The organization has many projects such as: restaurants, repair shop, T-shirt printing, sewing, barber shop... to employ local marginalized people. This restaurant is the one in Sihanoukville. There are teachers and students who serve to customers. We had club, fish fillet, mango salad, scallops and brownies with ice cream on... More

This restaurant helps young locals by training them on the hostelry industry. They work with vulnerable children, youth, their families and their communities. Actually, you can see that the t-shirts says "Teacher" or "Student" :) The service is really good. Everyone is attentive and sweet. The restaurant is mostly a nice outdoor courtyard. They have a menu full of options.... More

Sandan is a place helping young Cambodians to find a way in their lives. It was one of the arguments in selecting this place twice for our dinner. Ignoring this argument I can say that the food is acceptable, but far from the similar place in Phnom Penh, named Friends. Looking to other places in town, overpriced. (Mainly) for humanitarian...

I've tried amok a few times since i arrived to Cambodia, but sandan is definitely the winner here :) I told the waiter that i'm vegan and explained what that means... He went to the kitchen and came back two minutes later with a very thorough report about the dish i wanted to order. Turns out the only dish they... More

Sandan, I believe is part of the training (staff) restaurant scheme in Cambodia. The setting in the bamboo courtyard is lovely and the food and attentive service is excellent too. Cleanliness and toilet facilities also A1.

We ate here a few days ago and were blown away with the quality of the food and service. For trainee staff at essentially a hospitality teaching restaurant, the service was the best we've experienced in Cambodia, attentive without being over bearing, and friendly without seeming to be forced. The food was amazing, in particular the potato quenelle (aka gnocchi)... More

This place offers tasty delicious dishes with lots of fresh veg and subtle flavours. Staff all speak English and service is attentive and polite. We both thought it was the best meal we've had in Sihanoukville to date. It's set in a lovely garden and has a large play area for young children too!

I love the fact they try and help young locals by training them within this industry. The waiters wear student or teacher shirts, some are teaching and some still learning. Very great customer service. Food is always good never disappointed, however unfortunately I have to say the food or the menu maybe doesn't have the wow factor. But a nice... More
