    Bringing Cambodian cuisine back to life
    When you dine at Malis Restaurant, not only do you get to savor delicious Cambodian cuisine, you also consume an important story. During the 1970’s under the Khmer Rouge, many of Cambodia’s traditional recipes that had been passed on for centuries were forgotten and vanished from the kitchen.
    Malis was born in 2006 out of the desire and passion to restore Cambodian cuisine to its former glory and put Cambodia back on the map as a culinary destination. Renowned for its fresh seasonal produce, delicate flavours and generous hospitality Master Chef Luu Meng and his team, decided to revive Cambodian cuisine from the past, adapt it to the present and preserve it for the future.

    DiscoverOur Venue

    Located in the heart of Phnom Penh, near the Independence Monument, guests can choose to dine in the outdoor courtyard or in air-conditioned comfort. The tables surround a beautiful tropical garden with flowering frangipanis and a trickling water feature beside a giant statue of Jayavarman VII, abiding by the principles of Feng Shui.
    Malis Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offers private dining rooms for business lunches or special events.
