Didn't try any Mexican food but the local dishes were very tasty. I ordered a sampler platter which was a great way to try a variety of local dishes. Great location by the river. Very nice to chill out here for a while and watch the world go by while having a few cold beers.

Came in here for lunch and were surprised how good the food was. The portion sizes are quite large as well. They have a large selection of Mexican and local food.

Reasonably price restaurant. Near night market. Chicken amok, first time for me. gravy too thick. Chicken curry or fish amok is better. Tortillas is very nice. Angklor beer draft 0.75$/ glass. all same price now along this road. After dinner, enjoy a walk along tonle sap.

I have ordered take-away from Viva quite a few times and really enjoyed it (especially the carne asada. mmm...). So we went there for a real visit. The staff is amazingly friendly and knowledgeable about their menu, there is an AC room for those scorching days - and of course the food is really good, and amazingly cheap when considering...

Can't believe how good the food was here! Honestly was amazing. I would definitely recommend the fajitas and steak. There is also a great selection of vegetarian options. Will definitely be coming again especially as the beer is $0.75!

I have eaten here many times at both locations in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh and feel there is strong consistency. A few times portions have come out smaller than usual but usually portions are very big and I can't remember being disappointed with the food. The best dishes by far are the chimichangas and the fajitas. When I go... More

Good location opposite the riverside quay, casual basic seating, very good service, cheap draft beer--3$/pitcher chilled to perfection, the nachos and quesadillas aren't bad-- it's just that the Taqueria Corona on Pasteur street is a lot better-- big portions and more authentic.
