Incredible degustation menu that is amazing value for money. Imaginative, innovative take on Cambodia food with French flair.

Very good regional food. Set menu was great. We live in London, and this is one of the best meals we have had in a very long time. Highly recommended.

The food was delicious and perfectly sized. You are given a choice of two different menus with five or six courses. We opted for six and were so pleased to have the extra course! We were perfectly full at the end. I even swapped one course from the other menu without problem or fuss. The food was fresh, tasty and... More

This place is a hidden gem. Outstanding food and excellent service in addition. Wat Damnak exceeded its reputation as one of the best restaurants in Siem Reap, the ambience and service were befitting the higher price tag, but the quality of the food went beyond our expectations.

The food here is excellent....from the presentation to the ambience to the service.....it is very professional. My ONLY complaint is that the set menu (5 or 6 dish options) take a long time to come out. I've been here three times (and will definitely be back for a fourth and fifth time....) and the whole dining experience from aperitif to... More

Each one of the six courses was perfectly balanced and sized. It felt like a Cambodian Noma in the way they elevated the local Cambodian ingredients and cuisine. The chef explained that half the menu changes every week to take advantage of what is in season. You can tell that they follow this philosophy as each component of a dish... More

We read about this restaurant in the Bangkok airways magazine while flying into Seam Reap, who gave it rave reviews.....& we have to agree it was absolutely delicious, and so unexpected. Each dish presented was a new experience of taste & presentation. The staff were also exceptional with the chef visiting our table before we left with a sample of... More

Great atmosphere and super food experience, must try the set menu consisting of six courses prepared by renowned chef. Although it may seem a lot the food is served in delicate portions with a fusion of Cambodian and contemporary cuisine. Located within reasonable proximity from the city center is a hidden gem if you appreciate sophisticated food. Excellent list of... More

After reading many brilliant reviews of this place, I made a reservation at Cuisine Wat Damnak as a special birthday treat for my boyfriend, and I was so happy I did so as my boyfriend was very happy with the quality of the food which was a fusion of Khmer and western cuisine, helpful service and ambience of the restaurant....

While in Siem Reap, a new friend suggested I dine at Cuisine Wat Damnak and I am thankful to him for that. There are no appropriate words to describe this fabulous culinary experience. The evening stated with the most gracious welcome by Carole who consistently checked on me through the evening. The waitress was very nice and attentive as well.... More
