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

I think this is an average mex restaurant. Very tasty nachos, good chicken fajitas, poor chicken enchilladas. Price was globally honest, about 800 baht for 3 dishes and 2 small beers. I would overall suggest this place.

I was here early July for dinner with my bf and it wasn't as good as what my bf have thought: I had chimichanga and wasn't as great as when I had it in Jakarta for somewhat the same price, and there wasn't much cheese on this one than what I had in Jakarta (why so stingy on cheese?). Portion... More

I had been to this restaurant in mid-2013 whilst backpacking at the start of my tripm and had fond memories of it, so was keen to return a year later, this time with my girlfriend in tow. The décor hadn't changed much, nor had the menu from what I remembered, obviously the owners had seen to have found a winning... More

Ate here tonight based on the great reviews. There was one other table in the restaurant, and we sat down and ordered some food. It was all edible, but to be frank, it was boring, bland and missing a bit of TLC. The service was just poor. Young girl with blonde hair just sat on the seat beside us and... More

We came here numerous times during our honeymoon and for good reason. The food was spot on EVERYTIME, which is something of a feat in Thailand! My hubby is such a fussy Eater (hates gristle or chewy bits) and he loved his food. High quality ingredients, overly large portions and all cooked to perfection. The service was fantastic, even when... More
