Hit and Miss
Posted on 02 / 26 / 2009
Easy enough to find on the Northern side of St 184 between Norodom Blvd and the Royal Palace, this place has a small indoor dining area and a larger outdoor covered one. Not a great deal of ambience, but OK for a basic feed.
There's a massive menu here, but a surprising lack of variety - many of the soup and noodle dishes, for example, taste virtually identical. Ordering can be a little hit and miss as the English descriptions in the menu are occasionally misleading. A picture menu would help, but probably isn't practical considering the couple of hundred dishes available.
A lot of the dishes seem pretty random, the flavours generally aren't particularly well balanced, and there seems to be an overdependence on dried mushroom stalks. That said, there are some half decent dishes to be had. My favourites are the Golden Noodle Soup and Super Burger (not vegan). They also do a decent fried rice (though you'll have to tell them if you don't eat egg) and their sizzling dishes tend to be pretty good.
There's also a wide variety of shaved iced desserts and bubble teas (most of them very sweet) on offer.
With an average dish costing between 4000r and 6000r (US$1 - US$1.50), this place is cheap and cheerful, though there are better places to eat if you're only in PP for a brief trip.
Cheap, Huge menu
