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?).

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

Amazing Mexican food in Thailand! The Chicago sin fries are amazing. Will definitely return if we visit again. Just wear mosquito repellant as the seating is outdoors.

We visited Ando Loco while in Ko Phangan because we really wanted some Mexican food. When we arrived the restaurant had a nice atmosphere and there were plenty of seats since we were the only ones at the time. Drinks were tasty although I would have liked the Mojito to be filter before being poured in the drink but that... More

Last month was my second trip to Koh Phangan and I had the pleasure of dining at Ando Loco in Thong Sala. First off, I got to meet Ando, a really gracious host from Chicago. Within a few minutes of meeting Ando, it is clear he is serious about providing fresh and tasty Mexican cuisine. My first experience was during... More

Thank you Bart for your kind words. It was a pleasure having you in at the bar and chiming in on our tales of the land of smiles over a few jumbo margaritas. We look forward to your returning to Phangan for your next killer tattoo and hopefully a margarita or two... Ando More

The food here is really good - I kept coming back (luckily you can eat quite cheap here or splash out). I tried quite a few different dishes, the Tequila Lime Shrimp was SO tasty, also loved the Fish Tacos (the fish melts in your mouth - they seem to be a bit of an institution on the island) and...
