I have patronised Sharkys for 15 years but have not been there since 2011. It seems that there are less customers than there once was. Even on band nights, customers seem thin on the ground, despite the good: food, music and great staff. The staff are the best in Phnom Penh - freindly attentive, funny, honest and really hard working... More

I've been to Sharky Bar three times over the past twenty years, and when I returned last month, it was as good as ever. Big, spacious bar area, great staff, pool tables and selection of beers, I feel very safe in there and never seen any trouble. Music on some nights.

I like this place but I am more then a little dissapointed in the new SMALL GLASS that is ONLY used for the more expensive higher quality beers at Sharkys. It looks to be about 10 ounces but that is only if it is toped off, which it is not, so looking at about 8 ounces of beer!!! The standard... More

Had a good time on return visit to Sharky's after long absence. Staff attentive and low-key; good prices; friendly clientele; good music! There must be some unfortunate experiences here, according to other reviews, but for me all fine. Customers should behave and safeguard valuables as in any busy bar/pub!

I went there on a Saturday night and they had a live band playing rock and roll covers. It's a big place with a couple of pool tables, reasonably priced drinks and a chill place to spend a couple hours

Sharky bar and restaurant has been operating in Phnom Penh for many many years. It is a great place to hang out, play some pools and making new friends. It is also a so-called pick up joint for those lonely travellers. This restaurant serves great food and the pizza is really good. It is just so awesome to be going... More

I have visited Sharkys almost yearly since there ever was a Sharkys. Ancient lore of the Jesters MC Club out of Pattaya were the foundation of a rock n roll heritage. Sharkys was in a decaying orbit in my mind for the past few years, regardless I returned for the annual pilgrimage. Last year, about this time I ordered a... More

What a legend of a place. Rock n roll for expats, visitors and locals. Try out the Mortar cocktail. About 8 shots and other bits served in an actual mortar shell! Staff are really, um, interesting and you get the feeling if you do something wrong, then it might be a long trip on your bum down the stair case.... More

A Phnom Penh bar with its own legend: a Phnom Penh institution. Sharky’s celebrated its 20th anniversary December 2015. Live music. Open mic nights.

An institution that has revived and surged on since the recent death of one of the original owners a few months ago and I am glad they are booking a wider range of bands than before when it was repetitive. Great staff and a new kitchen is bring Sharky back to a great venue
