According to my guide book, the Malis restaurant is the leading Khmer restaurant in Cambodia's capital. It was certainly very busy as we were unable to get a table on the first night we tried even with my wife hopping along in her crutches. It is a very stylish restaurant and the staff are dressed in very attractive uniforms. As... More

Set off the bustling streets of Phnom Penh in a quiet peaceful setting, 5 star service equal parts attentive, knowledgable and friendly. Exquisite food with a mix of traditional country Cambodian food and city style street food. Excellent drinks list and delightful desserts. A must go to anyone travelling in Phnom Penh.

The main dining area is beautifully romantic at night, the lanterns and fairy lights in the trees, the murmurring of the fountain in the pond all combining to give it a magical atmosphere. The service was very professional and courteous and the prices, although expensive for Phnom Penh, were reasonable by Western standards. The food was pleasant, but not out... More

I've search the net where can I find good in Cambodia for my three days visit and I found Malis which stands on Top 2 on Tripadvisor. I've read comments and my foot just wanted to go there. I had a glass of white wine to start with my appetizer scallop with green peppercorn. It was ok, and then I... More

Very tasty, authentic Khmer food. Yet pricy. We went there for a business meeting, and we were brought up to a room with good atmosphere and decoration. Clean, insects-free apart from mosquitos. Food was served plate by plate according to set menu. Great experience.

Very popular restaurant in Phnom Penh, so you should reserve ahead! The staff was actually so helpful in getting me a table as I was on my own. I had the tasting menu for $30 and it was delicious! The squid with mushrooms, the fried noodles, crab soup were wonderful, but the mousse at the end was probably one of... More

I was in a party of four who visited this wonderful restaurant. Actually we booked last minute after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Lovely place to spend the evening, service was really good, I unfortunately managed to spill my glass of wine, staff were straight on it and very helpful even though it was completely my fault. The starters... More

We were looking for a 'real' Khmer breakfast and a local person directed us here. Great place to eat, fantastic breakfast in a nice patio. The girl working was very pleasant, though it was shocking that at 7am, they had ONE person working the register and the service.
