My friend and I were on a hunt for affordable Khmer food to try on our first full day in Siem Reap, and we found this in the area surrounding Pub Street. We ordered the chicken amok ($4) and red curry ($4) for sharing, both of which came with half a cup of rice. I didn't (and I'm not sure... More

I can't believe I can have such good chinese food in Cambodia,the average cost is about USD$3~4 for each dish,these prices are even lower than in China, and mango shake is always my favorite.

Really high quality food. Lovely interiors and attentive service. They certainly know how to make a fuss for anyone who is having their birthday celebrations there! It was really very busy when we went on a Saturday evening but we were well looked after.

We saw a review of this place in our guidebook and decided to give it a try. We were really pleased we did! Food was better than some of the more expensive places on pub street and around, the tamarind fish was particularly tasty. The guy that served us was so friendly and taught us some Khmer phrases. Definitely go!

This place is a little gem outside the main strip of Siem Reap Pub Street area. The staff are friendly and the food is simply amazing. Every dish we had excited our taste buds. The Trie Proma (fish omelette) is the best I have ever tasted in Cambodia full stop. The cold spring rolls at $1.50 for 6 were full... More

Our last night in Siem Reap was rainy and cold. But the warmth in Father's kept us cosy. There's something about this place which stays true to its food instead of joining the Western themed bandwagon that you can observe in Pub Street. The place is cosy and simple. The waiting staff were cordial and genuine. To add on, the... More

Small place just dropped here for a simple dinner. We ordered a khmer curry which was very flat of taste and was served with a very little bowl of rice. ($4) added extra bowl rice ($0.50..) Dish was tasteful but nothing more than that. Vegetarian spring roles were just average The place is very simple like many other restaurants of... More

We have been in july 2014 in Fathers restaurant. After our first dinner in the restaurant we came back for 3 weeks every dinnertime. The food is so good and i hope when we come back next time we will enjoy the restaurant again. The servants that work in the restaurant are very nice. When you come inside they are... More

I miss the funky previous incarnation but this is still a great place to eat, and I have done so many times. They have an unusually large range of soups in both Chinese and Khmer styles all of which have impressed. Previously they'd always rustle up my favourite prahok but no luck this time. I'd recommend trying everything!

Fathers provides great traditional cuisine as it has been less seduced by the Western influence like those around the same area. The service and people were extremely helpful and great to chat with. The spring rolls and mango shakes are a must and at a great price.
