What are the best restaurants to eat in Siem Reap? Well after 7 months I have certainly tried some great food in this city, I have also had some god awful stuff. I’ve therefore decided to list the best restaurants in Siem Reap into one very bite sized article!
What is the best burger in Siem Reap?
In the old days it would have been Jungle Burger, now its Big Boys. Located just next to Hard Rock cafe, HUGE burgers and cocktails for $1.50. I cannot recommend Big Boy Burger Siem Reap more!

Best pies in Siem Reap
Funky Flashpackers do a pie and a pint for $3.50, and they are real English pies made by a real Englishman. Again to give Jungle Burger their credit they come a very close second!

Best Thai Food in Siem Reap
Sambo’s are very good, but the Thai Street Food Truck is by far the best, and one of the best things about it is they tend to move it around every now and again! Usually situated opposite the Paris Bakery, the food is fresh and made by Thai people at least!

Best roast beef in Siem Reap
Keng Kor Dot is located right by the river and is a bit of a legendary place, starting from very little and now being a bit of an institution. When you arrive there is a literally a whole cow to greet you and a guy BBQing up a storm. Perfectly cooked and amazingly not overdone.
Best street food in Siem Reap
60 meter street is the place that serves literally every kind of Khmer food you could ever wish for. This includes bugs, lots and lots of bugs. It is worth coming here just to soak up the atmosphere and see how tej locals like to chill.
Best Bar in Siem Reap
This is a bit of a horses for courses one, but for me it is Star Bar. Star Bar have great staff, wonderful owners and very cool events every night, such as quiz nights, karaoke and a great happy hour. You cannot argue with a pint, chips and a wager for $2.50.
And that is my bite sized (no pun intended) review on the best restaurants in Siem Reap, of course things can and do change, but right now, this rings true.
