I really liked this small restaurant close to the Russian Market. Cozy atmosphere and very good noodles! They also have several options for vegetarian and vegan (like tofu brochettes). I will be back for sure!

I like this place and have been there a few times, it is cute and has a bit of charm and the food is excellent. Cold noodles and the sesame chocolate balls are delicious. They have umeshu, which is always a winner. The whole vibe is brought down by the staff though. Pull up out the front on your bike... More

This place is a little far away from the center of town, but there was a gig on around the corner, so we gave it a spin.....and we came away very happy. We both plumped for the pork spicy ramen noodle dish and were glad that there was heat, but it wasn't overpowering. It would probably have been better with... More

Staying nearby (Frangipani Arts and Living Hotel) we wandered around for about a 4 block radius when we first arrived. The area has tones of great cafes and coffee shops and we noticed this noodle bar setting up around 5pm. We came back a couple hours later and the place was quiet but that change dB soon after we got... More

This restaurant was in my neighborhood when I lived in Phnom Penh and I found myself here all the time. The food is delicious, and as a vegetarian I found an abundance of delicious choices on their menu.

I had a noodle soup with a little bit of heat. It was tasty and fresh. I've heard this place gets busy, it wasn't art 5pm. I prefer cushioned seats over wooden stools and this restaurant only had the latter. The staff were good and accommodating.

We ordered the ramen and while it was not traditional ramen it still tasted okay. I wasnt a fan of the pork belly in the ramen as it was very, very fatty and wasn't very tender.

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.
