We pride ourselves on dishes that showcase the healthy and aromatic vegetables of the lowlands and the highlands.
“Forest is founded on the principle that the beautiful world of sub-tropical vegetables need to be loved and appreciated by everyday people to motivate preservation.”
“My hope is to keep healthy and aromatic Cambodian dishes as the main concept of our local cuisine. Come and see why.”
“Ancient Cambodian cuisine is probably most like food you will find at Forest than in most restaurants. In the past, the flavor and nutrition of seasonal and wild vegetables was key.”
“Vegetarians need this kind of food. Meat eaters will respect this kind of food. And younger generations will actually appreciate this kind of food.”
Our menu features a range of local dishes and new inspirations that emphasize seasonal, local, and wild vegetables and edible flowers.
Sarann comes from a pedigree of homemakers who survived the Khmer Rouge and learned how to appreciate the bounty of the wild - both for its nutrition and for its flavor. Her style is to make Khmer food familiar to locals and accessible to visitors.
