Ribs are okay at best, if you're being nice . Taste is good, but meat is rather dry. Staff is a bit grumpy.

First day back in Kampot and had to have the Ribs. STILL FANTASTIC . The meat is so tender it falls off the rack and the sauce is smokey and wonderful. Accompanying mash is good and slaw is ok. Rustys is the central hub on the riverfront and a great place to enjoy some cold Cambodian beer

Try their 'sunday roast', only on sunday, it worth the day.. they have choices of beef, pork and lamb, served with grill potatoes & carrot, boiled broccoli & green peas, Yorkshire puddings(its like a bread) and mashed potatoes, comes with onion brown sauce, but early reservation is a must as it sells like hot cakes! Love it!

We were there two times. Food quality was poor. First time we ordered Khmer food (spicy beef and shrimp w/ Kampot pepper), there were dead ants in the rice. Gave it a second try with western food (chicken kebap, fries, garlic bread), the fried stuff tasted vile like the fat had been used for a month and to fry about... More

Visited here for the famous ribs but were told there was no bbq without any explanation as to why. Decided to just get toasties as we were hungry, but we were both given the wrong toastie and both were terrible. Returned for the ribs the next day and were pleasantly surprised by how great they were, as well as the... More

We got the ribs share platter for two which comes with your choice of side and coleslaw. We got the keyhole mash which was so so good. I'm not usually a rib eater but, by golly, that was absolutely amazing in terms of taste and fall off the bone texture. Note: they do run out of ribs, we had to... More
