Went for lunch and while the food was good, it's not as good as rated. The bar itself is quite shabby and the service was random. So it's ok but not fantastic.

Hi there whilst we try to cater for all tastes we can't please every one all the time. Anyhow i'm pleased you enjoyed the food here and as I explained in an earlier response after 7 months of busy high season the bar tends to be a bit jaded around the edges but come September all will be shiny and...

Stumbled across this gem of a bar by chance, good job we did as we discovered the delicious masuman pie! The food is fresh & tasty with a Thai twist on British classics . BEWARE THE FISU!!!!!

My husband and I were staying in Khao Lak for our belated honeymoon and had read about Mars Bar online prior to visiting. We decided it would make for a good night out… and we were not wrong!! As well as serving cheap drinks (we first arrived on men’s night so all drinks were half price) and GREAT English food... More

I am happy to say that Mars Bar is still rocking and offering a great social experience. The food is very good and cheap, offering Thai, Western and several fusions of the two. I can still recommend the curry pies whole heartedly, especially the green curry one. Mars, Maem & the team are so friendly and accommodating that you can't... More

We went here for lunch and had a great time. As other reviews say, the cheesy chips are great. Friendly team running the place . If you fancy a break from Thai food (and/or you have fussy children)! Then give it a go, you won't be disappointed !

Called in for a drink prior to visiting the market as very close by. Warm welcome and cold beers. Got talking to a lovely male staff member who told us all about the area and the new police chief rules (no alcohol served between 14.00 - 17.00 every day in Khaolak). A most entertaining few hours.
