Traditional Cambodian Food in Siem Reap
Come inside and rest your feet for a bit. We know you must be tired from your temple exploration. Luckily, you’ve found one of the best Angkor restaurants.
Welcome to our wooden house, Sala Russey.
Continue your Angkor adventure through the flavors of our authentic Cambodian recipes. Or, opt for something a bit more familiar. We serve up classic Western dishes, healthy vegetarian meals, and halal options.
Every day we bring the highest quality ingredients from Siem Reap into the Angkor Wat Park to make sure you’ll enjoy your food. The big question is where do you want to sit?
Follow the wooden bridge over a water lily pond to head inside Sala Russey. There you can cool off from the tropical Cambodian heat in our comfortable A/C seating. While waiting for your meal, spend some time checking out the original art pieces hanging about.
Or, perhaps you prefer feeling the fresh Angkor breeze gently rolling across your skin. Kick back, relax, and feel at peace in our green bamboo garden. The air is perfumed by the huge variety of flowers and other vegetation growing around our wooden house.

Only the best
Sala Russey is much more than a good-looking restaurant. We spent a great deal of time finding local markets that could provide us with fresh daily produce for our restaurant in Siem Reap. We did this to craft the highest quality Cambodian dishes for you and to also cycle money through our less-fortunate local communities.

Ancient Cambodian recipes to match the ancient temples
Escape from the tropical heat with comfortable A/C seating
Cambodian breakfasts are one of the most important meals of the day. They’re much more hearty than the bowl of cereal you’re probably used to because of the country’s farming traditions. Most Cambodian breakfast dishes will have some type of meat plus veggies and a serving of rice or noodles.
For now, Cambodian street food is overshadowed by those of its neighbors, Thailand and Vietnam. But, Cambodia’s street food recognition is growing every day thanks to the flocks of tourists visiting the Kingdom.
Angkor is the heart of Cambodia and holds many ancient structures and mysteries. It’s also the main reason why many people visit the Kingdom of Wonder. Come and discover our ancient temples with fun and useful facts. Here are five things that you need to know about Angkor Wat.
