We have just spent the evening here and oh my goodness it was fabulous. The food was to die for... We tried everything!! Just wish we had left some room for dessert. The owner is a true delight... So friendly and accommodating. Made helpful suggestions and gave us some delicious free tasters.
The restaurant has a really nice beachy feel to it and the music was great also although we couldn't be persuaded to dance ;)
Thank you. If I ever come back to siem reap I will return!! And I will spread the good word.

Thank Bexen

We went to Gigi Brasil after a few days of eating the local food. Getting here was a simple task, and eating here was a treat.

The hotel called ahead and I think we were the last accepted reservation. Also, come earlier in the evening if you would like to have the full compliment of meats and foods. Also, ask ahead about if they are doing the full bar b que.

We went for the full experience and did not leave hungry. Our server took such good care of us. I was overall happy with the food. The drinks were very tasty, and the atmosphere was great.

If you have the chance, GO HERE and EAT.

Very worth it.

Dear riyaliti
Thanks a lot for describe the things, food and service at Gigi Brasil. You are helping us to promote the restaurant, some people does not know how we work or what kind of food we serve, like the BBQ only weekends and it is home thing not a Churrascaria.
I am happy that you liked!
We hope that you come back soon and join us.
Best regards
Vanessa and all the staff Gigi Brasil

When we got to Siem Reap we heard from many different people that we had to try Gigi Brasil's food.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful as they spoke some Brazilian Portuguese to us. The manager was also very friendly and helpful and you can easily see she runs the place very well.

The place has a real Brazilian beach hut feel to it! It's awesome.

We ordered some 'coxinhas' and 'pão de queijo', which tasted great. The coconut shakes were amazing and the filé a parmigiana just like the ones in Brazil, really tasty!

I just came back from Gigi's and I have to say that this place is seriously amazing, 10 of 10, I had the steak and he just got it perfect, The tuna was delicious as well. Order the brazilian starters its unbelievable. I was travelling around brazil fro a while and I didnt try better starters then this ones.. I live in the mountains in Switzerland so we have very good meat and this was on the same level. Not too expensive in my opinion for how good it was not expensive enough.

on top of that you have the staff being incredible, friendly, funny, smiling... overall a 12 on a 10. Guys go there and don't trust the 4 fools that gave bad ratings they know nothing about food. I eat for pleasure and not because I'm hungry.

Ask the owner to dance samba for you, she is an astonishing beautiful real brazilian lady.

sorry for not posting fotos, I was too focused on my food.

thank you thank you thank you, you made my day.

Went to this restaurant based on TA reviews. It lived up to expectations. The staff are friendly and helpful. The owner is a bright and enthusiastic Brazilian. The menu was interesting.The food was well prepared and served. It was delicious. We had a mix of Brazilian and local food topped off wit a well priced Spanish red. A top night and I strongly recommend.
