This must be a popular place for business entertainment as the place was packed with overseas visitors the evening we had dinner with our Cambodian colleagues. Food was excellent in tastes and presentation and staff were efficient and fast. The restaurant is tastefully decorated like a grand mansion with both indoor and outdoor seating options. Do try the Amok fish... More

Elegant well landscaped grounds. Good service. Quality of food was much improved from our last visit. The Saramande beef was interesting. The Fried Zucchini was tasty with a good bite , the amok fish was most delicious n well balanced. Their fried eggplant, pumpkin curry, smoked fish with bamboo shoots soup were enjoyable and interesting. Wish to compliment them on... More

The quality of the food here is very good. The restaurant is set up nicely but there is a lot of noise from the busy main road outside. Prices are literally top dollar for Phnom Penh and, although it is good value by "western" standards, equally good food can be had elsewhere for not much more than half the price... More

Good ambience and delicious Khmer cuisine. Quite a wide range on the menu. Pork and fish head curry was well done. Pricey but good courteous service

Decided to have our Christmas lunch at Malis. Whilst they had a Christmas menu they were more than happy to allow us to order from the a la carte. Although it was quite warm, we chose to sit outside in the garden under the fans as it's a gorgeous setting. The staff were happy for us to take our time... More

This was hands down our favorite restaurant in Cambodia. Ate at both locations, Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. The original in Phnom Penh was our 1st experience of Cambodian food as we ate here on our 1st night of the vacation. Sadly, we tried something not Malis the next night and regretted it!!! The restaurant has great service, nice atmosphere... More

I avoided this restaurant for a while after my previous not so favourable visit. This time I was pleasantly surprised by the service and the food. The beef curry was especially nice! Desserts still need a bit more work. But if you want a fusion type Cambodian fare then this is worth a visit! Only thing that irked me was... More

This restaurant is set in a beautiful garden in the heart of Phnom Penh. It is quiet and inviting. It offers a choice of outdoor seating and indoor, air-conditioned comfort. We chose to dine in air-conditioned room. We ordered Takeo sausages, curry chicken rice Cambodian style and Kampot crab fried rice. The food brought out subtle flavours and very well... More
