Based on word-of-mouth, booked a table a while back and finally made it here. We tried to order the whole menu. But failed.

Dishes we would definitely order again:

Grilled chicken leg

Whole sea bass (every single time)

3. Ask a waiter what you should...more

Swayed by an effusive review from Grace Dent as well as a colleague's raptures, I'd set Som Saa firmly in my culinary sights.

There was a 45-minute wait on a Tuesday evening, so clearly many others had heard the hype. My companion and I had beers while we waited and the time passed quickly.
