Try the beetroot falafel wrap for a taste of the middle east, served in a warm pitta with vegan tzatziki sauce. The homemade mousaka is pure comfort food made up of delicious grilled eggplant, tomatoes, special spices, and topped with divine vegan cashew cheese.

Health-conscious travelers can choose the “Tofeta Quinoa Salad” from our menu. A beautiful Greek-style salad topped with a special vegan feta cheese made from tofu.


Bong Bonlai is a vegan food paradise but it saves the best food for the dinnertime menu. The “Crunchy “WINGS” Burger” is simply to die for. If you are vegan, you don’t want to miss out on the chance to gorge on a KFC-style vegan sandwich!

“The Incredible Burger” is exactly what it says on the tin. A big black bean and soy patty topped with grilled cashew cheese, vegan calamari, and jalapenos that tastes simply…incredible! 

We also serve up a number of traditional Thai and Khmer dishes that have been “veganized” including Kymer Style Tofu and Mushrooms and Thai Red Curry.

The Restaurant

Our space is designed to be a secret escape to nature. Phnom Penh can get overwhelming but our spot, even though we are central, offers the perfect escape. Dine under the trees in the warmth of the Cambodian sun. 

Sit at our bar and sip on local craft ale or fine wines while meeting new people or sharing some quality time with loved ones. Our restaurant is not just somewhere to eat. It is an escape from real life and a chance to experience delicious food in a unique and beautiful setting right in the heart of Cambodia’s capital.
