What was once a great restaurant with fabulous authentic Cambodian food is now a shadow of its former self. The meals were poorly executed, the fish was less than fresh (as soon as it was placed on the table the smell wafted across the whole...restaurant), the peanut sauce had little or no peanuts in it (it was mostly coconut cream) and most of the dishes served to our large party were lacking in flavour or the main protein advertised. There was a complete lack of the fresh, vibrant flavors of Cambodian food. Staffing levels were completely inadequate for the number of people in the restaurant and service was slow. The young lady who took our orders was the only person who did a great job, managing a large group with skill and repeating back our orders to ensure she had gotten everything correct. The staff failed to check our meals were up to standard and wait times for food and drink for our party were simply ridiculous. This is despite the restaurant being almost empty. I had been told and was expecting some delays due to the size of our party (12 people) but service was of a poor standard. Wait staff were bringing out mains when the table still hadn't been cleared of the starter plates. We had to ask to have them removed so that the mains could be put down. No one was checking our table to see if we needed anything nor did anyone check to see if drinks were required. There simply was no attention to detail and it was obvious that the wait staff were untrained. All of this could be excused if the food was fabulous and the pricing was reasonable. It was not. Having frequented Siem Reap since it's inception I was truly disappointed to see whats its become. Double the prices for half the quality. I won't be crossing their door again.More

Siem Reap make consistently fantastic food. It’s a beautiful space, location is great and every time I’ve been, every guest goes on about how great their meals are. Last night though was just next level, it was my first time dining out with a plethora...of food allergies (soy, dairy and very recently diagnosed gluten- it’s a mess) we also had a vegan and 2 coeliacs at our table (allergies run in the family) and the server went out of her way to talk to the kitchen, came back with a list of things that could be done for me. I’ve been served by this gal before and she is just so lovely, nothing is too much trouble (even though behind the scenes we’re almost definitely a real pain in the ass). Just so she gets credit- she’s blonde and I’m almost certain she used to work at Aro Cafe. My family is a bit challenging- majority of them have never worked hospitality- and she was just so kind. It’s just really nice to go out and not come home feeling sick. Thank you! We will be back! And I won’t have to get the list made again!More

Mmmm tasty tasty! First time having Cambodian and we LOVED it. Not too sweet, and all dishes had their own unique tastes. Dined with five, made a last minute booking and got in within 30 minutes on a Friday night. Waiter was initially a bit...slow but very friendly. We ordered (incorrect names just descriptions) pork belly, green curry, chicken stir fry, chicken noodles, hot salad, beef hot curry, roti. Two cokes, one rum, two wines. Bill came to $200. Generous portions, and we all left extremely satisfied. Well worth the visit.More

I went with a friend on an Wednesday evening, before the carol service at the nearby St Mary of the Angels. As it was a Wednesday, I was surprised to be asked if I had a reservation. I didn't, but they found us two seats...at one of of a table for six and said that they would probably put two people at the other end. They did but it was fine as it was not closer than if they had been at a neighbouring table. We ordered three small plates to share - the battered prawns, the garlic prawns and the fried pork dumplings - and a roti each. My friend also had a latte. The service was good and the food was excellent. The place was attractive and the background music stayed in the background where it belongs (so you can hear your companion speak) but was very pleasant. I will definitely eat here again.More

The staff were energetic, welcoming, prompt and engaging. The food was unbelievably lovely! We ended up sharing 6 appetisers and one main course which was probably one course too much...

We joined another couple here for a Friday dinner. Great food. Not overly generous but very tasty and authentic. Try not to sit near the door as when people come and go a chilly breeze wafts through the restaurant. People frequently did not close the...door properly.More
