Don't miss this unique food and setting in Phnom Penh

The food, the service, the atmosphere, the decor was all perfect. I was told to come here by a friend and it was well worth it! If you are near the area do yourself a favor and swing by.

In an old building fifties style renovated, a lovely place to go to have a drink and tapas before and after a really amazing dinner on the first floor with typical and contemporary asian food. I really fell in love with the Chinese House at the first look. You really have to go there.

Amazing location: an old colonial building completely renovated and furnished 50s style! Really unique!! We started with a few drinks on the ground floor and later moved upstairs to the restaurant, asian fusion cuisine. We shared a few starters and main dishes and I strongly recommend coconut soup as a starter and both crusted tofu and lamb with basil and... More

The China Open just reopened last weekend with eclectic music selection. There is now a large bar area at the lobby area with vintage looking decoration, a mix of oriental and Mediterranean delight.

The newly re-opened Chinese House is awesome. This is one of Phnom Penh’s iconic locations and now, finally, the food and service match the beauty and history of the building. Our group of 4 ordered everything from the 'tapas' menu and loved our shared meal. This is a must-see site, even if you only have time to enjoy drinks. But... More

I spent a week working recently on a consulting project in Phnom Phen, and spent the weekend exploring the city as I am a food lover... I have seen many nice places, but Te Pui carries something more, this little thing that others cannot provide.. I think it was personality. Not only food or service was excellent, but you really...

Tepui at Chinese House? When we walked in, at first I was confused: was it a restaurant or an art gallery? It turned out to be both. We arrived there without reservations and were sorely disappointed to find the place full. I’d heard so much about the place and was disappointed. So after exploring the building, staring at the photographs... More

Where do I start with Tepui? Eclectic, moody, cool, delicious, all come to mind. From the drinks, the appetizers, the main course, and the desserts; it was all wonderful.

Unpretentious, well priced and a taste sensation from starter to desert within an eclectic and welcoming dinning room.
