The restaurant serve delicious khmer cuisine and very reasonably price. It is a bit secluded but it is well worth it. I had the chicken amok and grilled squid both are very tasty.

Was staying at a local hotel and reviewed nearby restaurants. Tried lunch one day and chose loc lac. It was delicious so next day dropped back in. I asked them to spice up a chicken and noodle dish which they did. My partner had the fried vegetables which were equally delicious. 2 meals. 2 beers at a cost of $9.50. A bargain in anyone's language

We had some fantastic well flavoured local delights including frog legs with hot basil, fish with ginger and sweet potatatoes with caramel palm tree sugar . Best food we had so far in Siem Reap.

We loved this place! Happy we went wild and ordered lots. Literally every bite was joy with a beautiful flavor combination. Sadly wasted a meal on a silly, bland, thirsty ‘French’ nearby place the next day. Wasted a meal! Hope to come back as planning another visit to Siem Reap soon!

The food was fantastic, everything we ate was the best version of that dish that we had on our 9 day trip to Cambodia - the best fish amok, the best beef lac loc, sour morning glory soup, and an amazing banana dessert. We made a dinner reservation, but I don't think it was necessary, there was only one other table occupied when we arrived at 7:30. This might just be because that's early for most other tourists? This restaurant is a bit out of the way, our hotel had a difficult time locating it, but the restaurant was able to give our tuk tuk driver good directions when he called. You may want to arrange your tuk tuk driver for the ride home in advance, there's not a lot of action around the restaurant.

My one and only note, the bathroom could really use some attention - no toilet paper and there were many mosquitos. Maybe if a coil was placed there for evening service that would be great. I would honestly pay more for this amazing food for there to be a slightly better bathroom situation.

All in all, the best food we had on our trip to Cambodia at a great price!

Dear Noelle,

We really appreciated your trip to our country and on top of that our restaurant was one of your choice for tasting authentic Cambodian food, and on the other hand you gave the real view of what you experienced in Chongphov Khmer Restaurant. We'll take well care of toilet or happy room as your recommendation. Thank you so much and wish you a Merry Christmas in advance.
