Serves meat, vegan options available. Simple place with Wi-Fi, located in the heart of town a short walk from the Pub Street. Offers a number of vegetarian dishes. Staff can speak English and can make some items vegan when requested. Replaced a previously vegetarian Chusska Restaurant. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-10:00pm.

nice food, could be better - Edit

not bad, but could be better. A bit overpriced for its quality

Pros: a whole page of veg options

Cons: costs more than its worth, $4.75 for palak paneer,

Tasty Indian in Siem Reap! - Edit

A hidden gem away from the bustle of the Main Street! We ordered the recommended onion pakora- YUM! They were almost like onion rings. Then we split the aloo Matarr (spelling may be incorrect) which was a potato and green pea based dish, and some homemade garlic flatbread (like naan, only a vegan version, the name has slipped my memory). All were absolutely delicious! We got the aloo matarr a little too spicy though! We will be going back to try some other things for sure! Lots of vegan options and the guy who took our order was very helpful and accommodating! Fluent English, too! There was also 0.50$ Draft beer... although we didn't try it, cheap beer is always a plus!! I would give 5-stars but the system won't allow it for veg-friendly!

Pros: Great staff, Delicious food

Cons: Prices higher than what we were used to in Vietnam

Best Samosa and Pakora I've ever had - Edit

This review is coming from someone who eats at a lot of Indian restaurants when given the opportunity (travel, visit to a larger city). My wife and I had mixed vegetable samosas with onion pakora. Best I've ever had. For our mains, we had Chana masala and Aloo Gobi. Huge portions! The service was absolutely top notch and the owners son jumped in to help out. Cute little guy. We're only in Siem Reap for 4 nights but we're coming back for dinner. The only problem was the servings were so huge so we had too much food. Not necessarily a bad thing. The papadams with 4 sauces that came out were great too.

Pros: Huge portions, Very tasty food; hot and fresh, Very inexpensive. 2 dishes with rice, 2 appetizers

Solid good indian food - Edit

We had each a solid and good Thali here. Teast was nice (specialy the naan) but not crazy amazing. The amount looked small but it was very filling. For indian food it took a while to come but it was freshly made and you could put special orders like how spicy it should be.
All in all a very good place for simple eating when you have some time.

Pros: Fair amount of choices, Good teast, Can make take out

Cons: A bit slow, Food didn't look great (but teast was good), Simple eatery

Tasty Vegan meals - Edit

I enjoyed a number of various vegan meals at the Taj Mahal during my visit in July 2015. The main dishes, the breads, and samosas were all vegan or veganised for me. I found them very tasty. Nice friendly service also. I returned a number of times during my week in Siem Reap.

Tasty, big portions! - Edit

A terrific option for veggies. True Indian place. So, while not vegetarian, there are numerous veggie options, and they're actually listed first in the menu!

It is perhaps a bit on the pricey side, but definitely in the normal range for SR. I had the veg thali, which is $5, but which I should also mention is very big! I have had thalis before that looked miniature in comparison. I'd say it equalled 3 small Indian portions that I have sometimes received in SE Asia.

And it was very good, on balance -- two of the items were very well seasoned and delicious, while two were a bit in need of less salt and more other spices. The spiciness (hotness) level was on the head for what I requested. So the worst of what I had was simply just in need of more spices, while the best was truly lovely.

It took a little while for it to come out, but it also seemed quite freshly made.

And the folks seemed nice! So I recommend it heartily -- I am giving it the highest rating (4) for a non-veg place.

Pros: Tasty, Big portions, Nice people

Cons: A bit pricey (but big portions)
