Malis is a landmark restaurant that has long enjoyed a reputation for pushing the boundaries of fusion food with traditional, original and new age Cambodian cuisine. With capacious seating and four VIP rooms set in a courtyard around a fountain, it is undeniably the capital's premier gourmet dining experience. Its busy kitchen is home to Luu Meng, Cambodia's only masterchef, whose artfully prepared dishes have graced tables around the world.

Exceeded expectations

Food was great. No frills just simple and well prepared. Tried a scallop dish not had before and it was lovely. The staff were attentive without being in your face. Would recommend you give it a try.

Considered probably the best restaurant in town--Malis lived up to that reputation. It is a beautiful space with great service, and really good food. We had fish, chicken and seafood dishes--all were incredibly good. If you are looking for an elegant night out, this is definitely the place.

Three of us came here for dinner and had a lovely meal! I ordered a strip loin (Australia) and it was cooked as I asked - medium rare. It was by far the best steak I had in south east Asia, marinated in Cambodian Kroung spices. My friends ordered shrimps and a beef curry and were both happy with it.... More

A sublime restaurant. Loved the food which was beautifully presented. Lovely service too. The menu is my biggest problem, it took me ages the choose what to eat. I definitely recommend this restaurant as a must visit while in PP.

The food was so similar to Thai food. But the tastes of spicy are much less, which is a big preferences for my japanese boss and contact. The beef was cooked with perfection. The Angmok was same with our Thai Hormok, the soup, salad, deserts. But never think that these foods without chili would be good, but Malis proved me... More

Perhaps with all the great reviews, I was concerned if I should leave an average comments in my view...... The restaurant is housed in a very nicely set up area and as we have no reservations, we were put in an air con room without much of the ambience as the outdoor dining area, not that we mind due to...

I considered that the prices are very high considering the quality of the service and the food. We were expecting a little bit of more quality when we were paying such prices.

And the food was excellent too. Our river cruise was docked here for the night so we went to this very highly recommended restaurant and we were not disappointed. We shared several dishes and everything we had was terrific. The outside patio was beautiful, but we ate indoors because of the heat. I highly recommend this restaurant if your travels... More
