If you’re looking for a Malaysian halal restaurant in central Phnom Penh, you gotta check out Wau! This tiny Malaysian restaurant is tucked away on a quiet street just off Norodom Boulevard, but trust us, it’s worth the search. The staff is super friendly, and the food is absolutely delicious.
Although you can sit inside, we recommend snagging an outdoor table for a cozier vibe, especially in the evening. The crew at Wau are all from Malaysia, and the menu has all the classic dishes you’d expect from a casual Malaysian joint. Bonus: They even offer a buffet option that’s a great value for your money. Main courses are priced around $5, so you can enjoy an amazing meal without breaking the bank.
Keep in mind that Wau doesn’t serve alcohol, but they do have some awesome Malaysian tea and Milo, which is a chocolate-malt drink that is very popular in Malaysia. If you’re feeling brave, you should try the durian cream candy. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you’re a fan of durian, you’ll love it!
Whether you’re looking for a casual lunch, dinner, or even breakfast, Wau has got you covered. We recommend heading over in the early morning, around 7-8 am, for a quiet start to your day. Grab yourself some super tasty roti canai (flatbread) with curry and you won’t be disappointed.
