Although a bit more expensive than other options in Siem Reap we can recommend a visit to Dakshin's. The restaurant serves great Indian food and we opted for chicken curry and aloo gobi. Both dishes tasted great and it is clear why the restaurant is so popular.

We fancied an Indian Curry for a change and as always looked on TripAdvisor. Dakshin's really came up trumps. They were full inside when we arrived at 19:00, so we took an outside table.

This was not only our best dining in Siem Reap it was high on our list for this trip in the beach at Thailand as well. Air-conditioned and very clean with great breads and flavorful curries. Would have given another star for draught beer!
