Owner description: "Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives the Angkor dynasty in all aspects. It's the most worth view show in Cambodia. From foundation to prosperity, tale to folk customs, past to present, Smile of Angkor expresses the original culture with the highest technology It's a splendid performance directed by the experts of the Cambodia Culture and Fine Arts Ministry and the director team of the Closing Ceremony of 2008 Olympic Games. It's a legendary show that revives all the myths from the reliefs of Angkor Temples with our grand stage and the brightest stars. There is a buffet at the venue to allow you to dinner before the show. A small and cosy restaurant is dedicated to the individual visitors (non-group) but be aware that it s a huge buffet for Asian group so don't expect for food and Western standard level. But you will be able to see all the nationalities of Asia and to taste differents foods : Khmers, Vietnamese, Korean... Be aware that during the high season there should have so queue for the bbq which know a big success. During the show you can not take photos or videos. We wish to welcome you

The show is too expensive.Buffet dinner is bad and cheap.
I looking for Cambodia tranditional show, Smile of Angkor is my wrong decision.

Only one of this show I like is the Actor.

Dear Nattahod,
Thank you very much for taking the time to review our show.
Your input and feedback from all of our guests are vitally important for us as we want guest expectations to be fulfilled.
We are very sorry the buffet disappointed you and will do our best to improve it.
The show is a Grand Epic show featuring Cambodian dancers, mixing traditional cultural features and modern technical ressources. We will try to be more precise on our show description so there is no bad surprise in the future for any customer.
Best regards,

The team

The show was incredible and I have to say I don't really understand the bad reviews here. It was very well performed by local dancers. Of course don't expect a broadway show, this is an asian show. I definitely recommend the show, just check out their website before you make a decision to avoid disappointment.

After getting up at 4AM so as not to miss the dawn over Angkor and then walking through all the Temples all day, there could be no better way to end this day then with a show and buffet dinner and that is exactly what I did. Loved every minute of it and can not wait to return to Siem Reap.

The show is totally worth seeing! It is a beautiful fairy tale about the ancient history of Angkor Wat, and a perfect conclusion of the day spent in the temples. We were fascinated by the dancers, costumes, acrobatics, music, light and water! It should be mentioned though, that it is a truly Asian show, a reflection of an Asian mindset, and that makes it so special: it is in no way a product, adapted for the taste of quite predictable Western tourists, it is an authentic Cambodian folklore performance.
And you for sure should not miss it, if you come to Siem Reap with kids: my 4 years old son followed the action during the whole hour and really enjoyed it!
Few words about the buffet: there is only Asian food. So if you are used to sausages and sandwiches, it is not for you.
