Authentic Khmer dishes in wonderful setting

Well reviewed by many travel writers, we chose this and booked months ago as it is very popular and the owners do close the restaurant for weeks at a time. Tasting menus A and B which you can try one of each as a couple – superb. We chose the fan cooled upper floor rather […]

The Best – Delicious food, wine, amazing service

“This was easily the best meal we ate in Cambodia. It was absolutely brilliant. The food was incredible. It uses Cambodian flavours with modern techniques and presentation. Most importantly though, everything tasted divine. Great wine list and excellent recommendations from the chef. Cocktails were also great. Service was perfect, friendly and helpful. Loved to see […]

Best meal in Siem Reap!

“After 5 trips to Siem Reap, I finally found a great restaurant! Wat Damnak is absolutely a gem of a place, The ambience, food, and service are all outstanding. The food, however, is what sets this place apart. There’s no point making recommendations since the menu changes every week, but suffice to say that every […]

Best Meal – Must Eat Here

“Spectacular experience! Food, setting, service – all were perfect. The chef really draws on Cambodian flavors and seasonal fruit and vegetables, and combines them in an impeccably thought-out menu. The fish and seafood dishes were particularly delicious – although we loved everything we ate. You could easily pay three or four times the price for […]

Wonderful food, setting & service

Don’t know why this is not No. 1 restaurant in Siem Reap. Have been 3 times in last 5 months and tried many other upmarket restaurants, this is by far the best. Flavours of Cambodian food explode in your mouth in a wonderful tasting presentation by the French chef. Other Cambodian restaurants try and some […]

Terrific food and lovely service

“Cuisine Wat Damnak came highly recommended by friends and it truly didn’t disappoint! We were fortunate to be warmly greeted by the proprietor chef, Joannès Rivière; a super nice man – and fantastic chef! We had the 6 course tasting menu (there were 2 options) we were able to mix choices from one menu with […]

Good food. Nice breezy balcony

The food and beer was good. It was a spacious getaway from the crowded streets. Get their salads. Sit on the balcony at sunset

Special dinner at a special place. You’ll need a reservation

“No need to consider twice. Make sure you make a reservation, and go. 6-course trail of amazingness and a great selection of drinks (we had wine for this visit, but the cocktail menu also seemed fantastic). The vibe is cozy/intimate, with some personal touch of the owners. Two thumbs up!”

Amazing food and service

The chef was amazing, very personable and greeted all his guests. The food was amazing and we tried both menus. I have to follow a gluten free diet and the chef made sure that some elements were changed for me. However, saying that there was very little on the menu I couldn’t eat. Very fresh […]

Very special meal with great food, cocktails and service

“We weren’t impressed by the food in Cambodia with the exception of this meal, which we would love to revisit again and again! Thankfully for the prices (high by cambodian standards but low by international standards) this would actually be feasible!) The food: – Was outstanding, with lots of attention to detail and fresh ingredients! […]
