Description: 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.

My wife commented that the musician who was playing the night we visited sounded like a buffalo giving birth, I wouldn't know about that but the steaks that were served up could of been buffalo.
The meal was ruined by the Cajun fries which tasted like they had been rescued from the garbage can and weren't fit for human consumption, we were both sick later. Have ate here in the past and have been more than satisfied but after this visit won't be going back. Worst meal in Koh Tao in over 20 years of visiting the island.

Nice ambience sitting out the front of the restaurant. We ordered steaks and were blown away by the flavour. The steaks were perfectly cooked and made us want more! The fries were very good. We had to wait a while for our chocolate brownie but the waiter did apologise. Another top evening meal in awesome koh tao. Recommended!

We only tried the currys and some starters and they were all delicious. The portions were a bit smaller and pricier than at other restaurants on the island (one needs two portions of rice for a curry), but worth it. Their delivery service is great, though!

The Thai food here was delicious and the service super friendly (like everyone in Koh Tao). The prices were reasonable and the seating outside. All enjoyed. They have many dogs there as well, but they don't beg for food. So, it adds to the laid back atmosphere. Oh, and you can see the kitchen! Watch them cook!

Ordered a take away duck salad and fajita... Unbelievable quality and fresh ingredients with such good flavours! Reason to stay Koh Tao for a few extra nights... Super impressed
