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.

“Authentic Cambodian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

If you're looking to try local cuisine this is the place! I would recommend the Fried Tarantula and the Stir Fried Red Tree Ants. The service is top notch and you'll be supporting a great cause. Must stop in Phnom Penh!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

This was a fantastic restaurant. Really excellent food and service. We went here and friends and liked this restaurant more, location and experience. Our favourite dish was the vegetarian crispy noodle salad. It was amazing. So nice to eat great food and support a good cause.

“Amazing Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We went here as part of a small group tour and were very impressed. Great service,delicious and inventive menu with wonderful tastes and experiences, served outdoors on their veranda. the best $10 lunch I've ever had. Really enjoyed the sauces and the red sticky rice dessert with mango and coconut was superb.

“A tourist trap with less than ordinary food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

It was my first time at Romdeng for two years, and it will be a lot more before I go back! Let's start with the positives - well, the service was friendly. That's it. The food tastes like it has been prepared days in advance. Most dishes arrive cold and has very little flavour. I think if I had added a maggi cube to a cup of boiling water, it would have had more flavour and more depth. The porc, I am sure, died of old age - tough and tasteless!

Granted, this is a tourist trap, but there is no excuse to serve such poor food.
