The restaurant is nothing special. We got Khmer food - but nothing really interesting. We had sweet sour tofu (~6000 Riel), a soup (10000 Riel) and a udon noodle dish (~6000)
The menu isn’t really helpful, most of the dishes have the same name and in many menus some pages are missing 😅

Great lunch buffet

Fantastic and varied lunch “buffet”, starting around noon and ending when food runs out (~2pm?) where you pay by the weight of your meal. The selection varies from day to day, but you can always expect several protein and veggie dishes to choose from. The “soy jerky” is great. When you go to pay, they will ask if you want “bai” (rice).

Outside of lunch hours, the soups are very popular with locals, but contains some weird cuts of (fake) meats that are common in Asia, but might be chewy / off putting to westerners. They also have some decent interpretations of Japanese and Chinese dishes.

The restaurant is also air conditioned and has WiFi.

Pros: Cheap ($2-$3), Varied lunch buffet

Cons: Shy staff didn’t speak much English

Fake meat a bit too real

Personally, I really don't like fake meat substitutes. I found the fake meat here to be a bit too close for comfort which put me off the rest of my food. I had a teriyaki dish, and i found the sauce far too heavy heavy on the aniseed.

They also have a lunch buffet, but i haven't been back to try it out. The only good thing is it's reasonably priced.

Pros: Cheap, Friendly staff

Cons: Fake meat too realistic

Es gibt deutlich Bessere in der Stadt

Der Tisch wackelte, obwohl in Khmer und Englisch ausdrücklich Ei ausgeschlossen, war es dabei. Haben die dann einfach runtergepuhlt. Der Service ist unfreundlich und langsam. Sterne für: Vegetetarisch und klimatisiert.

Affordable, good, varied menu

A great restaurant especially if you're struggling to find pure veg options in Phnom Penh, though it's not immediately obvious that everything's veg.

What's great is the menu, which includes Korean and Japanese style dishes.

Some dishes are mid price range, as is the weekday lunchtime buffet. However it's possible to have a relatively cheap meal, under two dollars, and all the food is good!

Pros: varied menu, budget and pricier options, good food

A decent option

The space is nice, a/c as mentioned. I also had some language barrier issues. Definitely no English when I was there (except on the menu). And I even tried showing my waiter an explanation of vegan written in Khmer, and he wouldn't or couldn't read it! So I went with something that seemed vegan, and I think it was. But it wasn't that great. Basically the vegan version of Cambodian mystery meat. It got the job done, but it was heavy and not that remarkable. Seems like options are limited in the city though, so if you're nearby and need a vegetarian place it'll do. Maybe if I wasn't vegan I'd be more adventurous on the menu, and maybe other things are better than what I got...

Pros: comfortable

Cons: no english, mediocre food

Nice clean restaurant

A nice air conditioned restaurant located on the first floor.
Items are between 1.5 to 3 USD.
Plenty of choice.
We ordered the fried rice and were not disappointed.

Pros: Good price and tasty food

Cons: Language barrier
