they were quick with serving the food, the food was amazing and the service was good. Good prices. This mexican resturant is hidden in fisherman's village at bo phut beach. Just walk down the street until you see a black sign with red letters written "mexican"

We shared a small nacos, appreciating that in Thailand diary is not big on their diet and therefore the cheese may be limited. It was good, if a little "smashed" in appearance so far as the tortillas chips were concerned. We... More
