Came to the Rusty Keyhole when I heard about how good the ribs were and they were actually pretty amazing The portion was massive and the meat was perfectly cooked with a great sauce, the mash was also good as well as the coleslaw. My friends both got the burgers they did as well which also looked amazing. Although this... More

Known for their giant rack of pork ribs. It will take two or three people to eat them! However, last night much wife and I had the Chicken Fajitas. They were very good. The restaurant is very simple and not fancy at all. The staff are nice and cheerful.

Not on the riverfront, but on one of the popular roads leading from it. All the usual menu options in comfortable surroundings.

There is just one thing to say about the Ribs at thin place..... Wow. Pay the extra 4000 riel (1 usd!) for their special mash, and you will roll out of there. Highly recommended

Great food and generous portions. They are known for the ribs, we ordered a half rack and shared, it was enough for both of us. Good service, clean, very pleasant outdoor seating area. Popular with the expats.

I came here with a motorcycle tour group and was recommended I order the ribs and I'm so glad I did. Possibly the best, meatiest, juiciest, tastiest ribs I've ever had in my life. The photo doesn't do it justice.

Being going to this Restaurant/Bar for over 10 years now every time I'm in kampot. It used to be a big hangout for the expat crowd and tourists alike. Food was and cheerful and the rack of ribs was the talk of the town. Unfortunately this is no longer the case. The staff are over personal to the point of... More

We came here in the evening and the only thing they had was fish and chips which was pretty small for 6 bucks. We also ordered bloody Mary's and had to adjust them ourselves as they came watery and bland. Helen is a gem though and the wait staff does a good job. Just have to let people know what... More
