Chamkar is not just best vegetarian restaurant in Siem Reap, but it is best restaurant in Siem Reap. It is so cool how they can produce vegetarian as authentic as typical Khmer dishes.

It was ok. There was not much to choose from, and for what you pay you don't get an amazing dish. It was an ok meal, in an ok place. Didn't hate it, didn't love it.

I found this restaurant nestled in the side lanes near Pub Street. The service was good, the food was amazing. Everything on the menu is vegetarian and some of the best I've eaten. I ordered a pumpkin and pineapple curry with peanuts. It was a delicious, not too spicy, with slow cooked pumpkin. You can tell the ingredients are fresh... More

found this little gem by chance. Service excellent, very attentive and happy to recommend when we couldn't decide. Quality food for the price. I think their success lies in the fact that instead of having lots and lots to choose from, they have a selection of dishes that they do very, very well. We went for aubergine lover, spring rolls,...

We thoroughly enjoyed the Khmer-influenced vegetarian meals. The wedding day dip is especially tasty. We also tried the egg plant and oysters (mushrooms). Good, complimentary flavours. This was one of the best meals we ate in Siem Riep. The atmosphere is cozy and the menu is small with just enough variety.

Great place to try out local Cambodian food without the concerns of meat (if you're vegetarian) or shrimps (if you're allergic to it. It is a base for all their curries). However, watch out for the peanuts - they are very generous with it. Food service was a bit slow, but there was a disclaimer saying that each dish was... More

As a vegetarian traveler you can easily get sick of eating the stock vegetable and rice or vegetables and noodles that are offered in most restaurants. So, our visit to Chamkar was a welcomed relief from the monotony of the vegetable rice/noodle dish combinations. The lady who served us was very friendly and helpful in recommending dishes. The restaurant was... More
