The Art Shadow Restaurant has a beautiful setting in a quiet garden in the middle of Siem Reap. You can enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner from a generous A La Carte menu, surrounded by verdant tropical trees and assisted by a friendly staff.
Each Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday evening, between 7:30 to 8:30 pm, you can enjoy a tribal dance performance.
Native to the Mondulkiri tribe, the sacred ritual dances are captivating and awe-inspiring. You will learn more about this tribe through their hypnotizing movements and chants, as well as through their colorful traditional costumes. All these elements work together so the young Mondulkiri can pray for better harvests, and you can get a taste of the local spirituality.
This harvesting dance is part of the north-east Cambodian traditions, but you will also enjoy other dances. For instance, the blessing ceremony of Kab Krobey Pherk Sra pertains to the Phnong people, an ethnic group in Ratanakiri. As the people ask the spirits for peace and prosperity, they sacrifice a buffalo and offer them its head.
The Ploy Souy Dance is another intriguing experience. Part of the Leang Somnam ceremony, this dance is enacted by the Souy people who ask for protection from their gods and their cave spirit.
Lastly, the classic Apsara Dance is the hearthstone of the Khmer culture – a ritual that begs the spirits for rain, prosperity, and peace. Instances of this dance are even represented on the walls of the Angkor Wat temples, dating from the reign of famous King Suryavarman II.
Moreover, the Art Shadow Restaurant is a popular choice to organize a private or company event. From birthday parties to romantic dinners, from group lunches to corporate events, the Art Shadow staff and catering team can make any gathering happen. There are special packages for all these events, to make sure your needs and preferences are tended to.
