The Tacos were amazing everything was really fresh and kept nice and simple, would definitely recommend if you're passing by and fancy a wee change... More

I just ate the best steak and mushroom enchiladas at a restaurant in Thailand. Go figure. Thanks to Julie (a seasoned traveler of Koh Phangan) she filled me in on this gem - Ando Loco. Mexican was the perfect break from Thai food on a long backpacking trip through Thailand. Food was outstanding (better than anything in Canada) and the... More

Food was fast, hot, big and tasty. Didnt expect to find a decent Mexican restaurant is Thailand but this is a little gem! Ando is hands on and the staff are welcoming. Right on the main road in Thong Sala this place is well worth a visit. We went back 2 nights in a row!!

What a great surprise this restaurant was - who would have expected to find a quality Mexican restaurant in Thailand? It's perfect for a Thai-food break (which is welcomed after 3 weeks!). Everything was fresh and delicious, but the Margarita that was a little far away from what a Margarita should be. Finish the night with a little bit of... More

Ando Locos does excellent mexican food. The boo-ya buffalo wings starter, chigago sin fries and chimichanga dinners are the best!

I love Mexican food but other than in Mexico and the US it is really hard to find a good place. Ando's is owned by and American who has a lot of experience with Mexican food, so he has done a really great job with the menu! I can recommend the chimichanga meal, One of the burrito meals, the veggie... More

This place is a bit expensive, but the fish tacos are a must. You can get 3/200baht, or 70 each. They are huge, so much so that it is hard to fold them. The quality of the food is surprisingly good for Mexican located in Thailand.

The food is of a high quality and the jumbo Margerita are a delight. I have been here on quite a few occasions and have not had any complaint regarding the food or the service. Very good value. Recommended
