A new addition to this sophisticated food scene is Por Cuisine, a contemporary fine dining restaurant with a fusion theme. East meets West is a hackneyed phrase, this is more your pot pouri of traditional Khmer, Asian and international fare. Presented as a four course experience that will challenge your taste buds and create a lasting impression for a fixed price as low as USD$12 per person.

The design, fit-out and facilities would not be out of place in one of the upmarket burroughs of New York.

It is a rice to riches story for owner Por, whose name proudly stands out on the shingle.

In 1983 Por had a vision of owning a fine dining restaurant. He started by opening a humble kiosk serving his traditional noodle creations to the people of Siem Reap. His simple dish became an essential part of the community food chain, a taste that made his family well known and celebrated. Now 30 years later, the dream and the flavours have come to life. The family tradition continues but with a state of the art modern classic restaurant design and an exciting array of enticing flavours from both East and West.

Por Cuisine also serves individual set dinners and personalised catering for big or small parties and can include a traditional Apsara dance show in the tropical fresh air and green garden setting. The venue is popular with locals and international visitors. The restaurant was formally opened in January this year. “We know there is a lot of competition in the restaurant industry here but our objective is to be among the best and leading in Siem Reap. Quality, service, cleanliness and social responsibility are our top priorities,” said sales manager, Baty Sokphirun.
