The menu are awesome n got many varieties. I love the fried prawns though it is quite costly, 4usd for around 6-7 pieces of prawns.

It offers Cambodian and Malaysian dishes. I was the only visitor for lunch, but it is from the few to offer Halal food. The lady recommended me a Malaysian dish, it is kinda fried rice, a piece of chicken, half fried egg and some vegetables....Food was ok. Watermelon juice was super.More

The Malaysian food was authentic! The nasi lemak is really fragant and nice. We ordered the fried rice with loklak and it's amazing. Be careful when asking for the dish to be extra spicy, because they will spam the chili padi. The roti canai is...nice as well! We went here twice during our trip and the food didn't disappoint both times! Lovely food with friendly people!More

I would be accused of exaggerating when i say that the food here is the "best in the world. However, the fare served is decent enough to silent those cravings for Malaysian food. Nasi Lemak is pretty decent, though one could do with more anchovies...in the sambal, and that the chicken offering was more than a fried wing. Fried basics (like fried rice, noodles, ladna etc) were all tasty, which had you wishing for more - in the portion served. (To order two dishes would be too much for me) Owners are friendly, just like the wait staff.More

This is a halal Malaysian restaurant with both Malaysian and Cambodian fare. I loved the food here so much. Waiter was friendly and food was served quickly. I had one of the best dinners of my life here. I thoroughly enjoyed the Cambodian chicken soup....They used free range chicken and the soup was filled with herbs like Thai basil, Vietnamese basil and lemongrass. The teh tarik was also one of the best that I've had, reminiscent of the really good ones I've had in Malaysia. The staff speaks decent Malay and this is helpful if you're Malaysian. I would thoroughly recommend this restaurant.More

A halal restaurant in Phnom Penh. Like the food (Kerabu Mangga, i.e. Mango Salad, Sweet & Sour fish & Sambal Belacan were the highlights) and the service. The owner are Malaysians and is (the lady-owner; didn't see the husband during our visits) very friendly. We...pre-ordered food and it was ready when we arrived. And yes, they have prayer room for Muslims.More

Was craving for mee rebus over the past two days so my friend's local friend recommended Wau...totally disappointed. Wonder where those great reviews came from, I was brought up in Singapore and have been to Malaysia many many times, but the food here just not...what it supposed to taste like :( Mee rebus was like plain noodle soup, that wasn't what I used to eat in Malaysia or Singapore. Nasi lemak wise, a few pieces of tiny ikan bili, over-dried fried tiny chicken wing and a sunny side up egg, mee goreng was too dried as well. The portion of mee goreng and nasi lemak were so little that my husband and my uncle had to order another plate. I don't usually leave such a low rated review on any restaurant I have been but Wau is just so disappointing.More

Came here twice during my trip due to the halal requirement. On the 8th floor of a hotel. Came as a group, and everytime my group arrived at the restaurant, hot food and cold bottled water are waiting for us ready to be consumed. Food...is delicious and the mango served at the end is a sweet touch.More
