We were recommended to try this restaurant, which has a lovely setting, with an exterior courtyard style eating area around a pool, plus airconditioned internal areas if you want to avoid the inevitable bugs outside. Expensive by Indochina standards, but food was very good. Service was the only thing that stops me giving this an excellent review. We ordered a... More

This place came recommended by our hotel and it was wonderful. The food service setting was worthy of a top restaurant anywhere in the world. The menu was extremely helpful in that there is a picture of most if not all the dishes which gives a useful indication as to the portion size and expectation. We went for a selection... More

This place is worth visiting for several reasons: the ambiance (though it's much better to sit outside than inside), the food (good quality, and consistent), and the price (reasonable).

Malis is currently my favorite Cambodian place in the city. Charming decor, great food, decent portions, and fair prices. The food is really savory, no MSG, not too spicy, so you can actually taste it. If you like heat, just tell them and they'll bring you a platter of different spices/sauces to spice up your life. The tiger prawns with... More

This place will always be one of my top favorite places to eat. Probably top 3. I've been here for special occasions and I've been here for a "just because I was craving for it" kind of meal. I always get the beef curry and the fish amok. Always. It's just a must have combination when coming to a place... More

This place is great. It has a nice atmosphere, is very reasonably priced, and is absolutely delicious. We had a group of 15 last time we dined and they took very good care of us. Food is very good and there is a lot of variety and choice.

We had a good meal in the courtyard. The place was very busy but the service was excellent. Food came at different times after they had said it would come together, and what we had thought would be the starters came at the end. This said the food was subtle in taste and well presented. We had prawns, beef curry,... More

We were taken here as part of our tour package and from the outside it looks nothing but when you get in it is brilliant, the atmosphere and the setting are great, the staff could not be more helpful and friendly and the food was great, they did not rush you like other restaurants we have visited. Brilliant evening to... More
