“What a find!"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2009

I just came back from a trip to fabulous Angkor, and one of the highlights of my trip was discovering this place. The food was outstanding. We had a wonderful time. We stumbled on the place by accident. It was like finding an entirely different world from the usual Siem Reap. If you have the time, I highly recommend you visit it, especially at night! Magical!.

“Excellent food and great ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2009

This somewhat hard to find restaurant is well worth looking for. It was recommended to us and took some effort to locate, but the food is excellent. Our pasta dishes were wonderful and so was the beef cooked in beer I ordered (my wife's fish dish was also very tasty). We sat on a semi-open wooden terrace in an old restored Khmer house, overlooking a beautiful pool and garden (alfresco seating by the pool is also available). The whole area was beautifully lit, making a very elegant and romantic setting. The bar attached to the restaurant is a also winner in its own right. We had some intriguing cocktails to choose from (French Kiss, anyone?) while we watched a classic Hollywood movie in black and white! We really enjoyed our dinner here and will definitely come back if we visit Siem Reap again. If you go, we recommend that you call to ask directions.
