“Great cuisine with a cause”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

You may want to visit because Marum is a social enterprise - they give future and education to street kids. But regardless of amazing work they do, Marum is simply worth dinning at because of their "creative Khmer cuisine" as their slogan says. And don't forget visiting "Friends'n'Stuff" shop for quality souvenirs.
P.S. Book in advance as you may end up walking into full restaurant.

“Good cause establishment”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

I love what this restaurant is all about. The staff are working really hard as are the students and doing a great job. The tapas style menu is brilliant and the food really creative but not too weird. Just tasty, well presented and reasonably priced. The only issue was the bugs that fell from the tree above as well as the bitey ants. They were annoying/painful and detracted from a great evening.

“Fantastic food in fabulous surroundings”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

We went to Marum twice during our stay in Siem Reap and had outstanding food both times. We choose a selection of their small plates and all were delightful. The pineapple and chilli margarita is not to be missed as well.
The staff come from underprivileged backgrounds and are just the most delightful and charming people you could find. They are in training so be patient as they are still learning English as well. Not to be missed.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Its great to be able to give something back to the community and all while enjoying delicious food. We didn't have a booking but they squeezed us in. Amazing cocktails and delicious food. Well worth a visit, but make a booking so you're not disappointed!
