We had a very nice meal here complemented by a bottle of French wine, all at a very reasonable price and in a very nice setting. It was very busy when we were there, so we were glad we had a booking. But in spite of the numbers we still got good service from staff.

I would rate this 4.5 if possible. Ambience, creativity and service - five stars. Food though was 4 stars - hence the four stars. This is an elegant creative restaurant with loads of promise.

Great restaurant near the city centre. There's a LOT of authentic Cambodian dishes to choose from, paired with an extensive wine list. Staff is friendly and professional. Sure, it's pricier than most Cambodian restaurants, but if you're looking to treat yourself to a great dinner in Phnom Penh: this should be on your list.

Talk about disappointment. That is the one thing this restaurant delivered to us: disappointment––big time. My wife and I made a reservation at this restaurant because it was recommended as "one of the best, if not the best" in Phnom Penh by the concierge on our Mekong River boat tour.

We walked in off the street and were found a table, but would recommend booking ahead. Great Khmer food, lovely ambience if possibly top end coastwise. Thoroughly enjoyable.

We ordered the tasting menu for dinner, it was good, but some dishes were way too spicy. Nice restaurant, with outdoor and indoor dining area. It just a bit pricey, spent around USD100 for 2 pax.

Delicious and beautifully presented food, a nice fancy-ish restaurant and great service! Apparently one of Cambodia's best chef's! Try the Saraman curry or the pumpkin dish.
