We ended up trying this restaurant from the recommendation of the head chef of Lecuisine Wat Damnak (another review), and we loved it. Cozy fine dining restaurant, where we ended up trying some of the a la carte dishes instead of the degustation menu. Really enjoyed the food (new Khmer dishes) and atmosphere, and even despite a heavy rainstorm, which caused a semi-flood in the outdoor seating area. Made it extra cozy.

Don't be fooled by the name, it isn't really a café but a nice restaurant that serves really good Khmer fusion cuisine. Having been to a similar restaurant the night before for dinner, I was extremely surprised that the food here was much better. The fish risotto was excellent and I have to say, the ONLY risotto I've had that was of similar standard was in Gruyeres, Switzerland. I also enjoyed the Khmer curry and the frozen lime pie. Service was also very good. Will definitely be back if I return to Siem Reap!

Just like a true bistro gastro in Siem Reap, the chief cooks very nice and tasty dishes using local fresh ingredients, Khmer original recipes and a Mediterranean type of twist. The garden is nice and quiet for a lovely lunch and diner. Good selection of wine as well for a typical bistro meal. Long story short, hurry up to visit this place.

"We dined here on the last day of our stay in Siem Reap and it was a perfect conclusion. The food was super tasty and delicious. We are real foodies and we were very lucky to have found this place. Also, the service and atmosphere of the place were super nice! If we ever go back to Siem Reap we will for sure return to this beautiful restaurant!"

Elegant, delicious food and lovely ambiance for our dinner. But book early if you have a specific date/time you want to eat, as we had to eat later than we wanted just to get a reservation. So glad we were flexible! A perfect way to end our trip.

Excellent food and service in this small cambodian restaurant. Second best in Siem Reap after the Cuisine Wat Damnak. The food is very good with fresh ingredients and the atmophere great, open kitchen, New York style. Reservations needed. Very close ( walking distance) to the Sofitel hotel. Portion are normal by european standards.

If you want a truly unique and delicious dinner in Siem Reap, you must definitely go for dinner at Mie Café. I am a New Yorker who has travelled and eaten around the world, so I am not so easily impressed. But, Mie Café really knocked me over. The food is prepared creatively, presented beautifully, and features combinations you would never imagine. The food is "fusion" of a kind, but "fusion" is not really accurate enough to describe it. To give you some idea, this is the dinner my wife (Thai) and I had: frogs legs, crab soup, scallops, krill

During our recent six week trip to Southeast Asia, we had many excellent meals but a few stood out as extraordinary including a lovely dinner at Mie Café. It is a short tuktuk ride from downtown and set in a quiet garden. The food is very sophisticated and creative using local ingredients in new ways. Every dish was a delight but I have to give extra props to the crab soup which may have been the best version I have ever eaten and the amazing krill ravioli. For the quality of food and dining experience, the cost was reasonable. Reservations

Highly recommended for those who wish to try fusion Khmer cuisine presented in the most honest-to-goodness way. Friendly service staff and worth to pay a visit to experience this distinctively unique taste. We will be back again!

"We weren't expecting a vegan option when we booked this place on friends' recommendation. But when we arrived, the vegan menu looked so delicious, we had to order it. The cute chef is very talented, taking common Cambodian ingredients (eggplant, tomatoes, herbs) and combining them in new ways. The vegetable curry was divine, and the open-air setting a delight. "

"The first impression here is great with a modern restaurant in a ramshackle street. The menu is a great fusion of traditional Khmer and modern cuisine. The flavour of the food was as good as anywhere in Siem Reap and very reasonably priced. Our pork ribs fell off the bone and our chicken curry was delicate and delicious. The service was a little slow but I suspect there were quite a few trainees this night. Well worth the visit."

Siv Pala is a Cambodian chef to watch out for. He trained in Switzerland and has added European technique to Khmer cooking that is fresh and innovative. We tried the highly rated, over rated, very formal Damnak lounge but it pales in comparison. We had both lunch and dinner here the same day because it was so good. We had the gourmet set menu. 5 courses for $24 US but brilliant dishes starting with a shrimp cold starter and the fresh fish soup, then two amazing entrees-a langoustine crepe and an oxtail stew. Both were subtle with rich texture and

"We were recommended this by the chef at Cusine Wat Damnak and were not at all disappointed. We selected the vegan menu as it sounded really interesting and found it to be absolutely delicious....definitely worth having even if you are not vegan. The Samlor kary was superb and the chocolate lychee desert truly fabulous. Another fabulous meal - great way to end our holiday"

We were happy coming to Mie Cafe one evening. The atmosphere was nice, the staff friendly and the food delicious ... Sitting on the ground floor, looking out at the nice garden, listening to the frogs, and all this while being in town - wonderful. Recommend.

nice, small restaurant with friendly staff and good, innovative food. We were very well taken care of and left the restaurant happy. And for all those Swiss who know what a "Röstiraffel" is, watch out for some of the lamps. Very nice and an excellent idea which I will copy at home! I can highly recommend this restaurant and I am happy that the owner of Wat Damrak told us to go there.

Awesome food in a matching atmosphere. If you are into food and want to impress your wife/partner/affair, this is an appropriate place to go. The set menu will give you a variety of flavours to cherish. There are nice wines to compliment it. Price is higher than average but very fair for the quality you get. Extra nice evening!

This charming restaurant ticks all the boxes. Service is efficient, friendly and knowledgeable, the food is local but with a modern twist, and beautifully presented, and the setting is in a pretty garden. The tonle sap fish salad, and the frozen lime pie were particularly good.

We went to Mie Cafe based on a Trip Advisor review and it was well worth it. I liked it so much that we went twice. The food is very authentic, creative and made with care. Its a small place but very smart and clean. You can see the kitchen and head chef from your table. The menu is simple (not your usual tourist fare) but had enough choice to suit my wife and kids and their diverse requirements. The food scene in Siem Reap has really evolved and places like Mie Cafe are part of the reason why.

"This is a small, fairly unassuming restaurant located in a lovely outdoor garden in the shade of a house in Siem Reap. It is easy walking distance to several large hotels on the outskirts of town. The menu is labeled ""fusion"", meaning that the flavor axis is Cambodian, but presentation styles and cooking techniques seemed to draw from other world cuisines. Nevertheless, the food was fabulous (and I'm picky). Prices were very reasonable. The Khmer curry was incredible. There is an a la carte menu, a fixed menu and a vegan menu."

Great food with creative and exciting dishes sophisticatedly presented. Perfect if you are fed up with 100% authentic Cambobian food and want to spice it up a bit. Not the best value for money in our opinion but an excellent dining experience.

I came here for lunch by myself and was amazed by the pleasant environment. I sat at the garden and the staff nicely put 2 fans facing me. The food was great - I had beef tartare which was marinated with local herbs and topped with plenty of parmesan cheese. I also had the fish amok which is a classic Khmer dish. The meal was ended with a homemade vanilla ice-cream. I would definitely recommend this restaurant!

For anyone wanting to sample delicious Khmer cuisine in a relatively traditional setting (wooden home, open garden) - Mie Cafe is not to be missed. I have been several times, and things keep getting better. Pola (chef) is hugely passionate about his food and you can always tell. Everything is lovingly made.

Went on the recommendation of a local and were blown away by the quality of the cooking here. We weren't surprised to hear that the patron/chef had trained in a Michelin 2 Star in Switzerland. The food shames many one star restaurants I've eaten in elsewhere. We both started with scallop tartare with seaweed and heart of coconut. I followed with Fish Amok and S with a risotto. All just superb. We are going back tonight. Do not miss if you are in town.

We were fortunate to get a table at the Mie Cafe as it was extremely busy. The food was superb and beautifully presented. My partner had the Crab Chowder which he still talks about 7 months later. If you want a quality meal experience in a quiet setting I would advice you book ahead. Cambodia is an incredible place to visit and one which we both enjoyed.

Set in lovely wooden home, just outside the centre of town in Siem Reap, Mie Café offers a tranquil dining experience. Soak up the warm atmosphere, and watch the kitchen at work whilst savouring modern cuisine with a personalised Cambodian touch. Delectable dishes include beef laab salad, tuna tartar, and curry with prawn ravioli. The garden views, featuring vegetables, herbs and flowers, adds to the relaxing setting.
Open every day (except Tuesday) for lunch and dinner.
Mie Cafe is a discreet restaurant, set in the lovely Khmer wooden house of the chef's grand-mother, with an organic garden for fresh herbs at the front. The ground floor offers a cozy space, open air with view to the kitchen. The second floor is a comforting dining room, with wooden floor, ceiling and walls.
Chef Pola makes fresh, local, seasonal ingredients a priority and creates a cuisine that reflects his personality: generous, low-profile, sensitive and caring. Mixing Asian flavors, western techniques and family secrets, his dishes are surprisingly original and creative.
