Dining and Meals

We have more than ten cooks available to make all your meals for you. The cooks are women from the surrounding villages in Banteay Chhmar. They are all able to cook traditional Khmer and western-style dishes and have received training in hospitality and food hygiene. Our office has a covered restaurant area or we can have meals delivered to your homestay.

Two of our most popular activities are picnics next to the baray (large lake) and dinner in the temple while listening to traditional music and watching the sun set.

The CBT also offers a Cooking Class where visitors can cook a  few delicious Khmer dishes alongside a family and enjoy a meal together.

Please let us know your dietary needs so we can make your meal healthy and tasty.

Breakfast is $2/person; Lunch is $4/person; Dinner is $4/person.  Supplement of $6/group for meals at the baray or BanteayTorp; and $5 or $10 depending upon group size  for dinner in the temple. The cooks receive a small stipend for each meal cooked. Please see our Prices & Tours page for more information.
