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.

This is an excellent restaurant that is a member of the Phnom Penh good cause dining group. The restaurant is set in a very attractive courtyard and the atmosphere is casual and romantic. The food is imaginative, different and very well cooked - I had deep fried tarantula as a starter!! Service is also friendly and efficient. A great choice for a meal to remember.

Not impressed by the food at this restaurant. It was the closest to our hotel, so went there for dinner, as we checked in late. It has a meaningful purpose, which we admired, and the service was very good - but the food was bland and seemed too westernised in comparison to other places we tried. If you visit, it's because it's a good cause, not the food. The atmosphere is nice, but it's not good value for money. Everything seemed quite expensive.

We had lunch as part of a small group, good choice on the menu, prices very reasonable and quality good. Sat outside in the shade and enjoyed the fresh air with a chilled beer. Good meal whilst supporting the local community.

We selected this restaurant based on the high listing on Tripadvisor. And we were not disappointed. We tried to get a booking the day before but were not successful. They recommended us to just come in, as they always have a table for walk-ins. We decided to come in early, at around 6.30pm, in order to get a table. We were lucky.
The restaurant has a nice garden, we even got our private fan. It is a two storey building, so if you like you can also sit inside. On the second floor they have a shop were they sell handmade stuff like wallets, bracelets, etc. made by the children and students they support.
I had the best fish amok, I tasted so far during my stay in Cambodia. As an appetizer I had a tiny wrap filled with pork Cambodian style. A very tasteful dish. Overall I had a very delicious meal. The staff is attentive and kind. I can highly recommend this place, as you also support their project where they teach and support children and students.
