A really nice place in Siem Reap. There is a great atmosphere there and the fries are amazing and the mayo dip is perhaps the best I tried.

A very nice place with great staff and a nice owner a little away from central Siem Reap. I recommend the shawarma which was really good.

Food and service was great and definitely recommend. It is slightly out of the main town but well worth the trip.

I come here every year and am always pleased with the schnitzel. Great Austrian food. This trip a friend had a Thai dish and it was excellent. No atmosphere but good food.

This restaurant is a bit out of the way but well worth it. The owner came out to meet us and ensure we were enjoying our lunch. We had Pad Thai, mango salad and the red curry. All were very good. My sister said she did not like Pad Thai but soon changed her mind after eating this one. We... More
