We ordered some of the popular Cambodian dishes, mango shrimp salad and mee ka thung wide rice noodles. The portions were large and they both tasted great. I inquired if they were available to host our rehearsal dinner and offer the standard 8 course meal for us.
The owner was a bit hesitant because it was the same weekend as the popular Southeast Asian Water Festival and feared that it would be a busy night for him. He obliged anyway and quoted us about $600.00 (inclusive of tip and tax) for about 20 people. We were able to modify the menu for our non-Asian guests by adding in eggrolls, beef skewers, hot and sour soup,pad thai, etc so we got more than the standard 8 course fare.
The best part is that they didn't have a liquor license so we brought in our own booze. They iced our Remy 1738, beer and wine for us and provided glasses and cups. That saved a ton of money because almost everyone in our wedding party are lushes.
They prepared two of each dish on large platters for us to share. In addition to the traditional Cambodian starters, we had egg rolls and beef sticks.
