My husband and I visited 'Friends' for dinner and were so impressed we went back again the next night! Excellent selection of dishes, yummy drinks and a philosophy you are proud to support. The smoky eggplant dip is yummo!

Went for lunch at 12 noon so no queue. Service and food were excellent. Pumpkin soup and chicken stir fry were really tasty and good portions. Free water was topped up during the meal. The students did a great job. The prices are very reasonable. The restaurant is easy to find, close to the National Museum.

After eating at Sandan in Sihanoukville, eating at their sister restaurant was a must. Book a table to avoid disappointment. Excellent fresh and innovative food tapas style. If you're in Phnom Penh then this is the place to eat. I can't say any more then all the other reviews.

Excellent food and service, a must do in Phnom Penh. Lots of food and drinks choices. Can get busy in evening, so if there in season, suggest you book.

We had a great dinner at Friends last weekend. We hadn't made a reservation (would recommend making a reservation as it got really busy), but the friendly staff were able to accommodate us. The tapas selection is extensive and so delicious. The portions are quite generous; we finished everything, but were full! Because it's tapas and you pay per dish, it is slightly more expensive than other restaurants in Phnom Penh, but well worth it. Not just for the food, but to support the trainees and the great cause. Highly recommended!
