I can't believe we ate all our dinner because the portions were so generous, but it was that tasty we couldn't stop eating! We had the chicken schnitzel and the beef stew- highly recommend both! We were told to come here by the owner of Belmiro's and so glad he told is about this place!

I come almost every year and look forward to eating here it's one of my favourite places to eat! Love the portion size but I was a little disappointed as the schnitzels are getting pretty thin - you can compare the 2012 and 2016 of the schnitzels but still taste excellent. Still such a great place to enjoy dinners.

Thank you for the nice review but when the size of the food is big and the taste is excellent and the restaurant is still a great place to go than it's a mystery for us to be quoted with 3 stars which means average. Kind regards Werner More

Hidden place, not easy to find, great schnitzel by quality and size. There is about a 10 minute wait for the food but that is because the schnitzel is prepared and cooked to order. Nice, thoughtful servers as well. Although the locations a bit off, I recommend it.

For people in love for soul food... Very popular in Siem Reap. The schnitzel was awesome & so were the side dishes. Unless you're a big eater, order the small portion. Food hit the spot after a week of lovely Asian food!

This place has the biggest and best tasting cordon bleu I've ever eaten! And for a very reasonable price, congratulations, all my friends were highly satisfied with what they had also

We came here as tourists due to the great reviews, we had rib eyes which was very tough. I would thought this place keep the meet too long as it almost no taste at all. The staff were ok but lack of professionalism. We ordered mixed up our drink but I guest that is ok.

Dear customer I have my doubts about this review and if it is a genuine review based upon your experiences than they are at odds with all former reviews and I find your title very unrespectable and insulting.Regards More

We visited this restaurant twice during our short stay in Siem Reap. Our first visit, there was live music and a friendly Belgian lady singing. Couples got up to dance to the music, and we immediately felt welcomed and comfortable as if we have been coming here for years! The owner/manager of the bistro presented us complimentary chocolate mousse and... More
