Sad is not open

I'm currently in SR, and I heard so many good things about this restaurant, after reading the reviews I checked the website and it says is closed until further notice. Best wishes to the owner in his recovery. Maybe next time :)

I love green star and have been many times in the past. The food is great the service friendly and the profits go to a good cause. Unfortunately the restaurant is currently CLOSED. I have discovered that it might open at some stage in the future, so i wait for that time.

Manager thinks because it is a "not for profit" that you owe him something when you walk through the door. Save your money and your time and support more ethical and well run NGO establishments such as Friends, or Haven. Just because it is a not for profit funded by a pensioner is no excuse to sit around and be... More

A most interesting review some 10 - 11 months after you visited Green Star. I note you rated Value & Food highly but all you chose to do was make derogatory remarks about me????

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
