I visited here after doing 2 dives, so I was very hungry. The weather was poor and I felt in the mood for a good greasy burger. Fishys didn't disappoint. They have a varied menu but I picked a cheese and bacon burger with fries and a no name tea (good for a cold they said)

It came in a timely manner like good fast food shops should and tasted like a decent burger in my opinion. Western food can be more pricey in Thailand, but here I thought the value was there.

It is open 24 hours a day, which I believe is a rare thing. I haven't seen that anywhere else on the island.

So over all service good, food good and availability good. I recommend this burger joint for a cheap snack when you want a break from Thai food... A.

Really, you can only eat here when you're drunk - which is what most people do because it's 24 hours - went there in the day and had the chicken burger - a frozen processed patty that didn't look or taste anything like chicken and some non-fresh french fries on the side. Very disappointing

This is a rare gem of a place where you can find the perfect blend of everything that is good on Koh Tao - 24 hours a day.
The Food
Fishy's serves a wide variety of dishes. There is an open kitchen delivering delicious Thai dishes and American burgers (the best in Thailand) and Sasha the chief can prepare you fresh fish, caught in local waters by local fishermen. Sasha also makes the best pizzas you can find in Thailand. Please try one, even if this is not whet you would expect to find in Asia.
The bar
The bar attracts locals, divers and people on holiday which makes it an interesting place to hang out and meet people. You'll find a variety of drinks from cocktails, jugs of Margaritas, Thai beers, cider and spirits from all over the world.
The atmosphere
Fishy's can be very laid-back and relaxed, making it a cool place to chat, eat and drink. However, when there is a party, like the monthly Margarita Monday, Fishy's is the place to be on the island and everyone in the know, congregates from mid afternoon to the early hours of the morning to make merry with colourful jugs of Margarita.

Go and see for yourself ... you won't be disappointed

In Fishy's Burger Island we ate probably the best pizza from whole asia. It was a Pizza like in a Restaurant in Italy. Also the Burgers and the Thai Food where very good. Everything was homemade and the Restaurant is open for 24 hours.
