Hippo is out on the main drag. The place is set up with its own flair. Burger and chicken sandwich were both good.

The burger and chips are great here. Eating thai for 3 weeks straight is great but it's sometimes nice to have a change. Can't fault this place. Great service, really good burgers I'd certainly eat here again for lunch.

I honestly don‘t understand why they have so many positive ratings here on tripadvisor. One afternoon, I was the only guest and I ordered take away. It took them 45 min (!!) to get my order done! This is too long for a simple order....More

The burgers cane quick and tasted awesome but the fries are nothing special to rave about. It's a pretty average prices menu for Koh Tao.

The burgers are delicious, and chips are great, some yummy shakes as well. We go here for occasional dinners for someone's farewell or birthday, we would go a lot more but it's too pricy for backpackers to go on the regular. Other than price it...More

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.
