Tried this restaurant for the first time this evening with friends. We had the pancake and sour soup, both were pretty nice. The soup had some whole small fish in it which at first I thought would be hard to eat because of small bones, but it turned out to be very tender and rather delicious. The vegetables at this...

This restaurant combines Vietnamese and Khmer cuisine in a way too long to read menu list. However some Phô and other Hue specialties are with the experience. The garden is nice and the service staff ok (16, March 2017)

We ate here twice as we liked the extensive menu, the friendly staff and the delicious food. Both times we ate outside in the beautiful garden area which had a peaceful atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Decided to try this place as kept walking past on the way to bars from our hotel. It was always busy, but after sitting down and looking at the menu, which is huge, thought got I might have made a mistake. Ordered a stir fry chicken, it came out pretty quickly and it consisted of a mess of god knows... More

I've always been going to Magnolia for its delicious Vietnamese food at very reasonable prices. The restaurant has a wide selection of food items to choose from, while portion sizes are good for sharing. The dining areas - both indoor and outdoor - are spacious and comfortable. An area for improvement is the service level as it seems to me... More

While on my trip to Phnom Penh, my family ate here multiple times. My brother had been before and said that this was one of his favorites. All the times I ate here I ordered the seafood noodles which were delicious. Some of my family members tried the Amok and the Bánh Mì, and they thought they were all very... More

Have eaten here on several occasions - food & service are good to very good. They serve a lot of fresh 'salad' or leaves with a number of the dishes - in Vietnamese style - great when you want a break from meat and salads with meat in them. Nice atmosphere in the evening and good location on a street... More

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.
