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.

My favorite restaurant in Siem Reap. The food is fresh, delicious, and reasonably priced....especially for the Pub Street area.

It's centrally located, so easily accessible. The food is delicious and you get a good value for your money. Vegetarian choices are great and the... More

When we stopped here for a meal it was pretty much empty, I think this is due to its proximity to pub street where the average punter is looking for a burger or pizza and cheap booze. This works in your favour big time. The atmosphere is a complete juxtaposition to the "ibiza" mentality of the main street and provides... More

Lovely food, nice little local place tucked away in the maze of alleys off pub street. Friendly service, try the number 72 and 50 - both yum!

We go here every year, it's away from the hustle of Pub Street but close to everything. The food is amazing each time - we are never disappointed. And the owner is lovely and the service great.

Enjoyed the Amok as well as the Khmer fish salad which is very similar to the Thai salad here... price is not bad too. Quiet ambience.
