I got the dirty hairy burger, and it was just alright. After reading all the reviews, I really had my hopes up, but for the price of the burger and fries it was just regular. The portion size is definitely large. I was able to make two small meals out of the burger.

This place truly sticks out in Koh Tao! Amazing burgers (big portions) and friendly and fun staff! The places looks amazing too and we enjoyed both eating and being there and it was a novelty skipping Thai food just for once too!

I had the 'fillet steak' but the taste was only so so, not much flavour. The garlic butter was good though.

Huge burgers that taste amazing!! If you go between 4 and 6 you also get a free shake. Staff are a little slow but could of just been a busy night. Prices from 180bht to 300bht.

This was one of the best burgers I've ever had- nevermind that it is in Thailand! The aesthetic of the restaurant is also fantastic. You should absolutely eat here!

I could have ordered the whole menu if I had the stomach (and the money) as it all sounded so good! However we did have a burger which was very large, we got it with sweet potato fries which were amazing (as we haven't had them in so long!) and an Oreo shake. Prices were fairly reasonable for what you... More
