We were super impressed with Friends. The food was amazing and a good value for what we got. Yummy cocktails and we loved the meatballs and chicken curry dish. Good cause and great quality food. Don't miss this one!

Got the last table available in the place. The food here is ok, just not better, but definitely much more expensive as in the local restaurants or food markets.

Very good restaurant, good food. For us the best place we eat in Phnom Penh. The restaurant is a training center for disadvanced youth. They do their very best. The teacher make sure everything is going well. Very good atmosphere and nice looking restaurant. They have small dices you can choose. For us, two per person was enough.

It is unquestionably nice to think that by patronizing this restaurant you support Cambodian orphan teenagers and contribute to their social integration. But this does not allow for a would-be imaginative cuisine which turns out to be quite disappointing and a little overpriced. The place itself is nice though and conveniently located within walking distance of both the Royal Palace... More

We had few lunches and one dinner here. Nice tapas dishes to eat with a drink, but the place seems to have lost some of its charm and meaning.

Very imaginative menu - we had the hummus; the fried mozzarella, herb risotto and shitake mushroom; mango and passionfruit lassi; and a very unusual tasting (in a good way) pear and ginger strudel with almond ice cream. Good stuff.

Having done the touristy thing and visited the Museum we noticed the Friends shop and restaurant was nearby and ranked well on TA. Prices a touch more than we expected, but the meals were ok, only problem is the serving sizes are very small, so taking into account the prices being on the expensive side and the small servings, in...

Personally, I think there's a little too much hype about this place. The dishes we ordered tasted just average and the drink menu is a bit overpriced (compared to other restaurants around the area). Definitely catered to tourists, hense it was busy but they did a good job preparing our food in a timely manner. On the plus side, the... More
