Description: Chinese House is among Phnom Penh's most unique Pan-Asian restaurant, cocktails bar, night-life destination and event space. Set among the last remaining authentic Chinese House of the Charming City (Phnom Penh), and home to three equally different event spaces under one roof. Chinese House incorporates a decadent cocktail lounge, a pleasant outdoor terrace and a restaurant which elegantly marries ingredients from the East and techniques from the West, throughout combining unrivaled contemporary Pan-Asian cuisine with an enticing array of cocktails and wines to choose from. Welcome to Chinese House, where the past meets the present, and the East meets the West in expertise, elegance, taste and charm, representing a unique style of a special epoch which knew how to celebrate beauty, value, stillness, tradition and style!

We went for early evening drinks only. No-one else there at 630pm. Perhaps it is a late night venue ? Friendly staff member told us the story of the building. Drinks were OK, not special. Not a fan of the chips with some sort of dip poured over as it made them soggy and unappetising.

Hi Una,

Thanks for your time. We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoyed fully Chinese House experience. Our place is not especially an early or late night venue we are sometime full at 7pm and sometime it's at 9pm or 11pm or 1am... Wrong timing and it happens. Our Chef change homemade free bar snacks every day. Hope to see you again! Best.

Lovely atmosphere in a beautiful old building. A remarkable place, the staff was attentive from the first minute we came till we left. The Chinese House is a great place to have a drink with friends or a romantic dinner.

We (a group of four) spent a great evening at this exceptionally decorated restaurant at the end of January. The bar downstairs serves a wide range of tasty cocktails in a nice "Buddha Bar" atmosphere. The restaurant upstairs offers one of the best fine dining experiences in the city. They have a good selection of quality wines and the food, which represents a kind fusion kitchen, is absolutely fantastic. Service was very polite and later we had a warm chat with the waiter. Highly recommended.

This is a highly recommended restaurant with one of the friendliest staff in town. The food is excellent and ambience superb. They even have private room for private function.

The starter beead set is delicious and the bread is warmed up before serving. Good selection of wine.

All around 5star place to eat.
