Cuisine Wat Damnak

Siem Reap

Housed in a traditional Cambodian wooden house in the heart of Siem Reap’s Wat Damnak village, Cuisine Wat Damnak offers three distinct dining experiences. Downstairs, the modern dining room is a stylish, air-conditioned space decorated with local artwork and handicrafts. The fan-cooled upstairs retains the wooden house’s traditional Cambodian country charm, with an ambiance that complements the menu. Outside, the softly lit garden is the perfect place to appreciate balmy Cambodian evenings, surrounded by lush tropical greenery and local herbs. 

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

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.

*Please alert us in advance if you have any particular dietary requirements. Our regular menu may contain nuts, pork, or seafood.

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.
