Kroya (“food” in the Khmer Royal language) is Shinta Mani Club’s signature restaurant that offers authentic & fine Khmer culinary.
As this is our first trip to Siem Reap, we were eager to experience Khmer culinary. With many positive reviews under its belt, we were looking forward to it.
The restaurant offers air-conditioned comfort, outdoor seating & also romantic swing terrace.
Upon arriving the restaurant for our dinner, we were greeted warmly by the waiter and guided to our Swing seat.
As first timer, we were glad Kroya offers a 7 set Traditional Khmer Tasting Menu (USD31 per person) that emphasize on current season’s harvest. This has save us a lot of hassle choosing what to order.
We started off with Mekong River Prawn & Pomelo Salad which is very appetizing with the sweet & hint sour of pomelo & toasted crunchy coconut. Finished the dish off with a small cup of local brew.
The grilled beef were juicy & tender and pair perfectly with the eggplant that is well cooked not over soggy. After both delicious appetizer, we got even hungrier.
The next 4 set is presented as a main dish consisting fragrantly pan fried fish & peppery yet tender frog leg to be eaten with the organic rice. Each mouthful is presented a slight variance of the sweetness & texture of both white & brown rice.
We ended the meal with some heavenly Khmer dessert that were unique as we never tried before.
The refined menu at Kroya Restaurant features modern interpretations of classic Khmer cuisine with its artfully presented & authentic delicious food.
Service at the restaurant was also impeccable, the staffs were outstanding, always catering to our needs throughout our dinner.
For its romantic ambiance, contemporary decor, great service & most importantly fantastic food, no wonder most guest repeatedly dine at Kroya during their time in Siem Reap.
We would definitely come back for more!
