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.

Nice ambience and service... Food on the pricey side - but cheaper than Malis - but must say the fare was rather average tasting. Same NGO as Friends.

The restaurant is a must to visit. Most people will go to Friends (their sister restaurant) but Romdeng is more beautiful, the menu is equally good, and you'll have a seat while there are ten people waiting for a spot in Friends. If you are interested, they sell a cook book with Cambodian dishes. Good food, royal portions, heart warming... More

Really nice atmosphere here. Attentive staff, training, keen and yet slightly nervous but very polite. English training will help them and the food was tasty and well presented. Tarantulas obligatory and they appeared fresh and full of energy when we saw them in the kitchen. Ants with beef n chilli excellent

You must try Romdeng when your are in PP! We visited for dinner after having lunch in its sister restaurant, Friends. We were attracted to its nonprofit mission, intrigued by the photographs we saw, and hoping to have a great Cambodian meal. The mission behind the organization impressed us.

Exciting menu, beautiful setting. The service was excellent, as it was quiet they didn't seem to know what to do with themselves, but really lovely and they all help each other with their English! Would recommend.

If you've explored Phnom Penh like me you'll find that even though certain places call themselves a Khmer restaurant the food will be pretty average in the sense similar dishes could be found around the world. Getting an idea of the Khmer culture is not easy, sure Loc Lac can be found everywhere but where are all the traditional dishes?... More

Had a meal here with my wife at the beginning of August. The food was excellent and the staff were great. I loved the tarantulas, they were absolutely delicious, I highly recommend them

Some concept as FRIENDS restaurant where street kids are learned how to work in a restaurant. Very nice location in a colonial house. It even has a small pool. The menu has some interesting choices such as fried tarantula.

Had a great meal with 6 friends and family. Lovely meal, very reasonably priced. Service a little haphazard but it all came in the end. Would definitely recommend a visit.
