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

Delicious western food. Pie and mash was delicious, I'm still dreaming of their special mash with garlic butter and cheese. Nice relaxed vibe, gets lively and they have different nights on.

My friends took me there for beer. Lot of farang were in relax atmosphere and enjoy chatting with the owner, Mr.Mars. Icey chilled beers,good music, uhh, I like the place. But the Burger that I ordered was just terrible. Burned meat with no sauce.I want to believe this is irregular. Please check the food quality before serving.

From the minute you arrive you feel very welcome. The owner will - from we could see from others - come to your table and welcome you. We had pizzas which was very tasteful , beers and drinks and all was served with a big smile and good service. Prices were very reasonable. Highly recommended.
