What we say: 3.5 stars

A huge hit with vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike, this very pretty restaurant stands out on The Passage for its elegant decor.

The space here is small and intimate, but it always manages to be comfortable, and the location in the middle of The Alley means you're in a prime spot, yet you feel like you're retaining a calm distance.

The extensive menu offers veggie variations on classic Khmer dishes, as well as some additional extras. They specialise also in teas, including a green tea latte.

The classic pumpkin curry is a real hunger-buster and very popular.

In 2014 Chamkar opened a second branch of the restaurant in Siem Reap, Chamkar House. Located off National Road No.6, the restaurant is housed in a traditional wooden villa just past Angkor Home Hotel.
