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.

What a fantastic restaurant. Make sure that you make a reservation. The staff in this restaurant are street children who have been given a chance to be trained to work in the hospitality industry. They are all so cute. The food is of an outstanding quality. Make sure that you try there seafood served in a coconut, what flavour!!

Came here as our last night in Phnom Penh and it was pleasant. We made sure to book this place in advance online, and I highly recommend it because it does get full fairly quickly. The restaurant decor is lovely and the staff was very friendly. The food was good (nothing outstanding), but the presentation of the dishes were beautiful.... More

Only 1 dish outstanding rest was very average. Compared to so many other restaurants in Phnom Penh this is expensive to other food. Ok staff friendly, money does go to help young folks so all in all give it a try.

Yes it is a project that helps street children in the program to work at the restaurant. And it's a good cause. The food is good craftsmanship and has been given a stylish twist in serving on the plate. It does not change the authentic taste. Relax enjoy the food and the atmosphere in the garden. Remember wine that day... More

The food was ok nothing special though and twice the waitress came to see us to tell us our food was coming and to apologies for the wait. It's ok but it's nothing special, we've had better meals and better service in the 'lower' end restaurants located on street 172.

i had checked this place out o! Trip advisor but then we asked the hotel for Khymer dining recommendations and this was number one. Without reservation we had to settle for a seat inside and enjoy the lovely architecture and art. Tough choice! We tried two starters, the pork belly in sticky rice (number 1) and the duck pancakes (no... More

We were told that the Romdeng restaurant was the best Cambodian cuisine in Phnom Penh, we were really looking forward to the evening. However the food although very nice was toned down for western tastes. The evening we dined at Romdeng there wasn’t one local person in the restaurant apart from the staff.

This restaurant is a teaching facility run by students and their teachers. For all that, it is quite upmarket for Phnom Penh in the upper middle price-range. They have standard Cambodian fare, but one can step outside the comfort zone as we did and have Crispy Tarantulas (tasty once one gets over their looks) and Red Fire Ant & Beef... More
