This busy eatery is right in the heart of the market area and Pub street. The food is all on display and is cooked to order. We were seduced by the 25cent draft beer before 8pm and what a good thing that was. Our BBQ ribs and fried rice were delicious and the beer excellent (and really cold). One night... More

Great fun BBQ ing your own food. A bit like fondue parties in the 70s. A variety of meats were presented and instruction given as to how to use the hot coals. Defiantly no health and safety rules here but great fun

It took awhile for the food to get out. The red snapper was good, everything else that came with it was ok, nothing to special about the BBQ place.

Al fresco dining, we went for a meat BBQ option. Service was appalling and I was about to leave when suddenly everything started to happen. You get a gas cooker with a sort of aluminium hub cap dish with vents in it. A kettle full of liquid, which turns out to be stock, and a 6 tier plate rack with... More

Tried many restaurants during a week stay in Siem Reap. The whole area in pub street is pretty mainstream but the whole town is a touristic complex established to serve angkor wat area. This restaurant has been a really bad experience. Khmer food was below the average standards, staff service really little careful and professional. We also asked for a... More

This looked like a street food joint, but in reality just served extremely disgusting and low quality BBQ for WAY more than it ought to have cost. Only upside was a pretty good a cheap mojito. Definitely one to avoid, so many better options in the same area for a lot less.

We've been there twice, took bbq fish, noodles, stir fried eel and rice. Everything was delicious. Portions were good as well as prices. Waiters are friendly.

Really good ribs and great price! Nice servers.... even if they seem to make a habit of screwing up the change in their favor.
