I am traveling in SE Asia for the next 4.5 months and found this restaurant near "The Old Market." This is an excellent restaurant with fresh ingredients and leans toward those with Vegan and Vegetarian tastes. Lonely planet says the name Chamkar translates as ‘farm’ and the ingredients must be coming from a pretty impressive organic vegetable supplier given the... More

We went here on a recommendation and we were not disappointed in the least. Very tasty & good portions. Will be going back before we leave.

There are two restaurants of chamkar - one near pub st and the other next to Angkor home hotel (5 min drive with a tuk tuk)! We went to both and the food was excellent and very creative! The stuff were so nice and especially the place next to Angkor home hotel is amazingly beautiful! You'll sit in an open... More

My girlfriend and I had dinner there on the last night of our recent visit to Siem Reap. When we found this restaurant I quickly checked the ratings on Tripadvisor and they were spot on. The food is very yummy and super affordable. I think my main was $4 if I recall that correctly. We've had the wedding dip as... More

I was travelling with three vegetarian teenagers so this restaurant was much appreciated. The food was excellent and the menu very varied so we could go there two nights in a row and have completely different food. Very reasonable. The only downside was the slow service.

We first visited the cosy & classy restaurant in Khum Svay Dangkum. Thinking it would be a very expensive restaurant, we were dead wrong... the price is comparable with the lunch you would have on the Angkor temples tour! We had Amok Puff, Mushroom Pot and Re-discovering tofu dishes. Both are very original and natural in taste. As for the... More

I was very impressed with our meal. We were a group of five so we were able to order many different dishes to share. Everything was delicious - and this is coming from a New York foodie. The wedding day dip was a standout along with a green Thai basil pesto appetizer served with veggies. The monsoon salad as many... More

We visited the restaurant which is across the street from the Blue Pumpkin on Pub Street. A small restaurant in the alley with sitting upstairs as well. Food was okay and I had anticipated better after the rave reviews on tripadvisor. We had the spring rolls and 5 entrees to share and while the taste was good, we had expected... More

This review is for the Chamkar restaurant one street over from Pub Street (I think it's Street 9). The Monsoon Salad is delicious. We came back a second day just to have it. We also enjoyed the Wedding Day Dip, curries and spicy soup. They have good variety on their menu, and the service is friendly and efficient. The restaurant... More
