“cozy, compact and nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2013

I visited this restaurant last evening and I had to wait as it was full of guests.
I ordered a Caiprinha cocktail which was nicely decorated but wasn't up to taste but no worries... the server lady made it to my taste. I had some khmer (or vietnamese) veg rolls which were really yummy. Another chicken dish I ordered was also delicious. The place was full and owner or servers were very friendly.
It is not a place to have a romantic dinner but very good for eating.... I would like to come here again....
Thank you Father's crew?

“Boring!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Popped in to this small little restaurant very near the old market after reading reviews here but was ended up disappointed. The food was really not up to the standard I would have expected for establishments in this highly competitive area. Maybe the evening i visited, the cook was off but the food was bland, boring and neither meant for tourist nor for locals (and expats).
The place is small, simple and non fancy with slow service but their prices were like other pub street outlets, so definetely this was poor value for money.

“No frills restaurant with good food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

This is the place to have a quick lunch near Pub St without the noise and the crowd. Their fish in tamarind sauce was delicious. Their fresh coconut juice served in its shell is only $1, cheaper than the other restaurants we have been to in Siem Reap. You can also eat the coconut meat after you drank the juice (they'll halved the coconut shell for you). Service was quick and courteous.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

This is the second resto we tried in SR. We read in the local guide book that is one of the best restos in SR. Good location. The place is small, not fancy. We ordered beef loklak, fish amok and pork ribs in salt and pepper. The price ranges from $3-$5 per order. If you are in SR, this is worth a try,
