I can't say enough good about this restaurant. Private tiki hit in a beautiful garden with outstanding service (and free bug spray just I'm case). The wine was great and priced really well for SE Asia. Everything we ordered was cooked perfectly and the recommendations by the staff for dinner were outstanding (local Cambodian filet - delicious). Out of the... More

We went here for our first night in Siem Reap. The restaurant is in a quiet alley off the noisy streets. It's quite large with a beautiful outdoor garden and seating area. We order both some western and local dishes. All of them were delicious and presented nice. The degustation menu was a great way to taste some local cuisine.

Kanell combines great food with a wonderful atmosphere. Set in beautiful surrounds, the food is simply sublime. The salmon was our dish of the night! A must-do for a bit of fancy dining in Cambodia.

We had dinner with friends in the garden one night.The tables were set amid the beautiful tropical plants which gives you privacy. The owner greeted us and offered us delicate and succulent "amuse bouche". The meal was wonderful, the atmosphere magical. My favorite was the dessert made with passion fruit (fruit, emulsion and ice cream). Our experience was so positive,we... More

Ordered 2 types of degustacion for late lunch and thoroughty enjoyed the food, atmosphere, and service! Did not expect to be served amuse bouches but the French chef-owner graciously sent us a pretty platter of small bites. A lovely, unforgettable meal.

We regret that this was the last restaurant we went to during our stay in the city. The garden seating is magical, the service was excellent with perfect attention to detail and training and spoke fluent english. The menu reveals that the owner is french and the food which offers a lovely mix between local and french cuisine was truly... More

We went this place for dinner and then for drinks by the pool in the afternoon. From the team and the owner, to the place and the food it was just perfect. The food is delicious and very good value for the money. And by night it s just so romantic.... dining in a marvelous garden. Unique. By day, you... More

Our favourite meal we had in Siem Reap! Gorgeous setting in a lush garden. Our table for two was under a pergola with plants around three sides, very pretty. The food was a mix of French, Asian, and Khmer. I ordered some kind of Khmer stew and it was delicious. Like other reviewers have said, excellent service as well!

Overall great experience in this lovely restaurant. The menu is well balanced with French and Cambodian traditional and more adventurous dishes. Prices are fair seen the setting and excellent service. Make sure to arrange transport for the way back though. Thanks guys.

We arrived late at night due to a delayed flight, with three starving and tired kids. Our hotel could not serve us food and so they recommended Kanell. Although due to the lateness of the hour and the tired kids we couldn't really relax and enjoy the meal, the service was outstanding and the food we rushed down was also... More
