A lot of divers there when I went there on April. Beers were icy cold and we had a good time there. But I was disappointed with the curry. It was just watery and no taste. My girl friend said the chicken burger was delicious. We will be back on November and I will try it.

Hi there , thanks for the review i'm sorry you didn't enjoy our curry people usually complement me on the curries , next time you come i will spice it up a lot for you but maybe you'll be trying the Piri piri chicken steak burger that your girlfriend enjoyed. Thanks again and hope to see you next time .... More

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!

Good day to you and thank you so much for your lovely review, my success here is largely due to my wife and 2 marvelous girls who have really took to the hospitality trade like ducks to water and have learned how to cook English food perfectly. Thanks again for the review and we'll see you next time . Cheers... More

Word of mouth brought myself and my boyfriend to this bar and it was the best reccomendation we received during our holiday.

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.

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.
