Really nice location on the beach. The beer is served in an ice cold glass which is the best thing ever midday on this beach. Food okay but we had better.

The restaurant is at Otres beach 1. We had a very good dinner tonight @Bamboo Shack. The staff is really friendly and we got their full attention - as soon as our glass was empty they asked if we need something else. The food is delicious and they offer fresh sea food like e.g Red snapper. Furthermore you can play... More

We stayed in 3 different beach huts during our stay in Sihanoukville and this one was by far the best value. Clean room with a fan and mosquito net provided, good clean shower and toilet facilities and excellent wifi for $10 per night. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.

Great staff! Great location for a sundowner or two overlooking the Gulf of Siam. The food is average.

Had dinner here with a group of friends and absolutely none of us were unhappy with our food or our drinks. However the constant battle all evening to get some service at the table (bear in mind this place was absolutely empty) really put the night down a notch. Real shame, when that is one of the most basic things... More

Went to this restaurant on a whim, having seen the menu during a beach walk. I would recommend the khmer menu and particularly their seafood amok, the best I have eaten so far in Cambodia. The service is quick and cheerful and the location fantastic, right on the beach.

Really enjoyed the Bamboo Shack's fish amok (a must have in Cambodia) and a couple of quiet beers. On the beach and worth finding.

Stopped here for dinner, made this mistake of not getting khmer good. It was just edable and only because I was starving! Service was not very attentive got a can of soft drink it was flat.

One of the best beachfront joints on Otres 1. Step off the deck right onto the beach. Go for a swim while you wait for your food. Friendly service, great menu and a fabulously chilled vibe. We couldn't get enough of the place.

Maybe I made a misyake of ordering a Burger in Aa Khmer shack. All food was petty expensive so this looked reasonable at 5$. Dry meat, dry bun. Tasteless fries. Poor overall. Good views though.
