“Don´t waste money on Pub Street, eat here!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

For the same money you would spent in most restaurants in pub street you will get amazing food here. As recommended on the menu we shared a few smaller dishes, a great way to try a lot of things. All delicious. The setting in the garden is beautiful but it seemed to get quite busy in the outside area over dinner time, so it might be a good idea to reserve a table. On top of that the restaurant offers great opportunities to former street children who work there as trainee chefs and waiter. So eating there will also support an amazing project.

“Amazing trainning restaurant”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

Amazing restaurant a little bit far from the pub street, but worth the visit. Is a trainning restaurant, partner of the also amazing Friends, in Phnom Penh. The garden is beautiful and the food is very good. As Friends, Marum has a condensed menu, mostly of tapas, small dishes you can keep ordering and share. The smothies are mind blowers!

“Fantastic food in a social responsible way!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

Had diner with friends in the very cosy garden of this restaurant. Warmly been welcomed by the "teachers" and their "students". Food was excellent, as well as the smoothies & cocktails. A fantastic project where street kids are taking in charge and coached by their teachers in the hope they might some day work independently in another or their own restaurant.

“The best dining experience”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Make the effort to go here and you will be rewarded! Modern Khmer cuisine that would have Michelin stars in Europe but here is affordable and served in a delightful garden setting by enthusiastic young staff (check out the background on this place - fantastic). After our first evening I booked immediately for the following day. It really is that good.

“Best food in siem reap”
Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

This was by far the best meal we had in siem reap. It was creative but uniquely Cambodian, the outdoor seating is very pleasant, and staff of trainee street kids are warm and obviously being well trained. You will leave full, happy, and with a warm and fuzzy feeling about the organization.
