Cuisine Wat Damnak is worth the visit. Ambiance, service and, especially, food are all top notch. Cuisine is imaginative, with Chef Joannès Rivière offering some very creative dishes that blend local cuisine with French technique. We would go back.

We made a reservation 3 months in advance in order to make sure we get a table on a specific night. The food was beautiful and so intricately executed with lots of care. You could tell that the chef really took pride in producing those dishes. The prawn soup/broth was wow...Flavours were unique and simply flawless. Thank you for the... More

We were in Siem Reap during US holiday of Thanksgiving and chose CWD as the restaurant for our big meal. Food was sooooo good! Nice variety of flavors and perfectly sized portions. I would definitely eat there again next time I am in Siem Reap!

Was told that this was one of Asian's 50 best restaurants but it should be one of Asia's worst restaurants. The food is awful! Lacked taste, salt, spices and creativity. They only have a tasting menu and it was NOT good. Portion sizes were too big and the meal did not flow. The service was mediocre at best. The ambience... More

If you want traditional Cambodian flavours then don't go here straight away. If you want creative interesting food as an alternative one night then book and head straight there. From a British perspective the food is also very good value for money for 'high end' dining. We went for the vegetarian set menu. Though not every dish was amazing the... More

wow! just wow! we had such a good time there. Hard to get a reservation but you can come at around 2030 and they'll probably let you in. really good food for a good price (28USD for 6 course meal). Fish were divine and very interesting food combinations. Best place to eat in Siem Reap

We had dinner in the garden on a lovely evening – after some rainy evenings. They had two menus with 5 or 6 courses each. We enjoyed the different dishes with their unique combination and use of local fresh goods. E.g a pork and calamari soup was a first for us. The service was friendly and quite speedy. But requesting... More

The interior is very nice and cozy. However, the service is terrible! The owner is extremely rude and impolite. Do NOT recommend this place!
