I wanted to see some Apsara dancing and since the Apsara Theatre and the Smile of Angkor had very poor reviews I thought this might suit me best. I was wrong. The food tried to be gourmet but didn't quite reach the level. The restaurant was outside full with mosquitos. The prices were outrageous in Cambodian standard and the quality and service really didn't justify the pricing. I.e. a small bottle of water costs almost 7 USD. The show itself was a dissapointment too, I am sorry to say. I was not resident of the hotel so I was seated in the very back of the dining area even though the restaurant wasn't full.

I recommend to skip this one and go to the Phare Cambodian Circus instead.

We did not stay at this hotel but came for dinner and the cultural dance show based on various reviews. Very lavish-looking hotel. Greeted warmly and shown through to a delightful garden setting for dinner and show. Very good service for drinks and dinner. Food is very good. Show was much as expected - very graceful girls, beautifully dressed, performing traditional dances. A touch of humour with a fish story allowing boys to show their skills as well as girls. There probably was a logistics problem as a bamboo xylophone performance went on and on. The evening is done very nicely - at a price. It was by far, the most expensive night we had in Cambodia. If you are interested in a traditional dance performance while in Siem Reap, would suggest one of the other venues as better value.

Loved the food, something entirely different. Service is outstanding along with a creative and beautifully presented menu. If you're in Siem Reap and are looking for a place to eat, you must visit here!

The Residence D 'Ankor is a fabulous teak villa. Their fine dining restaurant was the only one open. We choose their combination diner the Angor Wat tower ( as recommemded by the GM Carla) it was a tower of food with Khemer cuisine overtones and some good ingredients ( Mekobng lobster and blue crab ) .at the end I was still hungry and needed to order an extra main course of Australian lamb to fill the hole. It's not that the food is of high quality or well made , just a shortage of carbohydrates to fill you up ( hint here - the bread is well made and so fresh , so tuck in! )
The pumpkin cremr brûlée with coconut ice cream was delightful
So nothing wrong at all - other than it lacks something - wish I knew what it was !
