For $12US each it's ok value given the show was ok, however the food was not very good. Most of the buffet food was below average, the only exception were the fresh chef cooked noodles. Drinks overpriced. Plenty of better places for dinner

My husband and I thought we had better see a cultural show while in Siem Reap. We stumbled upon this venue on a walk around town and made a booking for that evening. We were shown where our table was. When we arrived someone else was at our table and the next 2 tables which put us near the back... More

I am not a picky eater at all. I enjoy eating but this place was by far the worst place to eat in Siem Reap. The chicken dishes consisted of scarce chunks of meat with bones if you are lucky, or chicken skin. Every dish was like this and I tried a little of everything. I tried to find something... More

Apsara dance show that came with a buffet. Worth it for the price. Show was very entertaining, but the food was just ok. Nothing too special about it. Place was packed, and had to queue for food. Drink was fairly priced, maybe a little bit on the expensive side in Cambodia. Should go for the show, very cultural.

The end of our day long tour of Angkor Wat and the temples was the height of our trip. Food and Feast with a cultural show of the Khmer people. The dinner buffet was quite a gastronomical feast in itself, a combination of dishes from European, Continental, Cambodian cuisine, Thai and even Chinese with dimsum and noodles. The dessert choices... More

I met one of tuk tuk driver in Siem Reap. He recommended me to Apsara Show at Kulen 2 restaurant. The show was great but you had to queue to get food because about 4 hundred tourists when I was there. The food is also good.

The food was standard buffet - nothing wrong with any of it but not outstanding either. my family (including 2 fussy kids, one with dietary restrictions) all found plenty to eat. The show was entertaining and it was great for the kids to have their photos taken at the end with the performers.

My hotel had arranged this show for me. The show is for about 90 minutes with buffet dinner. The food was good with a wide range of options. Unlike what I read in previous reviews, the food was not cold or bad. There were about 90-100 people for the show. make sure you reach in advance to finish your main... More

Koulen was all-together un-impressive. The buffet was mediocre. An interesting array of food, but nothing to write home about. The dance was fun to see and the costumes were great. However, It is not air conditioned so it is HOT!

I enjoyed my evening at the Koulen Restaurant. I didn't actually know much about it until I attended as it was recommended to me by my hotel. The food was lovely and the show was quite entertaining. Definitely, $12 well spent!
