Angkor draught beer is .75 cents..... need I say more?? Oh.. apart from the friendly staff with ready smiles, you will find very decent food served in a lively, bright atmosphere on a great people watching corner of Pub Street. Oh.... and they have fried banana split... which is amazing! Definitely worth a try when you are here in Siem... More

Had a great chimichanga and some margaritas. Probably too much of the latter. Would definitely go again for the mango margaritas. Service was excellent. Staff was very attentive. Only downside was perhaps it was too noisy. But then again one does not go to a Mexican restaurant for quiet dinners.

We ate there a couple of times during our week stay and really enjoyed the location and frozen margaritas! The food is ok but then again you can only do so much with rice, beans and cheese. The staff are pretty attentive and usually come around frequently to check up on you. During our visits we did notice some foreigners... More

Located on a corner opposite Pub Street, viva offers an extensive menu with a Mexican trait though it does offer other types of food. Great to stop here and watch the world go by. We both had breakfast here on our first morning which was $4 per set and included a drink so not badly priced.

This was the back up for a touch of western food in Cambodia. Great food, at awesome prices. A nice cold beer on a stinking hot day and margaritas to die for. Not once were we disappointed by our choice of food.

During a rainy storm, we hibernated in Viva and warmed ourselves up on hot chocolate. The view was nice (minus the rain) to watch everything going on around us. Although we didn't stay for food the menu had a good selection of Mexican and Asian food. The drinks list also has a good selection from hot to cold drinks and... More

The food here is great and the vibe is fun and chilled out. Perfect location just across the road from old market. The nachos are delicious and so cheap and fun to share with fellow travelers. The frozen margaritas are a steal at $1.50 and are perfect to cool down after a day climbing thru temple ruins. The staff are... More

When I spotted this lovely Mexican joint the night prior, I was excited at the thought of flavorful guacamole, sizzling fajitas, and that fluffy Mexican rice we all know so well. My friend and I made plans for dinner right then and there. The next day I dreamed of the aforementioned food while riding around for 8 hours in our... More

Get the California burrito, absolutely awesome. Nice nachos for starter too. Needed my Mexican fix and it didn't let me down. Wine was average but I was more interested in the food! We did see a rat at one point, but keep seeing them everywhere in this town
