Koh Rong Restaurants and Dining

Where to Eat in Koh Rong

The Koh Rong dining scene is pretty modest, at the moment. The island is only just starting to become popular, so a lot of the most popular restaurants are little more than beach shacks. However, there are also some excellent stand-out eateries, particularly around Koh Tui Village, where you can enjoy high-quality local and European cuisine at very reasonable prices.

There are currently no really high-end restaurants on Koh Rong. However, if you’re looking for a romantic dining experience, what could possibly beat enjoyed a chilled-out meal on a white-sand beach? Take a look through our restaurant listings and reviews below to find the best choice for your tastes.

All Restaurants in Koh Rong


Bong’s has a cool and friendly beach pub vibe, with seating on the sand available. They claim to make the best burgers on Tui Beach – a claim which is contested by neighbouring Vagabonds – and they are very good, mixing beef and pork for a juicier patty. You can also find some excellent Tex-Mex and British food on the menu, with the nachos being especially good.

Da Matti? Italian Restaurant & Reggae Bar

Da Matti? (the question mark is part of the name) is a slightly odd mix of Italian restaurant and reggae bar. A long-established venue on one of Koh Tui’s three piers, it was previously known as La Mami. The Italian influences include excellent gnocchi, arguably the best pasta on Koh Rong and the romantic candlelit table settings along the pier. The reggae theme is evident from the vivid colour scheme, good selection of cocktails, the floor cushions and low tables further down the pier and the easy-going flexible music policy. Food prices are around US$5 for main courses.

  • Opening Hours: Daily early to late
  • Location: Community Pier, Koh Tui Village, Koh Rong
  • Tel: +855 10 245 712
  • Cuisine: Italian

Koh Lanta

A guesthouse and bakery, Koh Lanta is said to serve the best pizzas in Koh Rong, cooked in an eco-friendly oven. The burgers are also pretty good and the quality of the ice cream is impressive. Open 24 hours, the service is excellent and the parasol-shaded seating in front, on the beach, makes it a great place to enjoy a snack on a hot day. The venue’s name comes from a French Survivor TV show.

  • Opening Hours: All day
  • Location: Tui Beach, Koh Rong

Sunrise Restaurant and Massage

As the name suggests, the restaurant is on an east-facing beach – Coconut Beach – with comfortable red clam-shell seating and excellent food. As a bonus, you can also get a great beach massage. The owner, Vuth, is especially friendly, even by Koh Rong’s high standards, and the restaurant’s veggie burgers are highly recommended. The place has a nice, chilled out vibe, making it a great place to hang out throughout the day

The Moon Restaurant

One of the nicest local restaurants on Koh Rong, The Moon has quite a classy interior, by beach shack standards. It has friendly owners, a great location near Sok San Village, impressive wine and cocktail lists and a menu of Khmer and Thai dishes. The most popular dishes are mostly the standard favourites of those two cuisines, including fish amok, pad Thai and papaya salad. Prices are low and the atmosphere is very pleasant.
