Harden's says

One of a tiny number of Cambodian restaurants in the UK, Angkor Soul also serves other Asian fare - and sells records in the basement.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“All the Cambodian food is tasty and authentic”, and for lunch they serve “flavoursome” soups, filled baguettes and noodle dishes at this “small and cramped” operation – which (with its spin-offs) is quite possibly the only restaurant of its type in northern England. In the basement they buy and sell second-hand vinyl – hence the name. Branches have now opened in Altrincham and, most recently, Stockport market.

“Amazing Cambodian food”, “delicately flavoured in generous portions” means that “booking is essential, even at lunchtime” at this “small cafe-style room next to an independent cinema”, in a leafy, small town outside Manchester (named for the stack of vinyl in the basement, which you can peruse if you’re a fan). “Traditional lunchtime pub grub of soup and a sandwich is transformed by Cambodian flavours into spicy soup and well-filled baguettes (with coconut reigning supreme)”. The evening menu is a little longer. If you’re over Altrincham way they opened a new branch there in late summer 2018. Top Menu Tip: “try the amazing black rice pudding”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
