This place is awesome!!!!!!
My sister and I were looking for some Asian Restuarant around the area cuz it's close to our hotel. We got here around 9:30pm on Thursday night and it's so packed, only 4 seats left. The server was super nice and he speaks good English (thanks god cuz they don't have menu in English) he explained everything for us even he was super busy. The foods came out pretty fast and so good. If u never have Cambodia food before, to be award that the noodles soup is kinda sweet and everything else is perfect ;)
We will def come back when we visit Paris again.
It was a perfect evening in June, and we sat on the (surprisingly smoke-free patio) with my buddy, Robert .
We started with a nice carafe of rose, and they even brought a little ice. We sipped while we perused the menu.
We had no idea what Cambodian food was, exactly. The waiter was incredibly helpful, and we asked for a recommendation for entree and he said the nems- so we ordered the nems.
Nems, apparently, are little fried cousins of eggrolls from what I can tell. We wrapped them in lettuce, sprinkled them with mint and bamboo sprouts, and doused with the sauce et voila! A delicious little lettuce wrap.
My buddy ordered the boef au citron and ate every morsel. I had the bobun special with crevettes (shrimp) - basically a giant noodle bowl, and DEVOURED IT!
It was amazing! I will have cravings for this dish and expect I will have to return often!!!
It was rather inexpensive too! 49 euros for two with wine, a starter, and two entrees.
I stumbled upon this place accidentally when the place I was looking for was closed for holiday. I was with my 2 year old son and not being sure exactly what Cambodian food was, took a gamble that it would be a good place for us to eat lunch. We arrived early so was able to get a seat right away. The waiter recommended a dish for me (Bobun mixte) and one for my son. Both were fresh, delicious and seasoned very well. My son ate his without any problem (which is an added bonus because it had lots of vegetables). It was reasonably priced, extremely helpful waitstaff. A cool vibe and definitely a go to place for this mommy -I only wish I had found it earlier in our travels.
Tasty, fresh, cheap and friendly. J'aime ca! I came here on a Friday night after being (rudely) turned away at nearby vegetarian joint, Soya. I had been traveling for 2 weeks in France and was in dire need of something light and healthy after eating way too much heavy French food! Le Cambodge did the trick with the vegetarian bobun. Lots of veggies and the vermecelli noodles were great! The sauce could have been spicier but all in all, a solid meal. The service was kind to a non-native French speaker and although there was a line, I never felt rushed and they didn't give me sass for dining alone at a table for 2. A good option in the Canal St. Martin 'hood.
The Cambodian proprietress, Indian chef, friendly service and an adoring local crowd made for a fantastic first meal in Paris.
I can recommend their authentic food without reservations but if you have more than 4 people in your party, I suggest making one as it's a small place. I don't think they take reservations over the phone but we were able to get a table for 8 after putting in our name at the host stand. The host asked us to wait 45 minutes, which was the perfect amount of time to pop a bottle of wine at a nearby cellar.
We came back hungry and ordered enough plates to pass around the table. The intricately seasoned Lok Lak is the best I've had outside of Cambodia and I couldn't get enough of the Ban Hoy my dad ordered. The crisp lettuce wrapped around fresh bean sprouts and delicately spiced pork is simple and stunning - a truly beautiful dish.
One detail that Le Cambodge offered but many restaurants overlook is the sauces you see on tables everywhere in Southeast Asia: little pots of rice vinegar with crushed peanuts floating on the surface, fish sauce flecked with fresh red chilies and toxic-orange chili paste so spicy that it brings beads of sweat to your under-eyes. A lovely touch!
We've only got a few days in Paris but I'm trying to get back to Le Cambodge for another Ban Hoy before we leave. I hope you get a chance to try it, we were happy we did.
never had cambodian food before, got the pork bobuns with the spring rolls for an appetizer. delicious! great food for a great price
If your looking for a spicy and good meal, you will find both at Le Cambodge!
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Paris. I go here at lease once a week.
What I typically get here:
-start with the 6 pork and veggie nems that comes with lettuce, mint, white sprouts, and a peanut sauce
-main plate I get the beouf a la citronelle (this is delicious!! I always ask for some spicy hot sauce on the side which is really good and adds even more flavor)
-my friend always gets the Bobon special mixte which is more like a soup with noodles and it looks mouthwatering each time. I will for sure try it next time
The price of food is good and the service is fantastic. I have never had one bad experience here. Close to the canal and a great place to go during the summer to sit outside.
2 locations just down the road from each other. This is a must place to eat if you are in the 11eme or if your looking for exotic flavors and curries. Gets really full on the weekends (they don't take reservations so get there early at 8 if you want dinner - this is only for the location next to canal st martin) the other location down the street is open all day and week.
Really good Cambodian/Asian Fusion food. The place was small, but the food tasted big. I was surprised at how good it was. I had the Bobun with shrimp and spring roll. It was freakin delicious. I would definitely go back and try everything on the menu.
Love this place for a casual meal near Canal St Martin. Get there early as the wait can be long. You can put your name down with your cell and they'll call you when your table is ready. Take a stroll on the canal or have a drink at Chez Prune while you wait.
we were staying nearby and our friend recommended this place. we were warned that there would be a long wait but the staff would be nice. we came and we had to wait, so we left our phone number and waited at a bar nearby.
about 45 mins later, we had a table. we had the bobuns - vegetarian and meat special. we enjoyed the fresh taste and flavors.
the service was good. the interior is modern and clean. i would definitely come back here.
Worth waiting in line like good communists.
delicious meals and nice athmosphere only a few meters from the canal st martin
