Best seitan I've ever had - Edit

This was my first meal in Cambodia, and after the meat heavy Philippines I was so happy to see a completely vegetarian menu! I had pork seitan, which was so incredibly tasty and soft. Also had the big noodle soup, which was delicious. I was welcomed with a big pot of green tea all for myself and the staff was super friendly. Must go to for Phnom Penh in my eyes.

Pros: cheap, delicious, central location

Cons: not a whole lot of atmosphere in the restaurant, cash only

Chek your the bill befor payment - Edit

We were with my friends (6 people) in this cafe. Good food, but the food is rather mediocre , many choice of vegan food . Cheap, the staff speaks English, the cafe has a pleasant atmosphere, air conditioning. The cost of the dish is around 2 $. when I asked for bill for food they brought us not the correct bill for food, there was indicated a completely different meal which cost more, that is most likely the staff wanted to cheat, i advice you chek your bill before payment.

Pros: chip, good location, a lot of intersested choice

Cons: personal cheating with bill

Became a classic for me - Edit

Not expensive for the quality. I usually end up paying 2USD. Free iced tea as in most of khmer restaurant.
Serves khmer, thai and other kind of dishes.
Serves seitan, vegan seafood, vegan meat. Seitan was good, never tested the rest.
Busy at noon.
Friendly place.
The staff speaks a little bit english and the menu has english translation and pictures so no problem to eat fully vegan. Most of the menu is vegan anyway.

Pros: real vegan friendly, Nice staff, good location

Cons: really no cons.

great food & friendly staff - Edit

Evergreen is a clean air-conditioned family run vegetarian restaurant with friendly and helpful English speaking staff ... there is a very extensive menu with lots of vegan options and most dishes ranging between US$1.50 - 3.00 ... I had Monday's special rice noodles that were very tasty and cheap (US$1.75) with free tea ... I called in again Tuesday and had a delicious and filling Phat Thai noodle dish (US$2.00) ... too many more visits to list here but every time great food and service ... it's easy to find on Street 130 between Central Market and the riverside

Pros: extensive menu

Cons: it's vegetarian not vegan

Tasty and good value - Edit

The food is very tasty, we ate here a few times. First you get a free pot of tea which is very enjoyable. The menu is very clear with pictures that actually look like what they serve you. Beware they do serve eggs, so be sure to specify! The mint fried rice is delicious as well as the fried seitan. Some of the dishes have a sweet flavour in them so be sure to ask if you don't like it. They make their own soy milk fresh every morning, a sweet and a plain variety, 40 cents for half a litre bottle. Dishes around 1,5 to 3-4 dollars. Very friendly staff. I recommend and will probably go back a few times before leaving Phnom Penh .

Pros: Tasty and fresh, Good value , Free tea

Cons: Serve egg

Cheap prices, decent food - Edit

Decent menu with wide range of noodle dishes and mock meats. Had a rice noodle soup which was fine, but was more noodle than anything else and was pretty bland overall - would've been nicer with a few more veggies and more herbs & spices. Totally fine, but not worth more than the cheap prices you pay. Maybe better for lunch?

Pros: Cheap, Wide menu, Free tea

Cons: No drinks other than the tea?, Bland & serves egg, Quite small (limited seats)

Okay food, located in a touristy area, cheap - Edit

This veggie restaurant is located in the touristy area near the river and it´s practical for those who stay near the river, north from the royal palace.

The food wasn´t anything special here, but it´s cheap and the location is good. The fried noodles were a bit limp. I liked most the noodle soup with wontons, baguette with mock meat (available only about once a week) and the mock meats.

Pros: Okay food, okay prices, Located near the river

Cons: Food is not special

Came here every day of my stay in Phnom Penh - Edit

Good if you're close by and on a short trip. Delicious and cheap but certainly don't expect it to be very nutritious.

Cons: ok but not wow

Good vegan options - Edit

To be honest the food is good but not great. Kind of reminds me of cheap Chinese restaurant food back home. But it was good enough considering the options in Phnom Penh that I went back twice! It also helps that they speak good English, and even knew what vegan means. I started to explain that I don't eat eggs and she's like "yeah you're vegan, right? what do you want?"

Pretty affordable. Not huge portions--I have a pretty big appetite and I have to get a main and an appetizer to get full. Probably under $4 for the two though.

Pros: good english, good vegan options, affordable

Cons: small-ish portions

So awesome! - Edit

Delicious & cheap, plus very friendly staff.

I went for the Sunday BBQ special, and it was AMAZING.

Free tea, some grilled kebabs on a stick, and it only cost $1.75 US. Amazing!

Pros: No meat, Friendly, Cheap

Cheap, great eats! - Edit

A very cheap restaurant (entrees are about $1-$3 on average) and friendly staff who speak great English. Free tea is served alongside your meal, and the menu is all in English as well as in Khmer. Most, if not all, dishes are Cambodian, so don't come here expecting Western food!

Pros: VERY cheap, English-speaking staff and menu, air-conditioned

Little gem - Edit

After reading the reviews I was curious about the place. I didn't see the sleeping man, but I did see the woman watching the video's. It turns out to be the owner who was very nice and tried to convince me to start a vegetarian restraunt.

The food was very good and the specials are cheap. Staff is certainly low energy and shy, but certainly kind.

Pros: Price, quality, taste

Cons: Nothing really

Lot of good vegan dishes! - Edit

The menu is really various. I tasted different dishes all vegan and really good and inexpensive!! For the first time I tasted the vegi shrimps! Interesting! They have many vegi-meat and vegi-seafood! And they open at 6.30 AM to enjoy a good salty breakfast. The only negative point is that the restaurant needs a relooking!

Pros: Good vegan dishes

Cons: Restaurant need a relooking!

food is fine, place is bizarre, I don't get it - Edit

I went here twice and Evergreen is... simple bizarre.

The food is OK, but I couldn't understand the bored staff. There was a corner table where one male server was fast asleep across the table. The girl next to him, also a server, was engrossed in a video while eating a bowl of noodles.

The second time was something out of a comedy: the same guy fast asleep, the same girl watching a video on her phone; while eating a bowl of noodles. A guy (the owner?) walking in with a drill, staring at me while walking by. The staff staring at me from the kitchen while I was about to eat, and they were also eating. I decided to stare back at them while they were eating and they moved away... The whole thing was simply hilarious!

People drifted in, from the street stall outside, with drinks, walked around the room, went through into the kitchen, sat in the stairwell, walked out again, a little boy walked in, started doing some schoolwork, left his bag, walked out, the main server who was nice and spoke English, took my order and left on her motorbike. The bill was higher than the menu prices and I was told that they hadn't had time to change the stickers.

The mushroom dumplings were fine, when I asked for the sauce that came with them, the server actually went first to her phone to pause her video and then had a spoonful of her soup, before heading to the kitchen to fill a dish with the sauce.

Like I said, it all straight out of a comedy show!

In short, it's just bizarre, because they can clearly make food here that is hot and fresh and tasty, and to order, but the whole lethargic atmosphere and the lacklustre mood, the sombre feeling left me heading straight up to Besto a few blocks up the street...

Pros: it's OK

Cons: atmosphere, pricing
