This is a relatively new restaurant on International Boulevard, attached to a Thai video store. The menu is very limited, which I think may be an advantage - one of the problems with Champa Garden is its massive menu - too easy to order something mediocre, and even the good dishes aren't consistently good.
I went for lunch, and only tried two dishes, but both were very, very good - a Lao-style papaya salad (it can be ordered either Thai or Lao style), and a beef larb. Both were well-balanced, although the larb was a little more intense (balanced, but intensely salty, sour, and spicy) than I normally like - I had to eat a lot of rice to clear my palate between bites. The papaya salad was just delicious - I love the flavor of fermented crab paste, though, so people who aren't into that should order the Thai-style, which is sweeter, and sans fermented crab.
When you order, they'll ask "how many peppers?" - I found five to be plenty for me (I'm a wimp) - I think it registered between a 2 and a 3 on Champa Garden's 5 point scale. My friends, who routinely eat spicy food, said they usually order 15, but have seen people go as high as 40.
Two dishes, plus 3 orders of sticky rice, were plenty for 3 people, and came out to about $5/pp.
The entire menu (we asked the owners to describe some of the dishes that didn't have English translations, but weren't able to get descriptions of everything - since the General Chowhounding Topics board came through for me with the Mongolian menu, I'll post the untranslated menu items there, too):
String bean salad
Soup (tome keurng nai)
Kao poont (noodle soup)
Sai Oaw (sausage)
Duck (pate tah bee)
Moke pa (best I can tell, sounds similar to Cambodian amok)
Som pug kaad
Soup nor mike (bamboo soup)
Green Papaya Deli
