There are small soup and rice shops all along the main drag and next to the market. They offer decent, cheap food.
As the sign implies, this is a friendly place with an English menu and good food. They even have a Tiger Beer girl who is quick on the draw for those thirsty travellers.
Phkay Proek Restaurant:
The restaurant is located almost on the end of the ridge street. The local Khmer and Thai food served here is reliably good. This restaurant is part of an extended family of restaurants that have taken the west by storm, with branches in Battambang, Sisophon and Poipet.
Hang Meas Hotel & Restaurant:
Located just some steps upward the hill. Chinese, Thai, Khmer and a bit of Western food are served in this top spot of Pailin (English menu). The beer girls do double duty between the restaurant and nightclub.
Green Dragon Restaurant:
Thatched roof eating areas are next to the dusty parking area-it's best to eat inside if you are going here.
Kim Young Guesthouse:
Also located just some steps from the market uphill. Delicious Khmer food and English menu are available.
