“Excellent service from friendly smiley girls,chilled atmosphere, too far out!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

The service is excellent - the 3 girls arranged a trip to the killing fields, booked our bus ticket and hotel in Siem Riep and even arranged for the next hotel to pick us up! All with a big friendly smile. Just next to the Russian Market which is off the Lonely Planet map and away from all the main spots - we paid around $3 each time we wanted to visit the centre, which needs to be factored into the cost of the room - $19 for a double with private toilet. Also our booking, which we did a month before, was lost, although we still got the room we wanted. Would stay closer next time but if you want a bit of peace and quiet would recommend.

Thanks for posting such a lovely review with helpful advice for fellow travellers. Unfortunately this posting has come through to our restaurant page and is not showing on the Guesthouse page. I will attempt to contact trip advisor to seek a rectification, but if you have the opportunity to re-post on the Guesthouse page that would be much appreciated.

Kind regards.

“Good but not amazing”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

I went there for drinks, and the rooftop is very small and crowded. Also not really the best part of town to stay.

“The food is excitingly good!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Stayed here as a guest and decided to eat here that night. the food was delicious. we ended up eating there again each day we stayed and were pleasantly surprised each time. The staff and owners were very friendly. Everything we got was great value. Make sure you try more than one dish, but definitely have to have a pie and the quesadillas......Yummy!!

“The Local was my local”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

I stayed with a group of friends at the Local during a month of traveling through South East Asia. The location is just perfect - the Russian Market area has a much more authentic feel to it than the tourist-heavy riverside. But getting to the popular night life is easy as and only a few minutes away. The ensuite room I stayed in was very comfortable and clean, and the staff always friendly and helpful. The highlight though was definitely the tropical feeling rooftop bar. They even have free wi-fi up there so I was able to take my laptop up in the afternoons and catch up with friends back home.
