“Delectable!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

We visited The Sun on our last evening in Siem Reap, and it was an absolutely fantastic meal. I had the chicken burger - which sounds boring. But, they took a chicken burger and made it into something absolutely delicious. I think it had a mango chutney and some other type of yummy flavor-infused mayo. I don't exactly recall, all that I know is that it was the best piece of chicken I've had in Cambodia (and I've been here for 15 months). Also, I felt that for the quality of food received, the price was good.

“Refresh, regroup”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

We found The Sun a pleasant spot to stop for a break during the heat of the day. Over a cool watermelon, mint and lime drink you can tune into the free and good wifi to catch up or send a few emails, enjoy some people watching or just be. Light meals were tasty and I quite liked the coffee too. The team working at The Sun were also very friendly and attentive. A nice place.

“Good corner to eat, drink,relax and watch.”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

After walking for hours in the heat it was nice to relax in a comfy chair, under a fan and be attended to immediately with a nice cold beer and watch the world go by.
Staff are smiling and friendly, food is cheap and delicious.
Give it a try, life is good and uncomplicated in this part of the world.

“Not cultural, but delicious!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

Great prices, fantastic food, great setting, good service. Absolutely no complaints. Beef Tendrloin steak was done medium to order on a charcoal grill which is very hard to find in North America. The fact that it cost $6.50 was amazing. Can't go wrong here if looking for a change from Cambodian food.

Passion fruit ice cream is perfect - SO flavourful.

“Awesome food, setting, people and service”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Have been here twice this week and will definitely go back.

The menu does have more expensive western items, but you can still eat for $5.

Have had the felafel burger and the Khmer Beef curry, both delicious.

The staff speak great English and are so friendly.

Cocktails are more expensive than ($3-6), but are the best! Passionfruit mojito's are amazing.
