Description: Tepui at Chinese House offers a refined Asian cuisine and cocktails, with a South American touch. Gisela Salazar Golding, the Venezuelan head chef, creates dishes inspired by her own origins as well as years of culinary experience in Valencia (Spain), Paris, Shanghai and Phnom Penh. She now brings to Tepui an inspiring menu highlighting her love affair with South America and Asia. The Chinese House, a destination itself, was built in 1903 by Tan Bun Pa, a leading Chinese trader. Retaining its original combination of Chinese architecture and French colonial style, it is amongst the very few colonial houses in Phnom Penh that remains in its original state. The Chinese House was carefully restored in 2009 and now hosts a restaurant, bar, and gallery. Open Monday to Saturdays, 5pm onwards.

Dining at Tepui is an experience I recommend highly - the level of attention to detail, the quality of the food and the beautiful "Chinese House" were highlights of my recent stay in Cambodia. I am generally suspicious of glowing reviews but the truth is: this is fine dining indeed, with an interesting Asian-Venezuelan-Latino twist, and the prices will be... More

Great tapas, nice atmosphere, bit expensive compares to local standards but worth every penny. The tuna and tenderloin tartare were so tasty! I would definitely come back, too bad we discovered this place at the end of our stay here in PP.

gosh, we had a disappointing time at the Tepui just 2 months ago. the house is gorgeous, no worries on that. we found the food was fancy and well presented but not delicious at all. my drink was $3 for a weak cordial with no garnish. the boys ordered draft beer (no anchor available), and didn't know the brand but...

We visited this bar-restaurant-gallery early on a Friday night, before going to the theatre and to be honest I wish we had been able to stay all evening and make a night of it. The ground floor has a bar (with a good range of cocktails and spirits) and sofas with a modest art gallery around the walls (which was... More

The building is a beautiful Chinese old villa with high ceilings and great art work. The ambiance both downstairs and upstairs is spectacular, the service is sophisticated and the menu is one of the most mouth-watering I've seen in Phnom Penh.

Of the three restaurants I take friends, this one is my favourite. The food is Modern Venezuelan fusion (!) with some innovative, very surprising and sometimes adventurous twists. The service is attentive without being intrusive and the decor timeless. (One friend knew it when it was a private residence. Some elements remain, said she.) This restaurant is for friends coming...

We started with a nice white wine in the lounge bar at the ground floor and moved up to the first floor of this magnificant old house for the remainder of the dinner. We had two shared plates and one main 'paella negra for two', finished with only coffee. All together almost 3 hours. The staff were really paying attention... More

I love the Tepui restaurant in Phnom Penh which is steeped in history also. Five to ten minutes in a tuk tuk but well worth it. Stylish contemporary bar downstairs and lovely authentic older style restaurant upstairs with gorgeous art. Excellent menu and service - do try and visit - you won't be disappointed.

This is the place to come to treat yourself. The tuna tartare on toasted bread is a good starter. We also tried the duck with couscous and the Australian pepper steak with mashed potatoes and greens. All delicious. Even on a Friday night it only had four tables filled; but there were a few more people in the bar. The... More
