Connoisseurs of Southeast Asian cuisine, take note: in a city that prides itself on ethnic eats, this fresh bistro offers one of the few true places for Cambodian food in Manhattan. Inside, the stone-accented Angkor is lined in richly stained wood and filled with woven rattan furnishings and Buddha figurines. Owned by Minh and Mandy Truong, the husband-wife team who ran Chelsea's Royal Siam for 20 years, this menu certainly shares DNA with other Southeast Asian restaurants, offering classic items like grilled, marinated meat skewers, sour soups, spicy salads and curries. But there are also more unique items to be explored, like delicious stir-fried specialties from Siem Reap; or nyoam, a traditional Khmer noodle dish sauced with thick red fish curry.
