Food should never pose an issue for travellers to Siam Reap since there are so many international restaurants along the town’s main street. For those who are not that adventurous to venture into the more exotic street food, the vast options of ‘proper restaurants’ must surely be a relief. But if you are willing to stray a little further, Haven Training Restaurant is definitely worth checking out.
Just like the name says, Haven is a training restaurant in which the staff and chefs are recruited from the less privilleged youngsters – such as orphans. Haven equips them with useful life skills to prepare them for a better life in the future, as well as helping them to secure a permanent job after their training ends.
All of these benefits are provided free to the trainees and you could lend your support just by dining here. Anyway the food’s great anyway and you are eating for a good cause too. So why not?
The menu (priced in USD) has a mix of Cambodian classics, Western and Fusion specials that also includes many vegetarian options. Don’t be surprised to find a few Swiss dishes too because a Swiss association actually backs the restaurant.
