Indian Restaurants in Siem Reap


Although there are quite a few Indian restaurants in this town, there are only two that we can safely recommend as worthy of consideration if one feels like having fine Indian cuisine, as shown below. Our general impression of the two establishments is that both have very authentic dishes that curry lovers would enjoy eating. One word of caution is that because most of the dishes are made from scratch, it takes a while before the desired food is ready, so you should keep that in mind, particularly if you are really hungry.  

Maharajah****: A dining experience at MAHARAJAH, Siem Reap, will make you believe that exclusivity with a touch of simplicity is important in the creation of every delicious dish. Along with the assurance of a wide range of delectable dishes and an immaculate service, a meal at The MAHARAJAH restaurant inspires interactive dining. Here is a priceless range of all finger licking royal Indian vegetarian & non vegetarian dishes.

Maharajah is the best Indian restaurant in town, the most favorite haunt of both expiates & tourist curry lovers, due to its fresh, hygienic & authentic preparation. Uses high quality authentic Indian spices that make all the visitors love the delicious food with unforgettable taste. Very reasonable priced.

Food is served with fine yellow rice, pickles and gourmet chutneys.

All dishes are prepared with vegetable oil; vegetables are cleaned with drinking water and the ice made with purified water

Location: Next to Pub Street, Between CAB bank & Provincial hospital, Old Market Area. Siem Reap. 

Address: # 33 Mondol 1, Group 6, Svay Dung Kum commune. Old Market Area, Siem Reap Cambodia Tel:  063-966221   092-506622 

This restaurant is happy to report that they have just opened a new Indian eatery under the same name in Shihanoukville. If you happen to be there, you may want to visit it.

Incidentally, Maharajah is now equipped with the WiFi Internet device so you can surf the Web while waiting for freshly prepared dishes.

New Delhi****: This is a gem of a place which is made sparkling by Mr. Sharma, who is very charming and appears to have a long experience in running a restaurant. We ordered two set menus (thalis): vegetarian ($4)and chicken ($5) thalis. We waited quite a long time, thus indicating that most of the food were made from scratch. The results were very tasty dishes that we thoroughly enjoyed to the fullest extent, as each meal was quite voluminous. On another day, we had two types of curry dishes with chicken: one a regular chicken curry and the other roasted chicken with homemade butter. Both were delicious.

Curry Walla**: Situated about 6 to700 meters from the old market, this restaurant offers average food items on plates that must be dirt cheap as they sometimes have ants and other bugs baked into them. The first time we went there, we found ants in our plates and asked to exchange them for "clean" ones. The management  was not sensitive enough to realize that foreign tourists are not very amused with such "unclean" plates. Although they used to serve very good rice, they no longer do as the rice price has gone up so much in recent years.

East India Curry**: This upscale restaurant is located on the top floor of the new hotel Claremont Angkor directly across the Post Office over the Siem Reap river. It has all the standard Indian dishes that tend to be stale because they do not have many customers. For example, nans you order may be one or two days old, and some tables are full of ants, as the management appears to be very sloppy about the sanitary conditions of the restaurant.    

Kamasutra**: When we first went there to eat, we were surprised to find that the food we had was a European variety with a bit of curry powder thrown in. Then we met an Indian gentleman who has been cooking for over 20 years and who told us that the food here was not really Indian. So we now think this place is not an Indian restaurant. Then we realized that they charged us $3.50 for a bottle of Angkor beer that is equivalent to 2 draft beers. But within 50 meters from this restaurant, there are a number of places that charge $1.00 for two draft beers. We just cannot understand what made the management of this eatery think that they can get away with such a high charge for the beer. We also found that other alcoholic beverages are just as expensive. If you are interested in really authentic Indian food, you should find two of our 4-star restaurants within about 100 meters from this place and enjoy their excellent food.   

Little India**: This restaurant is situated right in front of the Blue Pumpkin, and perhaps for this reason, it is slightly overpriced. We had three dishes of different kinds, but the base sauces were the same, a gravy sauce, with slight differences in taste using ginger, tomato, and eggplant.

Taj India**: This tiny restaurant has a below-average service and offers so-so food. The only redeeming feature is that they offer a draft Angkor beer for 50 cents each.
