Sala Bai Restaurant School

Sala Baï Hotel & Restaurant School was founded in 2002 by the French NGO Agir pour le Cambodge. The school entirely and exclusively meant for young Cambodians coming from underprivileged families. In 2015, more than 1300 young Cambodians, with a 70% priority to girls, have been trained. They have all found a job within 1 month after their one-year training. A few years later, their average salary goes from $250 to $350 which enables them to reach the emerging Cambodian middle-class. The vocational training taught at Sala Baï is definitely the fastest and most efficient way of fighting poverty and human trafficking. But without your support, nothing would be possible. By coming to our training restaurant, you already make a great difference, with the pleasure to enjoy high-quality food.

Delicious meal served promptly by well trained staff for 14 USD per person. The fish amok was terrific as the Turkey and sweet potatoes. Desserts are amazing.
The end of Year School trip is planned for next July and for now they have 26 students going ( out of 120). It costs approx. 60 USD per student so any donation is welcome!
Make a good action and go there for a meal...or even 2 as they served breakfast as well!

The food is excellent but the best bit is what it provides to the community. They train poor young people to cook and serve to enable them to work within the catering/hospitality sector to support their families. The context behind the programme is very humbling....MoreThank you so much for your kind words. Education & Community support are so important in Cambodia & New Hope does it's best to support in both these ares.

Hands down this place serves some of the best modern Khmer cuisine in SR!
I made a reservation two weeks before and changed it twice to add more people to my party. The receptionist was so extremely nice and accommodated my requests! Thank you so much, Samhai! You are awesome!
Food is top notch! I particularly enjoyed the salad and the fish (entree 1). Creative and well done! I also liked the duck, tender and flavorful!
The stuff and chef are so extremely nice. They came to thank us for dining at the restaurant and gave us macaroons as gifts. Well thought! Thank you! We brought the macaroons for family and friends to sample; everyone loved it!
Bill came to be $120 for three sampling menu, three mixed drinks, and tip. Expensive in Cambodia but I personally think it is worth the experience! Highly recommend! It is one of its kind in Cambodia! Don’t miss it :)

Reviewed By Bezi - London, United Kingdom

This place is the other side of the river from the main drag. We walked there and it took a bit longer than expected and Chocolate street has no lighting so didn't look the most inviting!
You really need to book this place as it is out of the way and it would be a pain to get here and be turned away. We had a table with a view of the entrance and loads of people were getting turned away.
Haven is another restaurant with a training program for under privileged people (bit of a theme in Cambodia) but the food is very good and the tables outside are really nice. Each table has a big old stand up fan to keep you cool which is awesome when is is hot (which it was).
Prices seemed reasonable and the nicest bit is the garden Seating, you don't want to sit inside.

Le Bel Air

Le Bel Air' is a bistronomical restaurant that celebrates the two cultures its owners hold dear. The exterior pays tribute to the wonderful country that is Cambodia. The many terraces and the luscious garden remind the visitor of the gorgeous and infinitely diverse local flora. The air-conditioned interior gives a playful nod to our friendly Brussels brasseries, with a relaxed and delightful mood. Xavier and his kitchen staff prove that the Belgian and Franco-Belgian cuisine is a world worth discovering, a culinary experience that will erase all bad lunchroom memories. Xavier's wife Johane and their associate Thibaut work the floor to take care of your every need, giving advice and telling you all about our dishes and beverages. These include a large range of Belgian beers that are nowhere else to be found in Cambodia, nectars from the gods that will dazzle the layman and fill the connoisseur with homesickness. At 'Le Bel Air - A Belgian Atmosphere' we're looking forward to sharing our cosy and cheerful ambiance with you. Join us for an evening that's out of the ordinary.

Outstanding is not a word I used often. Le Bel Air is a quality restrarant that could easily fit into the urban foodie worlds of Sydney, Singapore, Seattle or The Haig. The modern clean lines of this recently purpose built establishment transports you from the heat, dust and chaos of Siem Reap to fine dining.
I ordered a Sth African Sauvignon Blanc to start that was serve with complimentary marinated olives and crusty bread (a nice touch) from the specials board I selected Crabmeat dumplings served in a light curry sauce. My main was a beautifully cooked Dory with to die for sauce, fresh vegetables, Rosti potatoes and some salad. See the attached photos. Staff and the management filtered through the restaurant during the night asking the guests if everything was good? Tonight it was superb! I hope I get a chance to go back for their mussels.

Falafels, teas and cakes

Reviewed By LCLB24 - Galway, Ireland

We were greeted by the owner who was very friendly and recommended dishes for us! For starters we went with the Baba Gounjsh which was a great start to a great meal! We had the Falafel and Ask Mo which were both super tasty - I would recommend both of these! We couldn’t resist getting desert with the amazing choice on the menu - the cashew brownie and banana cake are also superb! This is a must visit in Siem Reap - no faults whatsoever with this restaurant. I would happily eat here everyday!
