Great food at a reasonable cost. Just off the street and up the stairs. They have accommodation also but didn't stay there so can't comment on that aspect.

We came to this bar street and saw the terrace up there. The entrance is not so easy to find. But you just need to go around the corner. Cheap, good cocktails and very very friendly owners! The atmosphere is amazing! Thank you so much :) I hope we can come back soon!

Stopped a couple of times during our stay in Phnom Penh, decent view from the roof terrace to escape the busy streets, both the Khmer food & Western food was great, all reasonably priced, with a Khmer Curry costing only a couple of dollars! The beer is cheap aswell at only $0.75 and the Passion Fruit Mojito was fantastic at... More

We'd been to a few places to eat around Phnom Penh but after we discovered The Laughing Fatman we didn't eat anywhere else! They have a wide selection of Cambodian and western food at reasonable prices - a sandwich is around $3, Khmer curries for $3.50, larger pizzas for $5 and you can also get a massive full English breakfast...

We came here because of the Tripadvisor reviews. We ordered a pizza margherita (5,50 dollar), tofu curry (3 dollar), a chicken schnitzel sandwich (3,95), two beer (0,75 dollar each), two gin and tonic (2 dollar each) and 3 mojito (2 dollar each). We sat on the nice terrace, protected from the heavy rain. The super friendly boss came over with... More

We read about this place online and found the side street entrance with signs pointing to the rooftop bar fourth level. Once we go to the top we found it deserted so we went to the next floor down which was also empty. One more floor down (first floor up) and there was the restaurant. We were welcomed warmly and...

The owner of this establishment helped us get taxi's to other areas in Cambodia, he was extremely helpful, and friendly. The food was good enough to come back for, and the drinks were very reasonably priced.

Went here off of recommendation in our guide book. Had pizza (very good), pad thai (ok), beer (great at 75c) and a cosmopolitan (very poor). Biggest problem was having to look at some guy (westerner) literally trawling through the contents of bags and bags of garbage just up the street during the entire meal. He was still at it when...
