There are some cheap food stalls around Phsar Svay Rieng for those, who want a faster and budget feed. Snack stalls are opening at late afternoon till the night along the river.
The following three restaurants are just east of Monument Circle and quite close to each other. They are all open throughout the day, starting at the crack of dawn with Chinese noodle soup and omelettes with French bread. All have signs and menus in English, and pleasant staff.
Svay Rieng Restaurant:
It's a pleasant, small restaurant with Khmer and Chinese food.
This doublewide restaurant is very popular with the locals. They have some Western food as well as the usual Khmer and Chinese fare.
Rasmey Nimol Restaurant:
This corner restaurant catches a breeze better than the other two. They also serve up good food.
Serei Pheap Thmai Retaurant:
This is the one with the deck overlooking the water mentioned earlier. They have good food and the staff can speak English.
Boeng Meas Restaurant:
This nice little wooden restaurant is built on stilts near the riverside and is considered to be one of the best in town. All Khmer favourites are clearly listed on the proper English menu and the service is swift.
