“Amazing seafood salad”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Went here a couple of times for lunch and while it's tempting to keep going back to crab and pepper sauce, I opted to try a couple fo seafood salads (banana flower salad and green mango salad) both of which were absolutely amazing. Service is also a lot more friendly and attentive than next door at Kimly. Highly recommended!

“Best restaurant in Kep”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

It looks, tastes, and feels upscale, but is actually not more expensive than the other restaurants in the crab market in Kep. The crab dishes are really well done, but they have a lot of other stuff on the menu. Maybe most impressive is the kitchen is completely in full view when you walk in and it is spotless! We've gone many times and so far I think my favourite is the crab hot pot, just so flavourful and delicious!

“We went back 3 times.”
Reviewed December 28, 2013 via mobile

It lives up to its name, the crab in any form is delicious. We have tried 3 different crab dishes and they all where amazing. Also the other grilled sea bits where great. Staff is great and friendly and speak english well and the view is amazing.

They close on wed or thursday afternoon when the staff goes to study.

Go there if your in kep.

“Upmarket restaurant amonst the crab shacks”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

Good food fast service and clean. If you look either side it is the original crab restaurants. This just has a bit more style. But you must eat in one of the other ones to.
Try the tempura vegetables well worth it

“Excellent seafood”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

We were recommended another restaurant by our hotel but were attracted by the name!
This was a superb meal. We live in an area that has excellent seafood so are not easily impressed but really enjoyed fish brochette starter, followed by steamed crab in coconut, squid with Kamkot pepper and morning glory as vegetable.
You can view the kitchen as you enter and it is spotlessly clean.
The tables are on an extended area overlooking the water, with a wonderful view.
Service is good allowing for some language problems - this is easily surpassed by asking for the head waitor . It is just the beginning of the season after all.
