A sophisticated international boutique restaurant featuring an on-site gourmet café, bakery and delicatessen with a wide range of specially imported and house-made delights, Khéma offers a unique concept on Cambodia’s dining scene and can now be enjoyed at two landmark locations in the heart of Phnom Penh.

Khéma lets you set your scene according to your mood. Start your day with the best croissants and pastries in town, indulge in one of our gorgeous cakes and macarons, or just enjoy a relaxing hard-earned drink after work. Opt for a smart business lunch within a stone’s throw of Phnom Penh’s commercial districts or an intimate three-course dinner in a refined setting. Linger over our incredible value and delicious High Tea, or grab a tasty sandwich prepared in freshly baked bread. The choice is all yours.

In addition to that, we have a glorious selection of cheeses, charcuterie, cakes, pastries, breads, fine foods and other delicacies ready to take away. Khéma also boasts an extensive wine cellar with a large selection of French wines from across the regions.

Khéma Pasteur and Khéma La Poste

Khéma Pasteur is located on the ground floor of Arunreas Hotel in the heart of Phnom Penh. Just a short distance from major touristic attractions such as the Royal Palace, Independence Monument and National Museum it is a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner before or after exploring the sights. Its easy-to-reach location also makes it the perfect meeting spot for catching up with friends over generous plates of cheese and wine.

Khéma La Poste opened its doors in 2017 in the Postal District of Phnom Penh, beside the very foundation of the city, Wat Phnom. It is part of a resurgent area, finding new energy in the midst of beautiful colonial-era buildings that are slowly undergoing renovation and revival. Khéma La Poste’s building dates back to the 1890s, and the days when Les Messageries Fluviales de Cochinchine plied the waterways carrying passengers and freight between Cambodia and Vietnam connecting Phnom Penh with the world. Today, it is a hub for the city’s smart diners, connecting with the cuisines of the world.
