This restaurant was good, but didn't knock my socks off. They offer a tasty although limited vegetarian menu, mostly curries with brown rice. The waitstaff is adorable and professional. The atmosphere isn't stunning, but the restaurant is clean and in good order.

We visited as a family with young children, so I was hesitant that there may not be enough on the menu that the kids would eat, even though they are a bit adventurous. The kids were super happy with the lemon pasta and crispy vegetables which were delicious! The adults had the fresh spring rolls and the 2 curries on... More

And the tamarind juice is wonderful! I was nervous about Chamkar because it's in the heart of the Pub Street/Night Market morass. I felt like it would be loud but I was craving more vegetarian options as many restaurants have few. It's actually pretty peaceful inside, especially if you sit upstairs. If you snag the balcony you get a great... More

We're eating here on the first night of Chinese New Year. Siem Reap is heaving! The alley way in which Chamkar is located is packed with tourists. There's an outside terrace, indoor seating downstairs - all full, so we're on the first floor, just five or so tables, friendly, good service and a bit quieter. We recommend our starters. Six...

This restaurant was amazing! So amazing that I wanted to ask them if I could buy a jar of their wonderful dip or sauce! Wedding day- fresh spring rolls, mushroom pot,... a number of unforgettable dishes! Give them a try even if your are not a vegetarian person you might change your mind! ;-)

This was by far the best tasting food I ate in my 2.5 months in Cambodia. And no, it wasn't just good "for Cambodia". I would be impressed by food that consistently tasted this good in any restaurant in the West. In fact, I would go as far as to say that this is some of the best food I... More

Chamkar, located in the midst of the craziness of the Market, is an excellent restaurant for vegetarians and vegans. Every dish we had was well-prepared and presented. They know what they're doing when it comes to food. I had some disappointing veg meals in other restaurants in Siem Reap so it was a nice treat to have food so well-seasoned... More

First of all I have to say that I am not vegetarian, but then I must say that at Chamkar I had one of the best meal in Siem Reap. Fresh food, very tasty, lovely presentation. The place is very nice and the small terrace is just lovely. Recommended even if you are not vegetarian, you won't be disappointed! The... More
