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.

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.
