oase: heel aangename groene dinertuin in het hectische Phnom Penh - Edit

Redelijk wat vegetarische opties in een chique aandoend restaurant waar het relaxed en goed eten is. Mooie tuin. Pluspunt is ook dat het een horecaopleiding biedt aan voormalige straatkinderen. Vanwege deze funktie is de bediening door de leerkrachten ietwat formeel

Pros: Uitstekende kwaliteit., prima locatie, sociale funktie

Cons: ietsje duurder dan opties elders; de crispy riceno

Super Tasty Fresh and Super Service - Edit

Lunch at Romdeng, had the crispy rice noodle salad with lotus seeds and mushroom coriander spring rolls. Really clean fresh light flavours...super yummy :) super staff in a great garden setting.

Romdeng has a great feel and is stand out in Phnom Penh.

Pros: great venue, great project, great food

Cons: slightly more expensive $6.5 for main (but worth i

Good food but shocking menu for vegans - Edit

The food was rather nice even if the menu is not very descriptive. The black beans and dumpling dish is actually a soupy curry and the dumplings are more a vegetable paste smushed into balls.

If you are a vegan against animal cruelty here is not really a place where you will feel most at ease. Starter are composed of tarentulas, ants, crickets, served on beef tartare. Having the tarentulas exposed in a fish bowl alive until you order them.

Overall good food with a slight fancy touch to the place, but pretty pricy.

feel full, feel good :-) - Edit

This restaurant is part of the Friends International Social Enterprise and youth training / child protection network. It really feels like an oasis. The menu is interesting. The butterscotch and chocolate milk shake (dairy milk) was incredible... I ate a tasty sweet potato curry. The staff were friendly. They are getting a lot out of the training.

Yummy, Must-Try - Edit

Great place with a great mission. Several veggie options (most of which are vegan). The Vegetarian Amok and the Khmer Curry with Dumplings are both awesome.

Pros: Good mission, Excellent quality food, Good location and atmosphere

Cons: Can't think of any

Simply lovely - Edit

A great place to eat with non-vegetarian friends. The veggie options are numerous and really scrummy. They're not the usual Khmer fare with meat substitutes but stand on their own. I ate Jeow Mak, a grilled aubergine and chilli dip with crusty baguette, Tak Kroeng, mushroom pate with cumin, then a mouth-watering pumpkin amok... and I'm going back tomorrow. Plus you eat for a very good cause and the staff are delightful.

Pros: excellent food, really, great staff, you can get the recipes

not as good as sandan :( - Edit

This place does tapas. There were several options for veg and vegan. We tried the ricotta balls - pretty good. A salad - which I think was the best salad I have ever had. The hummus on wonton chips - ok. Our big disappointment was the eggplant spread - which ended up having mayo in it - not on the menu :( we couldn't eat it AND even though we explained that mayo should be a listed ingredient, they didn't take the item off our bill. We weren't happy :(

Pros: creative non-Asian food , fun atmosphere - art, music, colour, outdoor seating

Cons: menu items with non-veg items not listed , items are pre-made so no changes can be made

Lorenzo FV 29 May 2015 - I do not recognise the dishes you mention. Are you sure you ate there? It's entirely Khmer food, excellent Khmer food at that. No ricotta or mayonnaise in sight.

Good food and a great cause - Edit

At about $5 per menu item, this is more expensive than many other veg options in the city. However, the food is great, the portion sizes are large, and it feels nice helping former street kids. If you like lemongrass, you should love the "fresh garden vegetable sauteed with lemongrass and spicy basil" on the vegetarian section of the menu.

Pros: excellent food, trains former street kids, nice vibe

Cons: more expensive than other options
