Fate Blessing Buddha

Overall rating: 5.0 stars 5 Reviews
Serves the typical mock meat Chinese food including rice dishes, noodles, tempura, vegetable dishes--with a modern take. Tiny place with air-con and is pleasant and clean. Little to no English spoken. Directions: Go in the entrance on Monireth Boulevard, to the right of the Lucky Supermarket entrance. Go up one floor using the escalators on your right hand side. Turn left towards the middle of the mall and then take the first right lane- you will see double doors leading outside. Go outside (it looks like you're heading for the car park) and the restaurant is on your left hand side. It's now on the first floor in a beautiful newly designed space. There are private dining rooms available too. Price: Moderate more-less

I had fried rice curry. It's actually fried rice with vegetable curry poured around it. An amazing recipe with lots of lime leaf and ginger. The restaurant has a really nice setting. Great place for a fancy dinner without being too expensive.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere

it's still hard to find, but worth trying. this remarkable restaurant is "hiding" in the city mall shopping center. just go up to the first floor leave the main building towards the parking lot.

the restaurant has air conditioning and is beautifully decorated. it's probably the best choice for elegant (vegetarian) dining in phnom penh. if you're a group of 6 or more people, try one of the VIP rooms.

the chinese dishes are superb. western style pasta and pizza i'd have elsewhere. yet i'd see it as a MUST GO place for vegetarians visiting phnom penh.

Pros: great atmosphere, great food, attentive service
Cons: hard to find

Tucked away gem..

We visited here in July 2012. We wrote down the directions and our hotel was a 5/10 min walk from here around the other side of the stadium, so if you're nearby I'd certainly make the effort to eat here once. The pin is spot on but you will have to take your time finding it- it is on the 1st floor sort of 'in' the carpark, so don't give up if you don't find it straight away!

The decor was lovely, it was small but a nice place to eat if air-con made it a tad cold!! As mentioned the staff get excited to see a foreigner which was sweet, lots of free green tea and fuss! Boyfriend had a mock meat burger which was amazing- I can't remember what I ate as I didn't take a photo but I know we left happy!

The prices are very reasonable considering that it's a nice sit down restaurant, would definitely return!

Pros: Lovely staff, good value and ambience, delicious burger
Cons: hard to find

A little veggie gem in PP

First off, a huge thanks to whoever updated the location details! How anyone managed to find this place in its new location is absolutely beyond me.

This is probably my favourite vegetarian restaurant in Phnom Penh, though there isn't much to get excited about for non fans of faux meat / fish.

Only very limited English is spoken and there's no English description for the dishes, but there is a full picture menu, so there are never too many problems ordering.

The cuisine is almost entirely Chinese and dishes range from US$1.50 to around US$6. The more expensive dishes are usually serves of mock meat / fish in various sauces and can generally be ordered in either small or large size. I've found that one small dish per person (with rice) to be more than adequate. Flavours are rich and well-balanced, and everything I've tried here has tasted great.

The cheaper dishes make for an excellent lunch, generally comprising a serve of steamed rice, a few pieces of faux meat, and some preserved vegetable. It doesn't sound like much, but these little set meals are surprisingly satisfying, and I love the TVP garnish that they put on top of the rice!

Most of the menu is suitable for vegans, though you may have to exercise caution with some of the mock meats (faux bacon in my experience usually has whey or egg albumen), and I suspect that the plum sauce dishes may contain honey.

The place is small (much smaller than it's previous location), and there isn't much atmosphere to speak of, but the food more than makes up for that. It's air conditioned and the staff are very friendly (and always excited to see foreigners).

You can't see this place from the main road, but the directions given above are good - just follow the access road to the right of the KFC and Fate Blessing Buddha will be the lonely little lego building on your right hand side. Another good landmark is the big blue water tower with an ANZ logo at the intersection of Monireth and Sihanouk Blvds - it's basically just behind that.

4.5 happy cows if you like faux meat / fish. 3 if you don't.

Pros: Great variety, Ingredients u won't find elsewhere in PP, Good flavours
Cons: Some dishes have a squirt of tomato, ketchup on top

A little oasis in the city

Clean, cool, good atmosphere, reasonably priced decent food.

Once I found the restaurant, I ate there every day I was in Phnom penh. The menu isn't that adventurous, but it makes up for it in other ways. It used to be down the road and they recently moved to the newly renovated place with a faithful local following.

Not much English spoken, but enough to get by. The menu has pictures to make it easier.

I recommend the Pok Choi if your body is crying out for green leafy veg after months in asia. The noodle soups are good and I really liked the mock 'pork' - pink, fried and sweet vegetable protein - lovely with rice.

The 'prawns' are so scarily fishy I had trouble eating them.

Pros: clean, air-con, tasty
Cons: lots of mock meat and not enough veg
