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.

We went there for dinner. The menu included a large choice of meal. But the taste of the meals were not excellent. OK but not fantastic! The service was a little bit slow for some of the meals. Price was in agreement with Phnom Penh prices.

We ordered the Vietnamese pancake stuffed with minced pork and vegetables, which is apparently the restaurant's signature dish. Most other diners ordered this, and it was nice. However the other dishes were mediocre. The place did not appear to be as clean as it should be.

Got in just before 7pm and within 30 minutes the place was full. 80% local and 20% foreigners. Food was fantastic. We only had 2 starters and 2 soups and couldn't finish them. The pricing was very reasonable and they had plenty of serving staff on hand to take orders. Highly recommend going there for some great food!

Cant get enough of this place and sad that we only made it there for one night for dinner. The food is very affordable and the portions amazingly satisfying. We had the beef pho noodles , yums!!! And their recommended Wrap and rolls set with fresh herbs and veges withpan fried pork was fantastic. The service staff were very very attentive and very prompt when it comes to recommending the right dishes. I wish they have this restaurant at that prices in Singapore!

It was ok but the reviews on tripadvisor had gotten my expectations in over drive. It wasnt bad but it was not mind blowing. Plus a got a pack of leaves that were supposed to be salad and some looked like they had been plucked off the nearest tree and brought straight to me without a stop in the kitchen
