Vegan Restaurants in Siem Reap

Updated August 2022

Due to COVID-19 pressing the pause button on tourism, Siem Reap suffered in so many ways. One of these ways is that all four vegan restaurants that were operating pre-covid had to close. It was 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, this includes at the excellent Hey Bong :: The Healthy Secrets which is currently the only 100% vegan restaurant in Temple Town and you can read about below.

Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to join our Cambodia vegan tours!

Hey Bong

As the only 100% vegan restaurant currently open in Siem Reap, you really don’t want to miss out on Hey Bong. Not only because it’s the only vegan spot in Temple Town, but the food is creative and delicious, whilst the friendly team will certainly give you a very warm welcome. We love the cumin tofu noodles and the burger is pretty awesome too. In fact, everything we have had from the menu has been excellent, including this new ‘weekly special’ salad that we recently tried. Keep an eye on their social media as they are soon to open a bigger restaurant with attached vegan guest house!

Opening Times: 8am – 9pm every day

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.

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.

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.

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.

Thank you to the 4 vegan restaurants in Siem Reap who led the way, serving all of the vegans living in town and of course those passing through with a wide array of vegan and plant based delights. We hope to see new vegan restaurants opening soon as tourists start to return post-covid, but in the meantime we are very happy to have Hey Bong in town!

    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…
