Just got back from Cambodia - and this place is a MUST if you're in Siem Reap. They offered a Prix Fix menu because we booked through our provider Exotissimo - but it was FANTASTIC!! From the starter through the end, nice selection of drinks and wines, and great service. If you're in Siem Reap - the temples aren't the only hidden treasures...Cuisine Wat Damnak is a jewel for foodies!

We are on our honeymoon and this was our best dinner so far! We both got a different tasting menu and split each course (6 courses for US $26!). We took a tuk tuk and loved going through a grittier neighborhood to this beautiful Haven of deliciousness. I discovered I love frog and beef cheek!

Just one menu for the evening, so call ahead if food allergies. Considers their menu Cambodian Fusion--great use of local ingredients, some French, some Khmer. Still trying to replicate their grapefruit meringue dessert and I don't usually even like meringue!

Very good food, great service, nice pacing. Easy tuk-tuk ride from any hotel.

We were told by our hotel that this place was the best for good Khmer food in Siem Reap. We were definietly not dissapointed. It was off the beaten track and a little hard to find walking in the dark (you might want to take a tuk tuk there), but that really added to the atmosphere for us. We had a 5 course meal that was fantastic and a great way to sample some very well prepared Khmer food. It is worth the visit. You just can't get a meal as good as this in North America for the price you pay here.

Loved our experience at Cuisine Wat Damnak. The set menu is reasonably priced, and included a variety of intriguing flavors and dishes. The service was outstanding, as was the communication from the restaurant when trying to make a reservation (a must, as we saw several groups turned away that arrived without a reservation the night we were there.) Would absolutely encourage anyone looking for a unique Khmer-fusion dining experience to try this restaurant!
