Awful mock ham with my spagetti with tomato, didn’t say anything about it in the menu. My partner got tasteless deep fried dumplings with barely any filling, accompanied by ketchup. The staff were not very serviceminded at all. Very disappointing over all.

I was excited for a vegetarian meal before hand, but was disappointed. There was no one else there, the portions were small and not tasty. Any street food place is better tbh.

Perhaps we were unlucky with our food choices but the lok lak I had was incredibly dry and my partner's spaghetti tasted like it came from a can. A fair disappointment as we had previously had delicious veggie food in Cambodia.

Reviewing three weeks of Cambodia, this was the best vegetarian food that we got. Very flavorful and tasty. I especially enjoyed the banana flower tofu.
