Impressive!

Chef Joannes is very attentive as he came out to explain the set menu himself. Service is good and food is fantastic with reasonable price. Love the braised prahok with minced pork and burnt black sticky rice cream!!! Highly recommended!

Armed with a reservation on the recommendation of friends, we were welcomed at this modern-accented kompong house with refreshing cold towels and immediately set in the mood for the meal to come. The dishes of both tasting menus were deceptively simple - small watermelon cube with pork floss as an amuse bouche, flower petals in the side salads. For some... More

We were curious on how a chef would prepare cambodian dishes in a set menu format. It was interesting trying different slants on items that we would not usually order. It was not the most sophisticated meal we have eaten but it was definitely enjoyable. It was good gastronomic adventure.

Very popular restaurant so must book well in advance, Khmer dishes cooked with FRench twist. Owner and chef is French. Impeccable service. All in all worthy of 1 Michellin star in my humble opinion.

We were told to visit this restaurant by a friend. Booked our resevation 2 weeks in advance. Now I know why! The food was delicous. They offer two set menus. You can either pick a 5 or 6 course meal! Every bite was just sublime. To top it off... The price was so reasonably priced! 5 star meal! Cuisine by... More

We had such a delicious meal here! There were two 6 course (with option to order only 5 courses) set menus, and I am so glad that I was there with my partner because we ordered both and enjoyed sharing every bite. The location was walking distance from our lodgings, and in a beautiful house-style building with options for both... More

Very much enjoyed the dinner here. It is a set menu but if you are happy to try different dishes and open to all things as we are you won't be disappointed. Kid friendly aswell as most places are in Siem Reap

This is a truly great restaurant. The food is amazingly good. It is creative, interesting, tasty, clever. The chef (French I believe) knows the local produce and creates two fantastic menus a week. It is the kind of inventive food that would have all the professional reviewers swoon in Europe. Wonderful.
