The Food

  • The food is really good.
  • The fried chicken is one of the best chicken including the sauce.
  • They have a wide selection of dishes to choose from – not limited to Khmer or Thai dishes only.
  • Fish amok is highly recommended.
  • The dessert was also quite impressive. The fried ice cream was delicious and not overwhelming in its sweetness.
  • Other options are equally mouth watering.
  • They offer several types of drinks to go with your meal.

The Location and Ambiance

  • The location is quite ideal since it is in an area where many restaurants and condos are located.
  • It is not that accessible though, if you find yourself on the other side of Sihanouk Boulevard.
  • From the outside, it looks like just another house that is overcome with vines.
  • Inside, it is a very relaxing place – quiet, peaceful, and almost spa-like.
  • There are several dining areas, a pond, and several types of seating to choose from.

The Service

  • Service is okay, but because of the size of Khmer Surin Restaurant, it seems like there is less coverage of waiters.
  • However, their staff are able to speak different languages well enough – especially Khmer and English.
  • The staff seems accommodating to requests, and are patient enough if you don’t know what you want to eat.
  • They are willing to wait for what you would like, and if they notice that you are trying to get their attention, they are quick enough to make a move.
