I truly hate this place. I have lived in Koh Tao for 2.5 years and every once in a while I try this restaurant and always leave angry enough to write this review like this. This time I did write it. The service is terrible....More

We don't understand why this customer would say any harm would come to them for any reason! What a strange thing to say! it's a burger restaurant! The owners are kind, long-term islanders who appreciate all customers. We apologise for any bad service especially when...More

Look it's not bad just don't get your hopes up. They do what they can with the produce they source. The buns tends to get soggy half way through and the chips are only good when you drown them in sauce.

We had two Burgers and they were both very yummi. The pulled pork burger was very juicy, the bun is nice and the portions are huge.

In our short stay we ate at Hippo Bar & Grill twice! A BBQ Ranch Burger was perfect after a day of diving. And the happy hour mojitos made an amazing day even better. Definitely worth a visit.

Hippo is a friendly burger joint, popular with local ex-pats and tourists. Before the Hippo Bar and Grill now it's changed to Hippo Burger Bistro after a renovation and Menu change. We specialise in big burgers made with love and meat from well treated animals but have many dishes from salads to pasta. good music, pool table and outdoor dining. Great milkshakes and Mojitos too.
