We had Dinner tonight at Pou and it was just brilliant. Overall a great menu. Some special stuff but also a lot of local Cambodian food.
The staff is great as well. Really friendly and always there.
If you have time, have a chat with the chief, he's a nice guy and he can tell you something about how spice you can get your food. :-)
We´ll go there again in the next 2 days. Definitely!

We have visited Siem Reap recently and had dinner at Pou Restaurant. We recommend it highly to those who want to try authentic kmer cuisine, fusion and street food. The dishes were well presented and very inviting, the ingredients fresh and tasty. Furthermore we had this wonderful experience by partecipating to a food tour through the market organized by Mr. Mork Mengly, the young and very talented chef and owner, himself.

Pou was recommended by a friend and it was such a treat. I went back for two more meals, all delicious and artistically presented. The ingredients are high quality and flavorful, the dishes all unique and satisfying. The cocktails are equally creative and the staff recommended excellent pairings with each meal. Prices are similar to simple tourist restaurants but the food is a world apart! The chef/owner and his business partner are engaging, delightful guys to chat with. Can't wait to return!

Little restaurant in Wat Damnak area, great tasting and well presented food. Chef and partner from Rambutan Resort and doing very well. Cambodian food is really good if you care to be adventurous, and this place shows how the younger generation can make you experience the wonderful taste of Cambodia.

We visited the Pou Restaurant during our trip to Siem Reap, and found the food to be very tasty and interesting.

I definitely recommend a visit if you are looking for some Khmer food with a modern twist. According to the manager, the cook buys the fresh ingredients every morning in the market an structures the specials based on what is available and fresh.

The restaurant is very small, less than 20 seats, so you may want to reserve.
