This was the best meal that we had whilst we were in the city. The rice balls and bee hive salad were delicious starters and we both had the chicken curry as our main meal which was fantastic!

We visited on a recommendation and had a great meal, trying lots of new dishes we hadn't experienced elsewhere in Siem Reap. It's quite a foodie place, so not many options for young or fussy kids. Unless they try the chicken with red ants ;-)More
