The prices are quite high for a town like Siem Reap and while the food was OK, it wasn't that good. The place seems to cater tourists mainly. Service was good, nice ambiance, just a bit over-priced.

Away from Pub Street which is a plus, this little Italian place does some pretty good food. We went for a pizza and carbonara, both of which were well portioned and full of flavor at a decent price point. Not a bad option if you crave Italian.

We went here for the "buy one pizza, get one for $1" and my kids were very happy with the pizza which had a light thin crust. My kids 7 and 5 hate crust that is too crispy, but loved everything about the pizza at Kholene. Bring right across from our guesthouse, the Shadow of Angkor II on Wat Bo... More

Kholene is an 'Italian' restaurant in Cambodia. Best reason to go here: it is NOT in that terrible Pub Street, that begins to look like Chersonissos and Lorett de Mar. The pizza's at Kholene are good and tasty. The pasta's could not steal my heart. The Carbonara was made with a creamy sauce with herbs I never tasted in Italy.... More

‘’Buy one pizza and get one for 1 dollar’’, we have been stupid enough to believe, the price of the second one is definitely included in the price of the first one. Not recommended at all, actually better to avoid this place.

A nice place to take your wife for a cock tale. Service was a little slow. English was not well spoken. Prices were a little high.

Kholene is a hidden gem in Siem Reap. The atmosphere is wonderful, and the food is even better. A lot of effort has been put into training the staff, and creating a well rounded restaurant that has everything going for it. I highly recommend it.
