Great food and atmosphere. Highly recommend. Great range of dishes, the fish cakes were devine. We arrived without a booking quite late, but that wasn't an issue.

“Spot on food, brilliant atmosphere!!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

2nd evening with one of the "Friends" restaurants - spot on again!

Last night we were at 'Romdeng'; and we were very impressed, so tried the 'Friends restaurant' tonight (from trip advisor we were a little put off as we heard of long queues, but we didn't find this a problem at 8:45pm - FYI the kitchen it closes at 9pm).

The staff are very friendly, the food is brilliant, the atmosphere is fantastic and to top it off it is all for a superb cause!!

We are already planning tomorrow for the 'Le Café Mith Samlanh' (also in the "Friends" group in PP).

We would 100% recommend!

“Great food all for a good cause”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We visited Friends twice on a recent trip. We enjoyed our first dinner so much we went back for lunch the next day. We tried a large selection of dishes over our 2 visits. Everything was really tasty. The cocktails were great too.
On the second visit we ordered 3 tapas for the 2 of us - way too much food!
