The small crab dish that finally arrived (open crab in coconut milk with onions), was reasonably tasty but the crabs were so tiny and devoid of meat that it was hardly worth the effort after waiting over an hour for it, especially with the wifi not working.

There were no other customers when eight of us, starving since it was 2pm, entered the restaurant. We ordered fast dishes like spaghetti, fried rice, and fried noodles. First we were patient, but as time goes by we became moody. We waited for about an hour for the first dish to be served. The last dish came about half and... More

I am sat at the lefthand table on the waters edge, I've just eaten a perfectly cooked BBC squid, sun's just set in front of us, my missus is STILL picking away at her crab with Kampot pepper. Absolutely great seafood, presented beautifully. I am sure all the restaurants I this crab market are good, all I know for sure... More

The view like all the restaurants here is nice. The food was good and fairly priced The wait staff had good English. It's a good restaurant, but nothing to set it apart from others

We have had a better meal here two years ago, so maybe we just struck it on the wrong night. The service and the food were very disappointing this time. It took an hour and a half to get our food, and the one waitress was very rude and looked upset whenever we asked for something. She didn't bring any... More

We went for lunch and had the seafood platter starter: it is a big portion, so enough if you ask for another main for two people to leave full. It had crab, shrimps, fried fish fillet and squid. Also, pepper crab! It tasted amazing! Didn't try desserts (not much to choose). Good place to try the crab, although not sure... More

I ate here a couple times during my stay in Kep and really enjoyed the food. I tried everything from boiled crab to shrimp and squid and liked everything I tried. The seafood was very fresh! The sunset is also very good from the deck. If you want to read more and see pics about Trei check out my blog... More

I dined at four different restaurants in Kep's crab market. All of them were great, but I had my best meal at Trei. The pepper crab here beat out the one at La Baraka, which was also outstanding. The papaya-mint shake was the best tropical-fruit shake I've ever had anywhere. Like all the other crab-market restaurants, Trei has outdoor seating... More

We had a delicious lunch at Trei. It was a seafood platter for $12 US. One crab, large piece of grilled fish ( no bones), four prawns and a good serve of squid. We sat overlooking the water, enjoying the view of passing fishing boats. The restaurant was very clean, service friendly and there was a spotless western style toilet.... More

Description
In the middle of the crab shacks at Kep Crab Market, Trei is a clean, atmospheric restaurant that goes a little further than its neighbours. It serves the same seafood and crabs fresh from the sea that laps the restaurant's dining platform but is a little cleaner, is more tastefully decorated and in addition to that standard crab shack fare offers delicious salads and appetizers. Prices are no higher than the other restaurants in the Market though the dining experience feels classier. It's located next to the Toucan bar.
