No question the food in Kanell is good, the surroundings relaxing and the ambience very welcoming. I feel however that the restaurant needs to give a little more effort in training their team adequately both in service and communicating with the guests as it was such a struggle during lunch today (the restaurant wasn't packed at all) explaining what we...

This restaurant has both a nice garden and a normal restaurant room for dining. The location is peaceful and 1 km away from pub street. We had dinner twice at the garden and I would recommend it. We had both, western and Cambodian dishes. All dishes were really good and both, vegetable curry and pork curry were exceptionally good. The... More

Lovely afternoon relaxing by the pool. Excellent deal: you can use the pool as long as you spend 5 dollars on food or drinks. We had a delicious meal. I had the vegetable and shrimp tempura, which was very tasty with a lemon and black pepper dip. The staff are very friendly. You are given a towel for the sunbeds.... More

With a French chef they offer the best from both worlds. We enjoyed our lunch and only regret we did not come for dinner as the place must be even more charming and romantic at night. Charming setting in the garden!

This must be one of the best restaurants in Siem Reap. They have a chose in French and Asian kitchen. The service is also excellent and it's a nice place to sit. Next time we will try it in combination of swimm because when you spend more than 5 USD on drinks or food the swimm is for free.
