After reading reviews about the food here we decided before our trip to khao lak that we would visit here. Boy were we sorry we went to the bother. Food was the worst we had eat the whole two weeks.

Well what a strange review i'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your visit to Mars Bar but in answer to your comments, we pride ourselves on our chips which every body (except you ) reckons they are the best in Thailand, I never use old oil only top quality Sunflower oil. Are you sure you were in Mars Bar ?... More

We was recommended to go. The food was home made fresh, we had pie and a Cornish pastie with home made chips and peas and beans. Well worth another visit music was 60's cd just up our street only thing to complain was that the beer wasn't cold enough for us. But well worth the visit.

Never fails if you need a taste of home or even a taste of home 'with a twist' like the Massaman Pie. Their home baked bread is perhaps the best in town and is a treat with the Mars Bar Fry up. If you're in town for a while, it's a great place to sit and spend time watching life... More

We recently visited this bar on our trip to Khao Lak. Truly fantastic home cooked food, both Thai and European style. It's run by really friendly, welcoming people(with great music taste) They do a cracking Sunday Roast as well! You have to let them know before the day though. We're veggies and I swear it was one of the best... More

Love the review thank you, It's strange but some one just complained about our chips and I had to ask them if they were sure they were in Mars bar. We usually have a great crowd of locals and tourists and it's always an interesting night. Thanks again for the review. Cheers Mars and Maem. More

Thanks for the review but I must say we don't really do desserts so you must have been lucky and got there on a night when we did some special little sweetness. Thanks again for the review. Cheers Mars and Maem. More
