Abandoned for more than a decade, a traditional Khmer wooden house was selected for an amazing transformation project. Rented by a local Khmer with a vision, no one wanted to take on this design project deeming it impossible. However V-Asia designs shared the owner’s vision and set about transforming a modest abandoned house into one of the most successful restaurants in Siem Reap. The team retained the original design and utilized local materials such as bamboo, khmer tiles and traditional Cambodian art to create this beautiful restaurant. Keeping in line with the surrounding nature along the riverfront, Chanrey Tree Restaurant has landscaped tropical gardens and a luxurious yet homely feel.
