A Note From Our Chef Each morning I buy free range meats and freshly caught fish for my ever changing menu. I lead a kitchen whose talent is to take the best quality ingredients and tease out their fresh, vibrant flavours. One of my favourite parts of the week is visiting the morning markets where I pick up the season’s best fruit and veg: the first of the home grown produce, whether juicy limes or fresh mango, is on our tables the day after picking. Because the quality of the produce is so key to us, our kitchen uses only the best. For items we’re unable to source locally we have them imported... Feta cheese from Greece, olive oil from Italy and Grass-Fed Beef Steaks from Australia. Enjoy!

What are they talking about? Ever wondered what the locals are talking about? Probably the same as the rest of us… Where have you been? Have you eaten? How are you? Speaking a little Khmer can gain you a great amount of respect. Have a go… Unlike Neighbouring Laos and Thailand, Khmer is a non tonal language, however they do have 33 consonants and 26 vowels in the alphabet. "Ai" is pronounced as in Thai; "ay" as in pay; "dt" takes the t sound while "bp" takes the p sound. "Oo" is pronounced as in cook and "ao" as in Laos. English Excuse me Hello My name is… I would like… Water Beer Tea Thank you Yes (Male) Yes (Female) No Goodbye
