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.

The food is lovely and they are a teaching restaurant. Upstairs you can browse the souvenirs made by the people the foundation are training. Good story but the food stands up on its own feet

Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff and very nice food. A little more expensive than other local restaurants, but worth it. I suggest booking if possible, it is busy but this does not affect the service. Also offer the deep fried tarantulas!

We were recommended to try the Friends Restaurant by our hotel, but having the feeling that this would perhaps be a tourist trap and heavily crowded, we opted for its sister restaurant, Romdeng The restaurant is off the beaten track, but definitely worth a visit. It is for a good cause, and the food was great. The fish amok was... More

Nice setting for a meal and the best thing was that they have certain items on their menu that you can order as a half serve. This means as a solo traveller you can try lots of different items! Bonus!

I take groups of people to Cambodia and a visit to Romdeng is a must. The chance to try fried tranchaa always breaks the ice. But the food is great and the drinks superb. The service is excellent and surroundings lovely Brilliant place that helps train Cambodia's Youth

This restaurant is part of network of restaurants in Cambodia that train local folks in how to serve picky Westerners (like me) and build a career path for themselves IN ADDITION to funding schools for the children of the community. We also ate at Friends the Restaurant, a sister establishment in the city that was also great. The food was... More

The place is beautiful, old colonial house and a peaceful garden. Most of the staff are former street youth. We really enjoyed the food.

We loved everything about Romdeng restaurant. All the food was amazing, the staff were really attentive, friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere too. Standout dishes were the Khmer fish curry in banana leaf, the sticky rice balls dessert with pinapple and chilli and the tamarind pancakes with grille banana and coconut icecream.

My partner and I had a great night out here. The food was really interesting and tasty, the decor was great with lots of brightly coloured artwork, the atmosphere was lively, the service was very good (some of the trainees seemed a bit nervous but were closely supported by their trainers), and we loved that we were contributing to a...

Went to this restaurant without reservation & it was super packed! Luckily was able to get a table after waiting a few minutes but noticed most ppl reserved in advance. Food was delicious and staff was very kind & attentive. Love Romdeng's mission to educate PP youth & you could see the kids were all eager to please & succeeding... More
