I thought it would be open because of the latest review but alas it is still closed. No indication as to when they will reopen. Sign says a month or two but has no start date!

We enjoyed the food very much! We ordered in advance because we were a big group, and we only had to wait a while before it was served. The owner was even the one who served it to us. Don't expect a high end restaurant. The place was open air with plastic chair. But we don't mind, I actually like... More

On our current trip to Siem Reap, we attempted to go to Green Star the last two nights after reading the many excellent reviews. We visited the website to be sure we had the accurate hours. Finally, we looked on the facebook page, which has a post on September 1st that states, in part, "Green Star is currently CLOSED....... ....We... More

Avee & I are sorry you were not ale to enjoy a green Star experience & the fact you visited us on two occasions. We are closed for a break & also renovations. We do have a sign on the gate to that effect, but perhaps you missed it on your first visit. Our Web Page also has a message... More

This is a great little restaurant that serves khmer food. Other than the delicious food, this place has two big positives: its for a good cause (helping out locals) and it is well away from the main tourist area!

Very very nice restaurant, away from Pub Street in a more quiet (and nicer) part of Siem Reap. Very good value, fresh and well prepared local food. Warm and friendly welcoming by Aussie owner Doug. A must do restaurant in Siem Reap.

I'm sad I didn't find this place earlier. Not only it is for a good cause, but it's also absolutely delicious, best khmer food I had in almost a month in Cambodia. While it seems really far from the "tourist" area of Siem Reap, it's actually quite quick to walk there from pub street through Art Market. If you plan... More

I went there with a volunteer group towards the end of our stay. It was a great place to eat and experience Cambodian food. The owner and his wife were really friendly and we had a great time. We drank beer from huge towers, ate tasty corn kernels and even had some frog! I would eat there again next time... More

The food here deserves 5 stars but be prepared for a little slower service. The pork with eggplant is incredible and so is the corn appetizer. We didn't have time to go for a second time but we would have because it was so awesome! This is a must try

I had the opportunity to see the Green Gecko project in operation. This project works with street kids getting them back on their feet by giving them an education, a home and nutritious food. I have worked with many similar programmes before and have yet to see one that clearly works as well as Green Gecko. These kids are happy,... More

One of the top 2 restaurants i've been to in seim-reap. Food is very nice, the two times I have been there and the 4-5 meals I have shared with the group. Eel is a little hard and amusing to eat due to all the bones! Lovely relaxed welcoming atmosphere and the place was clean. Greeted and had a chat... More
