Great UK atmosphere

When you walk down the river side you will probably don't miss the Rusty restaurant, because the place always with people, drinking and eating great dishes. One of the great places to be in Kampot, for sure. Enjoy!

The best ribs ever!!! Get it with mashed potato because the gravy sauce from the ribs is amazing. Also did a fantastic lemon pie.

Great place in town with perfect ribs and other meat dishes. Have a beer and enjoy the best pork ribs in Asia. First go to Lazy cat around the corner to build up some appetite!

Had the runs between 3 - absolutely incredible! Most amount of meat I've ever seen on a rack and only a few dollars. A must have

I can confidently say that the Rusty Keyhole serves some of the best ribs in the world. When you take into account that a full rack and a beer costs less than 10 USD, you have a pretty much unbeatable combination. If you're in or near Kampot, give this place a shot, you won't regret it!

Very tasty ribs with lots of meat on the back of them. Maybe a little fatty for some people but prefect got me. Only complaint contrary to what a lot of other people have said is that I thought the portions were small as sharing the ribs for 2 left us both hungry and me wishing I'd tried the challenge...

Sitting here right now ordered the ribs which taste like chewing on an old shoe in sweet and sour sauce. Not sure what kind of ribs people have eaten here but coming from North America these are not ribs people???? Had better ones at Otres Saturday market. The service is appalling. The Cambodian girls waitressing sit at a table chatting... More

Do not be deceived by the shabby looking exterior of this place. You cannot go to Kampot without eating here, all the meals are hearty and delicious but the ribs are just out of this world amazing, make sure you are very very hungry as the plate is huge!!!

Food is okay abit overpriced for Kampot. The ribs aren't what they used to be probably due to the lease expiring in near future. Thus maintenance from the footpath inwards is dangerous ok. The service is very average, not what it use to be. The toilet I think reflects upon the future. It's truely a shame and it's nothing upon... More
