Description: Open from 11.00 am - 10.00 pm (SINGING WAITER performs 2 or 3 times in the evening), Genevieve's is a Khmer/Western restaurant in Sok San Rd., close to Pub Street. It is down a lane next to Chenda Pharmacy and is open Monday to Saturday (we are closed on Sundays). At Genevieve's we provide carefully prepared and presented menu items such as Prawn Tempura, Beef Lok Lak, Fish and Chicken Amok, Chicken and Vegetable Curry, Tasmanian Tenderloin, Atlantic Salmon, Thai Duck Breast, Lasagne, Pizza, Mango Liqueur Crepes, Chocolate Mousse, Snowy Banana and many more. The cheapest food on the menu is prepared with as much care and attention as the most expensive. As far as is possible, the sauces etc. are home-made. The drinks are delicious and our waiters are attentive and professional. We give 10% of our profits to the staff and 10% to 4 local NGOs. This last 10% is used to help run a community garden, sponsor a very needy family, provide equipment for a local building program and run a breakfast program. We aim to set up a school/community building in or outside Siem Reap in the future. Our staff are encouraged to improve in all aspects of restaurant life. One of our waiters, Sovy, has a beautiful voice. He sings a capella and many a customer has been moved by his performance. Excellent food, attentive service, interesting music collection, singing waiter, good cause, relaxed atmosphere.

“An unforgettable evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014 via mobile

Last night in Siem Reap. Picked Genevieve's from TA reviews. So glad we did. Food very nice. Service first rate. Price very reasonable. Lovely NZ Sauvignon B for only $15. Pleasant relaxed ambiance. But the highlight was the beautiful haunting singing of the waiter-reduced us to tears. If this not enough, a good percentage of profits goes to staff and good causes. Get a tuk tuk and go there.

“There are no words to express just how good this restaurant is...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Highlight meal of our time in Siem Reap. Fantastic red Curry and to die for Mango liqueur crepe.. Dont know how we squeezed in in but worth every pound ive surely put on!

Lovely ambiance, some well chosen music playing in the background, very personable wait staff and a lovely young chap called Sovi who sang a few songs. He has beautiful voice and an interesting story. It all made for a great evening- one I won't forget in a hurry.

Keep up the good work you are doing there. I will recommend you at everyone I know who is likely to visit Siem Reap in the coming year( it's a very popular holiday for 50 something flash packers from the uk!)

“fantastic food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2014

We were very lucky to get a table last night and tonight. We did not want to go anywhere else. The food is the best in SR - best red curry and fish amok and pizza! The courtyard ambience with great music and impeccable friendly service is wonderful. Well done for creating this place!
