Chivas Shack bar restaurant and guest house on Street 130, Phnom Penh no longer exists. It was burnt down and nothing remains. Fire occurred in July 2012. A sad loss as their barbecues where great and they did good work for local charity, choicecambodia.

This place reminded me of a bottom of the barrel guest house in Paharganj in Delhi circa 1992 only with tv and WIFI. I was sent here by my hotel in Siem Reap (a pretty ok one) tho no clue why anyone would recommend anyone here. Tuk tuk did pick me up at the bus tho when I arrived and... More

We had arranged a pickup,... More

Me and my friends went to Chiva Shack in Phnom Penn and we had intentions of staying one night and it took a week to get away from the place. They treat you better in Chiva Shack than anywhere I have ever been before or since. Nothing is to much trouble and they know how to make you feel at... More

Found this place in Phnom Phen on my third day in the city and it was a oasis. I stayed in the lakeside area for the first night as recommended by Lonely Planet and other travelers but it was a mistake. The area is shut off from the rest of the city and the guesthouses area dirty. I stayed in... More
