The restaurant is not bad but the prices are quite high for Phnom Penh and the choice in the menu are not very traditional (at least this is what I think). Almost all customers were tourists.

This place has a big variation of vegetarian food. Plates are $2.75-3.5 and rice os just $0.5. It's hard to find good vegetarian food and also such cheap one. Highly recommended.

Lots of Veggie options. Very reasonably priced. Visited rather late one weeknight as the kitchen was about to close. Tried their Amok. Just ok. Fried options not for me. Still would go back another time. Pleasant patio and service was good.
