Pleasantly unique, but a bit disappointing

I had booked a table for 4 persons several days before leaving Canada, and we felt this was going to be the highlight of our dining experience in South East Asia.

Booked a table 10 days in advance and had a nice table in the garden. Had one of the set menu which included some very nice Cambodian dishes with a French twist really good. Was a little afraid of the mosquitoes but did not getany bites at all. Would love to come back for another delicious dinner.

What a wonderful food experience. Everything about this restaurant was perfect. The service was excellent and, well, if you appreciate good Kilmer food, THIS IS THE PLACE!

It was difficult to choose one of the two set menus as they both looked good. They change the menu on a weekly basis, so knowing which one we chose probably won't help you. Everything was presented beautifully and we got to try some things we had never tasted before (spoiler alert: elephant ear is a vegetable, but beef tongue... More

I really enjoyed the food at Wat Damnak. Designed to resemble the experience of a French gastronomic restaurant, but with a nice fusion of French and local flavors, the tasting menus offer a great variety and a few surprises. The location is beautiful and the service is great. And the value is great, considering the reasonable price and the quality... More

Probably one of the best restaurants in Cambodia. The food is absolutely amazing. They have only tasting menus and that is great that you do not have to choose yourself. The service is very good but not as excellent as the food. While is expensive compared to other locals restaurant is very cheap for the quality of the food. The... More

I wasn't sure if this was the type of place I really wanted to go to in Cambodia, I was thinking this would be a tourist trap but the reviews told me I should try it and decide for myself. We were greeted by the chef himself which was lovely and given a table by the window. Unfortunately the air-con... More

Cuisine Wat Damnak makes you feel like you are dining at a world class restaurant, at a price that you just can't find anywhere else in the world. Both of the set menus lead you through a delicious and memorable exploration of some essential Cambodian flavors. And the service and presentation are flawless. Make sure to book your table a...
