I went with a friend for lunch today. We had the "Phnom Penh noodle soup" and a deep-fried tilapia "special" (handwritten on the menus). The soup was fine; if it had been billed as pho at a Vietnamese place, I might not have known the difference (which may be a statement about my lack of discernment. It was maybe a little more sour, and had more in the way of kidneys, fish balls and other spherical spongy meaty substances than slices of meat). The tilapia was quite good, and cooked in vinegar (but not too strong a vinegar flavor). Most entrees on the smallish menu, including these two, were $7 or $8.
It's a decent place, and I had a much better impression than the commenters above seem to have had. But not extraordinary; I'd go back to Black and Silver next time I'm in that hood.
The hours are 11 until 8 or 9 (I forget) everyday.
No, I noticed it recently, but it was around 4 pm on a Sunday and it wasn't open. I didn't see any signs regarding hours.
On a completely different note, I had a great experience at the International Lao Market nearby, which is quite unassuming given its grandiose name.

food is cheap and there's a reason for it.
just 29 items on the menu. most people ordered noodles. one older couple left it half eaten.
would not recommend.
