Mexican food has always been my favorite so I like to try it wherever I go. I won't say this place was mindblowingly good by any means but much better than you would expect. The tacos are more like mini burritos. They wrap the soft tacos like burritos and fill them with rice and some beans. Overall very filling and... More

Went to Thai Taco today. Greeted warmly but once sat down the smile turned into a frown. Smile only reserved for getting customers in. Ordered the Mexican food. It was ok but quite oily. Price was reasonable just not memorable.

From the moment you get there you are greeted with smiles. The service is quick and the food is absolutely delicious! We ordered the flour tacos-chicken, pork and shrimp. You get a very generous serve for what you pay and would highly recommend this restaurant! We will definitely be eating here again on our return to thailand. Muchos delicious!

I'm a fan of tacos and rank this restaurant top 2, maybe best overall, of tacos I've had worldwide. I had the corn tortilla shrimp, chicken and pork (sadly they were out of the fish each time I visited). Tacos were bursting with flavor, not too heavy, and a good serving of food (2 satisfied me and I eat a... More

Some of the best, freshest, and affordable thai food in the area. Their red curry was great and their pad thai was fantastic. I also had their fish taco...fish tasted fresh, but taco wasn't anything to write home (Texas) about, but I never have high expectations for TexMex outside of S. Texas. Since their thai food was so good I... More

If you're used to swedish tacos you'll be expecting more, but for Thailand this is great. Friendly staff and we got the food quickly. A bit over priced but there will be no holes in your wallet.

Had the two beef tacos and pork quesadilla with a side of guacamole and a beer. Good quick service. Good food at a reasonable price. Recommended. Would eat here again.

We came here on recommendation of other tripadvisor reviews and we're not disappointed, Freshly prepared food made to order in front your eyes, very clean and friendly and free wifi. Would definitely recommend if you want a break from Thai food

We fancied a change from all the Thai food we have been eating & came across this little restaurant. Not big at all but food is really delish. We ordered some tortilla chips with salsa, chicken quesadilla & beef crispy shell tacos which were fab. We then ordered some pork & beef quesadilla with an order of chicken soft flour... More

I tried Pad Thai for (80-100 Baht), spring rolls/fried shrimp (80 baht), and singha draft beer (60 baht). Tasty food, not crowded at all, and u see locals strolling in to order takeouts - thats gotta be a ringing endorsement of the quality and pricing of the food :) Highly recommended above the establishments by the beach. This place doesn't... More
