Description: Tonle Chaktomuk is the junction between the upper and lower Mekong, the Bassac and the Tonle Sap rivers. The Chaktomuk is therefore vital to the flow distribution between the four river branches. Development at Chaktomuk has the potential to impact on the entire lower Mekong River including the delta area in Vietnam and Cambodia’s Tonle Sap Great Lake.

“So many dishes”
Reviewed 17 February 2012

You pay a single entry fee and then you can eat all you want at this large buffet restaurant. There are so many different styles of Asian food on offer that it is impossible to try them all on one visit. I particularly enjoyed the chicken with peanut satay, prawn crackers and the sugar-cane juice. My Vietnamese colleagues tucked into the snails and the seafood. To be honest, I prefer more simple eateries but this place is a must-visit if you're in Siem Reap.

“Too many dishes to choose from”
Reviewed 11 December 2011

the food was good. there were so many dishes that we were not able to try all, i liked the amok fish- very different- very tasty. the shaved-ice with the beans and palm sugar was delightful, and not forget the durian ice cream

“Huge range and a bit overwhelming”
Reviewed 13 October 2011

Not the place for an intimate dinner. Thankfully, with 35 others in the group, intimacy wasn't what I was after. I'm not sure that what was on offer here was either though. They have a huge range of food types - an enormous buffet experience - but unless you're particularly adventurous, much of it will remain untried. What we did try was very nice though and the service was very good. We got to enjoy a shadow puppet show - traditional Khmer style - and it was very good and certainly added to the experience. Not sure I'd do it again though.
