Wouldn't normally seek out a British run bar on holiday but had to following the reviews. So glad we did. Mars and his wife are so wonderful, friendly and welcoming. The food is great if you are missing home comforts and Mars will even play (and dance to) a bit of Frank Zappa, if you request it. Made some lifelong... More

Great people, great atmosphere and great food (featuring some clever variations on beloved pies!) what a warm welcome and what a wonderful place to create some special memories. Down a Fisu shot or ten for me!!

We stayed in Khao Lak for 2 weeks and I used Trip Advisor for recommendations on where to eat as there was so much choice. As much as we enjoyed thai food we needed something different and it was at a point when we just wanted some good ole plain comfort food. We made our way to Mars Bar and... More

Excellent host and staff, friendly locals, football available to order - excellent - nothing to dislike really as the greeting was warm and the service first class. Cheap wholesome food too for the backpacker.

I’m a bit late submitting this review; my PC threw a tantrum last week, possibly FISU withdrawal. We discovered Mars Bar during our first visit to Khao Lak in 2012 and were glad to return this year. This is not a tourist bar but a ‘local’ favoured by ex pats and the Dive teams working in the area, and like... More

We arrived wet and bedraggled after a down pour. My other half had pasty and chips and I had a burger and chips. I love Thai food but sometimes you just need that hit of familiar food and it was great. Such good value as well. Thanks, we will be back for more next year.
