Title: Angkor Soul
Post by: Harry on December 10, 2015, 08:25:07 PM
I had lunch at Angkor Soul today. Its the new Cambodian restaurant near the Regent cinema.

Its a most welcome addition to the eating options in Marple. Excellent food at very reasonable prices. I can thoroughly recommend it.

See http://www.angkorsoul.uk (http://www.angkorsoul.uk) for details, opening times and menus.

Yes. Reasonably priced too.

Would agree with Harry, good addition to Marple. Does "conventional" coffee & cake as well for those who miss the previous establishments.

On the strength of these recommendations we tried Angkor Soul yesterday lunchtime. Enjoyed it very much, thank you!

After a second delightful lunchtime trip to Angkor Soul and talking to several other Friends of the Park volunteers who had enjoyed their own visits too, we decided to have a group meal there for our belated Christmas celebration. Twenty-one of us went on Tuesday night, when the restaurant is normally closed, and had the whole place to ourselves. It was the best social event that the group has had in more than 10 years, the food was unusual and delicious, the restaurant rearranged to suit our needs and the staff efficient and attentive. It was also extremely good value for such good quality food, working out at only £14.50 per head on average (for food only - we paid for drinks as we went).

The owner was very helpful with the organising of this, sending us menus to distribute so we could all choose in advance, opening on a night they are normally closed and rearranging the tables.

I'm sure that many of our volunteers will be returning in smaller numbers following this great night, we certainly will!

Would like to try it but I'm allergic to chili so can't cope with many Thai, etc., dishes. Is Cambodian food very "hot"?

That's all a bit relative, I have a friend who thinks a vindaloo isn't hot but I would say, by my own middle of the road standards, not "hot" just lovely and spicy.
My wife has a very low tolerance of "hot" food and she loved it.
It may be worth calling in and discussing your allergy. Maybe the owner can recommend some dishes without chilies.

Great review, good job we've booked in advance with friends for Saturday after next as it's going to get even harder to get in!

It is a shame we cant say the same - we went for my sons birthday- and we were served undercooked chicken and given a poor table, despite there being several empty ones.!! When we complained the owner wasn't at all interested, she seemed only to be interested in her regular customers!! It was only when we wrote an honest review on trip advisor that we got a response. >:(

Razzle, having under cooked chicken is not acceptable, you have written your comments on here , and declared you only got a proper response when writing an honest review on Trip advisor , maybe it would have been fair of you  to point out, that in their  reply to you ,  that you were offered a meal for four people on the house .

They can't be fairer than that, but you have clearly ommited that fact .

Pink Panther, I have not omitted anything. We had a horrible experience, and the owner was only interested when we wrote a poor review. They were not interested on the night!

We should not have been served undercooked food in the first place & if they had treated us better we would not have written the review.

We did not take up their offer of a free meal - as we did not want to go back.
