Fodor's Review

One of the best no-frills restaurants in Siem Reap, the Sugar Palm is infused with the owner's colorful enthusiasm for traditional Khmer cuisine learned from her mother and grandmother. After years in exile in New Zealand during the Khmer Rouge regime, Kethana returned to her homeland determined to create a familial place where diners could enjoy her favorite dishes, such as her uniquely soufflélike fish amok, which is made to order. As you wait, sample a flavorful variety of starters such as crispy shrimp cakes with black-pepper sauce or banana-blossom salad with chicken. The restaurant is on the second floor of a traditional-style timber house, and its food as well as its airy, modern-traditional atmosphere has drawn all manner of diners, including superstar chef Gordon Ramsay, who filmed a cooking show here.
