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

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!
