Koulen Restaurant has built an enviable reputation is Siem Reap thanks to its top-quality service and delicious food. The menu caters to a wide array of preferences, displaying meals from authentic Khmer to Asian and Western cuisine. As such, the restaurant has extended to a capacity of 650+ seats, catered by a staff of over 140 people. The staff are friendly, easy-going and speak perfect English. The atmosphere in Koulen Restaurant is outstanding. The tropical plants and flowers create a lush, exotic air of mystery and spirituality, taking you back to the glorious time of the Angkor Empire.
The hypnotizing Apsara Dance Shows which take place every evening enhance this vibrant atmosphere. Part of Cambodia’s oral tradition, the Apsara dances have been transmitted from generation to generation, creating a strong bond between Cambodia’s present and its past. The show, which starts at 7.30 pm each night of the week has its roots in a Cambodian legend about the union of Apsara Mera, queen of the heavenly nymphs, to the hermit Kampu. Thus the Khmer people are descendants of these two shining figures.
Mera, dressed entirely in white, is mesmerizing through its garden dances which prophesize happiness and wealth for the Khmer people. The other nymphs bring her flowers, and their movements represent a dance of love for the new people of Cambodia. At Koulen Restaurant, you can be amazed by the graceful moves of the professionally trained dancers who astound you with graceful moves and incredible, traditional outfits. Each hand gesture has a particular meaning, so pay close attention to this internationally-famed stunning Apsara show, while you enjoy your meal.
