Sopheara is our go-to destination when we want an easy, delicious dinner after the rush of a busy day. Service can take a while when the restaurant is busy, but the flavour combinations are worth waiting for, and the staff are fantastic. Prices are low, and if the wine list is a little lacking, the Lychee shakes and BYO option... More

Relaxing atmosphere, attentive friendly service, Sophea is a charming host. Been there on many occasions and never disappointed. Very reasonably priced.

I have been her about 6 times and had a different meal every time and never been disappointed! Amazing food. The sort of place you want to tell your friends about but don't incase you can't get back in ! It's not big or flash but with the food, it doesn't have to be

We have been to this restaurant a few times and it never fails to deliver on service and food. Prices are very reasonable and no problem taking leftovers home. This restaurant delivers some of the best Asian food in Auckland

We had visited Cambodia and spent some time there enjoying their lovely food. To find a restaurant which was close to the flavours we experienced in Cambodia was great.

Hidden gem this place. Great menu and selection, and probably pretty unique too. Not the best service and the portions are small.

We have been to this great restaurant countless times over the last 10 years. And the warmth of the greeting from the hostess has never diminished. And of course the food is still wonderful. Tasty, fresh, interesting. After a shared entree for the three of us and three mains we couldn't eat it all. And I tried really hard! This... More

Good food and okay service. The takeaway portion size can be pretty small but not too bad for the value. It is a hidden gem.

We are very lucky to have this awesome little Cambodian restaurant just up the road. The hostess is charming and greets us like familiar friends even though we have only been a few times. Although it takes a while to wade through the extensive menu there are some great Cambodian classics along with staple dishes to suit all palates. The... More

This is my second visit to this restaurant. We found the food excellent except we were a little disappointed in the duck salad. The salad was great but the duck was a little on the tough side. All other dishes were excellent. The service is great. They are attentive without being pushy. I am giving it four stars as the... More
