Great pizza and lovely owner!

We had dinner and drinks here. Small but very lovely place. Food was gorgeous and the owner was so friendly, we enjoyed hearing the story of how he had started the business and it's clear to see its thriving. Definitely worth a visit!

I first visited in the late afternoon and it was very quiet. I was not to sure what to make of the place. But I went back at least four/five times after that and had a great time meeting and drinking with people from all over the world. Last Sunday Mars was going to put on a nut roast but... More

Word of mouth brought myself and my boyfriend to this bar and it was the best reccomendation we received during our holiday. Mars and his girls are the friendliest group who truly made our evenings in Bang Niang near Khao Lak. The drinks prices are cheap and the variety is vast. If you're going to visit you have to try...

Visited Khao Lak for the first time and we had 10 great days there, my only regret is that we didn't find Mars Bar earlier because the food was delicious and the people there, the staff, the regulars and Marcelle himself were all brilliant and very welcoming. Mars loves the same music I love so sitting there and loving every... More

I was in Khao Lak for an escape from Bangkok, and I am happy to say that this was one of the places I visited for a meal. The steak pie with mash and gravy was the best I have had in 3 years of living in Thailand (sometimes Australians get that craving), and very reasonably priced. As was the... More

We met up with some friends on Khao Lak who were on holiday and decided to go here to have a bit of lunch and Initially went here for a change from Thai. The place itself is a restaurant/bar with nothing fancy in terms of the decor etc, However you don't go here for that but the great home cooked... More

Cool tunes, quirky menu of western, (mainly British), favourites with a Thai twist, all made fresh to order. Very welcoming retreat from the market when you just want to relax and have a few cool beers and a snack.

Lobbed in here after getting dragged around the market by my partner and had a few beers/cocktails. Staff were friendly and happy. Wanted to come back for the Sunday roast and Yorkshire pudding but can't remember much after the owner shouted the bar a Fisu. Thanks for the good time!

Got shunted out of our seats, as a regular with a self imposed affliction requiring a reinforced chair apparently needed them. Food, I took the burger, which was tasty but dripping with grease to the point it saturated the bun. Beer was cold and inexpensive. I won't go back here.
