The food was great, tasted just like home and the beer was icecold, however it was hard to get the order in since the waitress didnt understand the words we were saying or what was on the menu she also stood and clicked her pen untill we ordered which was annoying.

Hi there and thanks for your review, i'm pleased you enjoyed our food here but i'm sorry you had trouble making one of my girls understand you. You must realize that we are in Thailand and sometimes Thais have difficulty understanding English particularly if it is spoken quickly or with a strong accent. Thanks again for the review.

We were on holiday in Khao lak seeing friends and they invited us for Christmas dinner at the Mars bar. I must admit I was a little dubious about this. All I can say is I was wrong. Serving Christmas dinner for 50 people to the standard that they did was frankly amazing. We are talking proper home cooked food.... More
