We found this bar in passing and went in for an afternoon coffee. However we left after having our coffee as well as 2 shots of fisu (vodka mixed with fisherman friend sweets). They have a bell which customers can ring which means they are buying a round for the whole bar and it was rung during our visit, so... More

I was surprised at this find - recommended to us and it was a little gem. Fish and chips with real mushy peas (ok not for everyone); good burgers and pizzas and fierce cocktails that didn't spare the alcohol. What more do you want? Very friendly English service. Go there. Particularly on a Saturday night for the fun or Sunday... More

Mars Bar is a highlight of my visits to Khao Lak. It's always got a fun atmosphere going, and the later it gets, the more fun it gets. Typically English food that people keep coming back for, a comfy chill-out zone at the back if you just need some quiet time, and staff that keep you entertained all evening. Love... More

We had lunch at Mars Bar while exploring Bang Niang and it was delicious. The best pizza in Khao Lak according to our kids! All homemade. Beers were cold and we were sitting outside so a great view of the street to watch the world go by. The restaurant is only small so get there early or book for dinner... More

The beers were well priced as was food although servings not huge but enough. Our party had the steak pies chips and curry sauce, one had a burger (small)... More

Our family is vegetarian and so it was great to find a place serving so many vegetarian items. Kids enjoyed Cheesy Chip Butties and Pie, Chips and Gravy. Falafel also fantastic. Good cold drinks and really friendly welcoming atmosphere. Thankyou.
