Our dinner experience could not have been nicer. The setting was amazing. The food was excellent. We even went back a second evening. The only caution is that it can be a little difficult to find, especially at night. Best bet is to find a tuk tuk operator who knows where it is located. .

The tables are set in a garden each under their own little hut so you have ultimate privacy whilst you enjoy the delicious food being served here. All the staff are extremely polite and helpful and the prices are way too affordable bot to try this place!

Our first night in Siem Reap and a perfect place for dinner, walk around the back to the lovely garden, with people dining in small thatched huts, a lovely atmosphere with swimming pool if you feel inclined. The food was very nice without being exceptional, the service pretty good. Getting a tuk-tuk back to the hotel took a little while,... More

We went to Kanell for lunch with our young daughter. We had a swim in the beautiful pool and had iced cold beers brought to us poolside. AFter a swim we walked down to the outside restaurant area and proceeded to eat the most amazing chicken Amok curry. I could say it was the best I had in Siem Reap.... More

Was a bit worried as the street view is not promising, but after walking around back to the beautiful gardens, and feasting on the fabulous food, we would have been happy to go back. Repeatedly.

Food great and large servings. Excellent service from the moment you stepped into the garden. They understood my thick Aussie accent too (bonus!). A great spot on trip adviser. Further detail on the food, I started with the mango salad but too spicy for thhi no chill lass, so I had the crab ravioli instead. The dish was on the... More

We came to Kanell on one of our first nights in Siem Reap, in order to try some of the local Cambodian food. Fortunately we weren't disappointed! The restaurant is in a nice location outside, set in picturesque gardens away from the road and noise. There is plenty of space, allowing for a nice feeling of privacy and seclusion from... More
