This isn’t an exaggeration when I say the burger I had was the best I’d EVER had. The meat is really, really good quality which is quite rare when on such a small island. We came here twice and I just couldn’t get enough of...More

First burger we had in Thailand and it feels like hip burger place back in Europe. If you want a break from Thai cuisine, this is the place!

Hippo is a friendly burger joint, popular with local ex-pats and tourists. Before the Hippo Bar and Grill now it's changed to Hippo Burger Bistro after a renovation and Menu change. We specialise in big burgers made with love and meat from well treated animals but have many dishes from salads to pasta. good music, pool table and outdoor dining. Great milkshakes and Mojitos too.
