“Best meal we had in Siem Reap”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

They specialize in Amok cuisine. I had a sampler with four meats and one vegetable, each in banana leaf for about eight dollars. It was really unique and delicious. My wife had the sweet and sour chicken and it was very good also. It is slightly higher than other Siem Reap restaurants, but we felt it was worth it.

“Fresh, authentic and well presented food”
Reviewed February 6, 2014 via mobile

Second visit this holiday, with different friends and they were very happy I recommended it.
Brilliant place if you want to taste the local food
Try the dishes where you get each of the meats and fish - the Amok specials
The BBQ skewers are also amazing
I love the bright colored napkins and table cloths here

“Great Food”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Called here one lunchtime for a snack. We each had pumpkin soup and then shared banana flower salad. They tasted delicious and were beautifully presented. There was a good atmosphere and also, very good service.

The prices were a little higher than other restaurants we have visited in Siem Reap, but worth it.

Definitely recommend.

“Tasty Cambodian food”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Funny enough "Amok" is their speciality which could be tried in a range of meat, veg, fish and seafood options. Delicious! Nicely presented in banana leaf dishes.lots of other dishes to try and whilst I understand there are lots of cheaper restaurants in Siem Reap to find, we stumbled upon this and enjoyed our meal which we still felt was good value at £23 for 2 courses incl drinks. Kitchen and staff looked well turned out.

“Our First Amok @ Amok”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Amok was the first restaurant we tried in Siem Reap and we weren't disappointed. Had to sample the famous Cambodian Amok curry (fish) which was lovely and sweet and not mild at all. We also shared a tasting plate to sample some of the local cuisine - really enjoyed the Papaya salad.

Very nice location in pub street alley, with upstairs and downstairs seating options. Good value for money about $35-40 UD for 2 adults and 2 kids.
