heaven.

In summary I can't say they were the best meals we'd ever had (Tripadvisor asked that) but for comfort and value in my humble opinion Battambang had no better.

“cold beer, great service”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

So far the coldest beer I've had in Asia. Very impressed. Even more impressed that the manager or owner noticed that I hadn't eaten my meal as it hadn't come out very well... And approached me to ask if it was ok. I told him that i was happy with it and didn't want to eat any more, but didn't press the point. I certainly had no expectations as I've been travelling in Asia for a while, and most resturant proprietors just want your cash. He offered to not charge for the meal and replace it with something else off the menu, which came out really well. Was a really good move on his behalf to build goodwill, so I feel I should return the favor and share the story on TripAdvisor.

“Going from strength to strength”
Reviewed 13 January 2014

I have eaten at Khmer delight 6 times over the past two weeks. On each occasion the place was full and on at least two nights I observed clients being turned away because of a full house. The re-decoration and enhanced fixtures and fittings have contributed to a comfortable and relaxing ambience. The newly uniformed staff not only look good but are good - competent, polite and friendly. The kitchen staff play their critical role well, turning out very tasty meals which I have heard numerous customers commenting very favourably upon.

“Sorry, you gave me a wrong bill.”
Reviewed 10 January 2014 via mobile

The Thom Yam Chicken, Prawn is extremely salty. And we ordered 2 mixed fruit shake, it is 3 dollars totally, but you gave us some fresh iced orange, water dish list on the bill for 3.5 dollars. It is small money so we paid it. But the experience was really not nice. Need to be improved!
