Lunch at the Temples

Hi:

My wife and I are visiting Siem Reap in 2 weeks and were wondering what the lunch options are around the Angkor Wat area? Can anyone recommend a lunch stop?

Thanks!

You have many options for eating lunch or other meals in the vicinity of the temples.

Not unexpectedly, the larger and better cluster of eating places are to be found opposite the causeway entry to Angkor Wat. The places here range from the excellent virtually fine dining run by Artisans d' Angkor to the larger local restaurants to the typical food stall. Many tuk-tuk/motodop drivers like to take their clients to the more local places as they get a commission in the form of either a free meal for themselves or a bottle of fuel for their vehicle.

Very many travellers, myself included, like to take our driver to lunch with us so that we can keep up to date on local gossip etc.

Best regards. Ian

In the more outlying temple areas are small food stalls and with often surprisingly good fresh cooked food available. Even further out at Bantey Srey are numerous food outlets near the car parking area.

Potable bottled water is for sale at virtually every temple site.

Best regards. Ian

+1 for checking out the little local places - and +1 for taking your driver to lunch - it's a great way to chat informally & get to know them.

Our driver and guide also took us to a little restaurant where we all had lunch together, just go with your drivers recommendation, that's the best thing to do.
