This place was great. The veggie burger is delicious and the side salad was tasty. The beef ranch burger was delectable. The vibe is simple but nice.

If you like burgers, this is your place! The burgers are big, tasty and leave you fully satisfied. I also tried the duck salad one night which was just as delicious!

It always makes me happy to find a good veggie burger! The bun was super fresh and the fries were also delicious!

The portions sizes are big! I had BBQ ranch burger with chips, it was good but a bit spicy. The snickers milkshake was amazing as well. It was worth paying for this meal even though it is way more expensive than your average meal!

The first time I went, I had the ribs and the portion was huge!! The second time I had a burger and again it was very good and reasonably priced.

Finally found some decent burgers while travelling Thailand! It's not particularly cheap in comparison with other western restaurants on the island but the burgers are huge and taste great. I think a classic burger started at something like 230 THB.

The burgers here were amazing, fresh beef/pork/chicken and you can tell the burgers were freshly made. I was far from disappointed when I tried their bacon cheeseburger. Oh and let's not forget their Cajun style fries! Amazing!
