Go somewhere else... - Edit

We went there about two weeks ago in search for vegan food. A look in the menu was confusing. A big list of meaty Khmer food and a page "European Vegetarian Food" incl. chicken and fish dishes. If they don't understand vegetarian I doubt vegan is possible there...I don't know why it is listed on here. We asked for vegetarian dishes and the waiter pointed on two options only. A waste of time, we went to The Indian restaurant instead and had amazing diner (not listed on HappyCow but best reviews on TripAdvisor, amazing food & vegan options!)

Pros: Don't know

Cons: Confusing menu, Poor options for vegetarians and vegans

Delicious food - Edit

The singing tree cafe is a really nice place if youre looking for some more western style foods..they dont really have a large range otherwise. However everything we ate was delicious, Veg burger, feta olive focaccia, fresh cut sweet potato and pumpkin chips (a little indulgent but amazing and we lll worth trying), mango sticky rice...
We waitied quite a long time but head on upstairs to the seating area there and enjoy :)

Great salads :o) - Edit

This is a sweet little place. It is on 'the alley' and is curb-side seating. Very comfortable. The only drawback is that when I went a few times there were quite a few children and women begging or trying to sell books. It's a really difficult issue and I still haven't figured out what is best to do (after 1.5 months here). But just be aware that if you find it distressing, take supportive friends!

The food is great. My favourite is the banana flower salad with tofu. delicious. I think I dream about it. :o) Be clear about no fish sauce as they do serve fish in the restaurant.

Well worth a trip. Nice place and nice food.

Pros: Amazing salads!, Very friendly staff

Cons: Lots of begging as it is curb-side, Wish it was all veggie

Amazing - Edit

This place was just amazing. It was such a nice place and you could just feel the positive energy. And the food was delicious, especially the smoothies too! They are very thorough with their veggies and I think you can get super safe salads here. The best dishes were the tofu noodles and stir fried veggie noodles, and their spring rolls were really good also.

Pros: Great food, Good causes, Great atmosphere

Cons: Kinda pricey for Cambodia (but worth it)

Not many options for a all of the vegtalk - Edit

I agree with the others, had a nice fried noodles with basil but choices were definitely lacking compared to all of the "Why Veg" literature all over the place... seemed mostly like a fish restaurant.

Still pretty cute and worth seeking out.

Pros: Cute, Cheap

Cons: Little selection

Brilliant but with lack of choice - Edit

A great place to start your holiday as it acts as a bit of a centre for the charity work that goes on - a good place to find leaflets. There is also a nice shop.

It has a far more authentic and local feel to it than some of the other westernised resaurants. As vegans we had a choice of about 3 dishes (1 of which was a salad) but the one we did choose was amazing - noodles and tofu like i've never tasted before!

It's the only restuarant we went back to.

Great, but more veggy choice required. - Edit

It was a lovely place to eat. The first evening we went, there was a charity performance by street kids and victims of land mines.
The tofu and tomatoe salad was really flavourful and light and the fresh vietnamese rolls were amazing. They also do a vegetarian tomatoe/pasta dish which was good. They really pay attention to the use of heathy ingredients, so it's a shame that there isn't more choice on the vegetarian/vegan front.

Pros: quiet setting/atmosphere, Fresh food, Friendly staff

Cons: Small vegetarian selectio
