Description: The River Bar is a full Bar and Restuarant sitting along the Stung Sangke River. We offer a wide variety of Khmer dishes and some western. Outside seatings, scenic view of the river and an ambient look in the evening. We are currently under new management and our prices are fair if not cheap. We do take out to legit NGO's and businesses that request our service. We have real ice cream and cold drinks. Extensive menu and Happy hour on Angkor draft is only 50 cents through the hours of 5pm to 8pm everyday. We also offer a 15% discount on all food products on Tuesdays during our lunch hour which is from 10am to 1pm. We also have free movie night on Fridays starting at 7:30pm. Along with our movie night, happy hour runs for certain mixed drinks and shots. So come and check out the place for yourself and experience a unique setting of The River Bar.

It is nice on a hot day to sit by the river. Wish there was more wind. Then the rain came. It finally got cooler.

Lovely location by the river under the shades of big trees. Food is not expensive, 2-4$ mains. Friendly staff, restaurant garden with herbs and lettuce! One of the nicest in Battambang.

I came here for my birthday. The food was good for the price. I enjoyed the atmosphere the most though! Servers are friendly but don't really speak English very well, but they are understandable. Everyone joined in and sang "Happy Birthday" to me!

Living in Battambang, it's always nice to stop at The River for a drink. Located by the river, it's a nice place to chill.
