If you’ve already travelled to Phnom Penh by the time you get to Siem Reap, there’s a fair chance you’ll have sampled Romdeng or Friends restaurants. You may have tried both.

Marum is from the same family. It’s a training restaurant supporting disadvantaged young people .

Marum serves a mixed menu of vegetarian, seafood and meat tapas dishes that are drawn from the flavours of Khmer cuisine. The kitchen's open so you can poke your head in for a look.

The garden setting is pleasant - you can hang out, relax and read. Staff are enthusiastic - but they’re in training so English skills may vary.

I had a pleasant lunch at Marum on the way back from a morning at the temples.
