Challenge your assumptions about vegetarian cuisine

With an abundance of exotic fresh fruits and vegetables widely available at local markets, there are a few inviting vegetarian dining options in Siem Reap.

Located just off Siem Reap’s Old Market in the Pub Street Alley, Chamkar Vegetarian Restaurant offers gourmet vegetarian cuisine in a cosy setting. The name ‘Chamkar’ translate to field or garden (of vegetables), and with an array of dishes made by fresh local vegetables, it is a healthy and slightly different take on traditional Cambodian cuisine.

Singing Tree Cafe has a range of vegetarian dishes and doubles as a community center where a well of information about volunteering opportunities and community projects are available.

Indian restaurants such as Maharajah, Little India, Curry Walla, East India also offer affordable vegetarian dishes.
