We went here on a lunchtime and it certainly was not tranquil or peaceful! It was absolutely rammed pack with foreigners. People were sat on chairs with plates on their knees!! I don't care if it is the most amazing restaurant in the world I will not sit with a plate on my knee in this class of restaurant. We... More

Jars of clay offers a relaxing atmosphere away from the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh. The mango chicken salad is delicious. Jars of clay is a good place for foreigners to get lettuce, tomatoes and other raw veggies without worrying about the cleanliness issue. We had 8 in our group and everyone was pleased with their food. The fruit... More

Superb and reasonable, we savored every dish. Service was good- a little scattered, but hardly reason enough to write this one off. Would absolutely return and recommend.

This was by far our best meal in Phnom Penh! The staff are all very polite and food was incredible! We had the Amok and it was the best we've had in Cambodia the dessert selections are to die for - blueberry cheesecake and cinnamon buns! A must go to when in the area.

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.
