It was raining so hard when I went there and the staff were having some meeting and so I wasn't served right away. After their meeting, I asked one of the waiters if I could stay inside and he guided me to a cozy nook near the kitchen. I ordered a tarantula and some curry dish with okra. The curry... More

I was pleasantly surprised by how full of flavour the spiders were. The legs were the best bit followed by the body - be daring! The restaurant offers a wide range of local dishes in a beautiful setting. Don't miss it!

You'd be silly not to go, the food is amazing and reasonably priced. The staff make you feel welcome from the time you walk through the gate and the concept of supporting kids who have been given an opportunity to get some skills to improve their quality of life is wonderful!! Great place, great atmosphere, great staff, great cause!!

Romdeng serves Khmer food in a villa in a lovely garden setting while giving underprivileged youth a chance to learn cooking and/or serving skills as an entré into the hospitality industry - a great concept which unfortunately falls a little short. At both Romdeng in Phnom Penh and its sister restaurant Marum in Siem Reap we found the young student... More

Delicious range of food including spiders and crickets if you wish. By supporting the restaurant you are helping street kids learn skills which allows them to improve their lives. The service was fantastic and the food fabulous. Highly recommended.

there is the usual khmer delicacies such as amok (fish baked in banana leaf), but also (gulp) tarantula and red ant on the menu. a bit of an introduction to some of the real native foods. we played it safe and ate the more recognizably common dishes. it was tasty and good, and they let us sit there for a...

Went here for dinner after a massage. Tried the famed tarantulas... Took a lot of effort to convince myself to eat it! I would say it taste fine... although the lime pepper dip that came with it was amazing ( to make the dish more palatable I Guess!) I also tried the fish amok and mojito both of which are... More

Other than the unique spider dish, there isn't anything that is delicious and worth the try. Not only that it is not delicious, it is also expensive then the other khemer restaurant. They also don't serve free water like the other restaurant does. Average price per person: US$10

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.
