Great vibe, yummy food

We ate at Friends several times while in Phnom Penh. The variety of menu options was excellent and always delicious. Green apple lime freeze was a big favourite during these hot days.
The staff, both students and teachers, are excellent and are always happy accommodate patrons needs.
A great restaurant with a great cause, definitely worth your patronage.

Pros: friendly staff, variety, yummy

Beware unless you eat fish

1 Posted on 10 / 15 / 2010

This is a restaurant with a great cause, but if you're vegetarian and want to support the charity then my advice is to visit the shop or make a donation instead of eating at Friends. The reason is because they consider fish to be vegetarian and include fish sauce in some meal options under the vegetarian menu. Further, they don't necessarily understand the concept of vegan and eliminating certain ingredients so I wouldn't trust anything that came to my table. I'd skip this restaurant and go to one of PP's other amazing veggie finds. [edited by staff, see TOS]

Pros: good cause
Cons: so-called vegetarian items have fish

BE CAREFUL!!!

I have to say, this restaurant is worth eating at for their cause alone. But, be careful!!! They not only DO NOT fully understand what vegetarianism is. If you're vegan, it's quite possible for them to mess up. They don't speak English well here either and are pretty busy so trying to explain what ingredients you don't want can give you a headache. It's also very expensive. Aside from that, the food is delicious, especially the smoothies and the cause is so amazing. You may have read about the shop they have connected to this restaurant. It promotes recycling and also helps out to their cause for street kids. Maybe I recommend that over the restaurant.

Pros: Delicious food, Great cause, Awesome connected shop
Cons: Dangerous for vegetarians/vegans, Expensive, Not relaxing atmosphere.

Awesome little place on a bustling street, I had a hard time finding it at first but just kept asking people for "Friends" and hit the mark.

Scrumptious food and sweet and attentive staff, you can really tell the effort that goes into everything. Just make clear if you are vegan or vegetarian and they'll go out of their way to accommodate you.

Run entirely by the Friends charity, this place is a real gem. Staff are a mixture of teachers and students. A blackboard displays who your waiters and chefs are and what module they are currently doing. Food is top notch - very posh and well presented. Veganness is not marked on the menu which can make it difficult - we ended up eating some things we later found out (on our second visit) we shouldn't have.

Pros: Food, Cause, Surroundings
Cons: No vegan markings on menu
