Viva $5 margaritas!!

After fish, fish and more fish it was nice to have beef, cheese and a carb other than rice!! Food was fine and loved the frozen margaritas!!! Nice for a change if you have been travelling in Asia for a while. Service was good too.

When we had an initial wander around Pub Street and the night markets on our first night in Siem Reap this place stood out because it was packed and the food on the plates looked delicious. So when we found ourselves outside it a couple of days later we thought we'd try it, and we weren't disappointed. Three of us... More

My friends and I went to Viva for dinner and all went for a different dish. Very much enjoyed my Mexican food. Didn't expect that in Siem Reap. Everything came out quite fast, look very good and tastes delicious. The location is very central and the set up is nice. The service was great and quite fast. It is not... More

The main draw at Viva seems to be the USD 5 Margarita pitchers which we saw on almost every table when we dined there. The food was reasonably good, service is okay, they have a reasonable number of vegetarian options (even if a lot of them taste similar).

I have to confess that I have eaten at Viva quite a few times, so many times that I lost count quite a long time ago. I can't really give them an excellent rating because I lived in Southern California for many years and have been to Mexico quite a few times. I love Mexican food and would gladly take... More

Came here for Tacos and coffee. This the small scale of Viva Restaurant, but the menu is quite similar. The place is smaller but still enjoy the ambient here. Nice to hangout and see the activity of the people on the street during the day.

The food at Viva is fabulous. I was so excited to get close-to Tex-Mex since I live out the country. However, both my friend and I found bugs in our different dishes. We informed the staff and they were very polite and kind and didn't charge us for it. I know I've eaten plenty of bugs at other places without... More

Not the most authentic of flavours, but if you are looking for a quick and decent fix for your Tex Mex yearnings and a very affordable one that is, then head to Viva which has several locations around town. The cheap and cheerful margaritas too are always a good company when you are with friends.

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).
