“Definitely Worth a Visit - Best Meal in Siem Reap”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

You will not regret coming here for dinner! One of the best meals we had in Cambodia altogether hands down. Like other reviews, staff is friendly and professional, atmosphere is relaxing, restaurant is clean with modern décor, and food was amazing! Cocktail drinks were made correctly (western style) and were delicious. We ordered fresh spring rolls, mango salad, roasted chicken and Lok Lak and all were exceptional. This is the best fine dine restaurant in Siem Reap and the best part, it will cost you about $25 for all that I've listed above. Make reservations. And, it's walking distance to Pub Street too.

“Avoid being robbed”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I am not sure on where the other reviewers have been eating in the region and back at home given the fact that I truly do not understand how/why they have been rating this restaurant so highly

Yes there is a nice ambience in comparison with the usual local offer and yes the food is nicely presented (hence my 2 star rating) but it does end here.

I tried 5 different dishes. Paid 4 to 10 times what you would pay in other local decent/good restaurants in town and cannot surely say that the food tasted better or that I will remember anything of my dinner tomorrow.

Definetly not worth the money or the walk there. This is based on 3 weeks already spent in the region and 20 years around the word experiencing from street food to top 10 restaurants in the word

So if you do like being robbed please help yourself and enjoy the 10% service charge (Very unusual locally!!) on top of the food cost.

“incredible food and service”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

We visit this place based on Tripadvisor reviews and we felt good with that choice.
Our first impression is the great setting and decor.
We tried several dishes and all of them are excellent, both presentation and flavor.
The waiter is so attentive and helpful. He explained the food clearly and suggested wine matching with our course.
One high light is that the toilet is very clean with fresh flowers.
Highly recommended!!

“Highest Recommendation ”
Reviewed November 27, 2013 via mobile

Trip advisor has changed the way that hotels and restaurants do business and this place testifies as to this. The staff are exceptional delivering possibly the best table service we received in Cambodia. The meals were exceptional and the cocktails above standard. Our favourite meal of Siem Reap if not Cambodia. A definite must when visiting Siem Reap.
