Is Battambang (in Chinatown) closed?

I've been by there twice around dinnertime, and both times the security gate has been down over the front of the building. Are they out of business? Are they only open from 2-4am on alternate Mondays? Are they actually open, with a super-secret entrance in the rear? What's the password?

Where's the nearest Cambodian alternative?

    I stopped by for lunch today. The lady working there recommended either a soup, or grilled meat over rice. Being dehydrated, I chose the soup, which turned out to be sort of mediocre version of pho. I'm looking forward to trying their grilled meat over rice offering, though.

      Thanks to you both. I'll try not to expect too much from the food. And I'll go for lunch sometime.

        They are open at this very moment. Note that because they open up at 6:30 am, they're closed by 6 pm.

          There's Battambang on San Gabriel Blvd. south of Valley in San Gabriel, although I've never been to it so I can't comment on its quality. When I want Cambodian I go down to Anaheim St. in Long Beach where there is a concentration of them. I've liked Hak Heang in the past. I've heard good things about Sophy's (which I think is on PCH rather than Anaheim), I like Grand Paradise pretty well. I've spent a lot of time in Cambodia and love the country, but I've never thought its food was among the highlights of Southeast Asia, still, there's some pretty good stuff to be had.
