Same-Same Burger House – The Empire expands on the Island of Koh Phangan

Following the successful launch of the Same-Same Guesthouse Koh Phangan in March 2004 and the Same-Same Thai Cooking school in 2006 the Same-Same Empire further expands by opening the Koh Phangan Same-Same Burger House in June 2008.

After recent anonymous comments on Koh Phangan Island News web site stating that Same-Same burgers make you sick or just give you the shit, Koh Phangan Island News headquarters finally decided to sent down their team of investigative reporters lead by Senior Food Specialist Fred van den IamLonelyLookingForHotChicksPleaseDial0811466981

The Koh Phangan Same-Same Burger House offers a variety of different burgers and burger menus like classic burger, cheeseburger, double cheese burger, supreme cheese burger and one so called X-Treme bacon and cheese burger. If you prefer chicken or pork there is also the option of a supreme chicken or pork burger.

All burgers are also available as ‘menu’ which gives you some extra french fries plus a drink of your choice. Additionally there’s the Shawarma pida bread with marinated and grilled beef garnished with iceberg salad, tomatoes, onions and toped up with some homemade yoghurt dressing.

Koh Phangan Same-Same Burger House prices start as low as 180 THB for a classic beef burger and for the more fanatic junk food addict there’s always the option of the X-Treme bacon and cheese burger starship including all the bells and whistles for a very affordable 420 THB only.

Our Koh Phangan Island News team of investigative douche bags led by Senior Food Specialist Fred van den HiChicksStillLonelyPleaseDial0811466981 decided to go for the double cheeseburger menu and received quite a pleasant burger experience. The cheeseburger itself was excellent, tasty and very well done. Though the liberty fries were unfortunately totally over salted and should be looked after. Furthermore missing was the ice for the drinks as things tend to warm up quickly in the tropics. And there’s nothing more unpleasant than a 30 degree warm coke, isn’t it?

However … our friendly hosts and general managers from the Same-Same Burger House, Soeren and Jacob, then guided us through the Same-Same Burger House premises and Koh Phangan Island News headquarters could easily convince themselves that all standards of hygiene, food preparation and storage were successfully met. Storage and preparation facilities, restaurant, kitchen and equipment were flawlessly clean and looked after so really nothing negative to report here.

Apart from the salty liberty fries and the warm coke Same-Same Burger House still deserves two thumbs up and is definitely worth a visit should you fancy a real 100% beef burger. The earlier mentioned comments by anonymous competitors that Same-Same burgers simply give you the shit cannot be reconfirmed by Island News headquarters and should therefore be seen as pure island gossip almost certainly created by greedy and unsuccessful business competitors from the Hadrin community.

The Koh Phangan Same-Same Burger House is located at the sunset side of Hadrin Beach close to the pier to Koh Samui and is open every day until 5 a.m. and during the infamous Full Moon Party Night 24 hours.

Among travelers appointed as the best burger is Asia – You better give it a try and decide for yourself 😉

      Hi,
      Loving the pictures of the work permits, touch of class that 🙂 haaaa PATIHAN

      As for prices… does seem expensive, but I remember buying cheddar cheese on the island before, if your thousands of miles from Europe and want a taste of home….the price is probably ok’ish!

      That’s very pricey even on western standards… I wiish them luck and I’m sure the burgers must be good. I didn’nt realize that Koh Phangan was dealing with such up scale tourists now?

      Well … quite easy! i never said drinks and liberty fries were shit … just over salted fries and warm coke cause of missing ice. but that’s easily fixable and therefore the thumbs up. compared to other places in hadrin i would even give it a 3 thumbs up 😉

      yes … Becki is critical and you can be assured that i didn’t receive any money at all for this article! the so called ‘payment’ was done by a FREE burger menu and so what? I should be ashamed of that? you’re kidding 😉

      I think you better take a look in the mirror and start appreciating the nice little service I freely provide for you guys out there … enjoy 😉

And don’t forget the good old traditional puddings, apple crumble or bread & butter pudding, mmmmmm, super, just like mum used to make. Thanks John.

          The point is people are free to choose. I eat 90% Thai food when I’m there because I prefer it and I agree it is better suited to the climate but the comment ‘Hopefully you will all die of blood pressure’ is in very poor taste. I’ll add that the ‘you’ this person is talking about represents their bread & butter (excuse the pun).

              Now you know just how expensive 420 baht really is. If you have Brits complaining about the prices then it has to be over the top. The UK is one of the most expensive places on the planet. Thailand used to be an inexpensive place to visit.

                At our local pub in Canada we can get two massive bugers with bacon and cheese on a real whole wheat bun. With two big portions of chip or salad and two pints of lager for about 450baht! The burgers are 100% ground sirlion steak! 🙂

      Dear everyone.

      Thanks for all the response on Becki’s article about our Burger House in Haad Rin.
      We are happy and surprised to see how much debate a small new business like this can start. Thanks for all your comments.

      Before we opened the Burger House our goal was to make something different and new to Haad Rin.
      We got the idea of opening a high quality fast food restaurant according to western standards and long opening hours.
      In the beginning we tried to support the local food suppliers, but quickly found out, that the Island is still not ready to provide us with the standards and quality required by the Burger House.
      Thats why we now is purchasing all our products on Samui Island, including meats, cheese and burger buns.

      Becki hasnt recieved any bribes to write this article. Becki asked us if he could do an article about our new business, the Burger House.
      We agreed and served him a free Cheese Burger menu.

      There is a few things, that we would like to clarify:

      1. Many of the comments are focused on our biggest burger, “The Extreme”. The cost of an Extreme burger menu with fries and soft drink is 420 baht. Its not only for the burger. Yes, its quite a lot for a burger, but its probably the biggest on the Island with 300 gr. of pure beef, triple cheese and triple bacon. This burger is meant to be the macho meal, and is normally ordered by big guys, who knows what a tasty BIG fast food burger should taste like.

      2. Our burger prices doesnt start at 180 baht. Thats for a menu with Fries and soft drink.
      Our regular beef burger can be purchased for 110 baht.

      We totally agree, that local food is nice and tasty. There are plenty of good restaurants on this Island with Johns Bar and Bistro in the high end.
      For cheap burgers we refer to The Eagle Bar in Haad Yao, mentioned in one of the previous comments.

      Thanks to all of you guys, that has been supporting our product.
      And Thanks to everyone for welcomming our new business with this massive respons.

      We are a new business and we are more than happy to listen to positive critism, which can help us to provide a better experience for our customers.

      Best regards and looking forward to welcome you in our new establishment.

      SAME SAME BURGER AND SHAWARMA HOUSE

        Okay so its a big burger granted but even with triple bacon and cheese this still seems pricey by western standards the gourmet burger resturants cropping up all over london(and rest of the uk to an extent) are not charging that much more than this for the same! they also have much higher running costs(staff,buisness rates etc) and are using british beef(some of the best in the world)! And i think the main reason for the hostility on here is that a lot of people who go to phangan actually despise our western/fast food/throw away society and are glad to get away from it wether it be long term or on holiday! Although this is haad riin were talking about, a place where im often ashamed to be british so i am sure buisness will be booming and it sure beats macdonalds;)
        I read a previous thread that mentioned burger king in haad riin anyone know if this is true? dan

    I think the price is okay – its time for a change. Koh Phangan needs to get rid of all you skanky tight- ass backpackers who live off pot noodles from the 7/11 and put no money into the island. This burger place is the new generation for Phangan starting to provide quality service and quality food at maybe a slightly higher price, but hey, I don’t mind paying for quality especially when there are so many TURGID restaurants (both Thai and Foreign) on Koh Phangan … and especially in Haadrin! Keep the prices and quality up!

      Im in support of the prices & quality being high instead of this shit were getting from most restaurents on the island!! I read the postings a few months back about the newTesco opening and poor Big A and Limpipong supermarkets not being able to compete and how sad it was for these two wonderful businesses (who had been ripping off islanders for years with high prices). Well i had to laugh when I read the postings about Same Same Burger – because those same people (you know who you are!)posting those Pro- Big A and Limpipong comments on this website are now saying Quality food at Same Same Burger is too expensive!! Haha! Well, its monsoon now so why not stop complaining about businesses on the island and start complaining about the weather!! Becki, youve got some really sad fuckers making these postings … what do they do all day … think what they can complain about next … what a bunch of fucking losers!!! Smoke your spliff, drink your Chang and now go and moan about this posting…ha!

      I cant believe you have said that phangan needs to get rid of the backpackers!!! i guess you are the owner of this over priced stingy portioned shit hole!! back packers are what made the island and they will continue to pay for everyone on the island. The burgers look average and for the price we can all go to and get a burger and chips elsewhere on the island that is better for less than half the price!! get real, grow up and get off the island if you dont like it!!
