Pretty setting but only six or maybe scraping seven out of ten for the food: OK but not particularly special. Downside of the tables in the garden was a LOT of mosquitoes.

We went here at night. It's possibly better as a lunch venue as it is set in a large garden, where you struggle to see other tables - they're many meters away behind bushes, so it does feel a little isolated - perhaps better for a romantic interlude than a family dinner? it felt like quite an expensive place but...

Went there through TripAdvisor and everything is through. ..I do not understand the bad reviews, most likely people who does not understand Asia. Great food and location, friendly staff. ..so yes go there for a quiet dinner. The mosquito repellent is a nice touch, sitting outside. Never had that living in Kathmandu. Presentation of the food is great....A must go... More

The best Khmer food I had in SR, served in a wonderful garden that makes you forget that you are in the touristy and loud Siem Reap, with attentive staff providing you with mosquito repellent spray and a mosquito incense for under the table. Maybe not centrally located, but still easily accessible from typical hotel locations.

The place looks amazing, quiet & romantic, the staff is kind and helpful and the chef is attentive and friendly. Finally and most important part, the... More

After a long morning visiting Angkor wat and around we were tired and hungry and decided to go to Kanell and it was exactly what we were looking for, delicious food and a place to relax. We both had currys that were perfectly spicy and flavorful and started with a crab ravioli appetizer that was wonderful as well. You feel... More

We ate supper at Kanell. We sat outside in their lovely garden. The restaurant tables are scattered around below open air thatch roofs, between plants, trees and flowers and is well illuminated. It offers intimacy in a lovely and low key way. They offer french and local food. Everything we ate was fresh and very good. My 8 year old... More
