Cheap little restaurant in a clean back alley off Pub Street. No fancy decor. Very cold beer, and good cocktail selection. Extensive menu, and good food with good spice mixes. Went there several times. Always greeted with smiles. Attentive staff but not obtrusive. Loved it

This place is a refreshing change from the hassles you get from the beggars on pub street. I recommend you look down the lane ways behind pub street and you will find gems everywhere.

An unpretentious and simple small restaurant. The atmosphere and the decor are a little bit rundown and scratchy, but everything is just delicious. The manager is gentle and nice. The food's good too. Cambodian cuisine: the most exquisite plate is the chicken amok. Fuit plates are fresh and juicy. Prices are in line with local economy, so be prepared to... More

We had a wonderful meal, so much so that we went back the next night. Not only was it a few dollars cheaper than the other restaurants in Siem Reap, we found the food was so fresh and delicious. The staff were also lovely and the food came out very quickly.

I've eaten here a few times for lunch and dinner and it is simply great Cambodian food for great prices. The curries Ans soups are recommend if you're not sure what to try.

This little place is down an alley a bit hard to find but the food was ok, the service was soooo slow. Our meals came out at odd times! We ordered a garlic bread, the burger, chicken with capsicum and onion, 2 beers & a water total $10.50.... It's across from a creperie which smelt good too!

I have been to For Life in previous years and always find time to return. The food is delicious, the beer really cold and the service is charming and efficient, thanks to the waiter who has been there for a number of years now. It never ceases to amaze me that it is always quiet, possibly because its location on... More

We had some of the best meals since the start of our Siem Reap. We went to all the top rated and most wanted restaurants already and decided to try this one since two of our top choice were on leave and we need to find something to eat. Definitely nothing special and the worst meal we had in Siem... More

Just 5 mins away from the busy and noisy Pub Street is where the restaurant is situated. Despite the non-impressive facade, the food is pretty decent. The banana blossom salad was my pick of the meal. Great starter! The Fish Amok is alright but a bit too creamy in taste for our liking. Lastly, you have to complete the meal... More
