04 October, 2012We have been there a number of times when we want the good Chinese food on lazy weekends (you pay more but there's more ambience and better service there). Some new red partitions had been hung up gives each table a little more privacy.

This time we ordered :
- fried prawns with salted eggs : highly recommended. fresh succulent prawns, crispy and flavourful cover.
- seabass congee : delicate and really fresh fish was used.
- fried radish cakes : tasty, sweet definitely the best radish cake in town in my opinion.
- seafood dim sums : we ordered 3 dim sums to share. all was very good.
Staff was very friendly and accommodative. There was somehow a problem with our card at Fu Lu Zu. She went to the different restaurant in Sofitel to try the different machine and get the payment sorted for us. Definitely recommended if you are looking for fine Chinese dining with ambience and pleasant service.

Went for dinner on a Saturday night and it was pretty quiet at around 8pm. The ambience was lovely and authentic. For that moment, I felt that I am back to one of those posh chinese restaurants back in my home country. There were 6 of us and we were brought to one of their private rooms. I thought the room was a little small and cluster but my friends were fine with it.
To the food. We ordered about 8 dishes and the best would be the Sweet & Sour Pork. It is easily the best in PP and even perhaps in my home country too! The pork is crispy on the outside and very tender and juicy inside despite the chunkiness. The meat is well marinated so it can taste still delicious without the sauce. The sweet and sour sauce is also done very well. The sweetness and sourness are balanced and has a good consistency which can coat the meat well without ruining the cripsness of it. Along with the well marinaded meat, the combination was explosive and I can't resist to have more.
Usually we are being served with lemon chicken and but the prawn version is pretty good too! The prawns are very fresh, big and succulent. The sauce again in a winner.
Overall, it was a good experience. Price of good is reasonable but the ice tea cost US$3.50 which was ridiculously expensive. Can't wait to go back for more of the food and also to try the dim sum which has a good selection of items!

26 June, 2012They do dim sum breakfast brunch during the weekends. Dim sum menu is extensive. Slightly more expensive but suppose you get ambience and good service with it. Definitely recommend it for something different on weekend brunch.
16 November, 2011Dim Sum, noodles and roasted meats there are as good as Yi Sang and Emperors of China in my opinion. The price is however $1-2 more expensive per dish so total bill can be rather significantly different.

One thing to be said which is better than other 2 restaurants mentioned was of course the excellent service, the kind you expect from high end hotel restaurants i suppose. We got almost undivided attention without feeling overwhelmed by it. They know what to do without you having to ask - preparing the kid's dining/cutlery set the moment they saw us walk in with our son, asking what food/drink we want to order for him first, changing the plate, plating the food in the individual dishes.
So depend what you are looking for - something good quality but cheaper price with relatively alright service, Yi Sang and Emperors of China could be your choice. For ones with young kids, like us, surprising this elegant Chinese restaurant is very family friendly.
14 September, 2011Fu Lu Zu is the upmarket Chinese restaurant in the Sofitel Phnom Penh. The menu is extensive with classic Cantonese dishes from dim sum to sharks fin and beyond.

The atmosphere is plush, but quite minimalist. There was a strong smell of lemongrass in the restaurant when we went, which may be coming from the next door spa. The restaurant was extremely quiet, with only 3 tables.
The food was good. We ordered several dim sum dishes (pork and shrimp dumplings, carrot cake, deep fried prawns and chicken and bbq pork pastry). All were good and were quickly served after ordering. In addition, we got bbq pork, crispy pork, fried rice and stir fried morning glory. All were also good, with the crispy pork being the best of the main dishes.
Price wise - it worked out about $20 per head including drinks. Not cheap, but this is the Sofitel. Service was fine.
Overall, it is a good place for business dining. I would say that this is close to the standards set by Emperor's of China for dim sum.
