Maybe the best restaurant in PP in my opinion. Specializes in high end Khmer food.Had the Takeo suasages and chicken w/ banana blossom salad. Great bold flavors. Had Goby fish for main course. Wines were very nice. Service was very attentive without being overbearing. Nice ambiance with a table in the garden area. Strongly recommend.

We visited this restaurant as part of an organised tour lunch stop. We were sat in a private room for 15 of us. The set food menu was tasty and well presented. The class of tne restaurant suggested this was a place sought after for fine dining. Not sure what the cost was, but probably at the higher end.

We thoroughly enjoyed Malis. We went for lunch first and decided to go there again for our last dinner as it was so good. It is fine dining and elegant surroundings with excellent service. Some of the best dishes we had were the beef skewers, the beef curry, crab fries rice. The wine was really good quality and nice prices... More

food was average, nice ambience and staff are nice. Should make the place more cooler as we were seated outside there's no cool air circulating in the area.

We had excellent food at Malis and the staff were very nice. The restaurant is particularly pretty downstairs. My daughter left an expensive silver ring in the washroom and the staff made sure we got it back - thank you!

An extremely elegant Cambodian Restaurant. The food is very authentic and the service is good. If you have dollars to spare, this is one restaurant that you should not miss out.

The Service is great, the Atmosphere beautiful and the ants tasty. Just the Lobster and fried rice wasn't as good as possible because we had better ones in other places. The prices are high for highend meals, but appropriate for the others, especially the Desserts.

Definitely wanted to experience Cambodian food during our visit. This place provided that. We had the taster menu which was good. The outside eating area was nicely done, but we were concerned about mosquitos so sat inside. The room decor felt a little tired; it could have done with a bit of a refurb.

I feel that as with a lot of "High End" restaurants serving provincial or regional food often leads the kitchen to forget the "KISS" theory and push the boundaries beyond the recognition of the simple fresh, seasonal, down-to-earth, unsophisticated, uncomplicated, wholesome, genuine and real pure flavoured dishes that allow the individual elements to speak for the dish and why it...
