We had a drink here, but as one of the much smarter bars/restaurants opposite the river on Sisowath Quay the prices were consequently higher. Still excellent location and food looked good.

good central location to chill out with easy access to riverside. service is good and prices reasonable. Live band available on most days. The drinks a little disturbed by a the ? ?owner reprimanding loudly his workers in public.

Great place for drinks and dinner. Cheap but great quality. Excellent facilities clean toilets, pool table and outdoor seating. Had a few vegetarian options for food and cocktails and beer where cheap. Easy access to tuk Tuks and great view of river. A few beggars and kids come past this street though so if sitting outside please remember that.

Dear Customer, Our time standard to deliver food is between 15 to 20 minutes. However, if your order is arrived after a big group order so yours takes longer than normal but it is never 1 hour as you wrote. Also, if you felt that you waited longer than normal, why didn't you call waitress to complain and they were... More

We stopped everyday, be it for food or coffee, which all was very good. They have cooling mist spray which provides cool relief and allows you to sit comfortably outside and watch life go by. Staff very friendly and free WiFi. A great place to stop and refresh.

Good food and service make this one a nice hang-out on the river. It has a nice outside verandah where you can sit with a cool drink and enjoy the street life of this charming city.

The food is a bit more expensive than what you can find in the surrounding area but the pizza was good and the spring rolls were great so it was worth it for the variety on the menu. Streetside eating right across from the Tonle Sap river

First of all, the prices are still high in 2017. The service nearly not existing but sometimes a smile runs over the ladies faces (not all of them). The location is directly to the seafront. U may like it or not. It's a lot of traffic. A lot .... the beer with 1,5$ even in happy hour double priced .... More
