Ordered food here on several occasions during our stay. Never had a bad meal. I was thrilled to finally get decent sauv blanc wine at a reasonable price (make... More

Living in SE Asia and suffering through atrocious Mexican food I was delighted to find Viva! I ended up eating there for lunch and dinner every day for my entire trip. The Chimi was fab.

We didn't get Mexican in Viva which is something I rarely do, if you go to a Mexican restaurant I feel like you should eat the Mexican food. However we really wanted a nice Cambodian feed and were not let down. We shared the chicken amok and a hot basil pork stir fry, both so so delicious! With three beers... More

The claim that this is the best Mexican food in town may or may not be true, but don't get your hopes up that it's authentic. The so-called chimichanga looked nothing like the picture in the menu, instead it was a pair of hard flour tortillas with admittedly tasty shredded beef filling. What were alleged to be jalapenos were thick-skinned... More

We went there multiple times throughout our stay in Siem Reap, although its not Cambodian cuisine, it was delicious. For a CORIANDER hater, it was everywhere!

We enjoyed some nice enchiladas and icy cold margarita's at Viva. The portion sizes were very generous and the price reasonable. There was a very large menu to select from including Mexican, local and western foods.

Stopped in for a few beers and a taco, both of which hit the spot. Might be back for more Mexican. Great spot for people watching and wasting time watching the world go by.
