Easy to find, one in the centre, the other on the road to the airport, both very nicely styled. very attentive staff. food heavily influenced by thai. but there are purely cambodian dishes as well.

Favorite Dish: Spicy shrimp salad. Pla Goong
Shrimp mixed with lime juice, slied lemon grass, red onion, shredded lime leaf, chili and mint
Plear: cambodian
Beef mixed with sliced lemongrass, roasted peanuts, onion, spring onion, string beans, mint lime juice and chili
Red curry paste ( tofu or meat) with coconut milk with sweet basil
Angkor Beer
Rice, the sticky variety

We both enjoyed our dinner. twice really. the bill was 50.000 riels around 12 usd
you can dine out in the open at chivit thai or sit on cushons. quality of food is excellent
