The best cold beers in Siem Reap by far. The menu is brilliant and the food lives up to expectations. The corn is to die for.

The food is good and the owners are doing a lot to help the youth of the city. Try the Trey Grauhomme (Red Fish ) cooked in Coconut milk

This was the last restaurant we ate at in siem reap - it was excellent food and a great experience. Food was so reasonably priced that we used what we had left in our budget to buy a meal for a street kid (which is also on the menu). Shouldn't every restaurant offer this?

Good simple tasty food. Bit hard to find but well worth it. Food was very tasty and well presented with good portion sizes for the price.

What a great place, supporting the kids who need it most. If this was about ethics it would get 5/5 The food was good, a nice selection of Khmer dishes, but service and atmosphere weren't quite all there (it wasn't very busy as there was a parade event on in town). Overall there's nothing wrong here and I'd recommend everyone... More

We went to this restaurant thanks to the recommendation of the Lonely Planet. It is located on a quiet part of Siem Reap. The food was excellent so was the service. We tried many different dishes and all of them was excellent. This place helps young adults to have a job and the profit is distributed to other local NGOs.... More

Came here with friends and we all had really good meals. Only wish we had ordered more dishes so we could have tried more of the menu. Service was very good.

Ate here twice and some of the dishes were excellent but others just so-so and while the set-up is laudable 'not-for-profit' is not an excuse for on/off quality as other places in Siem Reap prove. Try it, it could be good but it may not.

The restaurant was pretty packed when we arrived. They asked another couple if we could squeeze into their table with them and all agreed that it was fine. We had a fantastic time and really enjoyed the impromptu "double date." The atmosphere of the entire restaurant was incredibly friendly and the food was fantastic. Expect to make new friends over...

On my second trip to Siem Reap, I couldn't possibly not return to Green Star! The food is simply delicious - all home cooked and authentic Khmer. I particularly enjoy the starters, especially the corn kernels and the sesame bites. Other favourites are the frog and the pork and shrimp croquettes. There are lots of items to choose from and...
