The Chinese House has undergone about a couple of transitions - it was initially known as a dinner/drinks place but eventually also covered brunch. Appropriately sized portions, lovely unexpected flavors and not too pricey too. Have visited different times with different sets of friends. Lavish but very tasteful interiors, a mishmash that would otherwise look tacky elsewhere. Lovely staff who... More

Super chic atmosphere. We were there a little early in the night and the place wasn't so busy. The huge hall on the second floor offered really chic and exclusive feelings. Service was great, staff were friendly. The food was quite pricy though. Great for hanging out with friends. Perhaps a bit dark for family dinner.

My husband and I came here for dinner while visiting Phnom Penh. The second story dining room is beautiful. Spacious, well-decorated and incredibly charming. The service was great. We had a couple of starters and two mains along with dessert. The meals are not inexpensive but the quality of the food is very high and the attention and care put... More

Our friends took us to this fabulous restaurant. The space is beautiful, with high ceiling and stunning art work. We shared the 5 spice beef cheek and the lamb kofka, both delicious. A great night out.

My partner and I visited this restaurant on our last night in Phnom Penh mainly as we were tired of the food in our hostel and wanted to try something new. Looking at TripAdvisor, we found this place not too far from us. Upon seeing the reviews claiming it to be "affordable" and "reasonably priced", we thought we would go... More

A nice concept. Great food, friendly staff, good service. The perfect place to enjoy a nice dinner followed by some drinks in their nice lounge/bar.

In Phnom Penh, there are a lot of tourist restaurants and a few others that are sincerely interested in presenting a fine meal. So glad we came here for our dinner. All the food was perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. It's not a huge menu but it's sometimes far better to concentrate on a smaller menu and do it well.

Visited Chinese House after reading reviews online. Extremely impressed with the interior which is a thing of beauty. Drinks quality was very good as was the service. We ate dinner in the upstairs restaurant (which I might add is one of the most beautiful spaces I have been in). Food quality was fantastic. Fresh and tasty (pumpkin soup with the... More

Walking into Chinese House it feels as stepping into another era. This beautifully decorated restaurant has a whimsical and magical feel to it. We were immediately welcomed by the warm and smiling wait staff, asking if we wanted to have a drink downstairs before our meal. We opted for this, ad boy are we glad we did!! Sam mixed up... More
