Had a really good quarter pounder with cheese here at reef. The bar is a friendly young scene - aimed at backpackers but the prices aren't that cheap! About 200 baht for the burger but western food isn't cheap around these parts anyway. The burger was really good although an advanced warning: if you don't like mayo then say so!... More

Johnny makes his bar a popular venue for small groups supplying great food accompanied by a good range of drinks both alcoholic and non. A very popular pool table is a draw. More

We visited early in the afternoon for snacks (sweet potato wedges and cheesy garlic bread) and later in the evening for dinner. I thoroughly enjoyed my whopper burger and the snacks were delicious. There was not much choice for veggies though and my girlfriend had to pick her only real option, the veggie burger. We had an issue with the... More

We loved the ambiance of this place along the down street. We stopped for a drink. Appreciated to find English cider! The cocktail was too sweet. Ask for less sugar if you like it this way!

I emailed the owner a week before an important match (dutch classic) and he responded quickly. He told me to show up early and that his staff would put the match on. We were with a group of 11 so that was no problem. We showed up around 5 and ordered drinks and food. The burgers are nice but a... More

Best meal so far and we have been travelling Thailand for 3 weeks. Three of us had the burgers and one had fish and it was all lovely. Would definitely recommend to everyone. Also it was pretty cheap ... it was only 170 baht for my chicken burger and chips and happy hour on cocktails 🍹😊

After +1month old Thai food only it is nice with a break. That break could very well be here, nice and fresh burger at a good price.
