This restaurant is part of an organization that offers training for the hospitality industry for disadvantaged local youth. The restaurant is staffed by students and their teachers. The food was very good and the restaurant is located in a french colonial building with a beautiful garden that even includes a pool.

Here is a place with great reviews so why not check it out. It was maybe 2 thirds full but we still had a choice of inside or out. Outside you are still protected from the elements and inside was open and light. The staff are remarkable in customer care and service speed. We ordered food that did not come... More

It's a real oasis in Phnom Penh (a colonial house with a beautiful garden). The food is amazing (we tried the laab, the prawn and pomelo salad, the crispy pork belly with Kampot peppercorns, the amok, and for a little adventure, the crispy tarantulas). Everything was perfect. They serve nice cocktails and they have a small, but good selection of... More

Great Cambodian food. The menu was adventurous - red tree ants in the soup - which I liked. Also really liked that the profits seemed to be ploughed into supporting Cambodian children. If you only visit two restaurants in Phnom Penh I'd recommend Romping for the local cuisine, and Khema for the amazing European food and lovely setting.

Visited with a group of friends in the evening. I would rate the food a 4/5, good but not good enough to stay in my memory after two months. I remember it for the dining atmosphere, a must if you like colonial style architecture. Not cheap but not expensive either, it's for a good cause. You may want to ask... More

The place and the staff are lovely. The food is nothing special (except the fried tarantulas if you are up for that) but in a place like Phom Penh where -sorry to say- local and street food are far from great, I guess this place is a safe option if you don't want to go for Western. We ordered two... More

Such a great place, wonderful service, exceptional options for a wide variety of dietary needs including vegan, gluten free and those who are a little on the picky side. Wonderful drinks menu, great atmosphere overlooking a pool and fan to keep us cool. At just a few steps from our motel what more could you want

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.
