Phnom Penh Dining & Restaurants

Phnom Penh offers the best dining in Cambodia, with choice, depth and authenticity exceeding the tourist towns. The Cambodian food is made-for-the-locals authentic whether street food or 5-star dining, and most western and Asian cuisines as well as contemporary dining are well represented. These days the city’s dining scene is evolving quickly. Interesting new venues are popping up all the time, especially contemporary cuisine and upscale Cambodian. There seems to have been a recent surge in new Mexican and Japanese restaurants as well. Several major fast food brands have also opened and international-style a/c&wifi coffeeshops now number in the dozens, and counting.

Restaurants, cafes, and coffee shops dot the entire area, with clusters of restaurants in some places such as the riverfront and Street 172. Though it's not really practical to stroll the area for restaurants, there are dozens of places in the area, making it a good part of town to base and take tuk-tuks to the restaurant of your choice, which is never far away. .
