I wanted to have a good burger after weeks of phad thai and visited the Hippo because of the good rating here in tripadvisor. I had a largest burger (Hungry hippo) for 300 baht and it was gigantic! And it wasn't quantity over quality as the burger was the second best burger I've ever tasted. The fries were also pretty... More

We came here in the evening for some food after being initially tempted in by the menu outside. Service was great. I had a pina colada to drink which was frozen and tasted amazing. I also had a cheese and bacon burger which was insane! My partner had the Thai chicken burger which he also raved about. Couldn't recommend this... More

This was one of the best burgers I had ever had. It was a decent size. It was so juicy and flavorful! The bun was super good. They used like a pasta sauce on top of the burger that I found to be really tasty. The fries were awesome as well. Great trendy spot to get some dinner.

We went here wanting some big burgers and we're worried they might be small portions as we were pretty hungover. And WOW! They were bigger than ones from back home. We ended up going there 3 times cause we loved it so much. The Cajun chicken burger was amazing, i also had the bacon cheese and added the pulled pork... More

As a backpacker, one meal here costs me as much as 3/4 of my daily budget. Yet I keep going back. The burgers are really very good. Especially with all the add on options (the pulled pork one is very nice!) The portions are pretty big - one day we woke up around lunchtime and came straight here, and I... More

The prices are a little higher than average. However, they have great burgers. The location is central and the staff is friendly
