The set menu was just OK. the food was mediocre. the service was good. but way to many people. the only redeeming quality was the gardens and the setting around the restaurant.

Evening worthwhile only for the Aspara story show. We ha never seen anything like it and were very pleased to have the experience. Rest was mediocre. Food not so good, long tables with people fighting for photos. Etc. Well show was worth it.

I went to see the apsara dance show offered at Crystal Angkor during a stay in Siem Reap. I really enjoyed the dancing as I had never seen anything quite like it. The food, while plentiful, was just okay. Overall, I felt the experience was...really about seeing the show and less about the food, so I would recommend going. It might be worth checking reviews to see if there is a place with high food ratings and also a great show. Overall, I felt this was worth doing.More

This place had traditional dancing on stage following your dinner. We had a fabulous multicourse traditional Khmer meal which was deliciouse all the way. The dance was interesting! Aspara dance being traditional dance that tells a story. It was fascinating to watch the grace and...balance but still cant figure out how they band their fingers back....years of training.More

A lovely venue offering a delicious set menu, where you can experience some authentic Khmer cuisine, whilst appreciating the Apsara dance show on offer (the duration is approximately 1 hour, and includes 5 parts of Apsara dance with different symbolic meanings). Amazing & colourful costumes...on display, with beautiful dances being performed by very talented young folk. A thoroughly enjoyable culture experience, without a doubt.More

Going to see traditional Khmer dances, along with dinner, was an optional activity during our tour of Siem Reap – and, oh, how I wish I had opted NOT to go. There was nothing about the experience that was enjoyable. Imagine the largest, tackiest catering...hall you’ve been to, and you’ll get an idea of Crystal Angkor. As an aside, a few in our group lived in or had lived in the New York area and referred to Crystal Angkor as “Cambodia’s Answer to Leonard’s of Great Neck,” a rather infamous catering hall on Long Island, known for its tacky décor and dreadful food. First of all, groups are herded into various large, rather plain rooms with long tables set up for each of the tour groups. The Crystal Angkor has several types of performances, including shadow puppets and traditional Khmer dances, so groups head into the various catering halls for the entertainment that they had reserved. There is a set menu, and I’m not sure why we were served Western foods, while other tables had Cambodian meals. Perhaps, our guide, for some unknown reason, thought we wanted a change of pace. I can’t speak to the Cambodian meal, but the Western one was virtually inedible. I took a bite of each course and pushed my plate away. The textures were mushy or hard as a rock (the mashed potatoes could have been used as mortar for brick-laying); the flavors were horrible; and the service was chaotic (most probably because the small staff had to serve everyone between the various dance performance). Thank goodness that there was a grocery store near our hotel that was open late so that I could get a snack later. The dance performers were just “going through the motions,” literally and figuratively. It was as though they didn’t want to be at the Crystal Angkor Restaurant as much as I didn’t want to be there. In conclusion, don’t waste your time or money to go to the Crystal Angkor RestaurantMore

I'm sorry but I can't tell you. We were part of a tour group, the meal was pre-paid and we didn't see a menu to look at prices. The food was distinctly average; I would suggest asking around when you are in Seam Reap (hotel... More
