Lovely place to visit if you just want to chill out. A larger fining area is available upstairs. There is a mix of European and Asian cuisines, all cooked really well. The milk shakes are gorgeous and the cakes to die for. In fact I wonder why I'm only giving it a 4 out of 5. Well worth a visit.

I ordered the Khmer Fish Curry not knowing what it was. I quite enjoyed it. It's curry with peanuts and sweet potatoes.

I came by for an early lunch at 11 am. I really like the fish and chip, and the Khmer coffee served here. The stairs to the seating sat upper floor are rather steep. So need to be very careful when going up and coming down.

Jars of Clay, located near Tuol Tompoung (a.k.a. Russian) Market, is a welcome oasis from the crowded streets and stuffy Russian Market (named because during the Vietnamese regime many Russians frequented there). Coffee is good, sandwiches and other fare are consistently good. If you go during rush hour when it is crowded, the service can be slow. Sometimes there are... More

I live in Phnom Penh and Jars makes good Western and Khmer food. Their Pad Thai is ridiculously good and the portions are excellent. The interior is not my favorite but that's just my taste. Many people like it and I cannot complain about the prices (which are very reasonable).

Pleased to return to Jars of Clay after an absence of 2 years. Instantly felt at home and ate well (soft chicken taco) at a good price. Plenty of choice, free wifi and a decent atmosphere.

Jars is just fab. Their cakes are delicious. The service is friendly and fast. Their peanut butter and banana milkshake is unrivalled. Love sitting upstairs and watching the world go by. Just down the road from the Russian Market, so easy to find.
