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.

I travel on a regular basis to Phnom Penh and always visit Romdeng. Over the past 3 years this restaurant has been my #1 choice. The ambience, service, food and general overall performance is great. The pricing is very reasonable, the food variety is wide and varied for all.

Although slightly overpriced (perhaps cos it's practically only frequented by tourists) the menu is varied, the staff is friendly (some are teachers and some learners) and you get the chance to taste authentic Khmer dishes...deep fried tarantulas included. Don't expect massive portions neither. Profits go for the NGO running the place. And still very affordable by Western standards.

This is an amazing place and my travel companion fancied the tarantula - so they brought a live one to the table. We bottled it but the food was incredible and the service very charming

A very nice house and garden, well decorated and cosy especially in the evenings. A large variety of khmer dishes, an elaborated choice and a very elegant cuisine. Probably one of the moste expensive restaurant we had but we speak about an average ticket of 15 $ with drinks. So go for it !

What's better than dining for a cause? Romdeng is part of the NGO called Friends, dedicated to saving lives and building futures for children, youth and their families across SEA and the world. We were waited by students and teachers, identified by the titles on their uniforms. The food served are really delicious that left us wanting even more. Though... More

Definitely worth a check out if you are visiting Phnom Penh for the first time. I dared my male colleagues to have the fried tarantulas with me. It was... INTERESTING! We also ordered the beef fried with lemongrass and red ants but I couldn't stomach the winged insects. Even though I had the spider! :)

We went with friends and shared meals last night. Fabulous venue - tropical and lush garden outside and pool. Inside lots more tables. Training restaurant for homeless young people and we had the best service. Food is idyllic. Good servings as well as fresh and richly flavoured. We loved it so much we went back next night and also bought... More

We went as a group for lunch and the service (by the students) was great. They were enthusiastic and polite and it was lovely. I had eggplant dip and bread and banana fritters with piña colada ice cream. Delicious. And we shopped up a storm for the charity. Must visit location either here or at friends.

We had a group of 12 people so we got to try many dishes, and nothing disappointed. The chicken curry was outstanding, as were the rice pancakes. And yes, if you are adventuresome, try the tarantula!
