Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you are in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, eat at this restaurant. It is run by students (Orpahns) and teachers. They learn to become waiters and chefs. I had Amuk (National food of Cambodia). It was very good. Also try the Cashew Banana Fritters with Coconut Chili...Ice Cream.More

Nice and quiet atmosphere, well presented and tasty dinner, quick and polite service, correctly priced. We also bought some handcrafts made by the families to help their students. Recommended to see how much effort these young people put for a better Cambodian future.

A very clean and well-organized place, Sandan offered us a very tasty vegetarian lunch, with quite a few options to choose from. But more than the lunch itself, it was the trainee staff's eagerness to please that made our day. Sandan is doing a wonderful...job on this count. Some of the brochures on child care were also so well drafted. Overall, it's a very well marketed initiative that appeals to your sensibilities.More

We were pleased to see this restaurant survived the pandemic. The food and the service were still superb as we remembered. We ate here 2 nights out of our 6 night stay. Sihanoukville has little to offer the tourist now unless you want to go...to the soulless casinos. Ask for a table on the balcony. You may need to book because there is only a few up there.More

Sandan was recommended to us by the owner of the guest house we used in Sihanoukville. After seeing the high prices and poor quality generally on offer in town we were so glad we came. The restaurant was fairly quiet on a rainy Sunday evening...but the welcome from the staff was warm and friendly. Youths in training are supervised by a teacher who watches their every move and points out any small flaws. Clearly the aim is to produce staff who can go on to work at the highest level of international hospitality as the service was excellent and all delivered with a smile. The food was great- local and western dishes are offered and the restaurant has a nice ambience, low level music, open plan with a garden and with local art work displayed. Prices were very reasonable too. In a town that seems to have lost its way and sold its soul to developers, Sandan is a rare glimpse of quality and is well worth supporting.More
