Ranked #17 of 641 restaurants in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence 2013
Cuisines: Asian fusion

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.

Tepui may be a little pricier than the average PP restaurant but the food and setting made it worth it, in our view. Restaurant was very quiet when we visited, perhaps as we were in PP near off-season. The place should be busy. Food was on the rich side, but delicious. My amuse bouche, mushroom pasta and dessert (including homemade... More

After reading the reviews I was looking forward to eating at this restaurant but feel it is overpriced and overrated. The staff were pleasant and helpful but the food itself wasn't up to the reviews on this site.

We came here on our last night in Phnom Penh after hearing good things about it - we were not disappointed! We walked from 144 street which was about 20 minutes but got a Tuk Tuk back. The colonial building is gorgeous from the outside but equally as nice inside. The ground floor is a bar come art gallery which... More

After reading about Tepui at Chinese House in the New York Times, my husband and I decided to splurge during our trip and have dinner there. We were a little surprised to see that we were the only diners in the restaurant when we first arrived, although the restaurant was half full by the time we left. For starters, we... More

The restaurant was impressive and historical. The drinks were really special and well priced during happy hour. Dinner was very good as was the service. It is a little off the beaten path so take a tuk tuk.

This restaurant is so beautiful, with its lovely old building and its eclectic mix of art, that it is worth visiting irrespective of the food. And the food is good too. Not a terrific choice for non-meat eaters, but what we had was tasty and well cooked. the service is impeccable

This place was recommended to me and I may say this is gorgeous. It is a very cozy place and elegantly designed. Every details was meticulously planned from the receiving area/bar up to the restaurant area on the upper floor. Food was superb. I cannot fault this place. Well done Tepui!

OMB, this is by far one of the best places i've eaten in my whole entire life! And its in an old colonial Chinese house in Phnom Penh!!! Seriously. The food is all exquisite, the cocktails ridiculously good, and the decor - these people have taste. In my imaginings, this is the way all great restaurants are meant to be... More

At the first glance to the menu, it looks expensive,which it's true. But it worth it as you will have a good quality of service and tasty dishes. All in all, it's a great place to have a nice dinner with staff taking care of you. Don't expect the size of the dish to be huge but rather something tasty... More

Tepui is well worth visiting when you're in Phnom Penh, set in the wonderful Chinese House building. If you don't want dinner there, the cocktail bar downstairs is very nice. The food was very nice, being an asian-western fusion (quite interesting with the south american twist they put on it), but not the best fusion food we've ever had. Quite... More
