Remarkable

We enjoyed a very fine meal in this restaurant. The food, a fixed five or six course dinner which varies weekly, was exquisite, the wine list adequate, the service attentive, and the ambiance clean and pleasant.

Went to try a highly recommended place in Siem Reap. Was set in a quite place with a good atmosphere to the place. You can either choose to dine indoors or outside. As the weather was good, we chose outdoors. We were seated and served by waitresses who seems like they were in training. Perhaps when they are fully trained... More

Honestly speaking, even if the food is worth Asia Top 50 restaurant (and the list is a bit questionable anyway), this place has TERRIBLE service and extremely rude staff. Not worth spending your money (even if it's only USD 28) here to be treated poorly. You will find much better quality and service else where.

Tonight was my third time to this restaurant and I absolutely love it. It just got voted into the top 50 restaurants in Asia and it's easy to see why. It was an absolutely beautiful meal. The chef is a lovely guy, the staff are magnificently and very professionally trained, the garden where we ate was nice. I don't know... More

We had dinner here whilst staying in Siem Reap. This place is very popular and booking ahead is essential. The food was delicious and freshly prepared. Service was attentive and very courteous and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended and a "must" when in Siem Reap for authentic Cambodian cuisine.

My husband & I dined at Cusine Wat Damnak last night and thoroughly enjoyed the 5 course menu. The innovative approach to using local ingredients is definitely working. Wish we had time to visit again.

French-style cooking with Cambodian ingredients in Siem Reap. What could go wrong? A lot in less skilled hands, but this place is near- perfect. The six course tasting menu is a huge bargain as are the cocktails (tamarind with vodka? yes, please).

We (3 people) dined here recently after reading the reviews and talking with friends who had dined here. The Good - The Food, The Food.......and the food. The food is fresh, vibrantly flavored, beautifully presented and the six-course degustation menu is very thoughtfully crafted. It is a little food journey through the Khmer countryside and beyond.

We booked a table here after reading so many excellent reviews. We had high expectations and we were not disappointed. We hired a tuk-tuk to take us there and were surprised at how far out of the centre it was and in what seemed like a residential area. Any doubts were dismissed as soon as we entered the beautiful garden... More

Supposedly one of the best restaurants in Siem Reap we went to this restaurant - and were not disappointed. There are 2 tasting menus, De-licious, very reasonably priced, not over-filling. If you're a foodie this place is a "must". Only thing I could think of is that they could have had a few more minutes between the servings of each... More
