Siem Reap’s restaurant scene has long lagged behind its hip hotel scene. But now, things are changing and CHANREY TREE is the latest effort at raising Siem Reap’s culinary standard beyond the usual tourist fare of Pub St. It has been well received since opening in mid-2013.
Owner and local tourism and hospitality veteran Kann Soan has focused on creating a concise menu of Khmer dishes in a beautiful setting. While most restaurants in tourist saturated Siem Reap can’t resist including a pizza or a steak on their menus, Kann has stayed true to the concept of a modern Khmer dining experience that goes beyond the Amok and Lok Lak standards.
Cool and contemporary, Chanrey Tree is the new face of Khmer cuisine, combining a stylish setting with expressive presentation while retaining the essentials of traditional Cambodia cooking. Try chicken in honey, rice brandy, young jackfruit and lemongrass.
The wine list ranges upwards from $25 a bottle and includes European and New World offerings.
The setting is a perfect complement to the food, putting a modern spin on a traditional Khmer-style restaurant. Indoor and outdoor dining are available, with some very cool polished concrete benches and tables at the front, lots of greenery, and a nice open kitchen.
Located in the heart of Siem Reap along the riverside, CHANREY TREE combines the amazing taste of traditional Khmer ingredients with local, professional and charming staff to provide a unique Cambodian dining experience.
It’s a far cry from the racket of Pub St, and Siem Reap’s the better for that.
