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!

It is difficult to dislike the concept of this place, run by Cambodian woman to support themselves. Service is very friendly but is was a bit slow during my visit. First floor (ground floor) has a better atmosphere than second floor (first floor), so I would have preferred to sit downstairs. My sandwich was large to keep me going for... More
