Sesame Noodle Bar is great place to enjoy the best Khmer noodle

Must ty dishes:

The sesame house noodle ($3.75) and the sesame fatty noodle ($4.50).

The house noodle can be made vegetarian or vegan as well, using tofu and vegetable noodles in place of egg noodles. The dishes feature chewy cold noodles with crisp cucumbers, lettuce and tomatoes, a hard-boiled egg and caramelized pork (for the house noodle) or pork belly (for the fatty noodle) with a cold sesame sauce. It’s simple and delicious.

Tips for you

  • The Sesame Noodle bar is a great little modern spot offering fusion cuisine with some very original dishes.
  • They do have a bar as well, perhaps it's much better in the evening.
    What to know
  • It's a good place to have lunch and not far from the Russian Market.
    Things nearby
  • It's a bit small and cramped so not easy to bring more than 4 or 5 people, but great place for a dinner with a small group of friends or a couple.
  • If you want more sauce, ask for it.
  • It's a small place but worth a try if you feel like you want to taste something different.

Just try the pork buns....then try them again.And again. We ordered pretty much everything as it is in small portions to share and it was all excellent and very reasonably priced. Also has great beer

Sesame Noodle is one of my must haves every time I am in Phnom Penh. It is a nice size portion yet not heavy on a hot day. At $4 this is a great value. You can really splurge and pay $5 for noodles and choice of gyoza, pork belly bun, or a shake. They have started serving Craft beer, which is also a nice addition.

I loved the food here and I think it's easy to when you love noodles. My boyfriend and I came in after eating another meal somewhere else, but we managed to over stuff ourselves here! We shared the sesame noodles with eggs and pork, gyoza, and the pork buns. The pork buns are delicious, but small and expensive so take that as you will. They had the right balance of savory from the pork, sweet from the housin sauce, and the pickle gave it the right kick. I really enjoyed the gyoza because the skin was nice and thin and they don't over fry the dumpling so it's crisp, but not hard. The pork inside is also very flavorful. Now the cold sesame noodles are perfect for a hot day. The noodles are chewy and not over cooked and the peanut sauce is divine. Make sure you mix your food very well because the pork is very salty and you need the noodles to balance it out! Overall a great experience and the waitstaff were so nice chatting up customers. Their ramen sounded excellent but we didn't have enough space to try it. I would love to come back and try more of their food! You must go if you're near the Russian market!

Good atmosphere with tasty foods, catering to western standards. The healthiest food (see: leafy greens) I found in phom penh.
