I've eaten at The Sugar Palm in both Siem Reap and Phnom Penh. Food great at both but I would particularly like to recommend the Phnom Penh restaurant to ensure it gets the local recognition it deserves. I've had both lunch and dinner in Phnom Penh - the food is very consistent and there are excellent renditions of some of... More

Excellent vegetarian options. Lovely staff and a beautiful restaurant. We really enjoyed our meal. Though the dessert menu could do with more than just ice cream in my opinion. Still we loved it!

As the title explains I had just some from Vietnam that day where the food is ridiculously cheap and was abit suorised with the prices of some of the dishes on the menu. Nevertheless it was a really good meal and the service was excellent so I can't complain. I would return again. (Try the tofu Khmer curry)

I didn't know how good Cambodian food could be until we went here for dinner. It was a wonderful discovery - we loved their fresh spring rolls and we ordered their fried rolls twice! For the mains, we of course got the fish amok and we liked very much the healthy raw veggies with sauce called Prahok (so we decided... More

The restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel and so we have it a try. We ordered the Amok prawn and Khmer curry based on the waitress' recommendations. The Amok was great but the curry did not stand out. We would have recommended something else if we knew of the similarities between the Amok and curry.

The food here was amazing! The best we've had in Cambodia so far! Tasty and authentic. There was something for everyone (kids included). Service was a little slow, but very friendly. We would definitely come back but are leaving tomorrow. Highly recommend.

Fantastic food,best service,and very clean. I had the amok prawn curry which was to die for a very cold angor beer to wash it down. Owner was most helpful when asked any questions. Will be back😀
