Description: Authentic Khmer dishes and irresistible charcoal-fired pizza! Established in 1998 by Neth and his wife, Thavy, Veiyo Tonle is a family restaurant with a vast food offering. Nestled along the picturesque riverfront, Veiyo Tonle is the convergence of western cuisine classics and Cambodian local delights like Loc Lac (stir-fried beef) and Fish Amok. Art is the soul of a nation, a soul of each country. Cambodian government has been trying to show its arts to international guests to know about Cambodia; especially Cambodian government has been encouraging Cambodian in this generation to study art classes or even allowed them to study arts with free of charge. Each government is trying very hard to inspire its people to preserve arts that there is an ideology raised "When the arts fall down, the nation will be destroyed, but when the arts is glorious, the nation will be prosperous." Make sure you drop by on the weekends for a treat of traditional Apsara dances performed by the multi-talented NCCLA children. Take in the scenic views of the Tonle Sap river at Veiyo Tonle, which is nestled at the heart of the breath taking riverfront. Intricately decorated in fine rattan infused with the local Cambodian crafts, Veiyo Tonle packs in an authentic Cambodian dining experience you wouldn't want to miss. Veiyo Tonle restaurant Open Daily for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (Monday - Sunday) From: 6:30am till Late

“Excellent local Khmer food where you are eating for a good cause”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

We are here in May after a recommendation from a local street kid selling books. Restaurant is riverside in the tourist area of Phnom Penh. Most of the staff are orphans & work in the restaurant when not studying at school or uni. Staff were incredibly professional & friendly & explained the difference it has made to their lives by being with NCCLA Orphanage. We met a 21yr old male staff member who explained he is studying Engineering at uni, & an 18 yr old female staff member studying medicine at uni. Tasty food from an extensive menu at reasonable prices in a 'good cause' restaurant. Would definitely eat here again if in PP.

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

I had the mango chicken and rice, beautiful, worth the visit and love the not for profit set up. We were lucky to find this place as it doesn't appear to be on the trip advisor maps.

“Charity & quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

This non-profit restaurant offers good local and some equally good western food. Not the cheapest on local scale but its income goes directly for the foundation supporting of some dozens of poor Cambodian kids.
The easy-to-find restaurant is clean, friendly, the service is great.
Recommended, not only for the food but for the cause it represents.
