“Great cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

A great bar with a fantastic atmosphere, friendly staff and fantastic cocktails. There was live music every night, with everyone being encouraged to have a dance. They do some good value food too.

“Brilliant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This place is wicked... they have 'Happy hour' every hour of every day so cocktails are only 99 baht each (about a pound!). They are sooooo nice as well!

Food is also brilliant but the best thing about this bar is the band called Jesus lol... what legends! Staff are amazing, go here!

“Nice change but not great ...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

Was a nice change from Thai food, but wouldn't rush back ...
Food was pretty average and service not great !!
Went with young kids and not really suitable !
As mentioned in other reviews, they use a squirt on "cheese" sauce which tastes very artificial and just does not work.
Waiters and kitchen communication needs work!
Prices don't match quality and with a bit of tweaking this place could turn from a cheap tequila Friday type spot to a good Mexican restaurant...
Hope owner reads reviews and good luck

“It is what it is!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

It's a tex mex place, run by a Australian guy(very nice) in Thailand. You can't really expect a lot from the food. It's the typical westernized boring food, with nothing extra. The buffalo wings were good enough, but the tacos were very boring. They have an offer everyday, but I wouldn't go back. The live music was good for being ao nang tho.

“Not if you've had real Mexican...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Went there with family tonight after strolling through the shops. Although the menu is enticing the food was really pretty poor. The nachos were lacking in cheese and what was there was so broiled on that that chips broke when trying to eat them. The "blue wings" were also pretty lousy - some sweet BBQ sauce rather than Frank's...and they are not Mexican. Kids had enchiladas and quesadillas. Both were underwhelming.

Band was good and it was probably a fun place if you had a good buzz on and didn't really care about the food. WIth a Diet Coke it was sorely lacking...
