We spent hours wrinkling in the pool playing water volleyball and meeting amazing travelers. The food was tasty and affordable. The refreshing fruit smoothies, however, were better at the family restaurant next door. Beer at the hostel was cheap and cold which is always a plus. The beds were relatively comfortable and the air-conditioning worked great.
We loved the helpful and friendly staff that worked there. When are you going to Cambodia? For reservations, book as early in advance as you can.

Best would be days in advance!! Ah bummer… to hear that Lucy. Navigating the food scene in Cambodia is not easy!
If you plan on going back again, definitively take the guide or share with others who are going. You are making my mouth water just reading this and looking at those pictures. I loved cambodia but always opted for street food as I was on my 6 month trip when I visited so a bit low on budget. Thanks for sharing.

There does seem to be some alignment. Thanks Becky and hope you make it back to Cambodia soon.
Your post is inviting me to visit Cambodia soon. Such a wonderful historical place, the degustacion is certainly a bonus of the trip. Cambodia is a beautiful country that is rich in history. Indeed an experience at Cuisine Wat Damnak is a delicious way to round out that experience. That sounds like such an interesting experience?
Does the chef have a vegetarian or non-shellfish option? Actually, the chef is very accommodating and can modify the menu based on dietary requirements. The only catch is that you have to book in advance and confirm any menu changes. The chef cooks with local and fresh ingredients so making your needs known in advance is really helpful. Glad you enjoyed the article.
Amazing list and thank you for sharing….
