We visited hippo bar and grill twice during our stay on Koh Tao. The burgers were absolutely delicious and the portions were very generous. Not the cheapest option on the island, but the quality is definitely great.

I've not found a better burger in the whole of Thailand... :) Lamb burger is to die for. Proper, home-made chips! Rocket salad with quality beef was great. Free pool table and wifi We will definitely go back next time when we come to Koh Tao.

We had chicken fingers and chicken fajita. The meal was way to spicy and the chicken fingers way to dry. It was ok but I have found better food on the island.

Definitely a must try! I ordered the classic burger and sweet potato fries and they did not disappoint. Food portions are quite generous so go with an empty belly.

Did not eat in the restaurant itself but we did order take-aways. The food was excellent! Chicken fajitas, fish and chips, asparagus and chicken pasta to name a few of the dishes we had. Delicious cajun fries and amazing burgers. They are the best!

Great spot for that day when you just feel like a burger. Wide range of options to choose from plus a lot of great sounding alternatives if your not a burger fan. Would definitely go back to try something else on the menu.

Ordered one burger and was not told there was any sort of wait on food. 20 mins after us, a table of 4 came in an got four meals before us, and had finished before anyone had even came over to say sorry about the wait. I asked a member of staff to check how long it would be, who... More
