Organised a dinner for 65 people - they didn't disappoint! Tasty food - crab in fresh kampot pepper was a highlight but dishes such as prawns in coconut milk was also delicious (and a little easier to eat). Special mention to the special seafood fried rice too

Busy - but that's a good thing with a fish restaurant. Service is very quick and business-like. If you prefer large crabs you'll have to ask. Go and choose one from the tank/bowl. We love ginger but the amount they use completely overwhelms everything. The crab is delicious. Really recommend this place.

Started with spring rolls (overpriced, flavorless sauce) and fried morning glory which was so salty made my tounge swell. My boyfriend ordered the crab with kampot pepper - knowing this is the thing to order! Crabs were small and terribly difficult to open/eat. He described this as 90% work and 10% satisfaction. They seemed to not have been cooked properly.... More

Visited due to the Lonely Planet recommendation. The table was right at the waterfront. We had the Crab with Kampot Pepper (regular size) and the squid with Kampot Pepper + Nice location Attentive staff Pepper sauce 👍🏻👍🏻 Good price - Crab is very weary to eat Regular size is a little small for a hungry stomach

The hype is all true! The crab here is fresh and delightful, and you can get it prepared in a ton of different ways. Great with cold beer (available)! Heads up-in case you are wondering, the "fried crab with green peppercorns" is more of a stir-fry than a deep-fry...guilt-free! The staff is very courteous, and you can sit close to... More

Although there are more than 10 seafood restaurants around but Kimly is the best one because of the sauce they made for the seafood. Seafood are fresh and better to book it so make sure you can have a nice seat or a seat.

I have had the good fortune of traveling around the worlds and experiencing culture through food. In 2012 (the review date wouldn't let me go back further), my wife and I visited Kimly for a sunset dinner. We were told to have the Kampot Pepper Crab. It was so delicious we came back the next night for dinner again. Fast... More

Stopped for lunch whilst on a short visit to kep. Portions are massive -the large sized crab with coconut served 3 of us! The crab was delicious and fresh and a vegetarian dish of potato and cauliflower also a winner. Beer is cheap at $1 a bottle. The crab was very messy and my only complaint was that no wet... More
