Description: On the corner of Pasteur and Street 242 Magnolia’s publicity leaflets say it aims to serve the best Vietnamese cuisine in town – and on our visit, the claim certainly seemed to be justified. The restaurant is set in a lovely old villa where you can sit either inside or in a leafy courtyard, and all the food is deliciously fresh and flavoursome. Highlights included the crispy Vietnamese pancakes, cooked to order outdoors, roll-your-own fresh spring rolls and cress soup with fishballs. It’s open for breakfast (great Pho) lunch and dinner, and the cocktails are good too. We visited several times during a recent stay in Phnom Penh, and weren’t disappointed once.

My second time to enjoy the great food. And I was not disappointed!
The Vietnamese pancakes are great. A meal in itself, but I/we didn't stop there; dried fish salad and grilled beef also.
The staff works hard and are helpful, but a bit overwhelmed when the place is busy.
We sat outside, very enjoyable and comfortable seating.
A great value for the money; four of ate to our heart's desire, with drinks and the bill was less than $40 USD!
I recommend it for a taste of real Vietnamese food, you won't be disappointed.

I only come here for the Vietnamese pancakes. The tofu one is delicious. The service is always pretty good here, although can be a bit slower when it's very busy. The drinks are also nice. Only shame is that they don't offer a delivery service yet, which many places in Phnom Penh do.

Staff is attentice and the food is good, I like the pancackes and prefer to sit outdoors since you will hear the street on the balcony.

Very good food and set in a beautiful garden on st 51. Staff can be pushy and they like to close promptly.

Can be very busy! Popular.

Heard some good things about Magnolia so was excited about trying it out. I saw not 1 but 3 table clothes were dirty with big stains on them; they changed only the one that we finally sat down on. The spring roll was so-so, the fried rice with salty fish was alright. Overall really was not impressed with food quality which could even compensate the yucky feeling from the dirty table clothes. Would not go back again.
