Diamond Palace Hotel restaurant Jun 23, 2013
Since we arrived late afternoon in Phom Penh, and I was starving after a long journey by boat, mini van and a three wheeler, from Vietnam, so we decided to have lunch at the hotel restaurant instead of looking for other restaurant which we are not sure where to go to.

We have a looks at the menu from the room service in the room and the food and picture looks really good and the price is very reasonable. Also on the way up to the room, we have passed the restaurant and it looks very nice and inviting with the outdoor seating and soft music so we can do people watching. There is one or two televisions in the restaurant which you can watch as it is on when we were there, but mostly we do people watch.

After putting our luggage and refresh a bit, we walked downstairs to the lobby restaurant and order the food.

It seems the menu in the room service and the menu in the restaurant is slightly different and no picture in the restaurant, so it takes a bit of time for us to find out which food we want to order, luckily the price is similar and I do not think any different from the room service. After consulting with the writer and asked for Cambodian food, finally we settle with our order.

It takes sometimes for the food to arrive as they cook it fresh as per order, but it worth the waiting time as the food is really good and I like my pork red curry which serves hot on big bowl, very tasty, thick with curry sauce and plenty of meat and vegetables and it is not as spicy as other curry food I had eaten while in Sri Lanka.

I am very happy with my meals and the waitress is polite and full of smiles. Once we finished lunch, we ask if it is possible to put the bill together with the hotel charge, unfortunately we are not allow to put the bill under the hotel bill even though we tell them we do not have Cambodian money at the moment and we need to withdrawal or change money.

Nevertheless, the reception just told us to get some money from the ATM machine nearby or change money from them, so we go out to get some money to pay the bill. Unfortunately the ATM machine here only spiting usd and we were confused, why we could not get local currency and we tried several times, and after 3 different ATM, finally we give up and just change the usd to local currency at the hotel reception.

The location of this hotel restaurant is near National Museum of Phnom Penh, less than 5 minutes walk where there are so many shops, hotel, bar and restaurants next to each other.

The market is not far away, it is all within walking distance from this place and several people have lunch here which show good sign that the food is good.
