Put simply the ribs here were out of this world delicious! I'm normally not a fan of ribs as I find they have too much fat, little meat on the bone and are mostly just covered in a sickly sweet sauce. These ribs however were so good - the meat was tender and lean and slipped off the bone. We... More

For 27 usd, I fed 4 people, 1.5 kilo's of bbq pork, entree's and beers. This place is really good value meal wise, a real fun place make sure you eat here at least once while you stay in Kampot. Make sure you DEET up if sitting outside! Inside is a little dark, its generally quiet and peaceful.

...but still nice. The ribs were really tasty, the portions ok. We had a full rack together (as recommended) and still had room to spare. Nice location at the riverfront too!

I'm going to try be as succinct as possible primarily because I have a raging hangover. They have ribs and they are rather awesome. My fellow diner had noodles and she said they were great too. Good and friendly service, nice views of the river and cold beer. And they have ribs. Done

Sad but true, I was severely underwhelmed. For all the hype, unfortunately the ribs did not cut it for me. Personally I found the meat bland, dry and chewy, the mash undercooked and the fries were soggy. But try it for yourself. A lot of people have reviewed otherwise, perhaps I'm a harsh critic, or I caught them on a... More

Huge fan of stir fried Chicken and Ginger. They don't do it spicy but I asked for peppers on the side and they always gave me really spicy ones. It was so good I ate hear everyday for lunch for 3 days in a row. I didn't have the ribs that they are famous for, but watched friends eat them... More

We had dinner here on an evening. The restaurant was in front of the riverside and it is hard to miss.. As expected, we ordered the ribs and a chicken salad... even a half rack was more than enough for me.... the ribs were just simply superb and totally lived up to its reputation... the salad portion is big and...

I was in Kampot 4 days and had been told about Rusty Keyhole's Ribs. I most definitely was not disappointed! They are magnificent! Large serve even 1/2 kilo with beautiful smooth mashed potato, a carnivore's dream. Fast and friendly service, cold beer, relaxed atmosphere, just perfect. BEST RIBS in Cambodia! I went back twice more before I left and eachtime... More
