Tips for you
I love the atmosphere of this restaurant. We have eaten there twice in the evening, one of which was new year's eve and, being open air, we were able to watch the beautiful light show from the floating lights across the sky in LPB. Both nights we were treated to the traditional music and dance show. The food was tasty, though be careful if you order the Mekong fish dishes which has lots of sharp bones, cut in a way that increases their danger! That said, the food was delicious. I found the staff to be very happy and friendly. The wine list could be improved, I didn't see any wine options but there are plenty of beers and cocktails on offer. I get the sense of a newish restaurant trying very hard and doing pretty well. And the value for money was amazing. We ordered al-carte and our shared meal was about $12 with beer! I felt they should have charged more. Recommended.
