This vegetarian restaurant is located in the bustling Alley that runs parallel to Pub Street. We had a peanut and mushroom dip with French bread, an eggplant dish and a red curry. The dip was delicious, though we had to ask for more bread as there wasn’t enough. I found the eggplant dish was a bit bland, and the curry... More

We went looking for this place and didn't know exactly how to get there, but were so glad we walked into an alley and ended up here in any case! It's somewhere behind Pub Street... :) The service was a bit slow, I think they make it from scratch. The waitress was very nice. She recommended a few items to... More

The food we good but few things made the whole experience less enjoyable. First the menu is quite narrow so there are not so many dishes to choose from which makes it harder to satisfy all tastes. Then the service was a bit slow. The things which was the most annoying was the rice. We were told we will get... More

Our second trip to Siem Reap saw our 4th visit to Chamkar. It didn't disappoint last trip and didn't disappoint this time either. The food is skillfully prepared and delicious. My wife has been a vegetarian for over 40 years and says this is some of the best vegetarian food she had had. Our friend even commented that it was... More

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.
