This restaurant is a bit out of the way but well worth it. The owner came out to meet us and ensure we were enjoying our lunch. We had Pad Thai, mango salad and the red curry. All were very good. My sister said she did not like Pad Thai but soon changed her mind after eating this one. We... More

Amazing schnitzel, great cold Cambodia beer and really good prices. One of the best meals we had in Cambodia! We asked our tuk-tuk to come back and pick us up 1 hour later and works a treat.

The Crocodile River is situated right next to the river, just 3 minutes by tuktuk away from the tourist city center. That's one of the reasons I loved this place so much. In the muddy streets, you see how the real Cambodian people live and enjoy their life. The restaurant itself is very cosy, all outside under a roof with... More

It's out of the way but worth the tuktuk ride. Our driver came back for us 45 minutes later. Food was great and prices were decent. The best was the chicken schnitzel with peppercorn sauce!

Had a really tasty meal here. Ordered the pork trio and would definitely recommend. Washed it down with a Chimay Blue. Great to have a good selection of Belgian beers to choose from. Nice relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff.

They've shut down the croc farm down the way so it's more calm in the restaurant. Great 8% Belgian beers! Fun menu, but with more of a division between Beligium food from Europe and Thai food ala the wife in the kitchen. The 3 of us were totally satisfied by the quality of food and variety to choose from. Glad... More
