The food is no world beater and indeed even as a typical tourist menu it can easily be bested at many places in Kata, however the pricing is very good and the location is awesome. As others have noted the constant loop of reggae can get tiresome however I guess it's on me to go elsewhere. 880 baht got us... More

Amazing thai food and so cheap! Beautiful setting eating and drinking right on the beach front. Lovely to stop for a drink if you're just chilling on the beach. Also great to go for dinner or tea. Sometimes food comes out at different times to others you are eating with, but it is very tasty! Overall, great experience.

The bar is nestled up on the rocks under a big tree at the south end of the beach. Great views back up the beach and sunset. Top place to sip on a drink while the kids play on the bear just in front of you.

We stayed at nearby Boathouse Hotel and the Ska bar was the perfect place to drop past for a beer to watch the sunset and listen to some reggae music, which we did most days. The location is unbelievable, the beers cold and staff friendly. We tried a meal which was OK, but quickly found better places in Kata so... More

We got rained in at Ska Bar so decided to see out the storm here. We had lunch which was good (the Tom Yum was great) and a few drinks while the rain thundered away. It was a fun way to pass the time and the view of the storm rolling in was pretty cool.

Tucked away in the southern end of Kata Beach is this great little bar. With stone seating, reggae music at night and weekly fire twirling on the beach to enjoy with idle waves lapping in the background. A pure hedonistic joy - i highly recommend!

We went here after seeing the reviews on the site. We only went for a few cocktails rather than dinner. Frankly the cocktails were horrible, small and the few seats at the bar were ok but nothing special. Sorry to disagree with all these other reviews but this was a beachside food staff with a bit of reggae music playing... More

I read about Ska Bar in a travel guide and really wanted to try it. Loved it. Had a couple of lunches and dinner there. Huge range of choices on the menu, great quality food at very cheap prices and good service. I highly recomment chicken pad thai (200THB) and mango sticky rice (100THB). Located under a banyan tree at... More

Situated at the southern end of Kata beach, Ska Bar is well worth a visit. Whilst I have only sampled the thai selection on the menu, the Ska bar caters for western tastes also. Outstanding som tum and larb gai. Cold beer, great cocktails - and if you catch the Ska on the right day or evening you may even... More

Lovely place to be to watch the sunset. It's located right at the beach, under a tree. Nice cold drinks and delicious food. Free wifi and friendly service too.
