Description: Malis is a landmark restaurant that has long enjoyed a reputation for pushing the boundaries of fusion food with traditional, original and new age Cambodian cuisine. With capacious seating and four VIP rooms set in a courtyard around a fountain, it is undeniably the capital's premier gourmet dining experience. Its busy kitchen is home to Luu Meng, Cambodia's only masterchef, whose artfully prepared dishes have graced tables around the world.

This restaurant has a wow factor when you walk in. The food was okay, much more average than expected given a glamourous setting. You could be in Vegas. Service was okay. Drinks were good. Expensive for the quality but not for the space.

I have been there several times for years. The latest time was on March 29th 2018. I used to go there a lot for business purposes as it is such a nice setting with some little fountain and some Buddha staute. The location is very easy to find, very close to the independence monument, on Norodom Bvd.
The food is rather good but it is very expensive compared to similar places in Phnom Penh which opened recently.
The staff is rather not very welcoming : maybe too many customers....

If you have the budget, I would still recommend it but it is not any more my number one choice for doscovery of Khmer cuisine.

This place was so luxurious! The waitstaff came to the table to present each dish, and then mixed everything together at table side. A highlight of the meal was the crispy noodle salad, which was effortlessly mixed together at the table. They do offer a wine list, but I found it to be quite limited given the elegance of the restaurant. Make a reservation to make sure you can eat there. Eating outside amongst the vegetation is lovely.

Very nice restaurant enabling one to try Cambodian food in an upmarket restaurant. It was also nice to get out of the heat and eat in an air conditioned restaurant.
