This restaurant is tucked away in a back street of Siem Reap. We had read good reviews of it and were expecting it to be a bit better than we found it. The food was nice, although not exciting - maybe we chose poorly - and the restaurant was on the quiet side the night we visited. A large table... More

This was my favorite meal in Cambodia. The ambiance was amazing and the barbecue was off the charts. Super romantic for couples as well. One caveat - use a tuk-tuk to get here at night. It's on a dark street. We walked and were safe, but I would not do that again.

Found this as a result of Trip-advisor, many thanks it was outstanding. Great atmosphere, food and bill. For six with fold and beer $64 how do you brag that. They send tuktuk to pick you up and take you home. Beat theta!

We visited this wonderful restaurant on a recent trip with friends. We had a group of 6 families, which included 9 children under the age of 4. We were able to pre order our meals and the restaurant staff helped organise tuk tuks to transport us between the restaurant and the hotel (which the children all loved!). The playground served...

Dear Millencie, it was an absolute pleasure to communicate with you prior to your arrival. It makes things very easy for us if larger groups are so well organized! We are always happy to welcome the kids, we have so much space and toys around, the kids easily keep themselves busy for a while when we prepare the meals. Thanks... More

Whilst staying at our wonderful resort Shinta Mari, we were recommended this restaurant by one of the staff. We took a srll there only to find a beautiful garden restaurant off the beaten track. We were brought lots of mosquito repellent rings as we were surrounded by the mites and offered a very versatile menu of both Khmer cuisine and... More

Thanks very much Julie for your wonderful words. It is great to hear that Shintamani trusts us for recommendations as we regularly invite hotel staff to eat with us (on invitation) so they can get an idea of who we are and what we serve and do. Having so many restaurants in town, it is not easy to establish yourself... More

This restaurant was a lovely find! In reality it is very close to the centre but amazingly it keeps the illusion of being out in the wilderness! Set amidst a lovely garden, there are multiple thatched roof enclaves so each group of diners gets maximal privacy. The food far exceeded our expectations as well! The menu has a wide variety...

A visit to Siem Reap is not complete without us dining at this restaurant. We always feel so comfortable and relaxed in the garden setting where tables all have privacy in their individual huts. The food is tasteful and service friendly and efficient. Sipping cocktails here is the perfect end to a tiring day at the temples. Deserts are also... More

We dined at Tangram Garden on our first night in Siem Reap, and we very much enjoyed the evening. Our server provided flawless service, and the owner checked in with us as well to ensure that we were satisfied. We both ordered grilled pork dishes, which were extremely reasonably priced and very well executed with large portion sizes. The surroundings... More

Great to hear you had a good time with us Sid. Vien, your waiter, used to be our security guard and we (the other waitresses actually) trained him to become a waiter as well.

Four of us ate here recently and the setting was truly amazing. The restaurant is located in a lush garden, where diners sit in open sided pavilions. Quality of service and attention to detail are paramount. We ordered a variety of dishes, comprising vegetarian and non-vegetarian mains - all of which were pronounced excellent.
