We ate at this lovely restaurant on three occasions during this, our fifth visit to Siem Reap in six years. Without a doubt they serve the best meals we've ever had in Cambodia. The menu is interesting and innovative serving Khmer and French dishes that come from the kitchen stunningly displayed. We felt almost guilty putting a fork, or spoon into the creations but the guilt was totally assuaged when we took the first bite. The flavors were superb. Cassia is on a quiet street and it is nice to be away from the hustle and bustle of the Pub Street area and to sit down to a relaxed meal in a beautiful setting. We came here both as a couple and then with friends and each time we ate here the food was outstanding. The prices are very reasonable for this caliber restaurant. Our dinner began with an amuse bouche of cold soup - a mouthful of wonderful flavors and we both were absolutely awed by our appetizer of tartare de loup de mer. The carrot and coconut soup was a blend of the most subtle tastes. The whole dinner was wonderful and what ever you do make sure that you have room for the chocolate dessert. Not to feel too conscience-stricken about indulging ourselves, we shared this totally divine decadence, but could happily have had one each. Cassia is run by Laurant Baldini, the chef, and his wife Danielle who took over the space previously occupied by L'Escale. The couple are a dynamite duo who are very experienced in the restaurant business. She is Cambodian-born, grew up in France, where she met her Italian-French husband and they have been living in Cambodia for the last five years where they bring all the wonderful characteristics of their different backgrounds to this new venture. Ingredients are nearly all locally sourced, all the seafood and most of the meat which Laurent prepares himself. The vegetables and fruit come from local farmers and the imported items are the things like cheese and capers. The dishes are full of Cambodian flavors and spices and you won't be disappointed.
