Unfortunately, we have few memories of this, and no notes. The menu claims that the secrets of Cambodian cuisine were lost in the 70s during the Khmer Rogue purges, and the cuisine offered here is a new Cambodian food based on the chef’s memories of his childhood meals.
We do remember that the experience felt a bit like eating on garden furniture in someone’s front room, and I seem to remember the windows being very steamy. I think we had the set menu, with some buddhist cabbage on the side. Overall, I suspect the food was “OK”.
