Thai/Khmer Food Adventure

On our first night in Phnom Penh we wanted to try the local food in town. On wiki travel, I found a listing for Khmer Surin. The description reads: is a rather romantic restaurant that serves delicious Khmer and Thai food. The traditional Khmer seafood dish, amok, stands out. The waiters here were really friendly and helpful in suggesting dishes. We really enjoyed the food and returned a second time before our trip ended.

First floor of the restaurant includes some outdoor seating.

Second floor has floor seating. I don't think I'll ever be able to get used to this.

Third floor where we sat. All the sides are open so there's a nice breeze.

We started with coconuts! They weren't very sweet, but still very refreshing.

Grilled fish. Quite tasteless, but the sauce was superb! There was lime, chili, and slices of green mango in it.

Fresh spring rolls. Too much basil inside but still tasty otherwise.

Fried squid. Loved the sauce!

Fish Amok. Spicy but delicious. There were small pieces of fish and shrimp in the curry.

Address: #11 Street 57 (south of Sihanouk Boulevard)
The total meal for 3 of us including 3 coconuts, the dishes pictured above, and one serving of rice was US$23.10.
