Restaurant was fully booked. Reservation is recommended. We stayed upstairs with no airco, but enough fans to cool down. I think the atmosphere upstairs is more authentic than the airconditioned room downstairs. Choice between 2 menus in 5 or 6 servings. Really refined dishes with...More

Our second trip to this little gem! Food was delicious and by Singapore prices cheap! Wine was also very good and well priced. The service was friendly and efficient without being overbearing or 'stuffy' We will eat here again on our next trip.

Here is the only restaurant in the entire country of Cambodia to be named one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants! The langoustine pancake in the first photo reminded me of Chinese 白飯魚 (noodlefishes) omelettes. It’s served with yam bean, green papaya pickles, and tomalley emulsion....More

Very good local restaurant in Siem Reap. Impressive service offered by young Cambodian staff. I think I had the best meal there and would love to recommend.
