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.

WOW what a great place to to be!

We heard from friends, that Chinese House is a place to visit. So my wife and I went yesterday without a reservation. And yes we had no table at the dining room. So we where very happy that we could sit at the bar. Super friendly and funny staff. Greater knowledge about cocktails and the flair of... read more

The setting of the place makes you feel at home (I mean the comfort). Its very relaxing with big sofas and cushions. We tried many cocktails and dishes and everything had something different to offer. Delicious food and cocktails. it is a must go. our bill for two people was around 40$ which include 4 cocktails and I think 2-3... More

My sister and I chose to dine here on our last night after a wonderful holiday in Cambodia. It was advertised by our hotel, The Pavilion. When we arrived we decided not to have a drink in the downstairs bar but go straight upstairs to the restaurant. The bar was full of cigarette smoke. We headed upstairs. There was no... More

When my wife and I lived in PP, this was a fave venue. Great bar downstairs serving good cocktails and a relaxing vibe. A few years ago, the upstairs bar, which was fantastic, was taken out and replaced with a restaurant. The venue was a wonderful dining experience. Great food, wonderful ambiance and a real gem for those that lived... More

Really exciting food, a fusion of Cambodian and South American, starting with banana cannelloni stuffed with avocado, through to a mouth tingling chilli lime sorbet. In London or New York this would cost four times the price. Grab a bargain.

I dinned at Tepui earlier this week and must say overall was nice place to dine. The setting was very nice and service excellent. The food started with what seemingly was going to be a fine dining experience with the Scallop and the Ceviche oustanding. Unfortunately the Ravioli and Steak that was eaten as mains did not meet the extremely... More

Hands down the best resturant I have ever been to for quality, amazing textures and combinations of flavours, presentation. Every dish I've eaten has the wow factor.

After months of skipping this place when reading the trip advisor reviews, we finally decided to try it. I'm now kicking myself for not going sooner. This place is definitely a must-try for all Phnom Penh visitors. The location along riverside is a bit far out from the main sidewalk area. With all of the traffic, it's definitely not the... More

Expensive by local standards but great atmosphere and a nice but limited range of s American style foods. Great cervice, fish and meat dishes. Good cocktail list and a great bar downstairs with restaurant upstairs. Old Chinese house in the port area. Only for expats and tourists though.
