The food here is great and I love the idea of helping locals to find steady employment and training them as service staff. The location is just beautiful as well. Would strongly recommend this to anyone looking for a good meal in nice setting.

We really love trying new food, but couldn't come at the spiders or crickets, but the Duck Spring rolls with tamarin dipping sauce were tops! Also love what these "good cause" places are doing in giving kids a chance and a hand up in life....More

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.
