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.

After reading reviews for this restaurant we made the choice of eating here. Friendly staff? We certainly did not experience this. Watching them serve other people they where being treated the same. Cokes slide across the table. You ordered 2!!! When people questioned getting 2 of things. Feel very let down.

This was a great find as it is really cheap, cheaper than Siem reap's typical western price increase! Best mango shake for $1, and 10 rice paper rolls for $1.75 which kept me coming back. Cool family history too.

Ate here tonight. Pork wontons were so tasty and our mains (sweet&sour, cashew nut chicken) were delicious. Big portions too. The waitresses were lovely and happily changed some of my large notes for me. Great place!!

I was exploring the area and felt hungry. Lo and behold! I saw this restaurant that had a sign saying it was endorsed by Trip Advisor. I decided then and there to eat at that resto. It's a small resto that serve cheap meals. I enjoyed my meal and I'm looking forward to eating here again when I go back... More

We ate here last year and liked it, so we returned this year and it was equally as good. We had a lovely chicken stir fry and a green mango salad both were very tasty. As i said in a previous review, this place is not fancy but it is good, cheap meal.

During 5 weeks in SE Asia so far we have not eaten at the same restaurant twice, this one we have been to three times. As well as Father's we have eaten in at least five other places in Siem Reap and this is by far the best. Food is all prepared on demand using fresh ingredients, many that are... More
