Nice friendly atmosphere, very attentive wait staff and amazing food. Much more reasonably priced with better quality food than the restaurants at Pub St. We loved the local fried fish - so crunchy on the outside and the sauce to accompany it was spot on.

Wonderful food and lovely staff - even going out in the pouring rain to put covers down to stop rain coming into us. We had Mango salad. Fish Amok and banana and chocolate samosas. All of it was fantastic and would highly recommend it. Really...fresh and tasty. Very reasonable too, given the quality of food. Lovely to talk to the staff too about Covid and their plans for the future. They look after their staff and shows in the quality of service they provide. Some of the best food we ate in Siem ReapMore

We had dinner at Sambo recently. There was a huge selection on the menu and we really enjoyed our meal. Good prices and service was fantastic. The owner said hello to every table and was so friendly. It started raining during the meal and we...didn’t have an umbrella. She helped organize a tuk tuk ride for us, which was much appreciated. Definitely check this place out if you’re in siem reap!More

Went to this place for dinner with wife to try some local food with the fall back of Thai. Really enjoyed everything we had from pumpkin soup and chicken skewers (of which the accompanying green mango salad was a hit), to the pad Thai and...Khamir dish I had was very good. Although not vegan, everything on menu could be made so I think. May go back again tonight. Bill including 3 drinks was less than $30 US. Glad they made it through the pandemic.More

Delicious dinner and very friendly service. It seems repetitive from reviews below, but the food is delicious and the servers are very friendly. Yes, all the customers are tourists (thank you, TripAdvisor), but the food and service are worth the visit.
