“Great Khmer food and lovely service in a beautiful garden setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2011

I visited this restaurant as it was close to my accommodation and was recommended in my guide book as a "cause restaurant". It's run by an NGO and is connected to a hotel and shop that sells handicrafts made by disadvantaged women (of which there are many in Cambodia). The food was delicious and the wait staff very attentive. The fish laap was my favourite dish and the mango-passionfruit smoothie was just what I needed after a hot day walking around the city. Try this place, you won't be disappointed!

“Worth giving a tour!!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2010

Went there just to see if it's really what is written in Lonely Planet but was surprised (positively) by experiences of nice atmosphere of the beautiful garden and nice food and smiling faces, staffs and trainees (training center of Nyemo Cambodia NGO).

It appeared that they just set up a very personal touch of only 7 rooms with high level of decoration with little price range from 25-50 usd per night for two people.

“Great food, great cause...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2010

Le Rit's is run by Nyemo, an NGO that amongst other things, provides vulnerable families, particularly women with vocational skills, medical and social counselling, career placement and ongoing support to empower them and improve their quality of life.

But eating there isn't just so you can support a good cause, the food is great and reasonably priced. There is a selection of asian and european style food and the service is great.

In the same building, there is also a Guesthouse...I stayed here for three nights and it was probably the nicest place I stayed in Cambodia. Rooms are beautifully decorated and maintained and they have great extras such as free wi-fi and a free laundry service. There is also a gift-shop that sells the items that have been made right there in the workshop and are made by the women on Nyemo's vocational training programmes.

I would definitely recommend the restaurant, the guesthouse and the gift shop...all three offer unique experiences and are supporting a fantastic cause at the same time.
