Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 December 2012

Cafe Malaya in Phnom Penh offers good Malay (Halal) food to resident and visiting Malaysians who miss their Malaysian food. Or Halal food for tourists looking for such.

Their normal fare is presented buffet style with 7-dishes including a soup. Drinks are sold separately. But in the buffet does not fancy you, then order fried rice rice, noodles, flat noodles ala Carte.

Dishes in the buffet are different on different days and includes :
- Beef Curry
- Beef Rendang
- Beef Kicap (i.e. in thich soy sauce)
- Chicken Curry
- Chicken Rendang
- Spicy Ginger Chicken
- Tofu in Coconut Milk
- Tomyam
- various style stir-fried vegetable, etc.

The curries are very good and one can eat as many round as one need to.
Surprisingly, they have a group of loyal patrons (resident/visiting Malaysians and locals) who gather to have the delicious food and also to meet other just for a simple chat or even for some serious business discussions.
Truly a place where friends congregate!

Pricing is very reasonable at USD4/= for the buffet. Opened Mondays-Fridays 9am-8pm. Closed on Sundays.
