Nice restaurant, a bit expensive I think, but meals come full, it's still okay. They have many choice and if (in case) you don't want to eat Mexican food, they also have pizzas. Budget around 5$ to 10$.

Have visited Viva on several occasions over a number of cycling visits to Siem Reap. Typically, as a Westerner I enjoy visiting Viva when I am a little tired of traditional Cambodian dishes and I need a more Western fix.

My partner and I visited Viva Restaurant one evening during our time in Siem Reap. The restaurant was moderately full when we arrived, but we had to move from our first table inside due to too many bugs and flies. We moved outside, and it was fine from there on.

The food here was good, nothing to write home about, though. Other outdoor eateries in SR managed the bug situation well but somehow I was swatting at things my whole meal. If you want some western comfort food perhaps head here but it won't blow you away.

Came here twice on a 4 day visit to Siem Reap. Yummy and fresh food. I had apollo fries which really hit the spot and my partner had a beef sub with fries and then had to copy me the next time as it was so tasty. Cheap beer too

Good service and cheap margaritas. Several vegetarian options but I found the food pretty average...mostly full of fried onion and capsicum....I had trouble finding the beans and cheese. Portions were very generous though.

This is a great spot for a frozen margarita by the glass or by the jug. Good service and home made corn chips. Like an oasis on a hot day.

A surprisingly good Mexican in the head of Cambodia. Food was nothing special, but good if you are craving something other than Cambodian food! Good value, nice staff, good location.
