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.

Great feel to the place, we had a lovely table by the pool. The food was exceptional as was the service. Try the tamarind pancakes, by far my favourite dish of the trip. There was nothing we could fault about this place.

If there is a better modern take on traditional Cambodian food, I have no idea where it is. The recipes are creative and fragrant, though rooted in a very distinctive culinary tradition; it is beautifully presented and served; and you eat in a good cause. You can see, with your own eyes, that the kitchen is spotless, and can be completely sure that the food will bring you nothing but joy. The menu is long and thoughtful (lest anyone leap to a wrong conclusion, the one tarantula item is surprisingly close to soft shell crab tempura), and there are no duds. A gem of a place.

Romdeng is run by Friends International, an NGO which helps street kids into reliable employment. They have 3 training restaurants, Romdeng is the "quality dining" option. It is set in a beautiful old French Villa, very 'Indochine' atmospheric. The food is 'modern takes on Cambodian Classics'. It is absolutely gorgeous food. The service is excellent. We always go to Romdeng as a special treat.
