“Overrated but yummi!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We sat at the first floor which is probably not the best place but it was full. So even if you come only two and during a week day you should book it to have the nicer location.
Food is good buy totally overrated. But you pay for the atmosphere, the service, the originality,...

“An excellent place to sample Cambodian food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We misunderstood the menu and ended up ordering 6 different courses, whereas three would have been ample for two. However the food was so good that we left nothing. The service was excellent and the outside patio has great atmosphere and the temperature was very pleasant in the evening..

“Overrated, but good atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I came here with a large group of friends and the service was very good. We were welcomed with a small green mango smoothie and a little salad.

The food was overrated though and I have had better Khmer flavours at other places that were a lot cheaper than here.

It is a very beautiful place to sit and enjoy a meal though, but if you are more concerned with the value/quality ratio I would probably pass.

“Great food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

We had a beautiful meal at Malis on our first night in Cambodia. The food was fresh and full of flavour, and the setting is simply gorgeous. The seafood in particular was divine.
