Great hidden gem in an alley. Try the salads-fresh and super prices. The banana blossom salad is my favorite. Cold draft beer, and the appetizers of fried shrimp and calamari are excellent.

One of my go-to restaurants in Siem Reap. In an alley parallel to Pub Street. Family run and quite good.You can't go wrong with any of the curries or salads. Cheap draft beer and tasty fruit shakes. A quieter option and better value than Pub Street.

Ate here a couple of times as it was recommended as we walked by and patrons told us how good it was. They weren't wrong! Good service, delicious food at a very reasonable price and 50 cent beers. What more could you want? Free internet? You've got it. Really good.

Wonderful family-run restaurant in a surprisingly quiet corner of Old Market. The menu is clear with brief descriptions and photos, and when the food arrives, it does look like the picture shown! Prices are very reasonable. You seem to get more than you pay for. If you need more rice, it is not charged. The fresh fruit juices are also... More

We love Thai food and we are not satisfied with anything... It must be 'outstanding quality' that we write a review. In this local, we ate one of the best Thai food since long time! She is from Cambodia and he is Thai.

Popular among expats, so expect less tourists and delicious local food. The owner is great: he explained a lot about Cambodian cuisine and shared some of his own dinner with us to show us other things you can make with the ingredients in our food.
