After some nagging from the kids we decide to deviate from our favourite Thai restaurant and let them have a burger. The place is very popular but they managed to squeeze us in. The menu is comprehensive. We went for fajitas, a Dirty Harry burger and spaghetti Bolognese; all were good. The place had a mixture of Thai staff and... More

First time we sat eating our burger and looking out at the road, a bike pulled up and 2 waiters greeted the man did a quick drug deal and placed the packet in his apron! We got the bill (710 thb), paid... More

If you like a good burger, than you should visit hippoburger. Great service and even better food. Not too expensive and close to sairee beach, just behind it on the 'main' road.

Went here reading reviews about how amazing the Zinger burger was, it was nice, definitely tasty but not as great as we were hoping. It was hard to get the staff's attention even though the place was mostly empty. The toilets were horrible! Really dirty, cobwebs everywhere.

One of my very best burgers ever ate. We ate here twice until now, might be coming back though :) Writing stuff so I can get to 100 characters! Nothing else to say.

Amazing burgers!! The restaurant is a bit hipster but the food is so worth it! The onion rings are also a must!

... for a very reasonable price. Tried two of them (BBQ and something similar) and was pleased with both. They are big and if u add the fries, the usual guy should be more than satisfied. They even offer their food for delivery if don't feel like eating out. Definitely worth a visit!

We had 2 times burger delivered to Koh Tao Heights villa. Every time very easy and super friendly staff. Delivery came after around 30 minutes, burgers and the fries (try sweet potato fries!) were freshly made and still hot like you if were getting them served in the restaurant! Burger and the buns (wonder if they make them themselves) tasted... More

Two men walk in to a burger bar. One ordered a caprese - beef patty, soft mozzarella cheese, sun dried tomatoes and fresh pesto. The other ordered a questionable pulled pork sany. A little too red oniony for his liking. But nevertheless he seemed to leave content. A thoroughly good bar with prices in the kid to high end at... More

Food was as good as any burger I've had at home. The only let down was the service, but in terms of a good feeding i'd highly recommend it.
