“Great value and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Went to this restaurant twice during our stay in Siem Reap. Excellent value at $6 for a 3-course meal. We had the spring rolls (both fresh and fried) and the fish amok (excellent) and the beef curry (nice blend of sweet and sour sauce). Braised banana dessert was also good. Service is great too. Would definitely recommend this place!

“A great little place in a quiet area serving wonderful food at very reasonable prices--do not miss this gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

This restaurant is a pure delight. Taavy is a charming young woman who has operated it for one year. The atmosphere, service and food are wonderful. Two of us each had the 3 course meal for $6 US--you get a number of choices for appetizer, entree and dessert. We had delicious banana bud salad with chicken and pomelo salad with grapefruit and fish. We both had very tasty pan fried fish with amok sauce and rice and for dessert braised bananas in coconut milk. This place is up the street from hectic Pub St. and is a very quiet place with an open front. It has to be one of the best dining places in the city--do not miss it.

“Perfect for me!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

This small, restaurant was such a lucky find in the bustling and over-busy Siem Reap. We ate there on two of our three evenings and I regret not making it three out of three. The atmosphere is lovely and peaceful unlike most of the eating places we saw in Siem Reap. (Maybe I'm feeling my age.) The food was very good and extremely cheap. (Starters @ $2.......Oh, yes, take US dollars with you.........every establishment takes them.) Staff were very friendly. I loved it!!!

“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

Thanks to TripAdvisor we found this great restaurant. Close to (less than 100 meters) but miles away from the madness of Pub Street (which does have its own charm). Quiet, very attentive service and great food at reasonable prices. Fairly extensive wine (for Siem Reap), cocktails and beer choices.
Good enough that we are considering something we rarely do--visit the same restaurant twice in a trip.

“Great food, great service, great value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

We ate here and paid $6 a head for a 3-course meal the food was really great. We also tried a cocktail at a quarter of the price we pay in our hotel. This restaurant is well worth trying - one of the best meals we had in Siem Reap. After that, enjoy a stroll through the night market - it is literally around the corner.
