Staff confused about vegan food


I ate here hundreds of times before realizing a lot of the dishes I was assured were vegan, were not. The 'meat' balls and other cold cuts contain egg. I was assured repeatedly over the years that they did not contain animal products, yet recently they've changed the packaging for the ones they sell to take home, and one of the ingredients listed is eggs. I've also heard the mushroom stems contain eggs, but I cannot be sure.

The food was always good, the selection was abundant, but I cannot eat somewhere where the staff cannot tell me which dishes are vegan.

It would get 4 or 5 stars if the food was clearly labelled and I could trust it.

Pros: Good taste, Good price, Friendly service

Cons: non-vegan food I ate repeatedly without knowing, Food not clearly labelled vegan.

Okay if you're hungry and nearby

Just okay... The food was underwhelming. Lots of mock meats. Everything was edible and I'd be back if I was nearby and there weren't better options. Most things seem to come with egg so ask to have it removed

Cons: Meh, Not 100% vegan

Similar to Pidoa Nature

I have only tried the sweet and sour (and spicy) tofu, which was so good I never wanted to order anything else. Interestingly, the menu is identical to Pidoa Nature Cafe’s; I tried the same dish there, but this one is better.

Pros: Free wifi

Nice Lunch

A large menu utilizing plant based meats. The staff doesn't speak much English, + the English on the menu is limited, so utilize caution to avoid animal ingredients. I had a fried rice dish with plantbased meat + fried spring rolls. The portions are quite large, + dishes come with a variety of sauces - bring your reusable togo container! Make sure to ask for no straw by saying "chambaeng te." The outdoor seating covered by greenery + trees is nice, but of course there will be bugs.

Pros: Great prices, Nice outdoor seating

Cons: Not much English on the menu

I wanted to rate less than 2 but the app didn't let me do. Juices were over sweetened, dumpling were broken, noddle were tasteless, staff not especially friendly and they forgot my order. First time in 3 months in Asia that I didn t finish my whole meal!

What a feast!

We were treated to a right feast today. It was less outstandingly delishous, but more different and a new experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and didn't find it difficult to cover to the Wi-Fi to make sure we dust get any egg in our meals. The menu is also, somewhat, in English. I would definitely return.

Pros: Massive many with lots of options, Free WiFi, Reasonably priced

Cons: No marked vegan options

Not cooked with love

The worst dumplings I've ever eaten. They where really oily, broken and the dough was very thick. Also tried the fried mushrooms and the taste was good but very hard to bite and chew.

Pros: cheap

Cons: no good food

Very tasty

A bit victim of its success: sometimes there is really too many people and staff gets overwhelmed so you can wait quite long for the food to come. But not all the time and not if you go early.

Very tasty food (recommand the fried mushrooms).
Lots of choice and a large variety of price.
Do hotpot.

Khmer and chinese food mostly

Pros: very tasty, lots of options

Fantastic and inexpensive

My partner and I went for lunch here. Not busy at 2pm weekday. Tons of room, and a nice covered outdoor area.

Food was good price (1-3usd for most), fast service although little English, and tasted great. Good faux meat, and could make vegan with no egg. Order with menu # too.

We got rice with basil, fried dumplings and the Japanese sushi. All delicious!

Pros: Can request no egg cheap

Super popular local vegetarian restaurant

The place was packed with locals when we went for lunch on a weekday afternoon. Service is super friendly & menu has some English & photos to help choose. The special fried rice & noodle soups were scrumptious & the portions were very generous.

Pros: Delicious food, Great value, Generous portions

nice, cheap vego restaurant

Mercy House is a nice vego restaurant located on busy Pasteur (51) Street on the corner with Samdach Sangkreach Tientsin (222) Street ... the restaurant has a large boundary wall on the street side that helps buffer the street noise ... it has a nice setting and a great range of cheap food ranging from US$1-3 ... the menu's pricing is in riel however you can pay in US$ also ... I had a serve of the nice and crispy fried spring rolls costing 7000 riel (US1.75) that came with a bowl of dipping sauce and mixed steamed vegies ... the staff are very friendly and helpful and speak good English

Pros: lots of vego choices

nothing special

Looked okay at first sight, but the food was not bad but also not good. Not much taste.

My Cambodian friend did not finish his plate and didn't want to take the rest home: "wouldn't eat it so why should I?".

Pros: 100% vegetarian

Cons: not much taste

Nice place with a little pond

They have lots of plants and a little pond with little fish and lizards. I like the Teppanyaki Rice which comes on a hot plate. There is a lot of egg in the menu and milk in the bubble teas, but you can ask for no egg.

Pros: nice atmosphere

Cons: serves egg
