Description: 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.

We liked the ambiance. We liked the food. We liked how the staff tried hard to explain about the menus. It's a bit high for the price, but the portion is generous. For some menu might be available for half portion, we suggest you to choose that if you would eat alone. We tried the tarantula here, what an experience.... More

We decided to visit this restaurant after reading all the good work it does in the local community and we were not disappointed!!! We arrived and were waited on hand and food. Each member of staff has a tshirt indicating if they are a trainer or a trainee and you can actively see the team members being trained. The food... More

We have just returned from 3 days in Phnom Pehn and we where fortunate enough to be recommended to dine at Romdeng, a must for everyone. Don't miss out, the ethos behind this company is truly admirable and the food is great too.

We highly recommend this restaurant for lots of reasons....It is great to see such a worthwhile and positive opportunity being offered to these kids and they really performed well as waiters. The setting was beautiful and the food was delicious- we really enjoyed all of our meals.

Went with people who speak Khmer and have lived in Phnom for ten to twenty years. I went back for lunch and in a few minutes I am going back again. Some dishes are so traditional they are not found often. Others are imaginative and maybe westernized. So what! Yummy.

We came here after checking trip advisor reviews and were a little underwhelmed. The salad was kind of flavorless and the beef was almost too salty to eat. We ordered some traditional deserts, which was also inedible. We may have ordered the wrong things on the menu, but for us Romdeng went 0-for-3.

As the reviews state, this is a restaurant for a cause. The setting is beautiful. MAKE reservations online and call to confirm as this place is always fully booked. Food is catered for Westerners so it is not very spicy. The tarantulas were ok, fun to say I tried it, but would not request again.

After reading about this restaurant and the great things they were doing for disadvantaged kids my friend and I decided to try it out. We had probably the best food here that we had in the whole of Cambodia. There were some adventurous things on the menu (red tree ants) but also plenty of other (less adventurous) authentic Khmer cuisine.... More
