Great home cooked food

The food here is excellent, fresh, and flavorful. Offering traditional Khmer and Chinese cuisine with a splash of western foods for those looking for something closer to home.

Not a bad meal here. I had the fried pork with ginger and it was fresh and tasty. Also had the fried banana with coconut ice cream which was good too. The piña colada was ok but not fantastic and the service was good. Nothing much to rave about, but a solid performer. I don't think it deserves the tripadvisor... More

We arrived in Siem Reap at nicht and were amazed by the buzz and hustle around Pub Street, when we bumped into this small place offering local fare at reasonable prices. The service was quick and attentive; the food tasty and the prices in line with what others would charge.

Father's had come recommended from reviewers on this site and from some local guidebooks. It has also been recognized by China's www.lianorg.cn as a "Top Choice" restaurant in Siem Reap, which ramped up our expectations as we sat down to peruse the photo menu book of this quaint restaurant. Well, we sat and sat and sat, as service - though... More

Their food is nice. It really has the taste of Chinese people. We had a lot of local foods when we were there so at our last night, we had no idea what to have as our dinner. And we went to this restaurant recommended by a friend. We were like: "Whoa, can taste Chinese cuisine!" I was a bit... More

We have been visiting Siem Reap twice a year for the past six years. Father's is a great little family run restaurant near the Old Market, offering traditional food cooked as you like it. We especially recommend the Sweet and Sour Pork and Father's own tomato and tofu soup. For Indian - the best is Nameste on the main Sivatha... More

It is situated near the old market in a row of shop houses. Quite difficult to find as it is in the busy business area slightly off the old market.The shop is quite small and always full with customers both local and foreing tourists. Mainly chinese food with some local flavour. Well prepared and very good taste. Reasonably priced and... More

The food takes forever to prepared. I was the first to order among the 3 tables and it took about 30mins for them to served the first dish. The staff is not friendly at all. And he food is nothing to wow about. And the food is not for a weak stomach people like my partner. She got diarrhoea soon... More
