My friends and I visited this bar to play pool after dinner. We took our drinks and paid and were minding our own business by the pool table. After about 30 mins one of the staff who was drunk and making out with someone at the bar suddenly screamed “Everybody get the f*** out” while looking at us (at this moment there were only us and 2 others at a much further table having a chat) and went on and switched off the lights above our pool table, of all the lights in the place. Seemed like he didnt like having us there and wanted to get rid of us. He switched on the lights after a bit (after his colleagues called him) and said “who the f*** are those guys” at his colleagues. We felt really uncomfortable and unwelcome at this moment, so we stopped playing and left. Didnt even get a simple apology.

Only reason we went here is because of the good reviews but ended up having a very uncomfortable time. Never visiting again. Worst moment in our trip to Cambodia.

Tips: 1. Dont drink on duty, 2. Control your staff, 3. Show respect and have discipline

Such a creative place that hosts regular events like movie nights, I loved the references to George Orwell in small details.

The Republic is an oasis, a sanctuary of delicious and affordable vegetarian and non-vegetarian food in the heart of Siem Reap. I really enjoyed going there night after night for the tasty food and chill atmosphere it offers.

The staff is extremely friendly and attentive and the restaurant provides a safe and comfortable environment. It's located just outside of the centre of Siem Reap in a really quiet area (away from the craziness of Pub Street and Sok San)

Would recommend to anyone traveling to Siem Reap!

I write this review only to try and undo the insanely high rating of the restaurant. The food is below average. It should not have a 5 star rating. There are so many better places to eat in the area. Don't come here for 5 star food. You have been warned.
