Our group of 7 had chicken burrito, steak burrito, pad thai with egg tortilla, prawn or chicken quesadilla, 2 types of nachos and 1 coffee, rest water. We spent US$35. Pad thai a little sweet but interesting presentation. Mecican food is of great standard and worth a 2nd visit

A decent Mexican restaurant, a surprise find in Cambodia. The usual tex mex items on the menu, prices reasonable for Siem Riep. Viva also does local dishes that sometimes outshone the Mexican dishes. Worth a visit.

We tried another Mexican restaurant another night and they weren't not even half as good as this place. The portions and prices were good but to top it off they also had great quality. Yes it isn't perfect, exactly the same as Mexican food from Mexico but it's probably the closet I have seen in all of Asia. If you... More

As a Texan living and working in Cambodia, I have to say that I'm happy to find decent TexMex food here. Been craving it for some time and I have to recommend it :)

Have stayed here before and on visiting again was pleased to see that it has not changed. The extensive menu is excellent value and the food extremely good, Service is also good and the waiters/waitresses or waitpersons(god I hate that term) are attentive. The majority of them speak reasonable English so communication is generally no problem. Drinks are inexpensive ,... More

Charming place where you go for just Coffee or Tea or a glass of Wine or Beer and also food which is always good. It's a place to sit and relax and people watch right across from the local Market.

My wife and I visited Viva on two occasions. Hint: Don't sit at the street side tables--too close to the tuk-tuks parked in masse and the occasional beggar. Our service was good and the room was well-staffed. $.75 for an ice cold mug of Anchor Beer and $1.50 for a house Margarita on the rocks. (Not saying much, but better... More

Not the best Mexican I've ever had. But still pretty good after wandering around town all morning. No problems with service. The English is so-so, but quick service. Good size portions and very tasty.

If you are looking for drinks only, it's not a bad spot. But don't expect any service, just go straight to the bar to order. If you would like to have some Mexican food, it's better to wait for another moment. Nachos come with white beans, small amounts and are below average.
