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.

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.

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
