Cambodian Restaurant 3rd Ave Bet 93 and 94st

My wife and I just came back from eating at the new Cambodian restaurant on 3rd Ave.
Here's a little report. The A/C was working nicely. There's lots of room between tables (I hate being cramped so that you can't even move), and it's nicely decorated. While our waitress seemed a little inexperienced, she was sincere, courteous and polite. Otherwise the service was excellent (water glasses filled regularly, not a long wait for the food etc.). The food was excellently prepared. We like spicy and spicy it was(our entrees that is), without flames shooting out of our orifices. One negative was the timing. We ordered an appetizer to share and we each had soup. The appetizer and soup came at the same time. We chalk that up to the fact that all restaurants have bugs to iron out when they first open up. Another possible negative was that there are no soft surfaces so if it's packed (it was about 2/3 filled or so) it might be noisy. All in all we had a nice, pleasant meal and we will definitely go back. BTW, it's bigger than it looks from the outside. They have an upstairs as well as a back room.

      I knew someone was going to ask that lol.
      I really don't remember. The meals were listed in Cambodian. The appetizer was chicken on 2 skewers, one soup had pineapple in it and was sweet and sour, I forget what soup my wife had but it had sea food in it. Just about all the entrees had a choice of bean curd, or chicken or sea food or shrimp or beef to be added. One of our entrees had sea food (and lots of it) and the other one had chicken. I'm sorry I couldn't be more of a help. If you go there, you will understand why I can't be more specific. The bill for the appetizer, 2 soups, and 2 entrees with tax, but not the tip was $49.58.
