During our visit to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, our tuktuk driver suggested Romdeng restaurant and we had dinner. It's a surprise to see ants and crispy tarantula but we never tried such exotic recipe and instead ordered amok and crispy noodles, and sweet potato spring rolls. The food was really tasty and delicious, not pricey. About the service, slowly but surely,... More

On our trip to Indo China, we have managed to visit many restaurants/cafes where the aim is to help disadvantaged people (who all work in the places). So, we decided that Romdeng was the place to go. We has a very pleasant meal - well-cooked and great value for money. The service was a little slow, but we didn't find... More

If you have an adventurous palette, the spiders are meant to be a lot like soft shell crab! I couldn't do it! The food was delicious and the service friendly (though a little slow, but they are training!). Exceptional value for money.

Came here with three friends based on the reviews and we weren't disappointed. The food was fantastic and was probably overall the best meal we had in Cambodia. The restaurant is beautiful and has lovely French colonial architecture. The staff are attentive and friendly. Would recommend this place as a must visit while in Phnom Penh.

Khmer food - you can see that they have made an effort to think creatively around the composition and ingredients of some of teh dishes. The food itself was fine, not particularly memorable. Service was good, but it would have been nice to see some of the trainees getting more directly involved. They only seemed to be observing on the... More

Many people come for the spiders (I didn't) but I've been here twice now, and watched many a tourist come to eat this delicacy. If spiders aint' your thing, then the rest of the menu will not disappoint. I got the fish ceveche (A-Mazing), everyone in the group loved their meals. The restaurant itself is lovely, and there is a... More

We had been recommended to go to the Foreign Correspondents Club on our first night in Phnom Penh, which was also my birthday. We enjoyed drinks there but I didn't fancy it as my birthday dinner. So over our strawberry mojitos, we scanned TripAdvisor for an alternative with Khmer cuisine. We picked Romdeng because of an earlier review that said... More

This place serves up some tasty cuisine for a great cause with a great atmosphere. The restaurant works with local Phnom Penh kids in an effort to get them involved in the culinary field and off the streets. They have a nice gallery inside with artwork and cookbooks with all proceeds going to a good cause. The food was great.... More

Just opposite to Town View Hotel (Khan Duan Penh) we happened to see bus load of tourists alighting and out of curious decided to try delicious Khmer cuisine. Highly recommended tasty food and wonderful service in a beautiful French villa, and for those more adventurous they can try the deep fried Tarantula and and also fried red ants with beef.... More
