Vegan Restaurants in Siem Reap

Updated August 2021:

Due to COVID-19 pressing the pause button on tourism, Siem Reap has suffered in so many ways. One of these ways is that each of the below vegan restaurants have all had to close. Green-Go Garden was the last to shut their doors, remaining open until February 2021. It’s sad to see them all go but rest assured, this brand new post shows there is still plenty of vegan food in Siem Reap for you to enjoy.

At a time when veganism is taking over the world and everywhere you look there are vegan options we thought we’d look at the restaurants in Siem Reap that are 100% vegan. Not to say there aren’t plenty of incredible restaurants and hotels in Siem Reap offering delicious plant based food as part of their main menu as there truly is. We’re blessed to call Siem Reap home for a number of reasons and one of those is all of the vegan delights on offer. OK so here they are, the 4 vegan restaurants in Siem Reap that are leading the way in this little vegan paradise that we call home, these aren’t reviews and we’re not going to tell you our favourite, it’s just a simple list (in alphabetical order) of where they are and what they serve:

Green-Go Garden

Located in the tourist centre of Siem Reap on Night Market Street, Green-Go Garden offer a menu that includes pizzas and pasta, a variety of Mexican dishes and other menu items include falafel curry and tofu amok. The fresh juices and smoothies are very good and they have a selection of vegan wine and vegan beer available too. They operate a charitable programme that makes a donation to a local NGO each month with a percentage of a chosen food item going to their partner for the month.

Opening Times: 9am-10.30pm every day

Mahob Buos

Their new location is in Wat Svay Village on the road to Tonle Sap, there’s a map on their Facebook page. The menu at Mahob Buos includes vegan versions of traditional Cambodian cuisine including lok lak, lot cha and amok. They have a good selection of mock meat dishes for those with a craving and the money generated goes towards supporting community projects including yoga and vegan food for kids.

Opening Times: 11am-9pm every day, closed Friday

Roots Cafe & Gallery

The newest arrival on the vegan Siem Reap scene is Roots Cafe & Gallery which is located in a pleasant and relaxed garden setting. The food is a fusion of Khmer, Indonesia and Western cuisines in line with the background of the owners. The organic tomato bisque served with a melted ‘mozzarella’ and pesto sandwich is outstanding and the Indonesian sisig served with vegan mayo was also very tasty.

Opening Times: 11am-2.30pm and 5.30pm-9pm, closed Monday and Tuesday

Situated in Kandal Village, Vibe offers a menu packed with salads, smoothie bowls and other healthy and nutritious plant based cuisine. It’s a cool spot to hang out for a long, lazy lunch and it also has a variety of items for takeaway if you’re in a hurry. The prices are slightly higher than the other vegan restaurants in Siem Reap but they still offer good value for money as the food is delicious.

Opening Times: 7.30am-9pm every day

    I am so sad that I don’t see Chamkar here., which is the first Vegetarian Restaurant here in Siem reap and Chamkar’s first menu when Nicolas opened in 2008 has been already 100% vegan because we cook traditional Khmer food with local ingredients, which exclude milk and butter. In 2019, we had the burger dish! But now the burger has been removed from the menu last September because we couldn’t find good vegan bread. Nicolas moved back to Siem Reap last September after closing the 8- year- Chamkar in Taipei, Taiwan. It’s a brand new Chamkar. And Now we are 100% vegan restaurant.
    Please come and try’ our food again and have a glass of our vegan- friendly wine.

    Don’t be sad Lucy, let’s add Chamkar to the list ASAP! It’s great to hear that Chamkar is now 100% vegan and once we are back in Siem Reap we will visit for sure. Keep up the good work and look forward to meeting soon…
