Located just off the popular pub street, the Cambodian BBQ is a brilliant experience for all those looking for an exciting meal. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to meats; with great options such as crocodile, ostrich and snake. Once you have chosen from a range of sets, you can get cooking your meats, veg and noodles on a built-in table BBQ, heated by coals underneath.
This is a really lovely experience, ideal for couples or groups of travellers looking for something different. The restaurant is a bit more expensive than others in the area but we felt the meal was worth the extra pennies. That being said, we are use to London prices so this restaurant is very cheap in comparison. The best BBQ set is the ‘special degustation’, offering 14 kinds of exciting meats, including Kangaroo, Shark, Snake, Ostrich and Crocodile. With this, you can get all you can eat vegetables, noodles and rice – all for $29.50 USD. Drinks are reasonable, with most soft drinks and beers starting at $2 and strong, delicious cocktails costing $4.50.
Book a table in advance as this restaurant can get busy. We enjoyed sitting outdoors but some people complain of local sellers; we said no thank you once and no-one else approached us but if you don’t like this then reserve a table for inside.
I don’t often talk too highly of restaurants but the staff were so friendly and the experience so memorable, I felt a whole blog was necessary! I urge anyone visiting Siem Reap to check out the Cambodian BBQ on Street No.8 – Pub Street.
Note: Cambodia BBQ did not ask us to review or promote their restaurant, we wished to share our fun and positive experience with our readers.
