Hippo Burgers is at the north end of Sairee Beach located on the main road. The restaurant is clean with nice décor. The burgers are large and tasty. I only just managed to finish the Dirty Harry and chips. I was a bit pricey at 250 baht plus another 100 for a beer. But if your hungry its good

This place served us the best burgers we have ever had! Especially the cajun chicken burger. And you got to test the sweet potato fries. A Burger heaven and The staff is really friendly as well.

Yesterday, I went to Hippo and asked to take away one burger, one pasta and one shake. At one point, I saw the waiter with a plastic bag in his hand and thought my order was done. But the waiter returned to the kitchen. I waited more 20 minutes and thought other person would also asked to take away, but... More

I came here without any expectations. A greasy burger is as far from the Thai kitchen as it gets. The place is pretty nice and located just by the main road getting in to sairee. The service level from the staff was almost non existing and the food took a long time. I think we waited for at least 40min.... More

Went for a burger here and the food was really good, although the burger meat could have been fried a bit less as it was a bit dry. The atmosphere in the actual bar looked very nice – we sat outside though where the plastic chairs and the wax table cloth kills the atmosphere.

Several people told me to eat here so i checked it out, i wasn't impressed. Nothing was really wrong, but nothing was really good. The service was slow and the food was mediocre at best. The prices are high enough that there are lots of other GOOD places that i would go before going back here. The location is right... More
