Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food and service at Sambo was amazing. The fish amok was delicious and my favourite meal of Cambodia. The staff were so kind and smiley. Would highly recommend paying a visit when in Siem reap.

We came here for lunch on our first day and were a little underwhelmed given the great reviews on Tripadvisor. I had the fish amok which was very salty and my husband had the fresh vegetable rolls which were not very tasty. The meal cost...us USD15 altogether with beers which isn’t a lot but you get much better quality food / value at Tevy’s.More

This was an incredible gem. Stopped in for lunch and tried the thom ka, the amok and the green mango salad. Everything was outstanding. The green mango salad was simply devine and just the right amount of spicy. I wish we had found this spot...sooner as we would have returned for dinner. Definitely worth a meal or two during your stay in Siem ReapMore

The most amazing traditional Khmer restaurant. The restaurant itself is beautiful and is within walking distance of Pub Street. The food was amazing, it was our first restaurant in Cambodia and we couldn’t have chosen a better one. Prices are affordable and the portions are...well sized. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone - we can’t wait to come back to Siem Reap just for this restaurant! Thanks to the amazing team for lovely service, we felt truely looked after whilst here!More

Great dinner at the place where we could enjoy genuine Thai cuisine that we had been somewhat missing after a few days in S.R. Don't hesitate to ask for the truly spicy cooking (if that's your stuff) and you'll get it the real "Thai way'....Food, place and staff - all was great. ThanksMore

Eating here for two dinners in a row may seem repetitive, but the menu list at Sambo Khmer & Thai Restaurant is extensive enough to warrant repeat visits. I had the Fish Amok and Morning Glory on my first, and Green Mango Salad and Stir...Fried Vegetables on my second. Both times, the food was excellent with just the added twist in flavour to make it a unique dining experience. Perhaps what sets this restaurant apart the most is the exceptional warmth that the servers give to their customers. As a solo traveller, I just wanted time alone with the food, but that also gave me an opportunity to witness the great efforts at conversation that the servers initiated with others. A truly genuine sense of welcome is present here, and makes this restaurant a must-visit if you are in Siem Reap. It gets a bit hard to find at night if you are travelling on foot, though, so make sure your location services are working.More
