Simple vegetarian/vegan food - Edit

Very simple home-cooked fare in peaceful surrounds. Vegan options clearly marked on English language menu. Be aware that though the listing says it is closed, we went there April 2018. The opening hours may not coincide with everything you read online.

Pros: Good value, Peaceful vibe

Cute place, OK food - Edit

The place is absolutely cute. Wooden house in a lush garden. Found the found OK, but portions were not too big and taste wise they could do better for the price they charge. Found the 5% 'service charge' annoying.

Good food, good ambience, many vegan options - Edit

I came here for Valentine's Day and had a lovely meal. The staff were friendly and you can sit outside in a beautiful garden. The vegan options are clearly labelled on the menu. I'm not sure if the vegetable curry usually comes with tofu or not but through a miscommunication with the server (I was asking for her recommendations but she misunderstood) she said they could add tofu?
The vegetables in the curry were phenomenal, so fresh and perfectly cooked.
The vegan Brownie was good but a little dry.
I got a blue butterfly tea and it was really blue! (But didn't taste like much).

I will be going back for sure!

ETA: Oh, there is a 5% service charge on top of their reasonable prices.

loved it!! don’t miss this while in Siem Reap. - Edit

Such a nice experience,
The wait staff all super sweet with us.
Found this place on happy cow, and realized it was only a couple blocks from our hotel.
Very nice courtyard, romantic. We had The Amok, the pad Thai, the mushroom/spinach tart and brownies for dessert. All delicious. Only here for 3 days but will 100% go back to try more of the menu.
Highly recommended.

Great food and atmosphere - Edit

I had a tomato spaghetti that was good but not amazing (and the portion was a little reduced). My friend had the Khmer Curry and was delicious and good amount. The vegan brownie is tasty but would be much better if served warm. Great location near (walking distance) the tourist area and amazing garden!

Pros: location , variety , staff

Cons: price

Luxurious but cheap - Edit

Oh my, this place is amazing. It is not expensive at all, but has the atmosphere and vibe of a luxurious dining. Service was great and so was the food.
My favourite were the springrolls, that were extremely large and well filled and the vegetable curry. But also the vegan brownie was very good, and the juices were tasty too!
I came back a couple of times, and wish I could visit this place in my own country!

uitstekend eten en prettige atmosfeer in eettuin - Edit

Aangename sfeer, goed adviserend personeel met oog voor wat je eerder hebt gegeten. Gerechten die bij de tijd van het jaar passen. Bediening met engels sprekend personeel. Echt een aanrader voor vegetariërs

Pros: alleen op vegetarisch eten gelet en dat was uitste, engels sprekende bediening, uit de toeristische drukte van Siem Riep

Cons: op dinsdag gesloten

Mostly vegan - Edit

Great place to eat, especially during evening in the garden. Went here last time I was in Siem Reap as well. I just love their vegan amok, it is really tasteful! Staff is friendly and the price is ok for the food. If you want something sweet they also have desserts.

nice vegetarian restaurant - Edit

Banlle Vegetarian Restaurant is located in Street 26 which is just a short walk from the pub street area ... the street is quiet and there is a high wall at the front of the restaurant that provides privacy and sound reduction from passing traffic ... the restaurant is in a garden setting and there is a great selection of delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes on offer ... I had the very tasty vegetable curry (made with coconut milk) and a serving of brown rice washed down with a Beer Lao (a beer so good they named the country after it) costing a total of US$5.25 (the 5% service charge, not included in the menu pricing, is added to the cost of your order when paying) ... my non-vegetarian Cambodian friend enjoyed her mushroom based sandwich with a side salad .... the staff speak English and understand vegan dietary requirements and they and provide a friendly, helpful and attentive service

Pros: great inexpensive vego food

Cons: fish pond at entrance

Very good food in a nice garden setting and super friendly owner and staff - Edit

You will find this restaurant just on the other side of the river very close to the center of Siem Reap. In a nice and quiet garden atmosphere the kind owner and friendly staff serve excellent food. After you have seen busy Siem Reap this is a really enjoyable place to have dinner in a cozy garden.

Pros: Very friendly staff, Excellent food, close to city center, Nice atmosphere in cozy garden setting

lovely location - Edit

We read some different reviews for this place, and we were more than impressed with the food, price, service and location. The menu is a mix of asian and western. We went a few times and loved the fresh spring rolls and soft tofu and ginger starters. The main courses are all well presented, full of flavour and the portions were certainly big enough, I had just spent 7 hours cycling and needed feeding, the spring rolls and spinach wrap did me proud. The staff are very helpful and funny, plus they grow their own vegetables within the lovely gardens that surround the restaurant. Well worth a walk from Pub Street for some tranquility and good food. Great glass of wine and large cold beer as well.

Pros: excellent menu, quality food, location

Small portions but good food. - Edit

It wasn't incredible, but it was good! I had the tempura eggplant and the spinach wrap. Eggplant was a little plain flavour wise, the spinach wrap was super flavourful and tasty but not much food for $4 compared to what you can get at other places. Overall good experience! Might return to try another item on the menu.

a bit disappointed - Edit

had the eggplant starter which was good. Soba pad thai was good too but nothing like expected. It had the taste of ratatouille, no particular spice nor sweetness of a normal padthai. It was not what I craved for but not too bad

Wholesome goodness - Edit

A lovely venue with a very calm and pretty garden setting. The food was tasty and there were plenty of vegan options here, too. It wasn't the most sensational food I've ever had, but it was wholesome and fresh and did taste really GOOD. The juices were also really yummy (I particularly enjoyed the delicious beetroot concoction that I had). Make sure you bring mosquito repellent if you're eating here in the evening: the mozzies are most certainly not vegan and they will gladly feast upon you if you aren't suitably sprayed!

Pros: Wide menu with vegan options, Lovely setting, Fresh ingredients

Cons: Slightly bland? (I don't mind that, though), Mosquito central

Great Veg/Vegan Restaurant!! - Edit

Super veg/vegan restaurant! We stumbled across this walking from our hotel to the market, and glad we did! Excellent food, we ordered all vegan and it was well prepared and very tasty. The portions were not huge but that gave us the chance to sample a couple, and at ~US$4 for a dish, how can you complain?! Service was excellent and both women we interacted with were very, very nice. Outstanding!

Pros: Great food, Great service, Very friendly

Small portions - Edit

My impression of Banlle was that the prices seemed low, but the portions were small. I would have needed two dishes to feel happy about my meal. Our group ordered pad thai, eggplant tempura and three other dishes, and those three dishes were curry-like and nothing special. They were not quite what we expected because of the descriptions of the dishes, they were just curries, a bit watery and not enough salt. I needed to ask for soy sauce.

So please, prepare bigger portions with more taste - more rich sauces, less water, more seasoning, more salt

The garden is nice, the restaurant is beautiful and location was good. If there were no other vegetarian restaurants I would have gone to Banlle all the time, but now I didn´t because there were better options like Chamkar nearby.

Pros: Prices are not high, Lovely garden, Central location

Cons: Small portions, Nothing special, Not enough taste or salt
