During our stay at the Sofitel in Phnom Penh we decided to try Hachi, and were incredibly glad we did so. The Sofitel has numerous options for great food so you can't go wrong anywhere, but Hachi is definitely the one that will stick in our memories. Miss Rothanak was incredibly friendly host, and attended to our every need.

After the meal we had the pleasure of meeting Chef Katayama who was very happy to give us a brief history of his cooking (which was exceptional), and definitely added to the night. All in all, the next time we're in Phnom Penh we will definitely be making a return trip to Hachi!

Vito, the manager, is super nice and scrupolous on all minimum details, and so are the waitress.

Chef Katayama was great and made superbe sushi. Fish was very fresh and tasty, plate presentation was very rare and classy.
A very touch of elegance.

This was the first time to Hachi.
I have to say that this place pleasantly surprised me as I did not expect such high quality sushi in Cambodia. The quality of the fish were better than at sushi restaurants I visited in the US. I really like the friendly staff who kept my cup full and made sure that our tables were kept clean by taking away plates after we were done with a dish. Head chef Katayama was really fun to talk to and taught us one or two things about sushi like what to look for when choosing a fish. The other staff were very friendly and greeted us with a smile when we arrived at the restaurant and made sure to give us the best seats available. The chef also gave us a tour of the restaurant and I have to say the interior looks really welcoming and the view to the garden was nice too. Overall, I am definitely planning to come back for my next visit.

I came here for friend and had the sushi set and sashimi. Chef Katayama has provided great service and food. Most importantly he has taught us a lot about sushi. The fish we ate was amazing and fresh. Ive had many sushi but this place was amazing and I must say Chef Katayama has a bright future ahead of him since he is the youngest Head Chef Ive ever seen at a top notch sushi restaurant. Once again, I highly recommend this place. If youre on a budget, then their lunch set menu is a great deal!! Arigato Chef Katayama!
