Tips for you

  • The food is delicious and there is lots of choice for vegetarians.
  • Prices are not very high, especially if compared with the taste of the meals
  • If you are dreaming of a late evening dinner and long talks under Cambodian moon this is definitely not the place!
    What to bring
  • The store next door where you can purchase unique products with a cause.
    Things nearby
  • You make small allowances for the staff that are training (students), but they are very attentive and if they quite don't understand the English they get their teacher.

A New Zealand couple in our sixties, my husband and I had a delightful evening at Marum. The setting is very pleasant, the young students keen and eager to please while being carefully but unobtrusively supervised by the teaching staff. The food was beautifully presented and full of flavour. We found the recommendation of 3 tapas between the two of us just perfect, allowing room for dessert. We were particularly pleased to see New Zealand wine available. Thoroughly recommended. Visited September 2015

Visited this training restaurant after hunting around for some local cuisine and we were really pleased. The beef with fire ants was lovely! Rest of the food was certainly memorable too. Good recommendations from their staff and very friendly folks. Lovely decor inside too.

Wonderful restaurant, which still offers an important social service recruting young people from the streets

We visited after seeing a chance mention in a review for a different Siem Reap restaurant, and we're really glad we did. The food was really excellent. We had a fresh water fish soup with wontons and a beef dish. We really enjoyed both, and the creme brulee was wonderful. It was nice to talk to the students and teachers, and they made us feel really welcome. Visited September 2015
