What a great little restaurant!

We had the following dishes: POUrk Belly Noodles and Nem Trey Sbeak Jrouk. Both were amazing.... in fact the pork belly noodles was one of the best dishes Ive eaten.

Great service with even the chef visiting us.

Cocktails yummy

A must eat place in Siem Reap

There are a lot of decent restaurants in SR, but I can not say we had been to place that was actually exciting until we were referred to Pou Restaurant. The chef is very young and motivated to create something different and he succeeds. The menu is limited and if you are late not everything on it might still be available. In any case talk to the chef and see what he can recommend that day and chances are good you will not be disappointed.

For the more adventurous among you, there a dishes with insects in them. But there is a very good beef Lao Lak, which is totally save and insect free.

Dear Anigo,

It's our pleasure to read your review and glad you enjoyed our dishes.
You are right, sometimes we ran out some dishes on the menu as POU serve only daily freshest vegetable and ingredients. But our chef will always on the side and help you sort out your favorite. your next visit please try the adventure and different flavor 'beehive'.
We are looking forward to seeing you again in the future.
With Regards,
Bora

Cambodian cuisine with a fusion twist. Very polite and genuine service. A fantastic unexpected culinary experience that competes with the 5* gourmet temples. This hidden jewel will soon need its guests to make reservations.

We were looking for a cooking lesson while in Siem Reap and our tour guide suggested we contact a friend of his who has just recently opened his own restaurant and is offering food tours and cooking lessons. We arranged a time and Mengly Mork, otherwise known as Pou, met us at our hotel and transported us to the old market via a Tuk-tuk. We explored the various foreign fruits and vegetables, powders and pastes, and fish both alive and dead, smoked and salted with some sampling and lots of explanations. After that introduction, we walked over the bridge to Pou Restaurant and Bar, where our chef had already prepared all the ingredients for the 3 dishes we were to cook, then enjoy for our lunch. We chopped and pulverized, sliced and stir fried under the careful eye of Pou and his assistant Panha Ly, in an immaculate open air kitchen located above the restaurant. Though primitive looking to us Westerners, it had all the necessary equipment. The dishes we made were right off the menu and were delicious, even our versions! I imagine if made by Pou himself, they would have been even better. We enjoyed a couple of his strong signature cocktails, "Pou Mok", while eating and left as happy and full as two newly fledged Cambodian cooks could be! We made a Smoked Fish and Steamed Pork Skin appetizer, Beef LakLok and Ginger Steamed Pudding and I have a certificate to prove it!! Great fun and super nice people.
