First Review by lotustummy

Tastess - Edit

We where lucky to have a Russian speaking friend with us, otherwise communication would be worse.

About the food: the Cambodian cook made a wonderfull papaya salad and noodle soup (Cambodian dishes).

But the pastas where tasteless, fat and rancid. No salt, no pepper,. Just pasta, cream, some mushrooms and something they called cheese.

I asked at forehand if the juices where fresh but it was clearly watered and sugared.

A conplaint led to a discussian, defending their choises (not to use salt after complaints of too salty food).

A lot of local cooks hiref by foreign buisinesses cook very good Cambodian dishes but seem not to taste their own made non-Cambodian food. Pity.

Pros: Cambodian gfod is okay

Cons: small portions, relatively expensive, non-Cambodian food is tasteless, watered and sugared fruit juice

Laid back, welcoming bar/restaurant - Edit

A (slightly) hidden gem amongst the generic tourist bars. Very welcoming staff, great music and atmosphere (even if you're the only ones in there). Have visited this bar a few times during our stay in sihanoukville. The menu is so diverse, with plenty of options which will appeal to non vegetarians also! The staff are all so polite and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality of food. Cheap beer and interesting cocktail, I highly recommend it!!

Pros: Good value, Lovely staff, Chilled atmosphere

Cons: Not enough customers!, Toilet could do with an upgrade, but is clean

Superfood! - Edit

I've been in this place for the first time. Relaxing atmosphere and good music. The food was wonderful! I took the fried noodles with vegetables and it was amazing. Guys make this dish from rice noodles with spinach and a good mix of vegetables. But most importantly, its filed it with flax seeds, chia seeds, and sesame seeds. It's just superfood! Be sure to come back and will recommend to friends!

Pros: Superfood!, Pure vegetarian, Good location

Always good food and good service - Edit

We went here the first time almost 3 years ago, and now we're back and the place is just as good as always, if not better!! Good food and reasonable prices, a big plus is that a lot of they serve can be made into a vegan option. They also have some nice interesting Russian specialties worth trying!

Pros: Many foods can be made vegan, Good price, Good location

Very convenient place - Edit

Located just steps away from the beach this place offers wide variety of vegetarian meals, many of which are vegan. It's ran by Russians and they are very friendly and helpful. I had fried rice with veggies, pineapple and peanuts and some chili papaya sauce. Both of those were very tasty. Since they apparently don't do 2 hours breaks in the middle of the day, you can grab something to eat anytime you want. Definitely worth a visit.

Pros: Staff, Many vegan options, Opening hours

Mixed Feelings - Edit

This is a nice restaurant right by the beach, the Russian lady is very friendly, but her English is not the best.

When I first went to this restaurant I had the scrambled tofu and it was very good !
the next day I went and got the pancakes, I asked what the ingredients was for the pancakes but the Russian lady just couldn't understand my question, I ordered pancakes with banana but I got pancakes with chocolate sauce, no banana..
I wasn't impressed with the pancakes.

so mixed feelings really, I guess all I can say is if you go you should give the scrambled tofu a try.

Pros: friendly staff, by the beach

Cons: owner doesn't understand English well, food can be average

a real gem in one of the loveliest places on earth - Edit

I absolutely loved my stay in Sihanoukville (stayed on otres 1, which is much nicer than the main beach) and was happy to find this cosy little restaurant as food was absolutely delicious here! there's so much to choose from, too!
The girl was insanely helpful & attentive. Food was fresh and really really tasty! portion was huge, which is why I took half of it with me (which was no problem at all).
highly recommended!!

Pros: taste & variety, price, service, staff & atmosphere

Cons: can't think of any

We visited this restaurant one night as it was the only vegan/veg restaurant in the neighbourhood and we weren't disappointed. The place is run by a friendly Russian couple. The woman is lovely and attentive. The food is great, with lots of variety to choose from and fresh tasty salads (they also have great cocktails). We came back a second time :) Highly recommend. Thank you!!

Good Simple Food, Bar Atmosphere. - Edit

Extensive international menu with Russian and Khmer focus. All veggie, no egg, almost all can be made vegan.

Restaurant is just off beach, has a big sign. Can be found on Google maps.

Pros: Tasty, Cheap, Relaxed

Cons: Rustic , Hard To Find

Excellent vegetarian food - Edit

This restaurant/bar has a large range of vegetarian options. The food I had was excellent.

Another reviewer complained that the music was loud (they apparently rev up the music to attract people off the street). When I was there, I asked them to turn down the music volume, and they did so immediately, to our satisfaction.

They also have a large range of cocktail choices, if you are interested.

Overall, I had a good experience, and I believe that this is the best vegetarian restaurant in Sihanoukville (as of Dec 2013). The next time I am in town, I will return here.

Pros: Good range of vegetarain food

Atypical vegetarian comfort food - Edit

On the little road down to the beach, this restaurant offers some Russian comfort foods (potato dumpling, booked potatoes band butter, mashed potato and mushroom, blini, beet and cabbage soup) as well as standard veg traveller food - fried rice and noodle dishes, juices, salads. An little odd - but Russian owned it appears. Food was ok - nothing spectacular though BUT we didn't try the vereneki or sauerkraut. We likely won't go back, though. The music was too loud and the service lacked

Pros: Good location next to the beach, Good time to try Russian veg food?, Reasonable price

Cons: Loud - very loud - reggae and dnb music in pm, Run by disinterested Russian youths?, Stan
