“Quality Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

A nice change from Thai food. This Mexican was suprisingly good and quite authentic. Good selection of Mexican favorites and reasonable priced drinks.

“The best mexican food on island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

Hi. Food is excellent. Big portion and very tasty. Worth to try beef tacos, sweet potatoes fries , and much more. Staff very nice and friendly. The best margarita on the island and you can make it jumbo margarita for 50 bat extra. Good experience to try this restaurant and I would recommend to anyone staying on the island and wan't to eat sth different then Thai food.

“It was OK...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

The food must be a hit and miss as I had different dishes on the three times I went there and not all of them was good but most were OK. The service was done in a rushed annoying manner and the order is taken without a smile. for two times I have there. The other time the service was good and enjoyable. So if you have a craving for mexican it might be a good bet but maybe not the best.

“good mexican in thailand?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Was refreshing to find cheap and tasty mexican food here last place id expect. They have a restaurant on Ban tai road and an "express" in the food court at the thongsala food court (where we originally found them) the tacos are excellent and only 50baht (about $2 australian) buffalo wings were yummy too. The burrito is nowhere near as good as somethingid find in Sydney, but try finding a $4 buritto anywhere else apart from say mexico itself - youll have a hard time. Great if you are sick of eating thai every day !

“Best margaritas on the island!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

Have eaten here a few times, it's great value for money, you get huge portions and the food is always nice, I recommend 'the boss of Phangan's nachos' and the steak and mushroom enchilada dinner, very filling! The cocktails are probably the best thing about this places, you MUST try the jumbo passion margarita and the strawberry mojitos. The only thing I would fault about this place is the service, the waitress is constantly using her phone on hands-free, even when taking your order, which as a waitress myself I find very rude. Overall a decent place.
