What we say: 4.5 stars

Few restaurants generate such a stir of anticipation when they open, and fewer yet such consensus: Cuisine Wat Damnak is amazing.

The weekly changing set menus are dedicated to bringing you Cambodian food, but this food is so good it transcends boundaries, and the owner/chef, Joannes Riviere, and his wife, Carole Salmon, are determined to make this one of the most memorable evenings you'll have in Siem Reap.

The indoor dining room is elegant, without being fussy, or you can sit outside near the herb garden or upstairs in a relaxed dining-lounge area. The focus is on fish, but those with divergent preferences are also amply catered for, especially if you call in advance.

The food is so fresh, and the flavours so compelling, you'll be dying to come back again. In a mark of the deepest respect from the owners, the wine list is incredibly good value.

Tell your tuk tuk driver to go to the Golden Banana Hotel, turn left opposite the lane entrance to Golden Banana, and keep going for half a mile. The blue lit sign on the left hand side will guide you in.
