Surprised to have a decent burger on a tiny island. Much better food than other islands we’ve been on. Nice small batch beers my Thai barman friend from last year recognised from a photo and was impressed we found! Fries were total rubbish. Cheap oily...More

If you are craving Western food after experiencing the taste of Thailand, then look no further. The burgers are huge, well seasoned and tasty as hell! Be prepared to walk away in a food coma! 😃

Burger was great. No questions there. 3 waiters standing.. No refill offering, slow movement. But the main thing are the burgers and they are delicious.

Hippo is out on the main drag. The place is set up with its own flair. Burger and chicken sandwich were both good.

The burger and chips are great here. Eating thai for 3 weeks straight is great but it's sometimes nice to have a change. Can't fault this place. Great service, really good burgers I'd certainly eat here again for lunch.

I honestly don‘t understand why they have so many positive ratings here on tripadvisor. One afternoon, I was the only guest and I ordered take away. It took them 45 min (!!) to get my order done! This is too long for a simple order....More

We loved our burgers here. Nice chunk of meat patties, crispy bacon which I love. Was my favorite burger I had in all of Asia so far.

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.
