Hawaii Pizza House

Hawaii Pizza House

More than pizza

More on Siem Reap

If you’re drawn in just on the name of this simple and inexpensive establishment, with its basic decoration and semi open-air set up, then you’d have been misled, since family-run Hawaii Pizza offers much more than just a respectable pizza.

Travelfish says:
Simple is sometimes all you need.

Simple is sometimes all you need.

While there’s nothing challenging or controversial on the menu, making it a good option for conservative diners, you can stock up on hearty comforting favourites like garlic bread, Greek salad, bruschetta or even chicken breast and camembert which can all be savoured without digging too deeply into your pocket. Khmer classics start at $2.00 and Western mains are a steal starting at $2.50 for a burger.

The pizzas themselves, coming in three sizes, don’t quite pass the authentic Italian test, but they do pass our official carb-satisfying, really filling, didn’t-skimp-on-the-cheese, tasty and good value test. The small size (starting at $3.00) is big enough for one and is served on round wooden boards. And unlike the Italian eateries in town it also serves up a tasty breakfast. Hash brown, eggs and grilled tomatoes on a Sunday morning, yes please.

Happy hour runs seven days a week and with a pool table at the back it’s a good place to hang out with the chilled out – though sometimes very quiet – vibe. More serious revelers are better off heading to Pub Street for the bars, but they’d be wise to grab their dinner here first if staying around the backpacker patch of guesthouses behind the New Apsara Market that Hawaii Pizza is situated right by.

No pretensions at this family-run restaurant.

Given the overwhelming number of dining options around Pub Street and the Old Market, it’s not worth the effort to hop in a tuk-tuk to come and discover Hawaii Pizza, but certainly worth saving a journey if you’re already up this end of town and enjoy a relaxed meal in this laidback unassuming find.

Hawaii Pizza is hardly a splurge, but if you’re on an even tighter budget head 50 metres further up Wat Bo, in the direction of Route 6, to Star Rise restaurant – a popular choice with budget backpackers where the walls are etched with travellers’ graffiti and declarations of record numbers of their popular chicken sandwich consumed.
