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.

“Brilliant place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

The food, the architecture, and the ambiance all add up to a spectacular combination. Housed in the Chinese House built in 1903 -- and such a landmark that almost every tuk-tuk driver in town knows -- Tepui is a great place.

Even if you're just going to the bar and art gallery on the ground floor, take time to visit the dining room upstairs. Preserved in its original state, it is massive. And the opium bed in a cultural touch.

Try the tapas for variety and food to share. My recommendation? The fish. Enjoy.

“meat is good!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

The second time I had dinner at Tepui. The first time was not so great because red snapper was dry. Pleasant surprise, the menu has changed!! We were a group of friends and we started with tapas. Some were average__ feuilleté? but the chorizo ​​croquettes were delicious!
I think my beef was brazilian ... The meat was very tender, medium rare, and I liked the crunchy vegetables.
It is known that the south american meat is quite salted? i think.... In fact, it felt the touch, but just enough to make the difference... i loved it! The service was almost perfect! well done!

“Fantastic decor and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

This was probably the best place we ate at during our 4 day stay in the city. The food is presented perfectly and the quality is excellent. The beef tender loin was perfectly cooked and the selection of starters we ordered were all tremendous.

The art is also very cool.

“Put Tepui on your list!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Tepui was excellent on all fronts for us. The food was interesting, a diverse selection, excellent quality, executed perfectly and in elegant, appealing surrounds. Oh and the cocktails were great too! The Mediterranean / South American influences were at the forefront and we left very full and satisfied.

“Elegant food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Upon arrival on the restaurant it was greeted and advised of the small steps as it is a dark entrance as mentioned previously, then was taken to the restaurant upstairs.
The service was good and efficient, atmosphere was brilliant, very well designed interior and setting.
I had a good wine and the braised Australian cheeks steak which was delicately smothered in wine. It just fell apart and it tasted wonderful.
Had I been in PP much longer I sure would of visited again, but expect to pay the price for good food...
