Lamb burger is particularly delicious. Rocket salad with quality beef was great. Free pool table and wifi! We will definitely go back next time when we come to koh tao.

Although it says it's a burger joint, only I had a burger which was excellent! My wife and children had salads and pasta and all enjoyed the food very much!

Best burger I've had in Asia! Got the Dirty Harry burger, was so good. Burgers are huge!! Ask for sauce on the side because it's not actually BBQ. The sweet potato fries are awesome. Beats Bang Burgers!

Right straight up, this place is not cheap. If you are looking for cheap food this isn't for you. But as a treat to the travel-worn? Perfect. The signature Hippo burger with fries was 360 baht I believe, and absolutely delicious.

Went last night and honestly the burgers are so good! Got the chicken wings to start which were also really good. Not too expensive (for the portion size especially) and happy hour offer on cocktails etc 8pm-10pm. I had the caprese burger (beef burger mozzarella pesto and sun-dried tomatoes) with sweet potato fries and would highly recommend! Between 280 -... More

We were very surprised to find such good burgers in Thailand. The meat is really tasty. The fries could be better, but were ok. If you are tired of thai food this is a great alternative. Also very friendly staff, good prices and fast service. Would go there again for sure!
