Women of Khmer Kitchen

eena is one half of the force responsible for Khmer Kitchen, she once remarked and what is now an inside joke,

 and there could be a lot of truth behind the  remark that follows the earlier statement too but we’ll not delve on it today.

She’s not there just to bring about an inclusivity to the top management at Khmer Kitchen, she’s truly responsible for the way the restaurant ‘feels’ and is experienced by its patrons, even long after they’ve left the property. How they (patrons) interact with the spaces and how she guides through the workings of Khmer Kitchen and thus ensuring that they’re always flowing about like good energy ought to.

“Superwoman, Wonder Woman and multitude plaques likewise, that put a woman on a pedestal. Society pushes on to us a tremendous pressure to perform all our roles with great finesse and abilities.”

Veena was instrumental in bringing in the vibrant interiors, hand-picked Cambodian artefacts, hand-made artworks that currently adorn the walls at Khmer Kitchen.

She’s very nonchalant about her work though, you prod her albeit more on her thoughts, design processes and some such, the best you can get out of her is …

Succinct, and to the point, much like her.

And that’s what the Principal Architect of Khmer Kitchen has to say about Veena’s contribution to how Khmer Kitchen looks and lives. She’s walking a tightrope, oh so gracefully. There’s a hint of raw passion wherever requisite and other times, she stands tall with her acumen and seems to have an innate eye for details like few do.

We celebrate her and the women of Khmer Kitchen for what they do, every single day since we opened.

Khmer Kitchen’s a path-breaking, one-of-a kind & the very first Cambodian restaurant in Bengaluru borne out of travel, love, & passion for all things Cambodia.
