“Simple food”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

A very basic place. Food is ok, except the Kampot pepper dishes that are very good. Service is... indifferent. Many locals eat there. Don't expect white gloves service or extravagant cuisine. This is as basic as it gets.

“Go local”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

A wooden structure going out over the river giving great breezy views of the mountains on the opposite bank. Service is nothing special and whilst the seafood dishes were nice enough over-priced taking into account the surroundings you are eating in.

“Good seafood”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

It may look 'rustic' and the entrance is a muddy mess at the moment, but locals come here with groups of family and friends for seafood and with good reason. Don't expect silver service here, do expect plenty of character and good food.

We had fried shrimp with the local green pepper (tiny shrimp, full of flavour, pepper excellent), a noodle salad that resembled Thailand's yam woon sen, and vegetable soup. Big portions, and the noodle salad even had a good bite to it. The staff, like elsewhere in Kampot, had a bit of an attitude, but all it took was a tongue-in-cheek reply to make the smiles come out. I'd come here again - to try the crab, for instance. I wouldn't bother with the European food that is equally on the menu; stick to what they do best!

“Poor hygiene, zero ambience, disgusting food and bad service.”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

This is a rickety structure built over the stagnant waters of the river. The approach to the restaurant is a construction site, dusty & filled with rubble. There are 3-4 stray dogs that keep roaming through the restaurant. There are atleast a dozen waitresses, but they are busy chatting with each other.
We ordered for some seafood soup, crab curry, vegetable curry & chicken with Kampot pepper. They served dishes in a sequential order with a good 10 minutes between each. The soup came in the last! The chicken was pathetic: zero flesh, rubbery, undercooked. The vegetables in the curry were barely washed and tasted like mud. Undercooked too and the curry had a grainy annoying consistency. The seafood though, which seems to be the only thing they get right, was fresh & well cooked.
