We were hungry, yes, and the food settled our stomach, but we would not go there on our own accord. This is a tourist trap that the tour guides get kickbacks. I recommend not going if you can avoid it. With that being said, if you like this type of place then you can find many of the local favorites... More

After visiting Temple, we had our late breakfast here bcs our hotel forgot to prepare breakfast box for us for early sunrise at Angkor Wat. So our tuk tuk driver brought us to have quick breakfast here before proceed to next temple. Food over here is very pricy so don't come. One plate of fried rice costs $7! Omg

We did the small "Flight of the Gibbon" tour and lunch here was included. It is located right across the street from the lake in a long line of other restaurants and market stalls. We were provided with a set lunch and had to pay only for drinks. We were impressed with the food. We had 4 dishes including fried... More

We ate lunch here twice during our visit to Siem Reap. Our guide took us here, no doubt because they get a free lunch however that aside, we found the food fabulous. The green curry was simply one of the best I have had with a perfect balance of flavours. On the second visit they recognize us and gave us... More

We were "recommended" this restaurant despite saying we prefer to eat in Siem Reap after the temple tour. The cheeky guide told us he was very hungry because he did not eat breakfast. So, we accommodated him, and told him we would have a bit of snacks wherever he normally eat. I saw the menu was expensive but expected that... More

Was taken here for lunch here after touring Angkor Wat. The food was very average and expensive for what you get. We had 2 rice dishes and 2 cold drinks for USD19 which is far more expensive than Pub Street, the tourist area. Don't bother!

only came here coz the tour guide brought us, food was ok here, the wifi is almost impossible to log on to - they will tell you the password is wrong, but in fact you need to keep trying and trying!
