That flooding don't look good! Why with so many of the new builds, the governor or planning did not insist on the infrastructure being in place. Damage or inconvenience must be high to people, dwellings and business.

Could your friend get compensation for loss of business and flooding on property?

thought of starting this thread to post all food in cambodia, be it 1 star or 5 star, khmer cuisine or any other cuisines

start off with topaz restaurant on 136 norodom, french modern cuisine

amuse bouche, escargot in wine reduction
Image

starter trio of lobster, scallop, foie gras
Image

escargot in herbed butter
Image

soup lobster bisque with foie gras
Image

soup wild mushroom
Image

entree duck breast with foie gras
Image


entree prawn spaghetti seafood reduction sauce
Image

desert souffle flambe with grand marinier
Image

overall one of the best french cuisine in phnom penh, cant much about the service though
How is the atmosphere there? I don't mind the price tag, but hate places that are stuffy and pretentious. Anyway a twice a year birthday splurge (Me and my significant other) ... Did Plantation, Les St Georges, Armands the last few visits .. this place on the to try list.

Also can get a passable quality bottle of wine there in the $30 to $50 range?

Cheers,

RD

atmosphere is relaxed, not too up tight or pretentious, 30 to 50$ not much, cheapest bottle i saw was 49$ from chile n oz, usually i ordered house wine, cant finish a bottle alone, my old lady is not a drinker
