I’ve never tried Cambodian food before so when I discovered there was a little restaurant near my house in Yoyogi, I decided to take a look and do a little review.
The decor was pleasantly cosy and quaint, giving plenty of good vibes. There was a decent crowd when I went around lunchtime.
The lunch sets were pretty good value for money, with a 1,000 yen budget per person you can get a main course, a salad, and rice. Tea is free flow.
We had the stir fried squid which was cooked in a slightly sweet and spicy sauce, and curry chicken that was creamy and flavourful.
Surprisingly, the salad and dessert were good as well, something you usually don’t expect for set menus.
I would say that Cambodian food has several elements that are similar to Thai food, so for Thai food lovers you would be pleased to have one more option.
Thai food is much more common around the world, but Angkor Wat makes me wonder why Cambodian food isn’t as popular as it should be.
I’d recommend anyone who is near the Shinjuku or Yoyogi area to give this authentic restaurant a try.
