Description: 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.

I can only concur with the previous recent reviews. The food was delicious, the staff were courteous, thoughtful and, in one case, quite entertaining, the setting is, yes, a little oasis, and the work that is being done by this charity is clearly very worthwhile. The food was very reasonably priced and very cheap by western standards. We didn't do the spiders or the red tree ants because it seemed a bit gimmicky, but the Tonle Sap fish was wonderful. You do need to book unless you get there early evening.

As the sign says on the way in, so much more than Spiders, however i did come here for that very reason. To eat here is to give a little back to the street youth of Cambodia. Surrounded by the streetkids artwork, the food is great, service is great, staff are great!! We started with the Spiders (3 for $4.00) and once you get over the notion of putting it in your mouth they are extremely tasty. Do yourself a favour and give them a go (taste like a fried prawn/shrimp). Main courses were just as delicous and they have a huge range of both western and khmer food to try, all washed down with cheap bear or inexpensive wine. Take a little extra time to go upstairs and look at the shop. This place is very busy so book ahead or be prepared to wait a little (but not too long)

All the good reviews on tripadvisor are true, this is a little oasis from all the hub-bub. Not so easy to find but worth it when you do. Lovely garden setting and really unique food, and of course the cause makes it even more worth while.

This restaurant is more expensive than the local venues, but all profits go to a great cause. The food was excellent, well presented and I even tried some of the beef and red ant curry. They do serve Tarantulas though with the staff taking great delight in bringing round a few live ones for people to hold!

The third time we tried to go was a Monday and it was closed! So disappointing that we decided there were no other restaurants worth eating at and we went back to the hotel. All the food is great! It's not authentic / traditional Khmer food but that's what I like - the food caters to the western taste! We also went to Friends but found the atomosphere in Romdeng much better and less crowded (we didn't have to wait for seats both times). The drinks at $3 was so good, we tried them all and I like the pink pomelo and guava the best! GO there and eat well!
