We were expecting far more from this place.
The menu was extremely limited in term of choice.
The quality of the food was ok but once again you expect more for an hotel who was once under the Pansea chain and is now under new management.
To conclude this review i would not recommend this restaurant there are many better options in town if you want good choices or fine dining.
Excellent service.

This restaurant is right inside the Belmond Hotel "Residence d'Angkor" and this is convenient for lodgers... but really, Circle is not the tastiest option in Siem Reap. The indoor seating is quiet but the outdoor tables do have road noise. The food is pricey and somewhat dull for what you get -- although the bread was fresh-baked and hot, my dinner was served cold, and we were not asked after it was served. Ironically the manager of the hotel was (loudly) visiting with other tables at the restaurant, but completely ignored us although he walked past. One gets the impression that certain people matter more than others. It is clear there are better food options in town than here.

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!
