It's tucked away above what appears to be just a local crafts shop but the restaurant upstairs is delightful with a cathedral height ceiling and pictures on the walls of the local youngsters it's backing organisation helps. Though the menu is limited, it covers most...needs a visitor to Battambang would have and the staff are polite and friendly.More

After reading the rave reviews about this place, we were very underwhelmed when we visited Lonely Tree Cafe. Whether or not the reviews are skewed because they assist with a great cause in Cambodia could be a factor, but our experience didn’t blow us away....We ordered two Chicken Pad Thai for $4.00 each as well as a 1.5L water for $1.50. The prices are reasonable, however the Pad Thai was so bland and flavourless, and to be quite honest it was a bit sloppy. We ate it because we were hungry but it wasn’t anything special at all, and we’ve had much better Pad Thai all over Asia. Perhaps our experience was a one-off but we ate in so many other fantastic places in Battambang that I would recommend skipping this one.More

Probably the most significant fact is that I had brunch here and then returned the same evening for supper. While the food is excellent and good value. It was the decor, ambiance and friendly service which made it stand out. It is set in a...fascinating street. Set above a clothing / craft shop. The restaurant is decorated with an arty/cool/organic vibe with lovely photographs on the walls. The balcony is the prime spot. The menu is a good mixture of Cambodian and western. The western has a Mediterranean and Mexican slant. There is good espresso coffee and draught beer. Perfect! Thank you!More

An Excellent Restaurant. If you are looking for a casual lunch with friends The Lonely Tree is the place to go too. Situated above their not for profit shop that supports artists and crafters from the Battambang region, The Lonely Tree Café’s vibe, menu, food...and service are simply excellent. The menu caters for everyone with our diverse tastes. the food is carefully and expertly prepared and the service is prompt and delivered with a sunny smile. Every request was handled with the utmost care and efficiency from the staff of local people. The price is very reasonable and would high recommend many a return visit. Would definitely go back again and again. Can not recommend highly enough.More
