370 St 163, Olympic, Chamkarmon, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Situated south of the normal foreigner hangouts. Menu identical to Siem Reap counterpart: Asian focus with burgers, spaghetti, and a large selection of fresh-made drinks. Expect minimal English, and a loyal young clientele of Chinese and Khmer locals. Note that the "special" on the bread menu usually means egg. Previously at St 276, reported moved to new more upscale venue January 2017. Open Mon-Sun 8:00am-8:00pm.

I love Viktking house - Edit

I love the menu. The decor is nice best decor in Seam Reap. I thought the prices are reasonable and I love that the prices are in khmer riel NOT the dollar. Most dishes are less than 10,000៛ which is $2.50. I don't know why some reviews are saying it is expensive. I would recommend there signature dish the sizzling hot plate.

Pros: Some vegan options

Cons: Very crowded during lunch time but that means the

Food lukewarm and a lot of fake meat - Edit

I really didn't enjoy the food here. I ordered a tofu sizzling hotplate and while it sizzled, the food was lukewarm at best. The tofu was soft and unappetizing, and they had cooked it with fake meat (which i generally try to avoid as i don't like how close it can taste to real meat). The food was reasonably price, but there is a lot of fake meat and fish on the menu and not much in the way of vegetables.

The food came out really quickly and the staff were friendly and fairly attentive. And the food itself is reasonably priced.

The Politics of Greed - Edit

I have been coming to the Vitking Hosue for years, primarily the location in Siem Reap before frequenting the Phnom Penh locations. To be perfectly honest, the food here is spectacular. Always has been, and most likely will retain that quality. The unfortunate reality, however, is that the owners insist on raising the prices every few months.
I requested to speak to the young Khmer male, who was in his office not even five meters away. The response I got was that he was "too busy." I went in his office anyway to discuss the pricing. The first words that came out of his mouth was "profits," where if he keeps the price the same, they do not make money. No mention at all about employee salaries or keeping a high standard...just profits. This based on the cost food here in Cambodia.
This is absolute rubbish considering no other restaurants besides The Vegetarian has increased their pricing, and all three restaurants are constantly crowded. You make your money off of volume, which they have. The Vitking House is coming dangerously close to matching western costs in restaurants, and it comes down to one thing and one thing only. Greed.

Bring your own dishcloth - Edit

Why do Cambodian restaurants all put trashcans under the table? When dining room needs cleaning, doesn't help to have the trash beneath you. Apart from that, the food here was so-so, typical Chinese. Vietnamese spring rolls were a bust. Ornamental straws seemed like it had not been washed. The fruit juice mix itself was pretty good.

Pros: air con upstairs

Cons: dirty
