If you are looking for a break from Asian food than this is the place to visit in Khao Lak. Service is friendly and a good choice of English food. It's basic but good tasting food and in particular the breakfast is good, with decent bacon and proper sausages as opposed to the frankfurter type served in Asia. We also... More

Hello and thank you for such a lovely review. We all love Thai food but as you say sometimes you need a break from the spice. I'm glad you enjoyed the food and Thursday night is always fun in Mars Bar . Tanks again and hope to see you again. Cheers Mars and Maem. More

Cool bar, friendly staff, appetizing menu, and average drink prices. Menu offered several popular British dishes. Seemed very popular with ex-pats and tourists.

Mars the owner really makes this place, he is friendly and full of useful information. Definitely recommend if you're missing burger and chips or just go for a beer and make some new friends.

After many days of asian food we wanted something that was different. Mars certainly met our wants. Is an english pub, so had a beer and the most wonderful fish burgers made with beautiful homemade buns and handmade chips.

Ate here a couple of times on a recent vacation in Khao Lak. Really friendly and helpful staff. Some good food available too including Chicken Pie and other British classics. Hand cooked chips and real vinegar! Recommended especially to Brits, but anyone will get a warm welcome for sure.
