Banlle is in a peaceful garden setting which also has a modern AC restaurant downstairs and open air seating on the balcony. The menu covers Khmer and Western vegetarian food that is mostly vegan and absolutely delicious, since the recent refurb this is fast becoming our favourite spot in Siem Reap due to the setting, food and ambiance.

Chamkar has a branch in the heart of the popular Pub Street area as well as a more beautiful and spacious restaurant a little out of the town centre. The menu contains traditional Khmer food and is mainly vegan so there’s a good selection to eat your way through.

F*ck You Meatlovers $$
F*ck You Meatlovers
130 Thmor Meas Road
Opening Times: 12-10pm Thursday to Monday
With a name like F*ck You Meatlovers this new addition to the veggie scene in Siem Reap certainly turned some heads.

In addition, the food is very good indeed with vegetarian and vegan options including lots of tempe and a huge selection of burgers.

Vitking House $
Opening Times: 8am-8pm every day
Vitking House is a local 100% veggie restaurant where you can get your mock meat fix also a selection of rice, soups and noodle dishes, the hot plate with noodles is pretty tasty as is the hot plate with tofu and green veg, check out the mushroom skewers or fried as they are amazing and we can’t get enough of them. There are some Western style dishes too, but in our opinion they are best avoided…
Yuan Sheng Vegetable Restaurant $
Yuan Sheng Vegetable Restaurant
Lok Tanuey Road
Opening Times: 7am-9pm every day
Cheap, tasty, local dishes that are nearly all vegan apart from egg noodles in a few dishes; the staff are very helpful, the AC is a welcome retreat and everything we’ve eaten has been delicious.

Zhu Lin Xuan House $
Zhu Lin Xuan House
34 Bamboo Street
Opening Times: 8am-9pm every day
Friendly family run restaurant that has recently opened. The food is simple but tasty and very reasonably priced with many dishes costing only $1.50 and served with a clear veggie soup. All guests receive a complimentary pot of tea which can be served with ice if requested. We enjoyed a veggie fried rice and fried mushrooms both of which were very tasty indeed. All food is vegetarian but some dishes include egg or milk, the staff spoke very good English so could easily explain the ingredients. We suggested small stickers on the menu showing which was vegan and offered to help them with this. Another great value for money option in Siem Reap. Clean and bright interior and free WIFI available.

ARTillery Cafe has a great selection of vegan food including some raw dishes too. If you love raw cake, zoodles, raw pizza and juices then this place is for you but they also do a good vegan burger and some other healthy vegan options that are cooked like pulled jackfruit tacos.

A great option for somewhere to stay in Siem Reap if you are vegan is the Baby Elephant Boutique Hotel where you can eat a choice of not one, but two tasty vegan burgers plus delicious spring rolls, vegan pastas, tofu ‘fish’ and chips or even have a leisurely breakfast of tofu scramble and home made potato hash before relaxing by the pool.

HAVEN is the place to go if you want to eat good food whilst supporting a great local cause.

It’s very exciting that Malis, which is considered by some to be one of the best restaurants in Siem Reap now has an all vegetarian menu which is mostly vegan, since opening, their menu has only offered a few veggie side dishes so it is great news that Chef Luu Meng and his team have now decided to introduce a vegetarian menu.

Vietnamese Coffee & Noodle Soup $
Vietnamese Coffee & Noodle Soup
461 Taphul Road
Opening Times: 11am-4pm and 6pm-9pm every day, closed Sunday
One of the best bowls of vegan pho we’ve ever eaten and believe us when we say we’ve eaten it many times all over Vietnam. The stock is made fresh and is 100% vegan with no MSG. When the bowl of steaming goodness arrives you will be amazed at the amount of vegetables, tofu, noodles and tofu skin that Emma has managed to cram into the bowl. A ‘small’ bowl at just $2.50 is possibly the best value vegan meal in Siem Reap. If you think you can finish a large bowl, good luck to you!
Vegan Fine Dining in Siem Reap
Visitors to Siem Reap have the opportunity to dine at the highly acclaimed Cuisine Wat Damnak which is the only Cambodian restaurant to have ever made the prestigious ‘San Pellegrino Top 50 Restaurants in Asia List’.

Vegan Shopping in Siem Reap
For those of you planning to stay a little longer and with access to a kitchen we hope these spots help you create some home cooked vegan delights. There are 2 excellent organic fruit and veg shops and they are both worth checking out. Happy + Co is located in the Wat Bo area and Svay Chek in Kandal Village. Both have a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables and also a variety of dried goods too. Svay Chek also has a choice of dishes that are freshly cooked each day, with vegan options available.
Finding what you want in the supermarkets can be a challenge as items are often out of stock but at the moment, Angkor Supermarket on Road 6 is leading the way with vegan butter, products from Linda McCartney, Quorn and Amy’s Kitchen. They also have Alpro vegan ice cream in 3 different flavours! There is a zero waste shop at Babel Guesthouse that’s is excellent for everything from insect repellent to shampoo and soaps, supporting them is supporting a cleaner and greener Cambodia which we love.
