Good food, good location

We went to this restaurant for dinner and ate local food, which was very good. Great location to watch the world go by and the beer and other drinks were great value, especially around happy hour. Staff were all very nice and to service good. A great place to hang out.

The chimichanga vegetarian was a great dish, and it was quick. I was impressed! The margarita was ok, there were some bugs inside (probably from the straws).

We went to this restaurant 3 times during our stay in Siem Reap. The food is fantastic. I would recommend the Viva Chimichanga. The beer isn't expensive, so a great place to go to with friends. Staff are all very nice too.

I really loved this Mexican restaurant, For starters, it was great Mexican food yet no one there was even Mexican oriented there. Apparently they have the only margaritas in town. Very good service. BAD PART: TOO MUCH FOOD!!

The food was very mediocre and we had to send the mango margaritas we ordered back because they didn't taste of anything. They did replace them with no charge which was nice of them. Good central location though and reasonably priced.

The place is nicely located in the center. The food was fine for the kids and very simple for adults. Good to go there for a cold beer and snacks.

I have been traveling in India and Nepal for almost 2 months, and was desperately craving something avocado-related when I arrived in Siem Reap. Viva's guac and chips were passable, but my chicken burrito missed the mark. It was too spicy for me, with a sparse amount of chicken, that is frankly somewhat off-putting to consume in the middle of... More

This was honestly the best food I've had on ages. My wife had the same to say. I've never had better Mexican food ever, and I never thought I'd find it in Cambodia of all places. They also had a very good tequila selection (though they should keep some in the freezer). The prices are good as is the location... More
