What we say: 4 stars

The Old House is a classy Khmer restaurant that serves quality food in a package highly accessible and comfy package.

With polished wood floors, soft lighting, plenty of space and a relaxed but professional staff, the atmosphere has a soothing, almost Zen-esque edge. From a $1.75 plate of fried rice up to a $14.75 roasted imported rack of lamb, a range of tasty Khmer dishes are available a la carte, but most come for the $6 set menu.

Start with fresh spring rolls or lotus root salad, move on to a solid version of amok, stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts or grilled seafood with Kampot pepper, and finish up with fresh fruit salad or bananas in warm coconut milk. A small but quality wine list is also available along with beer.

Especially if you enjoy meat and seafood, The Old House is suitable for a cheap lunch, an indulgent dinner or anything in between. As there aren't many meatless options, however, vegetarians should probably look elsewhere.

You'll find the Old House tucked into a nondescript shop terrace 100 metres from the northern end of Pub Street.
