Christa is a nice little restaurant that offers both Khmer and Western food options at a very affordable price. Lovely staff and quiet atmosphere coupled with absolutely delicious food won us over and we came back to this place several times during our first month in Siem Reap. If you are unsure about what to order, be sure to ask the super friendly owner for a recommendation. Great value for money.

Trip advisor was absolutely right. After visiting WILD we can for a main course and both food and the South African wine were perfectly good and at very reasonable prices. We’ve come back for starters here. Salad Niçoise and tempura prawns 👍👍👍 Chhane very good host.

Very feng-shui restaurant, clean and great Chef. Both the Tom yam soup and the vegetable curry were delicious and delicate. Price are way bellow the practice from pub street : indeed it is worth walking a bit (300 meters) from those noisy crowded places Splendid

Went to this restaurant on the back of excellent reviews and unfortunately were disappointed. Service was incredibly slow despite the restaurant not being busy and I was tempted to walk out a few times. This was after asking waiters where food was multiple times. When the food did eventually come out, quality was lacking too. Fried crumbed prawns were not crispy and did not taste fresh. Chips were cold, not crispy or crunchy and unsalted. No salt shakers were on the table so I’m not sure if it is meant to be seasoned yourself. The steak and sauce was acceptable but the cut did not look appealing and was over cooked. Have had much better elsewhere.

I do apologize on behalf of everyone at the Christa. Please know that your situation was an exception. As you know (you live here) Covid took a hit on all of us and with a small staff trying to come back, it has been challenging. You did request all meals to come out at one time, hence the delay. We are known for taking ownership and caring deeply about our customers. We can’t fix the past, but you have my personal commitment to improve the way our staff serves every customer, local or tourist.

We visited in Feb 2020, the food was great and at a very reasonable price especially compared with the main street. All the staff were very friendly and service was fast. Its definitely worth the short walk from pub street to this hidden gem. Will be going back before we leave!

Only POSITIVES~~ The Khmer food was tasty, unique, beautifully presented, and affordable. The owner, who named restaurant after his daughter, was charming, engaging, wise (brought chefs from countryside who truly knew how to prepare authentic Khmer dishes and has persevered enthusiastically to help create a restaurant that adds so many positives to guests visiting Siem Reap. We ate dinner at Christa's last night, tonight and likely will return tomorrow. Have not found other options in Siem Reap that compare in overall experience! Nothing negative except leaving Siem Reap & unable to take owner, chefs, menu and wait staff home to USA so I could continue to enjoy beyond memories.

This Restaurant is absolutely recommendable, a bit outside but easy to reach. We tried traditional khmer food and it was extremely delicious!!! The owner and the staff is very friendly and open-minded. The prices are much much cheaper compared to those of the restaurants around the pup street. Unfortunately it was our last day, otherwize we would have gone there a second time!!!

This charming restaurant has a nice vibe to it and an extensive menu with a variety of dishes. In addition to meat and fish they have amazing vegetarian and vegan options listed on their menu and they are happy to veganise any of their non vegan dishes. I ordered tofu amok (menu lists meat and fish but they happily done tofu for me) - and it was absolutely divine! Venue 10/10 Service 10/10 Food 10/10 Value for money 10/10 The owner, Rak, is absolutely lovely and will go out of his way to do anything to ensure that guests have a good time. Highly reccomended this restaurants to anybody looking for good food and experience!

Found this place via a Google search for the best cheap restaurants in Siem Reap. We were not disappointed! We were welcomed by friendly staff, and tasty food was served promptly. Prices are very good, and the restaurant feels lovely and modern. The restaurant looks clean and welcoming, and bathroom facilities were also incredibly clean. Even though we didn't spent a lot of money (we're 2 backpackers on a tight budget for our long trip) we were treated so kindly by staff. Every single staff member was so attentive and genuinely cared about our experience in their restaurant. We were made to feel like valued customers, and we will most certainly visit again. Service goes a long way in my book, and I think the level of service shown here would be hard to beat, we haven't received this standard of service anywhere else in Siem Reap. The BEST restaurant we have tried so far in Siem Reap.

We came here twice during our visit to Siem Reap. The food was delicious - especially the mango salad, veggie stir fry, banana egg rolls and crepes. Moreover the staff is highly attentive and very accommodating. Prices are quite reasonable.

This was our favorite restaurant on our entire trip!! The best food we had in 3 weeks Cambodia. First thing we tried were the Khmer style spring rolls - they were so good that when we went a second time we ordered more of these to take on our bus trip with us. Then we both got stir fry vegetables with rice, my bf with beef, and me with chicken. Sooooo good. It was truly delicious. The drinks were also very good. And the service was great too. We didn't feel like someone was staring over our shoulder watching us eat ( like we did at other places), but if we wanted more or wanted the bill we could easily get someone's attention (proved to be difficult at other places). The food was so delicious and the staff were extremely friendly, that we decided to come back the next day again before we left Siem Reap. 100% recommend to anyone who wants great food, great staff and great prices.

Fantastic food and stunning service. Ate here a few times during our stay in Siem Reap, food was always tantalisingly tasty. Plentiful positions and pleasing prices. Christa, you’re a star.

Lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Couldn't fault the food - particularly recommend the red curry for mains and banana pancakes or sweet potato in coconut milk for dessert. This place is a little further out than some, but still only a few minutes walk from Pub Street and the Art Center Night Market. £20 for 3 courses and drinks for 2 people. We tried other restaurants with far inferior food at triple the price! Give it a try- you won't regret it!

We had two times dinner at Christa's. If you are there, look out for a table on the balcony, it offers a nice view to the street. We ordered local rice dishes to be not to hot and spicy. The taste was good, the server was on a learning curve, but did it's best. The manager was very service oriented and helpful. Good choice for a quieter place close to pub street.
