A lovely quiet restaurant close to the bright lights of Pub Street, but a world away from all the tacky tourist brashness. Lovely contemporary decor, top notch service, and an excellent menu ranging from a 3 course Khmer menu for only $6 to imported lamb and steak mains from about $15. Great value wine list and cocktails too.

The banana blossom salad with chicken is really really good!

Near the night market, Old House is pretty quiet given that it's completely open to the street. Easy to find as it's directly across from the hospital.

Food was very tasty. Green mango salad with smoked (crunchy) fish,
pan-fried fish with tamarind sauceand Kmer beef stir fry. Everything was fresh. Service was fine.

It was a good choice. We went on the basis of reviews and were not disappointed.

We ate here twice in our recent stay in Siem Reap. I had the Amok chicken and the Lok Lak Beef. The Amok was great. The Lok Lak beef was a little different than is usually prepared (more like a stew than a salad) but still very tasty with tender beef.

Our first visit was for a late lunch and the restaurant was almost empty. Service was great. On our second visit for dinner it was very busy and the service suffered slightly but was not unacceptable by any means.

Reasonable prices (cheap by Western standards).

Both times we were seated near the front of the restaurant which opens onto a fairly busy road. I'd suggest sittng farther back in the restaurant (a litte less street noise) if you had a choice.

I had dinner at Old House. I ordered the green mango with smoked fish salad, barbecued pork tenderloin, braised bananas in coconut and a perfect martini.

The food was one of the best I have had in Siem Reap. The salad was tasty, pork tenderloin was tender and well barbecued and the bananas were delicious, costing only a buck. The martini was REALLY strong though so if you like alcohol, you'll enjoy it.

Atmosphere was nice and comfortable, with no mosquitoes.

Overall, I had a great dinner and would recommend it. Do make reservations for dinner on weekends as they get crowded.
