Hippo is a midrange, hipster-style burger joint with a great atmosphere in the centre of town. Tables for all group sizes can be accommodated and most of the seating is set out in the garden courtyard providing a relaxed dining environment. One of Koh Tao’s funkier eating spaces, the walls are adorned with modern art with a hippo themed twist.
For those who don’t want to eat on-site, Hippo Burger Bistro offers delivery and take away services, although do note that some menu items are not available on these options due to the restaurant’s environmental policies. Hippo’s environmental considerations include not using plastic bags or plastic straws, not providing single-use plastic cutlery, and ensuring all containers are 100% biodegradable.
With eighteen different burgers to choose from, diners will not be disappointed with the range of options. From classic beef burgers to chicken, pulled pork, and vegetarian options, there is something to suit every taste. The beef patties are succulent, and the chicken and pork options are tender and well flavoured.
If it turns out you’re not in the mood for a burger, there is also a selection of pasta, salads, and mains. There is also a good variety of sides and appetisers including fries, sweet potato fries, buffalo wings, and garlic bread.
Choose from shakes, fruit juices, soft drinks, beers, craft beers, and cider. The house special ‘Hippo Shakes’ are blended with ice cream and come highly recommended. There are cocktail happy hours between 4pm and 7pm daily, with selected drinks for just 100THB.
