“Old World Charm”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

Beautiful settings, great atmosphere, the meals were very tasty, drinks very cold.
The staff again were more than helpful & polite.
Relaxing and good quality, very welcoming after a good walk around the area.
Tuk-Tuk's very close by, so not to far to go if wanting to go see more sights , or just return to you hotel

“Good food, pricey coffee”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Had a beef burger for lunch at The Sun and very much enjoyed it. The food had a home-made feel to it which was great. The price was competitive given the location, ambiance and food quality. The coffee price was a bit on the upper side given the small size of their servings. The location was excellent. All in all a good restaurant to go to...especially if you're missing a home-cooked meal.

“Nice Pub Street Hangout”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Great people watching at the Sun, particularly on the second floor with a ringside view of the action on Pub Street.

Had the fish and chips. Fish was over-battered, but certainly the meal was edible. One of the best locations on Pub Street makes The Sun worth checking out. I'd recommend going there for drinks. Food's OK. Menu's typical of the area: Khmer, Italian, and their stab at American. But a pleasant atmosphere both upstairs and down makes this a recommended stop some night on Pub Street.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

The service wasn't good at all, especially not on Asian scale. The staff was just too busy focusing on their own things and one had to ask for many things several times (menu, ashtray etc.). Also getting the bill took too long and the service wasn't too friendly either.

We ordered burgers (classic beef and veggie burger), which were tasty but small and it left us hungry.

There are better places in Siem Reap, even in the same touristy area.

“Not very good!”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

Had some tapas and drinks i the early evening. The portions were all tasteless and overpriced for their tapas size. Beer was also $1 more expensive than all other restaurants around.
