The food was really nice with a large buffet choice of Cambodian and western dishes. The apsara dancing was exquisite. It was only slightly spoiled by inappropriate tourists standing in the aisles and then going on stage for photos with the dancers.

I paid $6 for a dinner and show. They make most of their money in drinks. We booked a day in advance and got seats near the front. Highly recommended or the show won't be worth it. The buffet started at 6:30 and dancing started at 7:30. They have a mix of Khmer and western dishes. I enjoyed the stuffed... More

We arrived just before 6:30pm, we were seated abt 10 seats from the front, really good spot. The girl at our hotel used to dance there, she made the recommendation, we had a great night, it gets quite stuffy even in semi open air, but this is dry season. Drink service was good, food was hit and miss, but the... More

Koulen is a tourist restaurant in Siam Reap which offers food and traditional dance entertainment. We went as part of a group of 20. Our table had been given to another group by mistake, which was not too surprising considering the general disorganisation prevailing. We were fortunate to find a table equally good with an unrestricted view of the stage.... More

We wanted a dinner and traditional Cambodian dance spectacle. The ones recommended on Lonely Planet were booked up, so we took a punt on the Koulen 2. The food was a buffet, but very poor quality. Our seats weren't near the stage, so it was difficult to see much. A very disappointing evening.

We went there for Dinner and Apsara dance. It costs $12. But there is nothing to enjoy. According to me it was a waste of time and money. For people not eating beef or Pork, there are very limited options. Even if someone eats, taste was not upto the mark. An absolute NO NO.

This restaurant was across the road from our hotel so thought we'd give it a try. You arrive at 6.30 & there is a large buffet. Quite a good selection & the food was tasty. There are rows & rows of tables & chairs & waiters for drink orders. At 7.30 the show starts. Lots of dancing typical of the... More

Our driver recommended this show and buffet and at $12 it was good value. We only ordered a bottle of water which was $2.50 so can't comment on drinks. I found enough things at the buffet to fill me but there was a lot I wouldn't eat because it wasn't on ice, such as the sushi, it was warm. The... More
