An overpriced expat eatery where servings are small and service is slow. Cocktails are very pretty, but otherwise nondescript. They also have sweet and sour dishes on the menu. You have to be over 60 to even remember such blast-from-the-past tasteless chow.

Don't be put off by the shady bars nearby like a lot of food places to eat you might walk by if you didn't know better. We dropped in off the street after wandering around looking for somewhere to eat in a district with way too many to choose from. Great atmosphere friendly and welcoming staff as we found everywhere... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our first night in Phnom Penh as it was across the road from our hotel - and were defiantly not disappointed! We ordered the Khmer and Masaman curries which were both absolutely amazing. The owner out front of the restaurant was lovely, as was his wife inside waitressing. We are yet to find better... More

We had dinner at Lemongrass after reading about in our guidebook and we were not disappointed! The food is delicious, I can really recommend the khmer beef curry! Prices are reasonable, only the waitress was slow to react (we sat outside and had to knock on the window to get her attention). Apart from that a very nice experience, we... More

We loved lemongrass. During our short stay in Phnom Penh we ate here twice, right next to our hotel and the riverfront and the food prices are great! Also have amazing cocktails, worth the little bit extra for the treat :) prompt and friendly service. We loved the pad Thai and the peanut chicken curry. Delicious!

Lemongrass Restaurant is too expensive compaired to what you get. The food is quite ordinary and the beers are more expensive than in the other restaurants in the neighborhood ($2,5 for a can of Cambodia Beer). We ordered an appetizer - and it was served after the main courses! The aircon was at 17 degrees so it was a rather... More

The restaurant is just cross the road of our hotel. The staff are very nice and the food is delicious! We had dinner there. My partner had the Thai curry and I had the mango with sticky rice. Although we were not very hungry after a late lunch in another place, we just love the food! The restaurant is also... More

Somalil was our helpful server who welcomed us at the door and promptly seated us. She recommended some delicious cocktails on the happy hour and we enjoy the atmosphere as we had a look through the menu. The food was tasty and filling. We highly recommend. Thanks Somalil for making our experience so enjoyable.

I went with a friend who recommended this restaurant to me and I was not disappointed at all! Amazing thai food! We had the coconut soup, tamarind curry and pad thai (delicious!). Staff was very friendly, affordable prices, but what I appreciated the most was the fact that they could easily turn a meat dish into a vegetarian, and that... More
