The food at ‘The Indian’ (above) was good. I may add that the ‘naan’ that I had there was perhaps the best that I have ever had.
This ‘thali’ at ‘Currywala was also good, though the ‘naan’ was very thin and the curd a bit sour.
I also had food at the ‘Taste of India’ where the ‘thali’ served was identical in menu and taste to the one that I had earlier had at the Currywala.

I saw the advertisement of another, rather unusual sounding Indian restaurant: Slumdog Curry: Ochheuteal Beach, Preah Sihanouk, Cambodia. But I did not have the heart to try out the ‘slumdog curries’!
And no town can have Indian restaurants and not have a ‘Taj Mahal Restaurant’. Pnom Penh has not one but two Shere Punjab restaurants - Shere Punjab-I and Shere Punjab-II! Oyay Balle…Balle.. ji!(I was a full paying customer at the three restaurants mentioned above) …
