“We loved the place... great food and a subliem family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

A very small place... but the best place to get a beer, a burger or fish and chips. A lovely family to get the picture complete. We loved the place and will be back soon.

“Great burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

I've only tried the burgers (cheeseburger and the tex mex), but they are great. Good beef and great buns. The best burger I've had in all my travels in Asia.

The place could be nicer, a bit cramped between to other restaurants.

But the food is very tasty, and the owner really nice.

hi, thanks for your kind review and for visitibg us at kokos on the beach.

we are glad you enjoyed your burgers, we make the bread twice a day(some times 3) and grind our beef fresh daily to ensure 100% freshness.
all our ingredients are sourced locally every day to make sure we deliver great fresh food daily.

unfortunately due to the monsoon season and the general sea erosion we are forced into a small space, we are however hopeful that we will gain some extra beach in the near future.

thanks again for visiting us and hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.
thanks and blessings

“Chill out with great casual food - awesome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

A great little place to chill out, day or night. We arrived at lunchtime the first to arrive, and received a friendly welcome from Gary, a chatty soul who sorted us out with a drink. We ordered the burger and the fish and chips.
The fish and chips is truly excellent. Moist fish and crispy batter, and chips that taste like chips. The burger was huge, and I liked the fact that it was proper bread, nice salad, cheese and onions. The beef was a little bit of a triumph of quantity over quality however; the meat was heavily spiced which left little room for a beef taste – the meat was tough too. It was good, but far from the best burger available. Still extremely good value, but a better quality beef that relied on the taste of the beef rather than seasoning and sauce would be more my preference.
The view is perfect – right on the beach, and the atmosphere is laid back and friendly. It was very easy to chill here for a couple of hours.
Bottom line – big burgers, extremely good value, and a faultless fish and chips
