This restaurant is one of many near the crab market, right on the shore line and with great views out to sea. It is definitely tourist orientated but offers comfort and good toilet facilities. The menu is vast but quite easy to navigate. The area is famous for crab and peppers that are grown locally, so we chose the fried... More

Did a day trip out to Kep and the tuk tuk driver recommended this place for lunch. Unfortunately my husband had a stomach bug and he had to settle for rice while I ordered crab with lemongrass. The crab was Devine - so yummy! I wish my husband could have tasted the crab however he was unable too. I would... More

Loved it! A must especially for seafood lovers but there are other things on the menu too. Get a table looking out to the water. My prawns were large and so tasty for a fantastic price. Finger bowls would have been nice but otherwise a very memorable meal

We wanted to try a new place so picked Kimly randomly. Great choice. Good portions. Delicious food. And though the restaurant was very busy, we did not 'get lost' in the shuffle. Recommend!

I'm always a bit suspicious when you're taken to a shop or restaurant by a guide or driver...my immediate thought is poor quality and a bung for the chap in question. Not at all in this case. My wife's crab dish and my upsized prawn dish were both very good and plentiful, well seasoned with delicious sauces. On top of... More

We were a bit worried about service as around 80 people from a tour bus came in at same time as us and thought we could be in for a long wait. However, we were looked after well and had dinner in front of us within 10 minutes, which was great. Highly recommend the green pepper crab, one of the... More

We ate here on our first night in Kep and were not disappointed. The food was beautiful. We ordered various fish dishes (including the famous Kampot pepper crab) and all were delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive and were happy to call our tuck tuck driver when we were ready to return to our guest house. We would recommend... More

This restaurant is worth a visit for the very excellent and famous crab dishes. The service is good and the restaurant has good sea views. However the drinks are very hit and miss. I would avoid the cocktails and stick to the well know brands of soft drinks, wine and beer.

Thank notdunroamin
