Reviewed 18 May 2013

After traveling around nearly all of Asia, this place has to be one of my favorites! I may be kind of bias because I am Khmer but this place really brings out the cultural taste of my home country. I brought along my colleagues from Canada and they LOVED it!

-great service
-excellent staff
-awesome price
-beautiful decor

“Awesome Food”
Reviewed 15 May 2013

I've been struggling when eating to find that wow factor so far in my current SE Asia trip that I remember having oh so often when I first landed in Thailand over 10 years ago. I had a great Rendang in Sumatra recently and have been longing since for those fresh exotic flavours I associate with SE Asian cooking.

This place just hit the spot. The service is more customary to back home and unlike SE Asia, food comes in the right order and don’t take long to arrive. We missed happy hour but they gave us our cocktails for the same price any way which was nice. Could not fault the service at all, the restaurant was quiet so we had a real nice long chat with our waiter after our meal.

We had the fresh spring rolls; I believe these are more Vietnamese? Still they were excellent, for mains we had a Khmer Curry with coconut milk and a fish Amok. If you like it spicy they can give you more chilli.The flavours were superb. Chilli’s, lemongrass, lime leafs, coconut, basil...
The fish in the Amok was cooked perfectly.

The portions don’t look much but they are ample and we were sadly too full for desert!

Pricewise, it is perhaps a little more than the average place, but by a $1 or so really! $4-6 for mains. Cocktails $3 2for1 on happy hour. No nasty surprises added into the bill after either. We splurged and it only cost us $17. Well worth the treat

“Recommendation is a must”
Reviewed 6 May 2013

Spent some time in Siem Reap and tried to search out different experience there. Finally like Khmer Cuisine as they offered excellent service. I noted that staffs were always at your service and really want your dinner time happily. Nice decoration!

We did order local soup and rice as their recommendation and up with a local steak with green pepper and Cambodian desert.

Prices were not at risk, were very suitable. Definitely share to other
