We had the amok at the amok restaurant and weren't disappointed. It was fantastic! The service was perfect - attentive but not smothering. Great location,

We visited Amok the evening after visiting a neighbouring restaurant ( Khmer House) We found the food at Amok just wasn't as good and was much more expensive. I had a chick n dish which consisted mainly of red and green peppers and a few pieces of chicken- my partner had a fish dish but again it was mostly green... More

We tried several restaurants during our stay in Siem Reap and this place is very over priced and was the ONLY one that left us disappointed. The food was average, the drinks order was delivered incorrectly, service was lacking and the beer (incorrect to the one ordered) was tepid! Amok delivered the only warm beer we had throughout all of... More

This restaurant advertises itself as serving the best amok in Siem Reap. Over the weeks that I have been in the town I have tried many amoks. This is certainly far from the best. The food came far too quickly to have been freshly prepared and was heavy and stodgy without the subtlety and flavour of a good amok. Disappointing!

We went to this restaurant because of its Lonely Planet recommendation and to try the best of Cambodian cuisine. I ordered the Amok degustation plate, and while it was beautifully presented, the food was sadly lacking. It was 5 small tasting dishes of fish, chicken, pork, beef & vegetarian Amok curry, yet each one strangely tasted the same & if... More

I stopped here for a quick mid-day lunch while in Siem Reap. The food was very good and so was the service (and reasonably priced). It was a good place to sit and people-watch, as they have seating right on the side walk facing the busy street.

Very good Khmer food, select the tray for two if you want to taste different kind of food. Banana flower salad is always so tasty especially for us who live permanently in Mekong region.

Amok used to be an OK place where they served a good and spicy fish amok. A regional speciality with fish from the Mekong. Had a five dish tasting dinner - cheap compared to Denmark - upper middle class in Cambodia. It was put on the menu as a tasting menu - but the food had no taste at all.... More

We came here because it was highly recommended both on TripAdvisor and lonely planet. But the true is that the service was poor, it took them 20 minutes to take our order, even thought the place was almost empty, the food was ok but not better than cheaper an more comfortable places on pub street. We ordered amok and lemongrass... More

Went back to this restaurant as we had had a good meal there a few years ago. This time most of the food was disappointing - the Amok curry in particular lacked the richness and flavours you expect.

Thank Richard C
