Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This spot is so cute, and the food and drinks are delicious! We had the veggie amok and red curry, which had a lot of flavor, as well as the mango salad and spring rolls. Everything is fresh and healthy, but filling! I also had...a honey lemongrass tea, which was very refreshing - perfect to beat the heat. The staff was also very kind and accomodating, and the owner even came out to chat and give us advice on the rest of our trip in Cambodia! Highly recommended if you're visiting Siem Reap.More

Ordered the fried veg (minus tomatoes) which comes with rice and homemade spicy potatoes. For drink I had the gin, lime, sprite and kaffir leaf cocktail. Friend ordered Amok, she said it was ok but has no comparison. It is the third time I’ve had...the veg dish in Cambodia and this was the worst. Zero flavour and very watery with a very small hint of soy. Rice just ok. Cocktail just ok, again, very watery and not due to ice. Potatoes were the best thing. I chose this place based on reviews and I’m surprised it was so bland. Nothing tasted of anything. I’m not sure if they are trying to appeal to the western palette. Staff were very nice hence the extra star. Restaurant atmosphere was nice. Food expensive for what it wasMore

Very popular spot near the night market. Good service and food, and very good prices. Stick to more local dishes like amok which are well executed and tasty. The chicken satay skewers on the other hand were not very tender and the peanut dip was...more like paste than sauce.More

Disappointed. Overrated and expensive, food lacked flavour and cold, small portions. Server very friendly though. Cocktails very weak, no flavour, expensive and warm - 2 ice cubes!! Avoid. It's just for tourists who want European dining experience. Around the corner, authentic great food by river...on old market (not tourist side). Super friendly and a quarter of the price!!More
