You are paying for the show

If you're looking the whole experience "food and show"... this is the wrong place. The show with the Apsaras and other traditional dances is beautiful and worth to see, but the food is really bad. I was very disappointed because I really like Khmer food! I didn't like any of the food I ate in... read more

When we visited Siem Reap 2013, we missed the Apsara Dance(Cambodian Classical Dance). But this time we make a point to go and watch the Apsara Dance. Thanks to my Driver Mr.John who recommend us to go KOULEN 2 Restaurant. Entry per person is just $12. There, they serve buffet dinner and together with the classical dance, isn't that reasonable...

I like khmer foods. But some of them I disliked. there are many foods there so we can choose which one we like the most because we have choice.

Our Tuk Tuk driver took us here to book a table early. It seamed like a good idea at the time. When we got there at 7:00pm (when we were told to arrive), the place was packed with 1000 tourists (not an exageration...you are eating in a big tin roofed barn/shed). It was loud and hectic. All the dishes were... More

Nice buffet of asian foods with cultural performances. It was referred to us by our tuktuk driver and we paid like $15 each. Its a big resto but its hot inside. I think its the cultural show that makes the difference coz I'm from Manila and here we have the best buffet restaurants that cost's cheaper.

There was a wide range of food to choose from, but not much fresh fruits, they only had bananas and pineapple. There's entertainment while you dine, with the cultural dancers performing. Two thumbs up!

Food was okay, the dancing was fine (problem was our tour group had seen the same dances performed elsewhere a few days earlier), the venue was ridiculously hot with sticky vinyl seats, so many of us wanted to leave before the conclusion of the show. I needed to get into the cool as I was feeling very unwell after a... More

This was a smorgasbord dining experience, the food was luke warm and not much of it... get there at 8pm and you will miss out, for example the chicken stir fry had no chicken left, empty tureens where not replaced and the meat from the sweat and sour pork contained a cm femur bone.... awful avoid at all costs
