“Excellent, authentic Khmer food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

To coin an old english phrase 'No one was running amok in this place'. Staff were friendly and very attentive the whole time. Drinks and food were brought promptly and they showed the flexibility and willing to allow us to mix and match dishes to make up the 'Discovery Menu' for two to share. This was very good value for money and everything came at the right time (this is an achievement in itself for anywhere in Asia) and the restaurant was very busy. We enjoyed it so much we went back a second time before leaving wonderful Siem Reap. Thank you Amok.

“Best Amok in town”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I find out this restaurant offers me the best Amok Fish, Amok fish is special typical of Khmer food. Its good location is in French Quarter, near Pub Street. The table and stools are clean and decorative with good environment.
The cost is a little bit different from others but because its clean, good food and location and atmosphere, it is very reasonable.

“Excellent food with a very sophisticated atmosphere”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We're visited the Amok on the recommendation of our tour guide. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent. The presentation was visually appealing. The atmosphere was relaxing. The entire experience was top notch. It was not the cheapest place we have visited, but I believe the service and food compensated for the small additional cost of the food. I would recommend any of the Khmer Amok dishes.

“Very average”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

We were lured in by their advertising that they served the best amok in town. It was bland, Luke warm and grossly overpriced for what it was. Would not recommend to any visitor.
