“PASS”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

I would give this restaurant a pass. The buffet were at best mediocre serving aboutt 300+ plus guest the night we were there. The food was simple fare and it was so crowded trying to just pick up the food. Drinks were not included but the price was reasonable. The show was not well produced. The dancers appear to be just doing their routine. But I understand this restaurant is THE place to go for the Apsara show in Siem Reap.

“Good food good entertainment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We were recommended this restaurant by the hotel and made reservation in advance. It gets packed very quickly though we were there early. The food selection is so wide. We were entertained with local traditional dance while feasting on the local delights. Their costume is just so beautiful. A place worthy of 2nd time.

“Skip this one ”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

This is a must PASS. The food was mediocre at best and that is if there was food there at all. They just did not bring out food fast enough, a way to save money I suppose. Most of the time 3/4 of the service trays were empty and when they brought a fresh plate it was gone right away because people were standing around waiting for plates of food to come out .
The dancing was short and if you really want to see and learn of the dance there must be educational dance shows in town.

“Good food and apsara dance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

This is a one time try. The food variety is simple huge, though vegetarians may find less variety. Go a day or two early to book for a nearer view of the Apsara dance. Gets packed very fast even on a weekday that we had been. This is a good attraction for people who like the local culture.
