We ordered two curries with rice. My son straight away after one taste said "that's not right" he is a cook back home. I had already eaten a third of mine, we left both curries and rice. When we were asked why we didn't eat it, we replied, it's not good. They took our money and we left. Within 12... More

We stayed in another guesthouse in Street 258 but came here for dinner several times. The people working there are really friendly, but I especially want to say thank you to our amazing tuk tuk driver, Ton Ton, who we spent several days with and is one of the friendliest people you'll come across on your trip!

Stopped in here for a quick beer with the wife, stayed for about 3 hours! Great vibe, chilled music, friendly staff & great service. Wish we hadn't already eaten as the food going out looked good. As for the beers, cheapest we've had over the last week & all served with a smile. You have you look for it as... More

The fish amok wasn't bad....but the lasagne is, frankly, appalling. The food is generally OK, but nothing to write home about. The vibe is cool though, with great music and a pool table. It's a come-as-you-are kind of joint.

Staying in a hotel across the road which didn't have amazing food, this was a godsend. Had lunch and an evening meal here. Both were delicious. It's not a fancy place, but food, service and music were excellent. Pool table is free to have a game too.

We stayed at Same Same for 3 nights after spending 5 nights in their Siem Reap sister hotel. The family is extremely friendly and helpful and the food is really good! The reason for 4 stars is that the room itself could be improved upon, but it was clean and comfortable. Would stay again.

The staff were great and helped with anything they could. The bar/ restaurant downstairs made decent food and fantastic cocktails. Plus, free pool! The rooms were basic, loud and claustrophobic with the bathrooms leaving much to desire. However, the location was great.

Stayed in Kings Grand on same street, but had a few meals in Same Same. Very cheap, if your meal was $3,50 or more you got free soft drink or small beer,. Portion sizes were good. Staff friendly. Called in at night for night cap on our way back from the riverside.
