The restaurant is not bad but the prices are quite high for Phnom Penh and the choice in the menu are not very traditional (at least this is what I think). Almost all customers were tourists.

Located in an area of Phnom Penh that seems to specialise in vegetarian cuisine this place is exceptional. Ate here several times during our 4 day stay in PP.

This restaurant has an extensive menu of vegetarian and vegan food. The portions are generous and it's inexpensive. The creamy lotus dish was amazing! Haven't eaten lotus anywhere since.

This place is fine, but totally average. The unimaginative name of the restaurant is mirrored by its blandly concocted cuisine. It's not that it's bad: you'll get a decent meal here (though the person at the Lonely Planet who said this place serves large portions obviously has a very different idea of what 'large' is compared to me...

This place has a big variation of vegetarian food. Plates are $2.75-3.5 and rice os just $0.5. It's hard to find good vegetarian food and also such cheap one. Highly recommended.

Lots of Veggie options. Very reasonably priced. Visited rather late one weeknight as the kitchen was about to close. Tried their Amok. Just ok. Fried options not for me. Still would go back another time. Pleasant patio and service was good.

Staff were lovely and we were so thrilled to find a veggie restaurant as my mate usually suffers (I am a heavy meat eater). The prices were really reasonable but i just found the food tasteless :-(.

My friends and I went to The Vegetarian with the knowledge that the previous reviews mentioned food going bland... well you get what you pay for. Food was of average taste at best but cheap.
