I wouldn't go as far as saying this was the best meal in Cambodia, but it was very good. The setting in the little cabanas in a lovely garden, the attentive staff and tasty food make it a memorable and worthwhile experience. The green mango salad was delicious. I had the pork with roasted mango, and while tasty, the pork... More

My wife and I enjoyed Kanell's wonderful traditional French cuisine when we visited Siem Reap last year and decided to try the two tasting menus focus offered this evening. Both had a distinctive Khmer focus and were delicious! We've eaten at some highly rated restaurants in SE Asia over the past year and Kanell is one of the best.

This restaurant is in a great setting, a little hidden so we grabbed a tuck tuck, the staff are very attentive and the food is amazing. Sarum served us and he was great, he was there when we needed him and gave us space when we needed it. Top work I had the thai beef curry and it was one... More

The best meal we had in Cambodia, that's saying a lot as there are a number of great restaurants around! This was a very special dinner in a pretty, private, tiki hut in the garden. It was so private that we don't actually know if any other people were there at the time, but it was certainly very quiet. They... More

This french restaurant is easy to miss even though its clearly signed. That's because the road leading there is so bad that you have to focus on avoiding the bums getting there. So it was pleasantly surprising to have a wonderful experience there. Food is high quality french fare... prices area bit on the high side but the portion size... More

After looking over Trip advisor recommendations and finding that the restaurant we originally wanted to visit was booked out we chose to eat at Kanell. The food was lovely, the atmosphere was quiet and scenic, friendly, helpful staff and restaurant owner. Highly recommend this restaurant if you want to find a mixture between Asian and French cuisine and are looking... More

We visited this amazing garden restaurant on a busy Friday afternoon, but despite every table being full, our waitress was attentive. The house red was perfectly lovely, and the food was divine. The salmon was particular good and the presentation was creative. Highly recommend. Don't miss out on this hidden Siem Reap gem!

Very nice eatery with limited but specialised French and Asian menu. Lots of fresh ingredients, smart, stylish decor and great service. Background music was a fresh relief. Never thought I'd be listening to Bing Crosby in Cambodia but hey. What a gem.
