Beautiful food, good servings, quick service. Not the cheapest in the city but prices comparable to lesser cafes at home. The food was fresh and really enjoyable. Would highly recommend it.

A taste of Cambodian local dishes. If you care about hygienic food, this is definitely the right place for you to dine in. Great local dishes... i love the "fish paste" visited: December 2005

A familiar taste of western with the chicken snitty and mashed potato if you're feeling a little bit homesick. Lots of yummy goodies on the creative menu. Had the best chocolate milkshake of my life there. Would be back for that alone!

I like the location near Tuol Tompoung market. I disliked the bitter, small coffees served here; the prices that were rather high for such tiny drinks; the sliding door as the entryway (people invariably forget to close it behind them, allowing smoke from the chronic chimneys to seep into the restaurant); the unsmiling staff; the fact that for some very...

I have been coming to Phnom Penh for 7 years and this place is still the place to be. Large meals , cold air-con, friendly staff, tasty food and good value.

If you plan to come here with your other 1/2 of the orange this is ideal. If you're from the United States then this would feel like home. Fish and chips is good. The pasta is not my favorite. Be sure to try everything, however, because Jars of Clay will always be in foremost part of your mind. The home-like... More

This is one of the tastiest meals I've had in Phnom Penh. Also has a great atmosphere. Highly recommended! Only problem is finding it! It took me a few attempts! Well worth seeking out.

There is growing competition now with the flourishing of great places like JOMA, etc., but Jars of Clay is the Phnom Penh original. Major hangout for the church set and faith-based (not only) NGO workers. My family ate breakfast there nearly every Saturday for the better part of 8 years we lived in Phnom Penh. The food is fresh, tasty... More

Awesome restaurant with an awesome cause. The menu was extensive and the food delicious. The restaurant was clean and service was excellent. We were pressed for time so we were able to call in our orders ahead of time and the food was ready when we arrived!
