Friends is a ‘kindness restaurant’ where ex street children are trained in hospitality and restaurant skills. Helping them break away from life on the streets has never been so tasty and our Burmese curry and stir fried chicken with cashews and mango was mouth-wateringly good. Surprise, surprise and jump up and down for joy, red berry and apple crumble with coconut ice cream was for desert.

Cambodia has suffered so much in so many ways that it’s good to leave knowing you helped such a noble a cause

Restaurant is a social enterprise, it’s for a good cause. Quality of food and service is very good. It’s a ttraining restaurant for youth at risk. Nothing however would give it away as a training restaurant if it was said so, as the food and service (including that of the trainees) are done professionally. Keep it up
