You can't go wrong with the TREE Alliance restaurants. The one in Siem Reap is fabulous as well. The menu is diverse and it's like eating at a fancy restaurant for a fraction of the price. You're helping out a fantastic cause and the servers did an excellent job serving our large group. You'll walk out full for sure and... More

The restaurant is situated in a lovely old colonial building with a lovely garden. Even if you are not fond of Khmer food it is worth wile to visit and why not trying spiders and ants for once in your life?

If you come to this place, do not skip the tarantulas. They are crunchy and simply taste like... chicken. We tried the other dishes as well and they were fine. Not great, though. But the place is cool, and has lots of souvenirs to buy. I ended up spending more money on their souvenirs than on food.

I love this place. Seating around the pool grabbing some food with cocktails is priceless. For the brave one, try the tarantulas, crispy and tasty. ;-)

Lovely food. Another great training restaurant so you can enjoy the delicious food and feel good about it. The menu is diverse and delicious. It also has some exciting and scary options like cricket shakes and tarantula appetizers. Not so appetising to me but beautifully presented. The atmosphere is lovely.

I didn't like anything on the menu (not a pork eater) so I missed out on a bit, but as a group, we were very satisfied. the food was cooked really well and service was great. I like the idea behind the place, helping people from disadvantaged families.

I went twice for dinner during my stay in Phnom Penh and the food was always delicious! The menu has a wide range of choices, from peculiar stuff such as red ant soup and crunchy tarantulas (highly reccomended for the adventurous ones!) to salads, seafood and vegan dishes! The atmosphere is chilled and relaxed, sitting outside close to the pool... More

We had a great lunch here, good flavours and great service. Our dishes whilst authentic in name had little twists from the regular Khmer dishes. Great place to sit outside and enjoy the wonderful local cuisine.

Excellent food and shopping for a great cause as well. It's nice to see the senior staff training the more junior staff. The shop sells handicrafts made by parents that allows them to work to send their kids to school.

My wife booked a table for us during our visit and asked for me to try one of the only restaurants that serve Tarantulas. My gosh, was it tasteful! It almost tasted like "Soft shell crab" that we've always enjoyed. There was also a small outdoor pool by our table and the décor was a little like "Colonial" style, very... More

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.
