CUISINE WAT DAMNAK

Phnom penh

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.

Dinner MENU

Tasting menu for the month of June 2022

Our tasting menus change regularly to ensure we make the most of Cambodia’s freshest seasonal produce and depending on the availability at the market.

We don’t offer ‘à la carte, however, vegetarians and vegans are most welcome

*Please alert us in advance if you have any particular dietary requirements. Our regular menu may contain nuts, pork, or seafood, but with advance notice we can accommodate those who cannot eat these foods.

However, because small amounts of garlic and chili are fundamental to Cambodian cuisine, we regret that we are unable to offer a menu that does not include those ingredients.

In addition, please note that Cambodian food contains fish sauce and other fish products in most dishes. If you must avoid fish, we recommend arranging in advance for a vegetarian menu.
