I've used Min-Wax Quick Dry Polyurethane on interior teak. Easy to work with and it looks grreat. Does a good job of protecting the wood, too. Use the gloss level you want. I don't recommend teak oil for anything, but that's just me. It turns dark and I think it's the favorite food of mold and mildew. Varnish would be a second choice. Epoxy is overkill for the interior.

FYI -- I have used Min-Wax Rub-On Poly to touch up the varnish job on my current boat's interior wood. Easy application and it really makes the wood look sharp.
