Vegan Khmer Options

The chef/owner helped me choose a vegan option, they speak English and are very friendly. I had a Tofu Amok. Recommend for Khmer food! You can also do a vegan cooking class.

Good but not the cheapest

They had a few vegetarian options. The size of the plates were decent (I took the Lek Lak Tofu and my S/O fried rice). The owner was really friendly and we had a great time talking with her.

Pros: Cute place

Excellent cambodian food

The owner Lyly prepares the food right after you order. The ingredients are fresh, the taste was rich.
They offer a good variety of vegan / vegetarian choices.
We had a nice conversation with the owner.

Ate here twice for lunch as my friend was a big fan of their amok. They have decent veg options - tried the tofu lok lak one day (they kindly subbed the oyster sauce) and a tofu amok the next. Both delicious, although I wish there was a bit more veg in both dishes. Great drinks and friendly service, would def recommend.

Good cooking class

We did the cooking class here and they were happy to adapt all of our dishes to vegan. The class was good fun and insanely cheap! $10 if I remember correctly.

Nothing Special

I'm not sure if we just ordered the wrong thing, but we felt that the food we had here didn't live up to the high praise in the reviews. I left feeling full and satisfied, however I felt that what I ate was no different from something I could have cooked myself at home (and I'm no chef!). The food seemed overpriced compared to other restaurants offering the same standard.

Pros: Friendly staff, Good sized portions

Cons: Expensive for the quality, Flavour of the food was somewhat lacking

Lovely local restaurant and cooking class

This place is great and run by a really sweet family. We went for dinner one night and then decided to do their cooking class. Was $10pp, we went to the local market, made 3 dishes plus a dessert each and got a small cookbook to take home. Would recommend!

Tasty Food and great Cooking Class

A heartwarming Place where you can enjoy typical Vegan Cambodia food! I had the Vegetable Curry and I also did the Cooking Class. Fair Prices and very delicious. Cooking Class is half Day with Market tour, 4 dishes- you can make everything vegan!

Pros: Fresh and tasty food, Vegan options , Lovely place and fair prices

Local food with a French twist

Too bad I can’t give this non vegetarian restaurant a five star rating in this app, because they truly deserve it. We had three meals here during our stay in Battambang, and LyLy proved himself to be an amazing chef every time. Yes there are also meat and fish dishes on the menu, but the vegetarian ones are not only delicious, their able to make it vegan as well most of the time. Consider this a five star review!

Pros: Great hosts to all of their guests, Amazing and surprising dishes, Optional cooking classes

Vegan Cooking Class!

We scheduled a private Khmer cooking class with Lyly for my family. We are a mix of vegan, pescatarian and non-vegan eaters. But Lyly was not deterred. He offered us a wonderful experience and each recipe was modified for our dietary needs. I learned how to make vegan mushroom amok, vegan fried spring rolls, vegan tofu luk-lak and vegan coconut lyly (dessert). We had a blast and I am excited to try these recipes at home. This is a family-owned and operated restaurant and Lyly is excited to offer vegan options for all his dining and cooking-class guests. Note: I am also gluten-free.

Pros: Family-owned and operated, Vegan options, Gluten-free options
