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.

Recently had lunch at Romdeng which is located in a lovely two-storey colonial house surrounded by a lovely garden. I had a great table in the garden under an awning. It is part of the Friends International/TREE global alliance of training restaurants - a social enterprise training disadvantaged young people in hospitality. The service was excellent - very professional and... More

Very good Amok served here. The atmosphere was good and so was the service. A few of our group tried the tarantulas!!! Crazy! Definitley would recommend visiting just for the spider experience! But all the other food was fantastic as well!

Cold beer, main course & dessert for $10.50. Service was outstanding and you could really see that the wait staff took pride in creating a memorable experience. I asked my server what he recommended and he suggest #24, which proved to be amazing. Chicken curry with vegetables and a mini-baguette to soak up all that yumminess. He also suggested the... More

Trying this appetizer was my highlight of our Cambodian trip! Mission accomplished! The fried frogs legs with beans, brinjals, and other herbs was excellent too. My wife ordered toasted eggplant with chicken. It was also very good. And she adored the mango ice cream after that! Total bill came to about $24. Great evening meal.

My gf and I had the pork belly and sticky rice appetiser which was a bit short on the pork belly, but it was still delicious and all the food was really well presented. The red fire ants with beef and basil was delicious but quite spicy! Little pricey by Cambodian standards but it's a good cause and ridiculously cheap... More

We had a great meal here. Even though it may be a bit touristy to eat the tarantulas we did it anyway. The food was great and the service very good. We were seated in side which was a bit of a shame as the outdoor area looked great but that did not detract from a great night

We lucked into the last table outside and had one of the nicest nights in Phnom Penh. Despite being flat out the staff were courteous, efficient and helpful. The menu is extensive and does all of the Khmer standards as well as anywhere we ate in our 3 weeks in Cambodia; and there are a few dishes you will not... More

Went here after reading reviews and we were very happy with food, service and outdoor setting. My partner had to try the tarantulas, which were tastefully displayed on the plate! Food was lovely if a little expensive but it's a great cause so we were happy to pay, wine was reasonable price too. Went to bathroom after meal and found... More
