Nice place with good street atmosphere, but the noodle soup was plain and disappointing. Had the dish of the day which was a won ton noodle soup. Nice presentation, right amount of veggies, but was no taste. Even Chili and Soy sauce didn't pep it up

日本人がオーナーさんの一人というこの店。レトロなキャラに睨まれてラーメンを啜る。全てに兎に角、5つ星。たいぎゃうまかけん、試してハイよ。 Incredibly good Ramen. Far better than some of those served in the so-called Japanese restaurants in town.

I've visited this nice and tiny place twice and me and my girlfriend fell in love with their dessert. The chocolate balls are really one of the best desserts we've ever ever ever had!! The noodles with tofu are very good, especially the home-made sauce. As it was happy hour, we ordered the 1+1 mango sake and that tasted great,... More

There are plenty of restaurants that claim to be Japanese and I get a bit doubtful as often, they are pseudo Japanese at best. Sesame Noodle Bar surprises because it is run by a true blue Japanese Chef. I enjoyed the Miso Ramen while others in my party had the House Noodles which is a delicious refreshing cold noodles with... More

Great fresh noodle salad and dumplings!! Really nice to eat something a little different to the usual fried noodles and rice. Defiantly worth a visit after the Russian market to rest!

Ice-cold water, free WiFi, and fans galore, the attentive service of Sesame Noodle is one of the most consistent in Phnom Penh. The delicious house noodles, ramen, and sesame balls for desert are all well-priced and very generously portioned. The opulence of these dishes means that I often split my meal in half and have leftovers for lunch the next... More

Nestled on a quiet street a few blocks from the Russian Market, Sesame Noodle Bar offers a small menu that focuses on quality over quantity. We draw from Japanese, Chinese cuisines with a splash of Americana (and don’t forget the tahini). Our house signature dish was made specifically for the Cambodian climate– ice-cold noodles, fresh vegetables, caramelized pork and a refreshing Sesame dressing.Now open for dinner and lunch, come by and see us.
