Chan­rey Tree

Cambodia Insight - - CONTENTS -

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.
