We visited this restaurant the first night we spent in Siem reap, nice restaurant tucked away down a quiet alley away from the chaos of pub street and surrounding areas. Friendly staff greeted us and we browsed the vast menu. First impressions were how cheap everything was, this being our first evening in Cambodia! We ordered a selection of dishes... More

The restaurant is located in a nice little road in pub street zone, the place is clean and quiet, nothing to do with pub road mess. We ate a fabulous traditional Khmer BBQ, with good quality 3 tipes of meat and a very good choice of vegetables, eggs, rice and noodles. Tofu, fresh pepper and hot sauce home made. We... More

So glad we found this restaurant, the food was excellent and yet so cheap. Extensive menu and lots of choice for vegetarians. The tofu Pad Thai was delicious as was the vegetable Khemer curry. 2 starters, 2 mains, 2 beers was less than 16 dollars. We visited 3 times and was fairly quiet, maybe because it was early. This place... More

I decided to try For Life Restaurant based on the reviews I had read in regard to their fish amok. I was not disappointed. The dish was a complex medley of flavors and was beautifully presented as well (and only $4.50). The banana blossum salad was also very good. Siem Reap was our first stop in Cambodia, and although I... More

This restaurant was recommended in my Rough Guide book, can only agree with this. A little bit hard to find, tucked away in a side alley. But quiet and a bit away from the crowds at the pub street. I had the Khmer dry fish soup and Lok Lak beef. Both dishes tasted good, I think the best food I... More
