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.

After urban forage was fully booked we took a recommendation from the organiser to try Romdeng, what fortunate luck! Expensive but we were not paying for the "do-good" feeling, food and service was unlike anything we experienced in SE Asia, reminded me of home. Tried the trantula and the special tiger prawn dish. Atmosphere was romantic and the bonus was... More

Romdeng is in old colonial villa. Beautiful garden with small pool. It was so beautiful and peaceful. Staff was very helpful and kind. In restaurant served Cambodian food. In menu are some rarity as crispy tarantulas. I eat tarantulas as starter, also Muslim beef with chilli and fried bananas. All with good Lao beer. Total cost less than 20 $.... More

The trainee staff are very polite and doing their best, but service was a little slow and apprehensive. I really wanted to love this place but was let down by the food. Maybe a little harsh as I had been to Friends the same day and was comparing the two. The cause is definitely worth a visit, helping former street... More

This is one of those relaxing places in Southeast Asia catering to your social conscience but still offering decent enough food and service as well as generally good atmosphere. Yes, I did try the famous tarantula dish as a starter. It was an experience, as they say. The other dishes were generally good but not so special. What I did... More

I did not book and looked very busy but they managed to find us a table. The restaurant trains under-privileged/orphaned children which made it it feel all the more satisfying that your money is going towards helping others. Ordered the famous tarantula dish in which I just had to ask a few questions about. The waiter came back with a... More

This was the first restaurant I ate at in Cambodia and I'm glad I did! Not only was it a nice introduction to the cuisine, but it helped those in need. We were seated inside, which was a bit odd, as it felt like we were actually in the shop. Still, I'd recommend giving this place a try.

then Romdeng restaurant is the place to go. But there is also very friendly staff, teachers and trainees, get here is education, a project for young street people to learn new skills, earn salary and have a stable job and future.
