Good restaurant, but beware of rude customers!

Good performances and good food with good beers. However, some of the crowds were rude and obnoxious, like I was sitting at my table and some drunks were complaining that we were blocking their view. I ignored at first, but later when they kept complaining, I told them to shut up and move their... read more

We were booked by the hotel for the cultural show and buffet dinner, which was part of the tour package. I wanted to experience Cambodian fare, but the restaurant did not feature much of it. Almost all the food served was mediocre Western-style food, and more mediocre Asian food. The lighting was dim (because of the show) and the dining... More

Range of food available but overall very disappointing. Very much set up for tourists. Buffet set-up, bit of a scramble. Very hot. Very long wait for freshly cooked food.

A huge, busy, noisy restaurant filled with uploads of tourists (mostly Asian when we were there because it was Chinese New Year). Food was probably the worst we had in Siem Reap. Boring, mass-produced and catering very much to the Chinese people. One dish was "fried instant noodles". Also the most expensive meal of the whole week in Cambodia. Apsara... More

I wish I had been able to see the show somewhere else. It wasn't great, but I think it would have been decent. I got stuck way in the back -- initially behind a pole. I had to start to make a scene to get moved from behind the pole. I really hate to have to do that, but I... More

I was told by my guide about how good this place was. The food was a total let down. They had so many items on the buffet counter but there was no finesse to any of the dishes. Most of the dishes ran out and the replenishment was very slow. The dessert counter was awful. The dance show there was... More

Situated on Sivatha Road, Siem Reap, Koulen II restaurant, which conducts Cambodia's traditional dance performances, clubbed with dinner buffet, is a big attraction for the tourists. I had an opportunity to witness the Apsara Show, where the dancers were so graceful, with gentle hand and feet movements. There was melodious , soft music played, live, and these are the traditional... More

We were recommended this restaurant by the staff at our hotel because we wanted to see an Apsara dance. The dancers were excellent and the food was very good. It's a buffet and there is a great variety. I'd highly recommend this restaurant and show.

It cost USD 12 per person. We stop by in the afternoon to make a reservation. An early reservation is a must, due to you get to choose your preferred table. A lot of the table was already booked when were there, but we still manage to get a good seat. We arrive at 6.30pm for the dinner. There are... More

The Apsara dances and shows was great and it was entertaining but the whole place was not conducive, If you plan to come here, do early reservations probably one or two days ahead. Come early for their buffet lunch ($12) as the shows starts around 7.30pm. By that time there will be a long line of people at the buffet... More
