3 years on from my last experience at Chiang Mai Riverside, I decided to give this place another go for dinner on a rainy day. Food tastier than it had been 3 years ago, particularly enjoyed the prawn cakes - just the right amount of lemongrass taste in the mixture. Service this time round is faultless, whereas 3 years ago... More

Whenever my friend and I spoon out the curry bowl to the dregs we know we've found another great Thai place. Location is great, service is lovely, food is YUMMY, and prices are low. Only MINOR complaint: My 'shrimp red curry' contained 6 cocktail prawns, i.e. the tail was still attached, which usually means they are pre-bought and pre-cooked. Not... More

My daughter and her Khmer husband shared this restaurant with us as one of their favourites when in Phnom Penh. I agreed food and staff made a memorable evening with family.

Fabulous little northern Thai restaurant that also does Khmer food too. Rare find as meals are consistently good and very reasonable. Would highly recommend you visit when you are in Phnom Penh. Staff are lovely too and always smiling.

Consistently goid food. Readonably priced. Good location. Dont sit on the footpath tables. They are the best but constantly pestered by beggars holding babies staring at you from 1 foot away and kids selling junk. Staff very slow to move seller kids from the tables inside.

This place has both Thai and some local dishes. Prices are cheaper than most along the riverside and service is great. Would eat here again

This is a pleasant little restaurant on Sisovath Boulevard, facing the Tonle Sap River. For lunch, we ordered Phat Thai with pork and Thai basil shrimps with rice. My wife is Thai, so we were expecting quite spicy food, unlike most Cambodian cuisine. Although the food tasted quite nice, it was not at all hot and spicy as in Thailand,... More

We found this little café on the Esplanade near the joining of the Tonle Sap and the Mekong river. We have spent some time in Chiang Mai, Thailand and love Thai food. This café has authentic northern Thai food at a good price. We ate dinner there on two occasions. The price for food and drink is very reasonable. We... More
