This restaurant is associated with the "Friends" restaurant (see also Marum in Siem Reap) and run to give opportunities to former street youth to learn a trade in the hospitality industry. As such, a little patience may occasionally be required on the serving front but it is all done with willingness and a smile. This restaurant is an oasis on... More

It is a nicer version of khmer food one would find on the street. And they taste pretty good. They also offer some strange khmer delicacy like spiders and ants, so a good experience for tourists. Most clients are actually foreigners. The atmosphere was also nice and cozy.

Lovely staff & delicious food! Both times for lunch and dinner the meals were to a very high standard. The vegetarian amok was delicious, as was the pork eggplant. Favourites among all great dishes! The Coconut & Lime smoothie was also very delicious. For those more adventurous there are even fried tarantulas on the menu!

This restaurant supports children at risk of being drawn into an unhealthy/dangerous lifestyle - a worthy cause I was happy to support. I bought something from the gift shop after our meal. Something was amiss with our meals, however, as nothing we four ordered tasted really great, just OK. One of us did eat the fried tarantulas, for a laugh.... More

Fantastic place, great service, quite pricey for Cambodia. Quiet, beautiful area and feels secure as there is a security guard outside.

Really enjoyed this restaurant, best we visited in Phnom Penh! When we arrived the man on the door said they were full and couldn't seat us, we sadly left but 10 seconds later a waiter ran after us to say he would make room for us and thank goodness he did! We had fish amok & the beef curry, both... More

This restaurant is great. We had such a good time. The food is out of this world with some very alternative meals. Ants, tarantula, silk worms etc. The staff were also so kind and helpful. Remember to make a reservation as it's generally always full.

My teenage son wanted to try the tarantulas, and I wanted a safe clean venue, plus also supporting a great cause.Spiders were deep fried with lime, and he tried the silk worms and crispy crickets, interesting!!. As a change from all the insects I recommend the duck spring rolls, delicious.

Open Monday to Sunday from 11am to 10.30 Pm (kitchen closes 9.30Pm) Romdeng is set in a beautiful colonial building whose wooden carvings, tables, chairs and unique lights were all hand made in Cambodia. The silk goods and cushions adorning Romdeng were made by our students in sewing training at Mith Samlanh and its walls are hung with beautiful paintings produced by young people from the art classes there. All of this plus a pool, free WIFI, a family area and a gift shop mean a visit to Romdeng is a must.

We would like to inform you that ROMDENG Restaurant will be closed for Khmer New Year and will reopen on the 6th of May 2014.
