"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

Big theatre, buffet with good selection of food

Variety of dance and acrobatic performances pieced together, including a small segment of cultural dance. Arrive early for better food quality. Many large tour group visitors.

Will not go into the whole spiel as the title "Corny and Gimmicky" dated 28 January 2017 nailed it on the head. There were two different show times but we were not aware of that. I recommend if you still want to see the show to show up right before the show and avoid the buffet meal. First show is... More

Visited this on the recommendation of our driver. It was worth it as a cultural experience. The buffet was average with a wide variety of Asian foods. The show was a bit long, 75 minutes and the seats uncomfortable. But the performances, dancers, acrobat were very good and it was an excellent way to learn about Cambodian culture.

We got scammed into spending my partner's birthday here. Many guides get a commission for bringing clients there. These tickets are not refundable. The food was really terrible, super commercial, poor quality and buffet style. Really bad! The show was quite poor as well...... DO NOT DO IT!

We almost ran out of the theater multiple times abandoning the performance to protect our hearing. Others have said it all -- kind of a mixed bag experience at best. Definitely a multi-cultural experience I found rather intriguing. Not sorry we went but I think I would steer others elsewhere. The young dancers and performers are very proud of their... More

The theatre and restaurant complex was developed in conjunction with the Chinese. The show itself was produced by the group that created the opening ceremony for the Beijing Olympics. One could rationally expect a professional production. I was disappointed. I purchased a ticket in the "A1" section. It was $49, including dinner. The buffet was mostly bland Chinese (in style...

Our experience was that it was like a tourist "babysitting" spot, where we are dropped off for a few hours to eat and watch a show. Questionable as to the authenticity of Cambodian culture on display (e.g. booming loudspeakers and gawdy lasers in the show). Also unsuccessfully delivered any sort of sensible narrative about the history of Cambodia, which it... More

The food was just so unaccepted. I would have to suggest my friends never come to this place. Overcharge what an average show and quality of meals.
