“Good food”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Possibly the best meal we had in SR was here. The staff was really good and food was near on faultless, while the presentation was even better. Its located in a junction in one of the avenues where there is a Cambodian restaurant on each corner. This place was great. Go there, you wont be disappointed.

“Very long wait time for meal even though restaurant practically empty”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Have just come back from lunch and felt disappointed enough to want to write a review about our experience. We arrived at the restaurant and were seated very swiftly. There was only one other table occupied and more tables became occupied about 10 minutes after we made our order. Despite this it took 45 minutes from ordering our meal to the first dish being presented and three of us had finished our meal by the time the 5 th member of our party got their plate of food. In fact my husband had to get up to try and find the waiting staff because we could hear the kitchen ringing the bell for 5 minutes to come and collect the food but there was no one around to do it! Other tables got served their food before all of our party had been served.The food when it arrived was really tasty and well presented but we were all so fed up when it did arrive that it didn't make up for all the wasted time sitting there waiting.There are so many other eating establishments that are better value in Siem Reap that quite frankly I wouldn't waste my time going there again

Thank you so much for your feedback,
We strongly apologize that your experience did not meet your expectation, due to 28th July 2013 is election day in Cambodia, thus 40% of our staffs have sent to their hometown in another provinces for voting and the remaining staffs also have to vote by rotation.
Otherwise, between 10minutes each of our outlets got almost full occupancies ( 2outlets ground floor & 2outlets first floor)

We hope you understand and accepted our apologies!

Respectfully
Management Team

“Good Food and an Attentive Staff”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed a nice meal with assorted starters and Mekong FIsh and Cashew Chicken. The beer was cold on a hot and humid day and the wait staff was excellent.

“Nice Khmer resturant with friendly staff”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were very pleased with our Khmer meal. The service was very efficient, and the staff were very polite. The food combinations met all of our expectations. The location is just off of the old market which allows for a nice atmosphere while enjoying our lunch.

“Lobster!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We saw lobster on the menu as we walked past the shop. Price was cheap for lobster, but when the dish came out as prawn! But giant prawns with claws. Also ordered fish amok.

Very nice local food in a very nicely decorated traditional restaurant in the middle of Pub Street. The staff were very polite and service is excellent.

Price is very reasonable for the quality and service level (almost like hotel restaurant)
