Location and contact

Open Monday to Sunday from 11am to 11pm (kitchen closes 10pm) 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.

Went here for dinner one eve and it was a nice little place. Had the fish amok which I’d highly recommend and some noodle salad. Ice cream deserts were interesting flavours!

Enjoy some traditional Cambodian dishes. This restaurant is a training kitchen that supports up-skilling of under-privileged children. Food is delicious!

The amok is one of the best. We go back every day for the jackfruit and rhambutan smoothie. The gift shop is also very nice.

We have travelled in SEA for a few months now and had some amazing food and some...not amazing food. This was a great find. The food was excellent with great flavours and there was a good selection of veggie options, trad Khmer food and others....More

The fish amok is delicious! I’ve never tasted anything like this. The coconut cream complements the fish and the curry is spicy to the right degree. I ate two bowls of jasmine rice with it. I wish I could have more.

Along with its sister restaurant Friends, Romdeng trains and employs disadvantaged former street kids. However, there is no need to visit simply out of sympathy; the food is excellent! Genuine Khmer dishes served with skill and grace. The only place in Phnom Penh where you...More

Restaurant closes not what Trip Advisor actually states. We arrived 40 mins before stated closing time. Was pretty disappointed with incorrect information. Please double check before going.

The khmer delicacies, the fresh juices and fruit shakes, the restaurant atmosphere and the attention of service, provide an excellent lunch, dinner or afternoon break. A good local touch also dedicated to training young Cambodians for work and social integration.

Hello I was there last week, we got a table straight away (2 of us). It was busy though. In regards to the menu I am pretty sure they also had frog and ants along with tarantulas, so unless they’ve changed their menu I... More
