“Great for visitors and kids!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

I love taking friends to Marum - the perfect combination of clever Khmer cuisine and a social contribution to training and assisting the less well off. Our party of 9 had an excellent evening - the kids especially loved the unusual local ingredients like red tree ants. The small servings allowed uor party of 9 to choose tapas-style, so that individual preferences were accomodated easily. The deserts were just delicious - a great family-friendly venue!

“A must for a wonderful meal in Siem Reap”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

This wonderful dining spot was located close to our hotel. Food, atmosphere and service was fantastic...staff were young locals learning the restaurant business so teachers were there supervising everything they did. Food was tasty and really innovative. Highly recommend!

“Eat there!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

We had the best meals in Siem Reap there. This is a restaurant run by Friends International, which aims to educate street kids in the hospitality arts. At this one they have succeeded really well. It's tucked awy in a back street between Wat Polanka and the Catholic chirch,and a bit hard to find, but worth hunting down. Nothing fancy, but each dish really tasty and well presented. Small but adequate wine list, Six of us ate well, with 2 bottles of wine, for $US100 total. Yoiu can eat cheaper in SR, but not as well.

“Good food, lovely setting”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Both the setting and the meals we shared were really nice but probably the best thing was knowing that we were contributing just a little bit to help some young people to get a better chance in life.

“Good restaurant, great initiative!”
Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

We went to Friends to Phnom Penh twice as we were in PP and liked it so much that we decided to give its "sister's restaurant" a go. The environment is beautiful and the staff is welcoming, kind and eagger to learn and to please you. We were less impressed by the food however than what we had at Friends. It was good but just lacking a bit of a kick. Maybe we just did not pick well! It is still a lovely place worth trying.
