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 dined as a family, and loved that this training restaurant offers half serves so you can order a few things to taste. It all looked so yummy that we wanted to try it all. The kids honey soy chicken was just right for them. We tried Makpet Pork and Beef with Red Ants, vegetable stir fry and Crispy Pork... More

The staff are wonderful, the setting tranquil and our food was stunning. Prices are very fair - average $6 US for a meal. Out of the 20 restaurants I have eaten at in Cambodia, Romdeng would be near the top of my list and certainly top for Phnom Penh.

Visited this lovely restaurant with my daughter and had a really terrific meal. The building is open air and tropical set with a lush green garden and pool. The air is heady with fragrant cooking smells and the feeling is just so typically south east asian. You know you have arrived in Cambodia! Staff in this establishment were friendly and... More

Everything was more than perfect during our dinner. Delicious creative food, fast and attentive service and relaxed and fun atmosphere. The fried rice noodles salad was amazing and so is the fish ceviche. This place is a must have dinner

We were in a group of 8 people and ordered a number of the local delicious delicacies such as fried triantcula, crickets, silk worms and frogs. Worth the experience and safe to eat. You can order regular meals as well. Very good quality food, great atmosphere and great cause. Must visit

We had supper at the Romdeng restaurant opposite the Cardamom hotel which serves as a training centre for street children. The food served is a bit “outlandish” for some tastes but the meal we had was very good and well presented. I think it is an excellent concept and nice setting. Recommended - that is what travelling is all about... More

Excellent training restaurant... Loved all the dishes ... and the experience. It was a little warm upstairs but they brought Us a fan and it was just fine. Tried the Tarantulas everyone raves about them but after a bite of a leg (scared westerner here) had to spit it out - but the dipping sauce was terrific

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Romdeng. I had the fish Amok which had really nice flavours and was a good portion size. My husband had the red tree ant and beef stir fry which looked terrifying but was really interesting. We were too chicken to have the tarantulas but we were told they were quite delicious haha. Great experience!
