About
Chef Mengly has developed a unique culinary view that great food should be fun yet sophisticated, innovative yet familiar and expressive. Chef Mengly’s approach to the Pou Restaurant and Bar which menu was one of simplicity with an injection of freshness and adventure. He is renowned for his innovative dishes featuring high quality produce, beautiful herbs and vegetables. This has allowed his out of the box flavor combinations and artistic plating to present a far more approachable style with rustic dining. A laid back friendly kind of a guy, Mengly says the two greatest things about his job are working with his awesome partner and team, plus mentoring young and upcoming chefs.

We went to Pou’s and had a delicious assortment spread across a large banana leaf, showcasing many types of specialty and unique Cambodian foods. It was a great meal with great service, and a very charming setting. They even provided big spray and hand sanitizer.

Had a wonderful dinner with my girlfriend. The staff was extraordinary, smiling, took the time to explain everything really well in English. Has been opened for 4 months now, and I hope they will stay opened! Go eat here!

Delicious food and very attentive service! I had the beef salad and mackerel main dish which were great. The chips which they served before the mains arrived were excellent too. Will surely return the next time I’m in Siem Reap.

Superb if you want a tranquil setting and some khmer cuisine with a twist. Their grilled beehive is to die for. We had the house special and the beef with sour soup and red ant. The latter was delicious. Cocktails were great. All high end...normal prices but worth it.More

Authentic local ambience with high cuisine food. The owner and master chef Panha, are graduates of Paul Dubrule and passionate about their cuisine from creation to presentation. My $3 breakfast of Char Mei was 5 star and even included a latte. Add this 'must do'...to your Angkor trip if you love local food experienceMore
