Do you like Teppaniyaki, Japanese or Cambodian food? Do you like steaks, rib eyes or crocodile fillets? If you answer ‘yes’ to either of the above questions, then you need to eat at the Happa Restaurant. I liked their food so much that I ate all my four dinners at that restaurant. Unfortunately for me, they open up only at 5 pm else I would have had all my meals there. The Happa restaurant is situated on the road leading to the Serendipity beach in Sihanoukville. The restaurant opens at 5 pm every evening and takes the last order at 10 pm. In between, they are a maze of hectic business and good food. Like most of Cambodia, you will have to wait for your order. But, the wait is not that bad as you can see the open kitchen and smell the various dishes that are being prepared on the Teppaniyaki grill.
The best vegetarian items on their menu are the Cambodian dishes of Amok, Cha Kroueng and Cambodian curry. Apart from these, the Yakisoba, Tofu steak and grilled eggplant with grated coconut are also fabulous. For meat lovers, they have yakisoba with seafood, rib eye steaks, crocodile fillet, mixed platter, lamb skewers, seafood platter in butter and soya sauce, the cambodian dishes with fish and chicken, beef lok lok and more.
They also serve alcoholic beverages, wine and non-alcoholic beverages. They have a small collection of desserts too though I have not tasted them. In terms of price, they are much more expensive than the rest of Cambodia. Prices start at $3.75 and goes up to $12.25 for a dish. The helpings are of good size and the best thing is that all the items on their menu taste yumm. I can vouch for the vegetarian options and my friend can do the same for the non-vegetarian fare. The only problem here is the wait time, which can be agonizing sometimes. But, if you can wait, their food will ensure that you wait is really SWEET. I would give this restaurant 5 Stars out of 5, in spite of their slow service as their food is the best you can eat in Sihanoukville or may be even Cambodia.
