Overview

"Smile of Angkor" is the first grand Epic daily show that revives the Angkor dynasty in all aspects. It's the most worth view show in Cambodia. From foundation to prosperity, tale to folk customs, past to present, Smile of Angkor expresses the original culture with the highest technology It's a splendid performance directed by the experts of the Cambodia Culture and Fine Arts Ministry and the director team of the Closing Ceremony of 2008 Olympic Games. It's a legendary show that revives all the myths from the reliefs of Angkor Temples with our grand stage and the brightest stars. There is a buffet at the venue to allow you to dinner before the show. A small and cosy restaurant is dedicated to the individual visitors (non-group) but be aware that it s a huge buffet for Asian group so don't expect for food and Western standard level. But you will be able to see all the nationalities of Asia and to taste differents foods : Khmers, Vietnamese, Korean... Be aware that during the high season there should have so queue for the bbq which know a big success. During the show you can not take photos or videos. We wish to welcome you

For $40-50 the buffet food was not good at all. I love the street food around town, great flavor and great price but this buffet was terrible. People pushing and shoving just to get more to eat. Then the show was well below average. Stage...More

Maybe it is not raely fair - but we did not even wait for the show. And we had reasons for that. We arrived by TukTuk and were welcomed by a security guard (at least we thought that this was his function) with a grim...More

Skip the dinner, but see the show. Don't expect world class, or you will be disappointed. I learned a few things about Cambodia, and I was entertained.

The food was terrible and the show was lackluster. I would be hard-pressed to express just how bad the food was without being mean. The show had some good talented performers involved, but the overall show was laughable. Literally. I laughed out loud a few...More
