“Ordinary Sports Bar at best”
Reviewed March 18, 2010

I had dinner at a place called the Gym Bar a couple nights ago and all I can really say for the place is it is just an ordinary Sports bar at best... The service was not good, the food was okay, but the order was wrong and a little pricey for the environment you have to eat it in. The place could use a good cleaning for sure. Would love to have all of the TV's they have hanging around, but I will not be returning... Sorry, just my honest view of the place.

“Great bar especially if you want to escape the sleeze”
Reviewed February 16, 2010

Gym bar is a brilliant oasis in Phnom Penh. The owner Randall is a great host and his staff are friendly and provide great service. Gym bar is a sports bar piping in major sports from around the globe. The perfect place to catch a fix of back home. The food is very good. At the time I was there the owner was working on a pie range. I had a pie and chips for dinner just want I was looking for after several weeks in Asia. We had a fun night there and with tuk tuk's at the door it was an easy and cheap trip home.

“Sports. Pub food. Big screen. Gold.”
Reviewed July 27, 2009

A great pub, very well managed and with a menu that could outdo any Australian or UK pub. Always showing Premier League, NFL, AFL, NRL, Cricket, Super 14 and whatever sports they can get their hands on, you will rarely be disappointed (although I have missed out on seeing a few matches of Australian World Cup football qualifiers).

The menu has great burgers, pies and local varieties, and they've even recently added a salad menu. The bar is full and can take good care of you during a long cricket test match.

The costs are quite high, but the bar can't be matched in Phnom Penh. When there are no matches are on, the bar is indeed quiet, but as soon as the sport starts the crowds fill in. The best factor of the bar is the management though. The staff are great, the place is clean, the pool table and internet is free and unlike any other sports bars in Phnom Penh, and most other bars for that matter, there are no beer girls or bar girls and the crowd that they attract.

Can't be beaten.
