One of my business associates is from Cambodia and suggested this place for lunch. I've never really had much Cambodian food before, so this was a treat. Cambodian dishes are delicious, with many natural flavors and textures. Service is excellent, atmosphere is relaxing and quiet. Quality of dishes is excellent-- carefully prepared and presented. Most meals are served family style.... More

Malena, was my host and server. Friendly and great service! Family owned! I enjoyed every order from fresh rolls, Tom yam Gai and the 52! Lemongrass jalapeño chicken. Anyone in San Jose and Campbell this place is a place if you enjoy Asian food.. Cut and cooked fresh. 😋

After visiting So East Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand) a few years ago we decided to visit Chez Sovan and I'm so glad we did. It's a hidden gem on a very busy street. We like to go to dinner early (6 to 6:30) and every time we go, there's very few diners but the place does start to fill... More

Our favorites here are the #42 fish and the coconut chicken curry but there are many wonderful dishes. The #42 fish is crispy with a lovely ground chicken sauce that is slightly sour and crunchy with ginger slivers. The curry is velvety and rich. Our kids love the chicken shish kabobs and the shrimp salad is good on a hot... More

If you look for the restaurant, you may easily miss it. It's along a busy multi-lane avenue, the signage, like the rest of the venue, is modest. But if you did happen to miss it, you would miss a lot. For sure, the interior could use remodeling. The Cambodian artifacts on the walls are fascinating, but one will have to... More

Excellent cuisine that is very indicative of the country. I lived in Asia for five years and felt right at home. Sweet service, yummy food and the only concern was it was a bit chilly in the restaurant and I was glad I brought a sweater. Nice combination of heat and spice in the dishes. Everything was served promptly and... More

We live about 25 miles south, and often find ourselves around Campbell and San Jose at lunchtime. Some friends took us to Sovan the first time a few years ago, and we find ourselves returning every few months. Cambodian cooking is mildly spicy, with interesting spicing and lots of dishes that are very different from other Asian cuisines. One of... More

OK - lots of meat. A tad too salty for my taste.
