OMG! This food was so, so, so very tasty! My husband and kids were dubious because even though we generally don't eat meat, they get nervous about going to a "vegetarian" restaurant. That nervousness was gone at first taste. Can the vegetables get any fresher? Can the flavors get more innovative and perfect? I don't think so. The dishes on... More

I sometimes like to choose vegetarian restaurants because they make more effort to get flavour into the dishes without relying on meat. I ordered the aubergine starter which was ok. The bread was good and the veg dipping stick we're fine. The main course was a stirring curry. This was promised to be thick and creamy. It was a disappointment... More

Nice small place, difficult to find, but definitely worth a visit. It's in the heart of pub street alley Food was awesome , ambience nice , portions generous. We had tamarind juice, glass noodles , mixed vegetable curry in coconut base, this was served with brown rice.

Beautiful food and great prices - the mango salad was especially amazing. Note that there are two Chamkars and they have different menus, so the photos on Trip Advisor might not be on the menu depending on which restaurant you visit. Also note that the address on Trip Advisor is for the Original Chamkar but when you click it, it... More

This restaurant is great. I've never written a review for a restaurant but felt compelled to since I went there twice it was so good. The wedding day dip is delicious and a must have. The pumpkin pineapple dish was amazing. The flavors were so great. If I lived here it would be that favorite restaurant I'd bring friends and... More

We came out of master feet ( 1 hour massage for $6 was a amazing) looking or a healthy dinner that was light & local. The owners of Chamkar are definitely skilled in Vegan / Vegetarian food & we loved the eggplant curry and fresh rice paper rolls ( dipping sauce was divine) . The style was definately Khmer but...

Chanced upon Chamkar while wandering looking for a restaurant late in SR. Not vegetarians but premises and menu looked nice. It was quiet due to the late hour but a departing customer advised us it was great and was right. Very tasty with authentic Khmer flavours and at very reasonable prices. Recommended.

Easily one of the best vegetarian/vegan meals I have had. They are incredibly accommodating with any dietary requirements. The service is friendly, portions are very generous, and it's at a great location. Definitely go for the tapioca and banana dessert!
