We never get a complaint about the burger, except sometimes people say it's too big, but it's great. Thanks for visiting us twice. We obviously made the right impression.

Hi can you just come for drinks / cocktails or do you need to eat as well? I'm currently in Patong and looking for a nice place to see the sunset on my last night which is Friday. Any idea of the cost of the cocktails and beers?
