“Relaxed lunch”
Review of LAVA Restaurant

LAVA Restaurant
Ranked #167 of 1,265 Restaurants in Siem Reap
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Japanese, Grill
Description: Lava is a sizzling concept specializing in the hot plate technique where food is served with a heated surface, gradually changing the flavors, doneness, texture and experience of the food while it is being eaten. Serving hot plates of Cambodian, Chinese and oriental Asian favorites, the restaurant also offers choices of innovative international fusion dishes. Located in the upper floor of an airy, alfresco Khmer wooden house, the 60-seater Lava overlooks the Siem Reap River and a lush green river promenade, making it a prime spot for lunch or dinner.

We popped in for a quick bite to eat and a drink. The service was great the staff were very friendly and attentive. Can recommend the beef lok lak and Tom yum soup. Portions sized just right and the beers cold. Relaxing watching life go along the river.

This is along a quiet part of the river in Siem Reap, and was nearby to where we stayed. The river is really a wonderful green space, and the restaurant has a lovely elevated terrace overlooking. The food was great, service attentive and we just had a lovely meal. Definitely recommend for an off-the-beaten path simple meal. We thought the prices were very reasonable even in Siem Reap.

We ate several times at Lava. It is near the Angkor Museum down the road by the riverside. The staff were smiling and attentive to our every need, and they remembered our favourites whenever we came in. The food was delicious, the salads and vegetables well presented. We sat up on the balcony under cooling fans to watch the locals as they relaxed in the park grounds by the river. Cross the bridge in the evening and watch the sunset from the other side.

Nearby to wonderful Jaya Riverside hotel this restaurant serves tasty food in quiet atmosphere. Air conditioning is only fans but in evening is adequate. About 10 minutes by Tuk Tuk from Old Market. Two dinners and 1 glass wine & water about 20$

This restaurant is off the beaten path so to speak. The food is absolutely delicious. I have had breakfast & dinner there & they have consistently been good. The staff is friendly. It is slightly higher priced but the food was worth it.
