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.

Romdeng Phnom Penh. Located street 174 almost opposite Cardamom Hotel. Nice atmosphere and friendly service. Good selection of food. Food is nice and tasty. Try tarantulas or red ants. Worth of visit.

We went to Romdeng for the Tarantula experience which was included in our Lunch. Service and Kitchen are doing a really great job which made us enjoy our Lunch to the fullest. The Atmosphere in Romdeng ist very Casual and laid back with a nice decent local touch. The Fact that Romdeng is a great piece of giving something back... More

Visited Romdeng on my last night in Phnom Penh and had high expectations. I'm glad to say I wasn't disappointed. There is a wide selection of Cambodian dishes (no, I didn't get the tarantula) as well as good drinks options. The fish amok is outstanding and the service is good. Make sure you book ahead as we were turned away... More

Definitely worth a visit, and the food was delicious. I love the social impact behind the restaurant, so our group did not mind the extra cost involved. If you're looking for an "authentic" experience, the food is authentic, but you will not see any locals eating here.

This is a good restaurant with interesting dishes in the menu (such as tarantulas). Upmarket by Cambodian standards but worth it as the restaurant provides work opportunities to the underprivileged youth. A meal for 2 (1 glass of wine, 1 bottle of water, 2 main dishes and a half, 2 desserts) approximately 40 euros.

The food is good but what really makes the place is its setting and cause. It is more expensive than other places but definitely well worth it. Try to come early as the kitchen closes very early for the students to rest and study the next day.

We went there once for an experience but I don't think we will go back again. Service was a bit slow.. I think they didn't have enough staff. Dishes were just ordinary... if you want the taste of Cambodian foods... not here... foods were quite bland. Overall it's like a restaurant for tourists.

Not a place I would recommend. Pricey for the area and the food was ok but nothing special. It does raise money for a good cause, but with the price you pay for the meal they can afford to.

A busy restaurant serving up food for a good cause. The quality of the food here is better than what you would get in Cambodia. The food is tasty and the staff are professional. They train up disadvantaged youth in their kitchen and restaurant and also sell items that also go towards a charity. Enjoy tarantulas to eat as well,... More
