The food was great. The oyster mushrooms and the eggplant dip I can strongly recommend. Also located in the alleyway away from the hectic side of pub street which is nice for dinner.

But some nice Cambodian dishes. Hot, but an enjoyable place to sit for a while, had some nice chats with other travelers here. It is a small café, not a lot of seating, you may be waiting at peak times.

If your a vegan you have to support this place, the food is amazing better than any you can get at any non vegetarian establishments hands down!! It's that good. This is 5 star at its best you eat...

So far this was the best, most flavor complex food we've eaten in Asia! So understated and so excellent, we were in awe. It's in a lovely spot just one street parallel to Pub St and has a great vibe and busy ambience outside. All their dishes are guaranteed free of meat (so no fish sauce even), no MSG (rife... More
