My first negative review. Came with a group of 12 adults and 4 kids. Dinner was hit and miss and meals came out sporadically. My papaya salad was spot on in heat - not too much so you can't enjoy it. But my pad se ewe had too much soy in it and a bit soggy from over cooking. I... More

...as there is the Kata Seafood Restaurant on the beach with the Ska Bar right next to it. Great location right on the beach. Good food, low prices and good service. The reggae music is not too loud. When you go up to the next floor (even better view) you can't hear it at all. If you wan to to... More

Great atmosphere, great deco, great view, fun free fire show and snack bbq (for tips) 2 nights a week. Good both in the day and at night. Our favourite at Kata bar so far. Not a fancy place if that is what you are after.but worth a beer or two even if you are

Cool, open air bar on the beach. A great place to end a long day. We have returned there many times while holidaying in Phuket.

Everybody in the know comes to this bar on Kata Beach. Great cocktails , beer and reasonable prices for Phuket. Really nice setting on the beach , great atmosphere and very popular for sundowners at 17.00 hrs. You can quite happily sit here and watch the world go by. Perfect !!!!!!

First timers in Phuket, visited the Ska Bar as it was just up the beach from our hotel. We visited on a week night during low season, so yes it was quiet, but its a place that you can appreciate when you have it nearly to yourself, and can only imagine the fun there when its busy. Its positioned beneath,... More

I absolutely love the laid back, hippie feel of Ska Bar compared to the other bars on Kata Beach. It is situated right at the end of the beach of Kata Beach and is worth the walk! Best views, reggae music playing and has the best vibe! I will definitely come back here for a beer or two!

The food was good but not excellent . Ska bar has an excellent unique atmosphere with great cocktails reasonably prices.Great music mixes even if you're not a huge reggae fan . Good atmosphere ... Revs up after 10 pm so great place for after dinner drinks in awesome position looking over the beach .
