I came here upon recommendation of friends... a very cute modern Cambodian fusion restaurant. A lot of the reviews have said it is expensive - $30 for amazing food to me is not expensive! A lot of the reviews have said the service is terrible - the staff were very hospitable to someone dining alone. A lot of the reviews... More

Lunch at this restaurant was part of our group tour and, as such, we had a set menu. Most enjoyable meal with good service, especially the numbers in our group

We brought some visitors from the USA here to experience a fine dining experience. The atmosphere is lovely, we had a private room as our group was large. The service was great, the food was good quality, very flavorful, however a bit pricey, but it was a special occasion. Everyone left full and happy.

A group of 8 of us had a wonderful dinner. Setting is lovely. I think we ordered the entire menu. Sampled all of the best of Khmer cuisine. Also enjoyed some fun local cocktails. If you are looking for a special night out in Phnom Penh, this is the place to get it started.

This place seems to enjoy a high profile with long term recommendations. Not convinced. Tucked away in a corner behind walls. The main attraction is open air courtyard dining, but you need to book as it is popular. We ate upstairs in an air conditioned room. Nice enough, but not the same. The menu is imaginative and ventures well beyond... More

Food is very, very good. Service is pretty average if I'm honest. Don't come here for the wine. Overall ambience is great.

Made the mistake of ordering a starter each. Should have been 1 between 2. By the time the main came, we were both stuffed. My wife ordered Goby fish for her main and we found it both chewy and very very boney. I, however, ordered the saruman beef curry. Fantastic. Tender, flavoursome and just a nice heat temperature. We had... More

Our group ate in a wonderful Cambodian restaurant while vacationing here. The garden setting with flora and a water display was very Zen-like. The service and food were excellent. Well worth the price. I wish they were closer so we could revisit.

My visit to Malis is one of my most memorable restaurant experiences ever. The garden setting is absolutely lovely and the service is impeccable. The soft shell crab appetizer is the best soft shell crab that I have ever eaten, and the Takeo pork chops were simply mouthwatering. I highly recommend Malis, particularly for a special occasion.
