I was a bit let down when we tried this place since it had such good reviews. Their Mexican dishes were very average. We ordered fish tacos, enchiladas and nachos. There was hardly any kick at all to the dishes, so we needed to ask for hot sauce (they only have tabasco). Furthermore most of the sauces were pretty bland,... More

Ate here a few times but also came back for the good expresso coffee. Food we had was Mexican and as good as I have had in USA so they can cook it right and price it even better.

We have lived in SE Asia for several months and I do get the hankering for Mexican food. I was advised to give Viva a try and although not quite Mexico (more Tex Mex), it was pretty darn tasty! The margaritas as yummy and really reasonable. We both had the mango margarita, which had a good kick and was not... More

We currently live in Europe so when we saw the Mexican food - which we cant get in Europe - we had to stop and give it a try. The food was surprisingly good - we had nachos, chimichangas and fish tacos. The owner lived in the USA so has the tex mex menu down and the margaritas for 1.50... More

Staff wasn't interested in serving anyone. Slow and lax. Food was ok and portions were good. Wouldn't go back here. Anywhere else in Siem Riep. But forget this place.

We have been here twice now, the first time they stuffed up my order but I didn't care. The staff are attentive but I wouldn't say overly friendly. The good was tasty, plentiful and well priced. Even though the restaurant is off pub st, draught beer is still 50c. Best of all are the $1.50 margaritas!! No wonder we came... More

This place did amazing margaritas for AUD$1.50 - it was great to sit, eat and people watch. Try to get a table out on the street side. Wifi was easy to get here so we made it out lunch spot.

Ordered chicken wings and nachos that were good, but the Khmer food was not. Order their tex mex food, but save the tasting of the traditional Khmer food for another place.

In 3 weeks time in Cambodia, we had 5/6 times dinner and lunch over there. I really recommend their supreme nachos and their salsa is great! Tacos were also nice too, unfortunately is a soft shell ones 1.50$ margarita!! what can you ask for more? There´s different kind of food also, Khmer cuisei, Thai and Asia.
