The Dining Room is headed by a Cambodian Executive Chef, Chef Pisith Theam, who is also a native of Siem Reap. Chef Pisith has developed three Khmer Set Menus inspired by three cities: Siem Reap, Souk, and Battambang. When I dined for dinner at The Dining Room, I chose the 4-course Siem Reap Menu.

I started my dinner with Grilled Fish Salad for appetizer. This is a green mango salad with grilled fish caught from Tonle Sap lake, mixed with julienned carrot, basil, lime, and roasted peanuts. It has a well-balanced tartness, saltiness and sweetness with the smokey flavor from the grilled fish.

The next dish served was the Chicken Sour Soup. It was a very refreshing soup with natural sweetness and tartness coming from the pineapples and tomatoes. It has a generous portion of chicken which makes this soup already a meal on its own when eaten with rice.

For the main course, I had the Wok-Fried Prawn Curry. Plump prawns, together with squid, are cooked in a very aromatic curry broth. Roasted peanuts are added for texture. The curry had a very subtle saltiness and sweetness, very fragrant, yet not too spicy. When eaten with Jasmine rice, you can savor both the flavors of the curry and the aroma of the rice.

For dessert, I had Assorted Khmer Sweets consisting of steamed banana cake, pumpkin cake, and cassava pudding. To complete my Khmer dining experience, I paired my dessert with Khmer Coffee.

As mentioned earlier, live cultural shows are performed at the hotel's courtyard during dinner time. It was a Monday evening when I had dinner at The Dining Room and some of the dances featured were the Pailin Peacock Dance, the Cambodian Court Dance, and the Apsara Dance. The dance performances were accompanied by live classical Khmer music. Here is the view from where I was seated.

While visiting the temples of Angkor will give you a deep appreciation of the architectural wonders and history of the ancient Khmer Empire, food and arts, on the other hand, are some of the living aspects of local Khmer culture that you shouldn't miss while in Siem Reap. Having said that, I consider my dining experience at The Dining Room as one of the highlights of my trip to Siem Reap.
