From 1987 to 2018, Phnom Penh Noodle House gathered a robust following around its flavorful Cambodian food and “Phnom(enal)” service. The restaurant was originally opened by Sam Ung, a beloved community member and Cambodian refugee. He passed the restaurant to his daughters, and they continued its legacy. In 2018, sisters Dawn Ung, Diane Le, and Darlene Ung experienced a family tragedy and were forced to close the business. However, the Seattle community has rallied around the Ung family, and with their re-opening in 2020, Phnom Penh Noodle House proves the enormous power of community (and Cambodian noodles).
So glad they re-opened in a new location. I didn’t realized I’ve been missing out on authentic Cambodian food just like my friends back home would make! Every dish is amazing!
I love their new location! The food is still just as amazing as it was before. I was first introduced to them from one of the international district food walks and their syrupy savory chicken wings, which I have gone back for countless times. Their noodles are also really delicious and they sell jars of the chili crisp!
