I go here whenever I am in Kep and it never fails to delight. Delicious food, great prices and the best place to watch the sunset over the ocean.

I loved the food so much I went back again. We were staying in Kampot but couldn't resist not returning before leaving Cambodia. Both times we had the fried crab and we were most impressed. We also loved their squid dish. It does get a bit stuffy, so do your best to get a table closest to the 'windows', which,... More

Kimly's was recommended to us before we set off on our travels so we had high expectations. There's lots of choice when it comes to eateries at the Crab Market but Kimly's proves to be the busiest and also most popular on the small seaside stretch. The menu is extensive and there's so many dishes that sound incredible - we... More

We stopped in Kimly for dinner . squids in green pepper sauce & shrimps in butter sauce both are great. We also ordered stingray soup but it was only okay since they were cooked with bone in

Eating pepper crab was one of the highlights for my trip to Kep . This was my second trip into Kep and the pepper crab , cooked with fresh pepper and chilli never disappoints . As a couple we ordered only one large crab dish with rice and fruit juice . The sunset view looking over the Gulf of Thailand... More

We had diner at Kimly twice during our stay in Kep. Although the ambience is lacking, the food is amazing! The crab amok is my absolute favourite, highly recommended.

They say never go back, something I usually agree with, but this is an exception. We returned just before Christmas, on a revisit to Kep and found the place still worthy of its good reputation. We again had the Kampot Pepper Crab and enjoyed it as we had previously. The prices may have increased, I don't know, but it was... More

The manager also tried to take our change and we had to ask many... More

We were really looking forward to kimly's as it was recommended by our family to visit. As soon as we arrived the service was poor and dysfunctional. On three occasions they got our order wrong (even though we pointed and they read back). Food was above average but not as good as holy crab. Save your money and go to... More

The food was fantastic no question. Great crab. The fish amok was the best I've had in 8 months of Cambodia. Sadly, the staff are rude and generally appear to hate their jobs. They appeared physically repulsed by the idea of taking our order. Secondly, I had to stand up and approach them on 3 occasions just to ask for... More
