This is the best Cambodian restaurant I've been to in London.... it also happens to be the worst Cambodian restaurant I've been to in London. I have travelled to Cambodia before but its been quite a long time so can't really remember what I ate. My best food refs would come from a recipe book I own by Rick Stein... I spot only a couple of authentically Cambodian dishes on the menu, namely the Lok Lak Beef and Fish Amok. Our set menu contained the beef dish. But for the rest we received a plate of what could only be described as generic Asian starters; spring rolls, satay sticks and some kind of mini samosa. The second course of garlic mushrooms and mango salad despite not sounding that exotic were a couple of my favourites. For main the Japanese Prawns (not even trying to make it sound Cambodian anymore) had a floury sort of feel withing the breadcrumb batter, Spring chilli chicken was unassuming. But the beef dish was nice and tender. Maybe I'm being picky today but the steamed rice was overcooked and the beer was from Singapore. Besides the food the staff were very friendly. Miso not impressed
