This restaurant has a lovely ambience and beautiful traditional Kymer food. It is a training restaurant with excellent attentive service, well located in Ohnom Penh and very well priced meals.

This is quite an original restaurant in which you can discover different aspect of khmer food. Very good but obviously overpriced, as it's a restaurant made for tourists. You can taste tarentulas, as well as crickets, froglets, red ant beef etc. Staff is friendly and...More

I came here with a colleague for a casual dinner and enjoyed everything we had. I ordered the fish amok which was delicious as well as the renowned tarantulas. If you can get over the fact that your eating tarantulas, they don't taste half bad....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.
