Vegan Restaurants in Phnom Penh
Updated October 2019
Vegan options? Vegan friendly? Vegan menu? We are currently blessed with new plant based eating opportunities available at every turn. Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia is no exception; you can eat vegan cupcakes with your almond milk latte, followed by Ethiopian vegan cuisine for lunch before heading for a vegan pizza or vegan hot dog washed down with a vegan friendly craft beer. But what about vegan restaurants in Phnom Penh that are 100% vegan? Those establishments that go ‘above and beyond’ to ensure that we don’t have to worry when we order and where the staff fully understand what it means when we ask for vegan food. There are currently 4 fully vegan restaurants in Phnom Penh and this short blog post tells you what they’re called and what you can expect when you visit. We’re not telling you our favourite, you will have to make your own mind up, we’re just telling you where to go and support these plant based pioneers!
Located in a courtyard setting and close to Aeon Mall, Bong Bonlai serves a “fusion of Mediterranean and Asian flavours”. We made a quick visit on our last trip to Phnom Penh and enjoyed our food and also the surroundings, especially the avocado and kidney beans on toast which were delicious. Bong Bonlai is the perfect spot if you want somewhere to stay that is vegan friendly as they are part of YK Art House which has a selection of rooms available.
Opening Times: 7.30am-2.30pm every day and 5pm-8.30pm (closed Mondays)
Masala Dosa Street Kitchen
Check out Masala Dosa Street Kitchen which you will find close to the popular riverside area and the Royal Palace. The name tells you everything you need to know about this place, they serve dosas, in fact they serve lots of dosas as their menu has page after page of creative dosa options all of them 100% vegan and 100% delicious. There are other items too including vegan burgers and vegan omelettes with everything prepared with passion and plenty of spice.

Sacred Lotus Cafe
Sacred Lotus Cafe is the newest addition to the vegan scene in Phnom Penh and is located close to Russian Market. Owned and managed by a lovely English / Khmer couple (Krishan and Neth) you will find a good selection of both Khmer and Western vegan food. After meeting 3 years ago, they finally decided to follow their dreams by opening both a vegan cafe and a vegan guesthouse under the same roof. As well as a warm welcome and super tasty vegan food you can enjoy yoga or meditation classes and every Tuesday they offer all plant based coffees for just $1.
Opening Times: 7.30pm-8pm every day
With another outlet in Siem Reap, Vibe have been at the forefront of the growing vegan scene in Cambodia since they first opened their doors in 2015. Their plant based cuisine is creative, healthy, vibrant and delicious and you can be sure to enjoy whatever you choose from their extensive menu. From vegan pancakes, bagels and Buddha Bowls for breakfast to tacos, burgers and raw zucchini pasta for dinner there’s something for everyone here.
