My wife and I went down to the night market area with the intention of going to another restaurant. (It was closed on Sundays) So we ended up going to this one as it looked like a decent place. It was much better than that. The service was polite and efficient for drinks and we decided to check TA to... More

I ate here because I wanted to go to the night market and it's right next door. When they saw me looking at the menu they rushed over and crowded me making me feel obligated to eat or drink something just for looking at the menu. But once I was seated they weren't interested at all and it took me... More

Goid food from a. fairly extensive menu. staff very friendly and speak Englush well. However, be aware that their definition of 'happy hour' does not mean 'two for one'. You only get a small discount iff your drink!

I stumbled on this place on route to another restaurant. Instead of venturing farther way, we decided to dine at this place. They had live music and a cover singer, which was nice and not so loud and obnoxious as some other places. Also this place is built against another market so you can peruse the souvenirs or get a...

Here for beer and snacks with my Fiancée and a right old time for ourselves. We ordered some small snacks and a few beers while waiting for a reservation at Genevieve's. After our food we came back for the craic, the singer was a great laugh, took requests and seems to have a head like a good Spotify playlist, a... More

Squid was gone in two bites and was tender but nothing special. Eggplant, eh. Served with soy sauce and nothing to it. Veggies were just that- mixed veggies in a sauce, probably I'd rate them highest considering cost. I forgot that paying more money for a meal doesn't make it any better than a hole-in-the-wall Cambodian restaurant. Those places have... More

I went to Island Bar two nights in a row. First, to have dinner. Second, to celebrate the NYE. I ordered Tom Yam Goong, I was expecting the taste could be better. But we like it over all that night. Nice music! So we decided to go back on the next day because the pub street was too busy. The... More

The Island Bar easily stands out in Angkor Night Market, with its enormous, cone-shaped, thatched roof. Located right next to Entrance A, this makes it a perfect meeting point. Waiting on shopping friends or family can become a relaxed pleasure, as you enjoy a cold beer, or work your way through their long list of great value cocktails, or fresh and fruity mocktails and smoothies. The combination of the spectacular bamboo roof, the open-air ambience, and the friendly atmosphere can certainly make it easy to forget you're in a market in the center of town. It feels more like a place you'd find on an exotic island beach. There's a good selection of bar-friendly food on the menu too. So there's a strong likelihood you'll find you're having so much fun you'll want to stick around at the Island Bar, well into the night.
