Visited this place after checking it out on trip advisor. We were after some tasty, local food and that's what we got! Value for money! I got the banana leaf salad, fried spring roles and fish amok, they were all awesome! Staff was a bit hasty to get us in and sitting down but was no worries. Food was well... More

I was reluctant because it was so close to the market/pub street but the food was authentic and very tasty!

I stopped in for dinner to try their Khmer curry and was pleasantly surprised that they had a daily special that includes banana chips, sliced watermelon dessert (and rice) with all meals. Plus if you check-in with TripAdvisor they give you a free fruit shake. Three course cooking classes with a market visit, are held daily at 10:00am and 1:30pm... More

Terrible for expats and locals. I can think of a dozen places in Siem Reap that have better Beef Loklak at 2 dollars. But I can definitely understand why tourists give them 5 stars. Enjoy.

We order fish amok , beef lok lak , stir fry morning glory and finish it without remembering to take photo of it as it is some tasty. Frozen margarita at US1 only and free banana chips. Good food!

If you travel on a budget, but you still want to experience an awesome local Cuisine, this is the place to go to. I've been here three times in seven days and tried all different salads they offer and three times the fresh spring rolls. All the time the food was amazing and pretty cheap. As a bonus you get...

Such a great surprise this time: Cambodian Traditional Chef restaurant definitely delivered against our expectations! The food is very fresh, they know how to delicately enhance the flavours of their dishes, service is at a reasonnable pace (some other... More

I have lived in Phnom Penh for over two years and travelling in and out for two years before that. Spent Khmer New Year 2017 in Siem Reap and went to this restaurant for dinner with family, and have to say the traditional Khmer food is the best that I have ever experienced in Cambodia. Even my Khmer wife agrees... More
