Had a nice dinner at the Malis restaurant in Phnom Penh. One of the highlights of this dining experience was the picturesque restaurant setting. It's a stunning restaurant with tables both inside and outside. We opted of the air conditioned room inside with a lovely view of the garden and tables outside; really the best of both worlds. The highlight... More

We read about this restaurant in the Singapore Sunday Times and decided to try it on our first night and we were so impressed we made the dinner reservation for the next day mid way of our first dinner here in Malis! Do call before you go otherwise it may be fully booked. We almost couldn't get a seat on... More

This place lives up to its reputation. It is slightly out of the way in Phnom Penh, but easy to get to on a tuk tuk (only 5 minutes from the riverfront). We booked (good idea - as it was busy), and sat outside. Very smooth / slick service (extremely attentive), and the food we had was lovely. Wines a... More

The food was as good as the last time we visited but the service was a little off the mark for Malis. The food is more substantial than it looks on the plate and is prepared to a high level.

One of the best meals we had in Phnom Penh. Gorgeous setting, friendly, knowledgeable staff (not a whiff of pretentiousness) and exquisite Cambodian cuisine. Fine dining at it's finest. Highly, highly recommend.

Malis was one of the restaurants I kept reading about during my tour. Finally I decided to book for dinner and thank goodness I did. Food, service and atmosphere made up for an unforgettable experience and definitely one of my best dinners in Phnom Penh. Amazing Fish Amok !!!

The cakes were rubbery... More

We arrived at Malis early for our reservation, but they were accommodating and promptly seated us (definitely make reservations!). We were seated outside and after dark. The waitstaff brought us insect repellent and then hand sanitizer to use after we put the repellent on. We also were given flashlights to read the menu. All of these were lovely touches. The... More
