Located in a peaceful nook on the well-known Street 228 in the heart of Phnom Penh’s bustling city, Cuisine Wat Damnak is housed in a stunning 1950’s built solid brick villa, originally designed by Cambodian architect Mam Sophana and elegantly renovated in 2020 by Ivan Tizianel of Asma Architects.
The restaurant accommodates between 50 to 60 guests, with a choice of seating preferences such as open-air garden, air-conditioned ground floor and first floor seating, as well as an elegant VIP room which hosts up to 10 people comfortably, for exclusive private occasions. There is also a discreet walk in wine cellar located behind the staircase on the ground floor which stores the house reserve.
