Fodor's Review

One of the most unique restaurants in Siem Reap, Cuisine Wat Damnak offers a real journey for the taste buds with its five- or six-course set menus (the only options available). Beyond the apparent ambition for trendy sophistication in the indoor sala and romantic garden, the concept here is Cambodian food remodeled into creative modern dishes by French chef Joannes Riviere. Exclusively local, fresh, and seasonal ingredients are a top priority for Riviere, whose knowledge of the area allows him to source ingredients that are otherwise not easy to come by, such as shellfish unique to the Mekong and Tonle Sap lake, fresh lotus seeds, wild lily stems, and edible flowers. If you're interested in learning more about Riviere's culinary philosophy and techniques, you can buy a copy of his cookbook here.
