Passing by the Cambodge you can’t help but notice two things: the large and almost constant queue outside, and the heady mix of spices and fish sauce that wafts around the crowd. To me these are both very good signs where eating is concerned.
Don’t be put off by the queue outside though, the take-away option is as popular as the restaurant itself and the efficient staff see that the wait is never a long one.
The food itself is simple – Cambodian inspired noodle-soups, salads and curries with a choice of vegetables, prawns and meat, all gloriously fresh and topped with delicious crushed peanuts and coriander. The prawn Bo-Bun is the winner for me.
Reservation is not possible, instead you have to go in and leave your name and number, then they call you when your table is ready. In the meantime there are plenty of great bars and cafés in the area, not to mention the canal itself and a number of shops too should you require a canal-side aperitif.
