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. And given Cambodia’s long relationship with France, it is no surprise the French food is also of particular note in Phnom Penh. Phnom Penh is great place to experience a bit of real Cambodia, have a couple of Cambodian meals and maybe try some street food, explore the French bistros and the city’s developing coffee culture, and know that you can always find a taste of home too.

The Riverfront

Sisowath Quay from Street 184 to Street 100

Restaurants and bars of all sorts including classics like the FCC line the riverfront road (Sisowath Quay) and the roads radiating off the riverfront. Most are open all day and into the evening. The riverfront is particularly popular in the early evening but it’s a great place to stroll any time of day. Have a snack or a meal, relax at a street side cafe and watch the passing riverfront scene. A couple of the city’s best bar streets also stretch  off the riverfront. Both Street 104 and Street 110 at the northern end of the riverfront area and Street 136 in the middle are packed with bars, restaurants and guesthouses..


City Center
The central city area stretching back from the riverfront, bordered roughly by Wat Phnom in the north and Independence Monument to the south.

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. .


Streets 172
Street 172 between Street 19 and Street 13

The couple of blocks of Street 172 behind Wat Ounalom (2 blocks off the riverfront) has become a budget traveler area, picking up the slack from the old lake scene. There are several low priced hotels and guesthouses and a variety of budget-minded bars and restaurants line the street. Also check out Street 258 near the Palace for more budget places.


Boeung Keng Kang 1, between Norodom and Monivong, south of Sihanouk

The northern end  of BKK1 around Streets 278 and 282 has the greatest concentration of restaurants, bars and shops but new places are popping up across the entire area, especially new coffee shops. Check out the neighborhood on the east side of Norodom, especially along Streets 29, 21, and 308. It is now home to a quickly growing collections of unique little bars, cafes, restaurants and boutique hotels..
