Restaurants and Dining
Dining out in Siem Reap for a comparatively small town, Siem Reap offers an amazing range of cuisines and dining venues. The emphasis is, of course, on Khmer food, which can be found at restaurants across town, but European and other Asian cuisines are also well represented, including Italian, Thai, German, Vietnamese, Indian, Chinese, Korean, Japanese and, of course, French. Given Cambodia's long relationship with France and France's gastronomic traditions, it is no surprise some of the town’s finest venues offer French cuisine. Also of interest to the gastronome, some finer venues are offering Khmer fusion and contemporary cuisines quite unique to Cambodia. Restaurants are scattered across the town but none is more than a 10-minute walking away. Many restaurants, including several specializing in Khmer food, are concentrated in the Old market area, especially around ‘Pub Street.’ Listings in dark blue offer a bar/nightlife venue in addition to being a restaurant. Listings in maroon also offer a traditional performances. Listings in maroon offer traditional performance. See Traditional Performance in Sightseeing and Activities for more details.

Bars and Nightlife
Siem Reap’s nightlife stretches to near dawn these days with Pub Street coming to life around dusk and the last bars and clubs in town closing as late as 4:00AM. Nightlife venues are scattered across the town but many of the most popular bars and pubs are clustered in the Old Market area, especially along and around “Pub Street”. The bars in the area offer some great early evening happy hour deals and the street also has some of the latest running bars in town. But the action is not limited to Pub Street. Less crowded, less touristy, more individual places can be found in the Wat Bo and Old Market areas, along the river road and on Sivutha Blvd. And for something completely different, check out one of the Cambodian discos or clubs such as Zone One and Sok San - DJs, dancing and a unique and varied selection of international and local music. The clubs get going around 10:00PM and close by 2:00 or 3:00AM.
