This seems to be a place tours take their tourists to for Khmer food and it's good! The food is well presented, tasty and the service is on point. We enjoyed all courses. I certainly would not go out of my way but if you get taken there you will be OK.

Service is good, pleasant ambience. Feel that the food can be better to compliment the presentation and price. Pricing is towards the higher end, I was expecting something more " Khmer cuisine " instead of ordinary.

We were recommended to dine at Madame Butterfly by our tuk-tuk driver, Mr Thorn from the Angkor Palace Resort & Spa, and thanks to him, we ended up dining at this restaurant almost every day throughout our 8-day stay in Siem Reap. We loved the menu that was filled with local Cambodian dishes that whetted our appetite every single time... More

We came here with as part of our tour company, which means the restaurant primarily caters to tourists; however, we found the food and environment to be quite nice. Since this was the third place we ate a set menu lunch, we were a little bored of the food, but that wasn't the restaurant's fault. We came at a time... More

The food was just ok from an Asians perspective. Enjoyed the desert. Ambiance and service was good. Also not veg friendly.

Dinner at the Madame Butterfly was included in our tour of Siem Reap/Angkor Wat, so our driver dropped us off there one evening. Right at the outset, we thought the decor a little flashy, but that was just the beginning. There was a fixed menu, which was okay, but the Khmer food was not nearly as good, or as well... More

If you are western, then you might like it, but if you are Asian, don't bother. The taste of the food is western standards. But for asians, it is awful. If you are looking for a local taste, look elsewhere. It even says in the menu, "Western Standards"

Just off the main road, this restaurant is popular with tourists seated at large tables although we ate as a couple on our own table. Food is similar to Thai in the UK. Wonderfully attentive service, food beautifully presented and fragrant. We opted to eat a la carte, instead of having the set menu as we wanted to choose our... More
