Best burgers so far in SE Asia

We stayed at Central Hostel for a time. We have had dinner several times here at the Reef Bar. It is not the cheapest option in town, but they have great Western Food and the best burgers I had in 4 months of traveling. We had the burger with bacon en cheese. Perfect. Served with french fries and... read more

We arrived at reefs with mild hangovers, some worse than others. We politeley removed our shoes and proceeded to a table. Here we were impressed by the english menu and swiftly ordered. I have a phobia of mushrooms and therefore politeley asked if they could be exchanged for some more bacon as it is the same price on the menu,... More

If your staying in the Mae Haad area of Koh Tao this is the only sports bar without making the trip to sariee. Has several screens and shows several games. I'm a big fan as they would should english championship football as well as the premier league games. If you go in be sure to order one of the chickens... More

We came here to watch a football match which started at 8.30pm. We decided we'd eat there so that we got a good table in front of the big screen. On walking in, we realised it wasn't the place for us at all. I eat mostly vegetarian food, and there was nothing inspiring or different on the menu for me... More

All kinds of sports on the 6 dissent screens; from football to sumo wrestling and basketball to kickboxing. Stayed over the road at Central Hostel so Reef in effect was our common room... I miss this place! Would recommend 😊

Great macaroni cheese :-) amazing chicken and a whopping chicken zinger burger, my partner and I ate here often throughout out 3 month stay on the island. We often went with friends too as it was a great atmosphere with really good food. I would recommend going there if visiting koh tao.

I spent a few months on Koh Tao so visited a few times with friends. Reef isn't the biggest venue and can get cramped, often leading to sharing tables with other diners. In many places this might be an issue, but not in Reef. The customers are chilled, there for good food, relaxed ,eclectic mix in music and to watch... More
