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.

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.

Me and around 12 volunteers made reservations by phone a day before. The food was very good. I had a very satisfying Amouk dish, you can never go wrong with Amouk in Cambodia! While we waited for our meals we were offered to play with live tarantulas! They were harmless of course, the fangs were removed. It was very exiting,... More

Went here with a group of friends to try some great local cuisine and loved it. A little disappointed they'd run out of tarantulas though. Don't worry they have plenty of non-bug food on the menu. The Fish Amok and Beef Lok Lak were both fantastic.

Came across this restaurant while searching for places to eat spiders, aside fom the novelty factor this restaurant employees at risk young adults to give them working skills. Settingwise it good, the tarantulas tasted better than expected with the bonus of playing with a live one. We had to mains, braised pork which was superb plus the ant and beef... More

We came here for a set lunch with a group. The food was delicious and the staff very helpful. Lovely table in a beautiful garden with even a swimming pool. The staff took all the time to show us around en even showed the spiders that you can eat there. Small shop upstairs that sells souvenirs. The restaurant supports young... More

The restaurant itself is beautiful and lends itself well to al fresco dining. The food was great; healthy, light and full of flavour. Would definitely recommend. If you like it there, then definitely visit Friends (also in Phom Penh for a creative menu tapas style).

Excellent food, taste and presentation. Service very good, staff highly motivated to learn. Location is good as well. You need to reserve in advance.

The food here was good (not the best, but certainly serviceable), and the cause makes it well worth a visit. We stopped in without reservations and were seated without reservations immediately. We shared five dishes - most notable were the pumpkin laap and the seafood in coconut curry. Though more expensive than many other restaurants in the city, the service... More

The place was full on a Thursday. And we hadn't booked. It's a training restaurant, so it could have been like getting behind a learner-driver. Frustrating, slow, trying but we've all been there. Not a bit of it. It was masterful, easy, pleasant, comfortable, good Khmer food, quick, efficient, tasty and authentic. Beautiful setting, easy to get to. Our French... More
