“Beautiful Khmer Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We experienced a little trouble finding anyone who knew of the restaurant. It was made easier after discovering it was part of the Palm & Pool Villas. Our family of four were the only patrons but the food still took quite a while to arrive.

Kids loved walking around the grass and pool in the dark spotting frogs!

The Lok Lak and Khmer Fried Rice was the highlight. Very very tasty and a serene locale. We'll be back.

“Simply delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

Excellent service, delicious food and amazing ambiance. Makan Makan is a gem of a restaurant, located in the very lovely Pool & Palm resort. They serve a wonderful range of Khmer (halal) food at very affordable prices.
You can also chill or swim in the pool. Just the best place to hangout on a hot day with friends.

“Delicious Khmer food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Friendly staff,cosy place and the most important is the food served is super delicious. If you wanted to try local/Khmer food you should come here. The place is clean and its halal kitchen(pork-free).You can relax and chill by the pool while waiting for the food. By paying USD 6 you can swim plus 1 meal and 1 drink. Believe me you will not regret it.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We came here the first day of our 23 days of Cambodia, and it seemed to be not our last... Makan Makan offers a perfect range of Khmer food and Western food for very decent prices!

Ofcourse the relaxing and wonderfull resort makes this place one of the best in Siem Reap (if not whole Cambodia). The staff and owner welcomed us like we were their guests! Special thanks to Tai and his brother!!
