Passion, history and creativity combine in the Malis kitchen to bring you authentic Cambodian cuisine.
Our Master Chef Luu Meng
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 2004 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.
As well as exquisite Cambodian Cuisine, Malis Restaurant offers a sophisticated and elegant setting.
Overlooking the Siem Reap River, diners are treated to a delightful ambiance with a stunning garden, water pond and area for apsara dance performances. The beautiful interiors are inspired by the temples of Angkor boasting high ceilings, grey stone and a sense of space. Cambodian art and handicrafts feature throughout, embracing the local culture.
The new restaurant will feature a dining area, bar and lounge downstairs with private dining rooms and a cooking school upstairs.
