This restaurant out of the crazies of Siem Reap city center is super. We had a lovely romantic dinner there aided with sweet staff and outdoor green atmosphere. We got to try some of the typical khmer food staples and it was all delicious.

Very tasty food. Attentive and friendly staff. Nice atmosphere.
The only thing I found a little strange was 90% of the items on the menu marked as 'vegan or vegetarian' had chicken in it.

Thanks for your kind review.

We have 6 items on the menu with a V next to them which means we can do a vegan or vegetarian version of this dish,

Fresh spring rolls - already vegetarian
Fish Amok - can make Vegetable Amok as an alternative.
Chicken currry - can do vegetable curry and/or use fresh or pan-fried tofu.
Noodles with pork - can do noodles with vegetables or use fresh or pan-fried tofu.
Chicken quesadilla - can do vegetable quesadilla.
Chicken pasta - can make vegetable pasta.

So, we’re not quite sure how you came to the conclusion that 90% of the veg. items had chicken in them. Anyway, We hope that clears things up.

We are also happy to accommodate special requests if possible, e.g. spicy vegetable soup or variations on the above. If you ask, we can often do it or at least a close version.
Thanks again for your feedback.

We were a group of 10 old schoolmates on a short Seam Reap weekend getaway. Genevieve's was in our list of restaurants to consider for quality local Khmer cuisine; and our expectations were exceeded! As you enter, the place has a nice vibe to it. They greet you warmly and usher you to the table > in our instance, were quick in putting together a group of tables (usually for 4) to accommodate us. Its a hot afternoon, so the drinks are looked into immediately, whilst we peruse the menu (tip : go for the coconut shake, they do it amazingly refreshing).
The dishes are chosen with their guidance and the food is really yummy; none of the dishes disappoint. (tip : we went nuts especially over their fish amok, grilled beef, kale, and chicken).

But what really stood out for all in the group, was the very personal relationship they establish from the outset. Phil Rogers is the owner and quick to establish rapport (Genevieve's is named after his Wife), walking us through a brief history of how it all came together, why he's into F+B, and how he's working to help the locals improve their economic lot in live. It's now 5years since it began, and the top quality service and the delicious food has only begun coming together in the last two.

It was an enjoyable 2 plus hours. And when the bill came (USD121 for 9 dishes for 10pax), the math just made it compelling for us to seriously consider a revisit.

A good host. Delicious food. Nice environment. Very reasonable price. You've to make a reservation early otherwise there is a high chance that you couldn't get a table. We've been there 3 times during our 8-day journey. They are running the restaurant supporting local youngsters to save money to actualise their dreams. A social-responsible business with good consciousness to living situation in Cambodia. They also have a souvenir store nearby selling handmade products. You're recommended to talk with the host and the waitress to know more about their life stories so that you can have more than a full belly but also a fully refreshed mind.

A bit farther out from the tourist areas, but still very walkable. Larger dining area is able to accommodate groups. The food and service are always top notch with a mix of local and western fare.
