Why would you come to this restaurant when there is others just simply better..
Its just not worth it. The service was fine, food was below average.
I came here with a few friends and ordered:
the salmon salad which wasnt bad
the caesar salad which was bland and nothing special...just dont order this...
the duck tacos which came in a bad presentation and but wasnt bad taste wise. simple
scallop and prawn linguini... not worth not good
and some spinach mushroom dish from the main course list wish was even worse...
just.... not worth it ... at all...

I haven't been here for while, im not sure why, maybe its because i dont go to chinatown that often but i thought of Phnom Penh when i did past by chinatown this week. I came with 3 friends on a saturday and it was still pretty busy at 4:30pm but we didnt have to wait.
Im not too fond of the ambiance.
i've heard bad things about the service but i thought they were ok.
Food ~ ok so we ordered
#1(Phnom Penh Rice Noodle in Soup) - This was very bland and did not enjoy this at all. It was like noodles in water soup.
#6(Phnom Penh Two Kinds of Noodle nobroth) - This was not bad. It had pork, pork liver? shrimp in it and some others. This dish was ok.
Deep Fried Chicken Wings - I noticed almost 90% of the tables have 1 of this dish ordered and i also heard that these deep fried wings were amazing. But i thought it was only good but not amazing.
Butter Beef - This butter beef was so delicious. So good ! I rate it a 5 out of 5 ! I remember this dish to be alot cheaper back then which is the only thing on the downside.
I would give the food overall a 3.5 out of 5. But this doesnt allow me to do so. Rice noodle in soup was bad but the butter beef made up for it.

I came to Guu on a sunday. The place was pretty busy considering it was a sunday.
The service was ok ~
The food ~ we ordered the grilled saba. (Mackerel) I'd say it was ok. Nothing special. It wasnt tooo salty for me but others may disagree.
Ton-toro (porkbelly) I enjoyed this one.
Tako-yaki (fried octopus) this one was real good. There were 4or5 pieces and i liked this one alot.
Kimchi Udon. This is the only plate id say was a bit on the downside. Maybe because ive
had alot better elsewhere. But its still average.
Value - The portions are pretty small. But, i wouldnt complain too much about it.
Overall - Guu is not bad at all. Most of the food are good, i like the atmosphere, Would i be back? Sure ill be back
