Another tip from an Australian friend also living here in phuket. Wow the frozen margaritas were divine. Great afternoon with the girls. Ordered the nachos with chicken , huge serving and delicious. Heading back next week with the girls, family friendly.

“Fantastic Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

The first time we came here in late 2013 the food was so-so. The service is the usual thai service, i.e the bare minimum, but at least they bring the starters out before the main.
However recently the chef has really upped his game. The food is spicier and tastier, a far more mexican experience.
The mexican food here really is delicious, guacamole is nice and fresh, the nachos are cooked fresh, no doritos out of a bag like in most of Thailand, the salsa is fresh and utterly delicious, its got just enough spice, and the portions are well sized.
One of the best places to eat in Phuket, certainly the best mexican food in Phuket (we've tried all of them) and it usually comes to around 6-700 baht for 2 of us with a starter to share and drinks so not overly expensive but not cheap either.
Absolutely delicious food, whatever they changed recently keep doing it!!

“We had the chance to dance Salsa and Bachata after meal.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

Food was very good. I was surprised about the food taste, it was very good. The staf were super friendly. They even let me put my ipod and play reggaeton, salsa, bachata, and merengue. We were dancing with some great friends I met in Thailand. I even had the chance to meet the co-owner Jeff. I definitely recommend this location!

“OK if you fancy a change from Thai food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

Made the mistake of walking here from Chalong for lunch one day. In an effort to disguise the main road location, the extensive planting creates a very dark and dismal atmosphere that is alive with mozzies and other bugs even during the height of the day. The food was OK and made a change from Thai but was much more expensive than the 75 baht we were used to paying for a curry or stir fry. Don't think I'd bother going back.
