As for the hotel and restaurant reviews, I noticed some changes, for instance in Phnom Penh the Paragon is no longer a top pick but I stay there regularly and enjoy it very much. The owner purchased a hotel around the corner and it has been totally renovated, I think it is the Amari, I visited it and it looks very similar, but all newly renovated.
Restaurants: I see the addition of Green Pepper in Phnom Penh. I think the review is favourable but not sure I like the description "hole-in-the-wall", it's not more or less that than any other family run restaurant in Phnom Penh. It is clean and friendly and much quieter than some of the eateries on the riverside main street along the water. I have eaten there more than 20 times over several trips and it changed hands 3 times alone in 2009/2010 but fortunately the cook has remained the same. I find the food fabulous but I have always stuck to the myriad of Khmer dishes and not the Chinese or Thai. The fish amok, shrimp cakes, fried fish with spicy mango salad, spicy chicken with vegetables, spicy beef soup, fish soup with tomato/pineapple, meat stuffed tomatoes and omelette with fermented fish are all my favourites. It's my favourite restaurant in the river front area in the price range $2.50-4.00 per dish. Soriya Shopping Center, 4th floor food court is even cheaper and excellent, but it's nice to sit and chat and be served in a restaurant. If you want to splurge, the dinner buffet at the Sokha Club Hotel is very nice, USD$12 when I was last there, but I personally prefer zipping in to a small family run place. Oh I have to mention that Lonely Planet is right on with its recommendation for Romdeng restaurant, it is absolutely fabulous both for food and ambiance. The outdoor eating is in a lush well kept courtyard, it's stunning. The prices are a bit higher, up to $7 per dish when I was last there, but it is very enjoyable and the ice-cold fruit "smoothies" (advertised made with clean safe ice, I never had a problem) are a super treat in March/April when it is often 40c+.
