Friendly and fun

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 !

We were staying a small hotel on Bangniyan and went out for breakfast because the breakfast in the hotel was poor. I hear about mars bar from some guides in a diving center. We visited the mars bar 2 times at 9:00am for breakfast, but it was closed. Finally, we went to another restaurant in Khaolak town instead.

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.

Whenever I am travelling I look on Trip Advisor for good places to eat. Mars Bar was just around the corner from where I was staying and was rated very highly, at #5 in Khao Lak. I thought it was well worth a visit, late one afternoon, for an early dinner. The first impressions are always important but not a... More

Having been travelling around Asia for the last 6 months Mars bar offered a real taste of home. All the burgers and pies are home made and you can definitely taste the difference.

Mars bar is legendary!!! Get yourself down there! Proper English food!! Amazing!! After two weeks of thai noodles it was amazing to eat some cheesy chips!! The drinks are excellent, with regular ladies nights making drinks half priced for the ladies! Excellent atmosphere and Mars is a hero!! Hugely recommend it!

Great bar, well presented and clean, friendly and welcoming staff.. Lively atmosphere even though the bar didn't seem to busy.., great music... Best of all the food, one thing I've found with thailand is there english food is awful although this bar really offers all the British home comforts at a great price and cooked just the way I like...
