Description: Located in the heart of Haad Yao opposite 7/11, CRAVE attracts a crowd of holiday makers, locals, expats and long termers every nights. The open air comfy lounge and the friendly staff make you feel at home from your very first visit. The menu is simple and focused around gourmet burgers (beef, chicken or homemade veggie patty). For the meat lovers they also have other sandwiches, chicken wings, BBQ ribs and more. All the sandwiches and burgers are served with their awesome hand cut french fries and homemade mayonnaise. The chefs from CRAVE prepare delicious salads, homemade hummus and tasty appetizers. Their famous French-Canadian "poutine" is also definitely worth the detour! They also offer a wide variety of special homemade drinks and cocktails such as the marinated rums, sangria, ice tea and pink lemonade. And not to mention all homemade desserts! Kitchen open from 5pm to 11pm. FREE pool table, WIFI and games available. Closed every TUESDAYS

“Haad Yao, hard to beat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Spent many years in this location , and this bar restaurant is just on the main road opposite many entrances to the famous beach.
The food is expat and great, the burger you will love, and the drink well priced.
The owner is lovely wee woman, and the barman is second to none, a mixes a mean cocktai.
Great music to, in a relaxed atmosphere, a must if your staying in Haad Yao or close by.
Pete.

“Top notch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Great food, as long as you enjoy burgers and salads with unique touches. Quality, free pool table and homemade sangria sealed the deal.

“Our favourite food in Thailand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

4 hungry Irish people are sometimes hard to please but we loved crave soo much we went back the next day and had the exact same food again! It's hard to get a good juicy burger, onion rings, BBQ sauce, cheese and great fries anywhere else but we all fell in love! We are just sad there isn't any more chains in koh samui too! Thank you for such amazing food, cocktails and the desserts were fabulous too! Recommend the CRAVE burger, with cheddar, and FAT BETTY burger....

The only negative was the dogs going crazy outside! But the food made up for that!

Glad you loved our food so much you had to have it twice!!!! You'll have to enjoy it on Koh Phangan since we have no plans to start up a chain on Koh Samui. It would not be the same!!!! As for the dogs in Thailand, they are a bit FREE SPIRITED and not so easy to control :) especially around Full Moon period! Thanks for your review. Hope to see you again on your next trip around here.

“Fab burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

I haven't tried all the other burgers in KP but I suspect these are the best. Very tasty with super chips. Relaxed vibe, with games for the kids to play at the table. If you fancy western food for one evening this would be a good choice.

Off the main road. No sea view here, consequently missing the sea breeze. I guess you cant have everything !

Thank you for your good mention about the french fries! We are proud to provide fresh and tasty potatos with our burgers! As you said, the games available for our guest is a plus value!
