I have traveled to this area many times and I've only tried this establishment once but I get very sick after eating their soup. My driver ate there as well and got very sick. I hope this was an isolated incident but I won't likely try it again.

My husband and I happened to stumble upon Common Grounds around lunch time on a drizzly day in Siem Reap. I had the chicken baguette served with a creamy dijon mustard style dressing and a complimentary salad as a side dish. My husband had a cheeseburger and chose fries as his complimentary side dish. Both were delicious. The service was... More

The food was really good, and what the rest of my table ordered all looked great as well. the environment was cool, with 2 levels of seating, and a modern but natural feel. serves food and full Coffee service for your out-of-country Java fix. 5 stars,...

The food is very tasty and authentic, considering the cafe giving out a very western vibe. Drinks are super lush, too. The staff is friendly and very helpful. We have truly enjoyed out peaceful break at the Common Grounds.

I had some iced tea which came unsweetened, sometimes a rare find in Asia. Delicious chicken Cesar salad. So good, now I'm going to try the crispy chicken salad for second dinner.

What a disappointment. The air conditioning is the only thing going for this place. Firstly, there's quite literally nothing vegetarian on the menu. In this day and age when a huge number of people don't eat meat, this is just frustrating. So for lunch I 'made my own breakfast' with the worst poached eggs I have ever had in my... More
