Yi Xian

Packed with the local Chinese community, this tiny restaurant serves large portions of Chinese food like small steamed buns. Don't forget to take the chance to try the dumplings and the sweet and sour chicken - they are impressively delicious.


Composed by a mix of Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, Cambodian cuisine is varied, simple and delicious. A diet is usually based on fish and soups while the local food offers healthy and abundant Asian surprises. Khmer highlights are fish amok (fish cooked in coconut) and barbecued beef, which can be found on most street corners in the early evening around the Central Market. As the city is made up of many communities including Vietnamese, Chinese and Expatriates, there is a variety of delicacies and restaurants catering to a large expatriate community.
