Old House Restaurant Siem Reap Salad

Review: Old House Restaurant, Siem Reap

While I generally enjoy street food and road side cafés,  this place was a nice change.  The decor was tasteful, furniture was wooden – not your standard plastic garden chairs that seem to be all over Cambodia.

But most importantly, the food was great!  My favorites were the starters: fried pork spring rolls, banana blossom salad with chicken, vegetables and fresh herbs and an amazingly fragrant pomelo salad with smoked fish, herbs and vegetables in a lightly spicy red dressing.

Our starters at Old House Restaurant: Amazingly fragrant salads.

The verdict: This place is definitely wort a visit when in Siem Reap, the food was delicious and it was a welcome change from street food and plastic chairs. I highly recommend booking ahead, the place was packed when we went.
