Sopheara Cambodian Restaurant in Manukau serves the finest Cambodian cuisine. We can seat up to 50 people and be booked for private functions, birthdays, celebrations or even just a quiet dinner with friends and family.
Sopheara Restaurant offers an authentic Cambodian cuisine experience, serving delicately spiced food made from the best of NZ produce (and Kiwi-sized servings!). Easily matches some of the best we’ve tried in Cambodia. Highly recommended!
We have a place in Auckland but spend most of our time in Phnom Penh and usually eat Khmer (Cambodian) food at home. Wish there were more like this in NZ!
Always consistently good delicious generous helping of food at good prices with good service. Medium spicy is what it says! I like the decor and the family all helping to make this place one of the best kept secrets!
We enjoy the duck here and the fish fillets.
The food this time was as delicious as always!
This place is a hidden treasure which should be discovered by many others who enjoy fantastic tasting food at great prices along with wonderful service from the very hospitable hosts. We had the duck in hoisin last night, sensational! Along with the gourmet fried rice (Bay Char Basil), a yummy curry and the Rice Cakes with red curry. We finished the lot! Sadly for a Saturday night it was not busy and we hope this is just a blip because we would hate to loose this great restaurant. So, if you are looking for some great food at great prices then try Sopheara, you will not be disappointed.
I go once a month to Sopheara and enjoy the excellent food, friendly family service, welcoming smiles. Love the spicy cambodian curries and especially the seafood. The whole fish or mixed seafoods are very generous and great tasting. You will enjoy your visit!
The most delicous and flavoursome food I have enjoyed forever. Super authentic (Boyfriend is Cambodian and couldnt stop raving about the food), and well worth the money paid. Attentive and unintrusive staff. Cant wait to go back again! Would especially recommend the salmon curry, a-may-zing……
You cannot fault the service or the wonderful food in this lovely restaurant, perfection. We had a lovely birthday meal with the whole family. If there were two things that would make the experience of eating here more enjoyable it would be more heating in the dining room as everyone in our party had to keep their jackets on. Secondly the removal of the television on the buffet as it is rather overwhelming in such a small space. It is an intimate and nicely decorated restaurant and doesn’t need any extras, guests want to talk and not ogle the television.
Wouldnt know it was there unless someone else pointed it out.
Lovely meal there tonight with excellent attentive service.
We had a red chicken curry of some description which was awesome although i wish I’d gone for a different meat and a mixed platter of bbq meat with bbq pork and duck that made me wish I’d ordered separate plates of each.
I just looked Sopheara up from where I am living in Scotland because we miss the food and wonderful hospitality of Sophea and her wonderful cook husband Ra. It is good to see them getting the recognition they deserve. Wonderful, tasty, spicy, goodness with a smile!
Having reading the fantastic write up on this restaurant in the latest Metro, and seeing it on TV collecting the award for the best Indochinese Restaurant in Auckland – a group of 7 ventured there last night. Simply Sensational! A hidden treasure with friendly staff and an exquisite menu to suit every pallet. The Duck and Ginger – second to none. The squid – better than ever, and the signature Whisky flamed dishes are a must. We feasted on 7 mains, mixed entrees and a few drinks for under $30 per head. Highly recommended.
We think this is one of the best family-operated Asian restaurants around. The food is super tasty with great spicy flavours. We recommend mild to medium spicy, hot will blow you away! We probably go there more often than to any other local Asian restaurant. The owners provide friendly, efficient service.
