“Fresh fresh ASEAN dishes found here!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Being in Phanom Penh is always fun as you remind your sweet old time in Bangkok. I had a nice Cambodian cuisine lunch today with my colleagues (Thai and Cambodian cuisines are so sisterhood with a bit milder and sweeter in Cambodian's).
At Malis Restaurant, I was absolutely enjoyed the so fresh raw beef and crispy vegetable salad,the pretty oriental taste chicken vegetable hot soup, Grilled natural breed beef steak with basil sauce, very fresh and fresh fried local green veggies,and the yummy local fried rice.
Each dish is simple but charming in its basic cooking style and freshness. Not too oily and not too spicy. All be excellent paired with the fresh Coconut juice.
The atmosphere is so relax that you forget the 35 degree Celsius-outdoor!
This place is one of 'a must' when you visit Phanom Penh also.

“Charming spot”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

In a great setting with ponds and plenty of trees and flowers they served really good food - must try the prawn cakes when you get to Phnom Penh.

“Terrible food what a disappointment”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This place has a nice ambience to it but that is all it has going for it. My meal was just awful and they made the mango smoothies with green mangos... yuk. The waiter was hopeless so overall a bad night, do yourself a favour and miss Malis.
