This restaurant is run by and for street children (Friends). The food was very good and the enthusiasm of the children is wonderful to experience. Working here is a great opportunity for them; learning to cater for 'westerners' and speaking English amongst a host of other skills.
We ate otside in the garden and were also entertained by 4 frogs/toads that emerged for an early evening meal too.
A great atmosphere.

Great food, very fair prices, lovely simple colorful atmosphere and a very impressive social purpose - training disadvantaged children to work in the hospitality/restaurant world. Only wish that so called 1st world cities such as NY would follow the example of those behind Marum. Bravo!

Thank discriminator

Hidden away a little of the beaten track but still just a short tuk tuk ride from many hotels, this contemporary and clean restaurant is well worth a visit. Excellent Cambodian food and very willing staff and trainees. There is both inside and outside dining and a small gift shop.
