We were just wondering looking for somewhere to eat and when we found we could have seafood BBQ were instantly happy. Somewhat different to an Australian BBQ partly BBQ and partly soup and vegetables. Lovely dinner again Phnom Pheng!!@😊

This was one of my favorite places and I still stop by because the food is pretty good. As my friend and I were the only guests I still found it rude and crude as the owner/manager spent 10 to 15 minutes yelling on her cell phone. She was in the back but you could hear her on the street.... More

Lovely staff with French owner, right on the river front. Cheaper than the other restaurants next to it. Got a massive chicken burger and chips for 3.5 dollars and a omelette with bread for 2.5 dollars. Omelette cooked to perfection and burger was a fresh piece of chicken breast. Hand cut chips as well! Highly recommend

A definitely simple, traditional restaurant owned and ran by the French-Khmer couple. Large choice of dishes, pretty good at low price. Or stop by for a beer ($0.55 a draft) and chat with Jean-Marc, the owner.

Never judge a book by the cover. The food is a fusion of Asian and European, very reasonably priced and delicious. The French speaking owner is an extremely welcoming "patron" and his staff friendly and efficient. Sat outside overlooking the river promenade. Very pleasant way to spend evening.

We stumbled across Taboo and rather liked the look of it from the outside for a spot of lunch. We were not disappointed. We had an excellent selection of local Khmer dishes and a decent glass of wine to wash it down. Well priced, beautiful food in an authentic setting - we were delighted. Thanks for looking after us so... More

I've checked out several restaurants including this one walking along the riverfront road. This one's menu looked the most appealing, especially since they didn't seem to charge New York prices. I couldn't find what I was looking for on the extensive menu so I asked the owner whether I could get fish curry and a glass of white wine. I... More
