I had a wonderful meal at Wat Damnak- the food combinations were unlike anything I had ever tasted. The portions are modest and enable you to enjoy the full 6 courses without feeling you have eaten far too much. The wonderful chef came to each table at the end of the meal and offered a highly unusual selection of tropical... More

A relaxed environment, not at all pretentious. You can eat inside or out. This was booked way ahead, which we understand is necessary. Wonderful, imaginative food, served without fuss, but just attentive enough.

Absolutely sensational cambodain cuisine: the food, the service and the atmosphere make this our favorite on our three weeks trip thru Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Two set menus and if you don't like something, they will adapt. The ( Frecnh) owner couple is incredibly talented, friendly and helpful. He cooks and she is attenting the tables. The food is excellent... More

Thanks to a good friend, we managed to get reservations to this World's top 50 restaurant, and what a night it was... The menu changes every fortnight, based on the seasonal ingredients, and we were lucky to have an really excellent selection of a 6 course dinner. Sitting first at the chef's table, where you get to watch the kitchen,... More

Excellent food, excellent staff, nice owner who even walks up to the road to greet you there and walk you through the garden. Interesting fusion kitchen, nice but small wine list. Would go back there every day!

Great restaurant for fine dining in Siem Reap at an affordable price. It has set menus that you can choose from (out of 2 choices that change every week I believe?) for 31 dollars. The set menus comprise of 5 or 6 dishes that are both interesting and excellent. The service is impeccable and both the chef and the manager... More

We came here for dinner during our visit after a heavy day of sight-seeing and it was fantastic. The two tasting menus on offer both sounded delicious so we opted for one of each. The flavours were delicate, dishes beautifully presented and overall the menus came together in delicious fashion. Stand out courses were a pork dish and a beef... More

You must visit this place if you can afford to and can get a table; delicious food that is a cut above the rest, successfully fusing traditional Khmer cuisine with all sorts of other influences. Atmosphere can be a bit stuffy, mainly due to the type of customer it attracts, but come for the food and enjoy yourselves. Is actually... More

My favourite restaurant while in Siem Reap! After eating so much of the same style of food during our travels, it was nice to have something different. The food was so flavoursome. There were 2 menus to pick from. We selected the one with the frogs legs, and that meal was our absolute top pick. The frogs legs were small,... More

Food is amazing! It's a degustation menu with a lot of plates, each one more exquisitly prepared than the other. Particularly the roasted caramelized pork was unbeatable! The place is beatiful and service quite good. The wine options had good wines for reasonable prices. And the cost: 31 dollar per person! Unbelievable! DO NOT MISS IT !
