Need to find cheap food in Battambang?

Your cheapest option is to buy food from the Psar Nat Central Market.

Choose from a large selection of fresh fruits and vegetables, yummy sticky rice and mouthrunning local soups. After 17.00 you should head for the Battambang night market on the west side of the river, where you can find plenty of locals eating at the food stalls (delicious BBQ chicken, Khmer-style baguettes, fruit shakes and so much more).

Otherwise, you'll find numerous restaurants and coffee shops around Battambang. Restaurants geared towards foreigners are found on the westside of the river. You might try the popular Lonely Tree Cafe where they serve Khmer and European fusion dishes starting at $ 2. If you want to learn Khmer cooking, you should check out Nary Kitchen's daily cooking classes ($ 10 for three meals). Or maybe grab a sandwich and sip on a lemonade at the balcony of Gecko Cafe.

You should definitely visit the newly opened and highly-rated Jaan Bai Restaurant, which serves fusion food. Try the mushroom and eggplant dumplings, the Pad Thai, salads or the Kampot Pepper Crab.

White Rose Restaurant

White Rose was packed with locals and few foreigners. They serve cheap delicious Khmer and Thai food. And not to mention, they serve it fast. I think I waited for five minutes before my Cambodian soup was on the table. What so great about this place, is their extensive menu and great fruit shakes. You can get dishes for about $5!

Dishes on the menu: Cambodian soups, curry dishes, noodle dishes with chicken, beef etc, prawn salad.

White Rose is not a typical restaurant where you can sit and admire beautiful art/interior. It's very simple and a place to have your quick meal!

Where: Street 2

Sunrise Coffee Shop

Backpackers hang out here to eat tasty sandwiches or cinnamon rolls for breakfast, exchange a book or to rent a bicycle.

Try the bagels or their cookies, they're delicious! Not to mention, their coffees do actually taste like coffee. It's hard to find good coffee in Cambodia, so you definitely have to try this place if you're looking for one.

Where: It's located west of Psar Nat Market.

Smokin' Pot
in Battambang

Smokin Pot is known for serving authentic Khmer food and is a popular place among backpackers. Their Amok is really good! If you're up for Thai food, they have that as well.

Interested in learning the basics of Khmer cooking?

You don't have to look far! Smokin Pot have cooking classes. The local teacher will take you to Psar Nat market and tell you about the ingredients, and what's best. Then you go back to cook three meals! You can choose three dishes from their Khmer and Thai menu.

You should book in advance because their classes are popular.
