This is my second time to Cambodia and my second time back to Green Star. Another 2 dishes that I've tried off the menu, another 2 that I would go back for. Love the place. Love the cause. Love the food. Why not try it for yourself?

It is a very small, nice, local restaurant which supports children. The food is local, basic but tasty and I would go back just to support the great cause!

The food and service was excellent and so cheap. I loved that the kids who work there come from Green Gecko as well. Order the corn!

Wonderful Khmer food, great staff. This is one of the best food values in Siem Reap - and the restaurant supports one of the most innovative community programs in the Siem Reap area: Green Gecko. Worth a visit for the food but if you are there in the evening, try to speak with the proprietor Doug, who does outreach work... More

Great cause and food is probably ok. However, staff barely speaks english and not friendly at all... You have better options in Siem Reap for sure!

Visited this restaurant in June after finding out it was set up for non profit to raise money for green gecko - an amazing school and charity that educates and looks after vulnerable children teaching them tradition, values and skills in English language and ict - good food and for a great cause - please go!
