Cuisine Wat Damnak Restaurant in Siem Reap

Award-Winning Restaurant at Wat Damnak Village

Cuisine Wat Damnak is an award-winning restaurant founded by French chef Joannès Rivière in 2001. This exclusive fine-diner – the first-ever Cambodian restaurant to have been ranked in the critically acclaimed 'Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants' list serves Khmer delicacies prepared according to French haute-cuisine principles.

The restaurant occupies a traditional Cambodian home within Wat Damnak Village, with an al fresco dining area that’s surrounded by verdant trees and local herbs, a modern air-conditioned space with local artwork and handicrafts, and an all-wooden upstairs section that’s fitted with a number of vintage local furnishing. There are 5-course and 6-course degustation menus available here, available from US$24 and US$28.

To keep things interesting, the menu changes on a fortnightly basis to utilise seasonal ingredients from across Southeast Asia. Chef Joannes Riviere is also known to incorporate rare Cambodian produce in his recipes, including feroniella, ambarella and kuy fruits, edible flowers, shellfish and fish that are native to Mekong River and Tonle Sap Lake. Although dishes here may contain nuts, pork, and seafood, Cuisine Wat Damnak can easily accommodate vegans, vegetarians and diners with specific dietary requirements.

Standout dishes at Cuisine Wat Damnak include beef cheek saraman (roasted peanut curry), Angkor Stout slow-cooked pork ribs soup with calamari, seaweed, shiny Cresson and green cabbage, prawn and sticky rice grilled in a banana leaf, ripe and pickled green papaya salad, and stir-fried minced pork with prahok (fermented fish paste) and eggs, garnished with herbs, edible flowers and local crudités.

You can find Cuisine Wat Damnak Restaurant at the Siem Reap Riverside, which is a 5-minute tuk-tuk ride from Angkor Night Market. Due to its popularity, we highly recommend making a reservation before making your way to the restaurant.
