Wondering about where to go in Siem Reap that you can be confident about the food, offers fantastic value and you are doing something to support the local community then go to the Green Star. We were recetly at the end of our tour to Vietnam and Cambodia and had our own time for a couple of days in Siem Reap. We heard great things from our guides about Green Star and eight of us went for dinner. Run by an Aussie for the benfit of local children's education we were more than satisfied. Food was good and prices were really cheap. Well worth the visit.

I was amazed about the ravings for this place, it is a good cause seems to be, a GOOD CAUSE, yes? Understood? A GOOOOOD CAUSE!!... but making this place the best for food in Siem Reap is a rip off, sorry guys! there are many much nicer and better places to eat in Siem Reap, here you will seat in a porch outdoor (no indoor, no aircon, toilets just beneath the kitchen, no running water in toilets, seeming to be recurrent from the owner s note ) on cheap chairs around about 5 small tables. Service is kind but a little amateurish and dishes are very simple, not comparable in taste to anything you can have in thailand for the same price and settings, not bad but mostly tasteless, beer is cold and that s what saved the evening for me! go if you are in a backpacker mood.

I ate at this restaurant in Siem Reap today for lunch. The street that the restaurant is on is not the best and the restaurant didn't appear much from the outside, however the food options were wide, food quite good and there were some funky tunes being played in the background. The restaurant is practically situated on a T intersection, so lots of traffic to watch if you sit towards the front. I had the Khmer curry which tasted good. Wanted it spicier so asked for some fresh chilli and the staff quickly obliged. Also had a fruit drink which tasted great!

I've been to most of the restaurants in Siem Reap, and Green Star is definitely well above average. Cozy atmosphere and a helpful owner. Pretty good food too!
