The Restaurant

Although in the traveler’s imagination, fish amok has for years been seen as the emblematic dish of the country, Cambodia has many other colors, smells and flavors that the students of Sala Baï would love to introduce you to.

“Go to Sala Baï and you’ll meet young trainees, all smiles, happy to be here, to be learning a skill and launching themselves into the future” – Régis Marcon, Three-Star Chef, board member.

The Sala Baï training restaurant, together with the training Hotel and Beauty Salon, is an essential learning tool for the school. All meals are prepared and served by students. The fusion cuisine of Sala Baï prepares students for international standards of hospitality and offers a selection of varied dishes (international and Khmer) taking you on an unforgettable culinary journey.

The training restaurant is only open on weekdays for lunch services from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm on weekdays (from Monday to Friday). The restaurant is closed during eveningsweekends and public holidays.
