“Nice Tex Mex in Thailand”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had one lunch here and really enjoyed it. The food was much more tex mex than Mexican, but it was tasty. They also had very good margaritas. I liked the passion fruit one.

“Always Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I ate here several times in early 2013 and early 2012, and every time the food was great.

They have a big selection of Mexican classics with a little Thai influence here and there. The Tequila prawns are what I can remember now but you can't go wrong with anything. Big portions and authentic ingredients including imported Mexican hot sauces.

Try one of the big selection of Margaritas (made with good quality tequila) but beware... they are strong!

“Best Mexican in Thailand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We live in Thailand, and went on a trip down south to the islands. After numerous experiences of bad service, overpriced food, and being treated like a tourist with endless pockets, we couldn't believe we had stumbled in to a place like Ando Loco.

Our meal: Margaritas, Veggie Enchiladas served with a cheesy Ando Cup (cilantro rice, refried beans, salsa, sour cream), and Baja Style Fish Tacos, which seem to be the most sought-after item on the menu. We wanted to order much more, like the Sweet Potato Fries with garlic aioli, or the guacamole and tortilla chips, but we were just too stuffed!

If we ever go back to Koh Pangan we are definitely going straight back to Ando Loco!

“Great margaritas, good food, and nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Looks slightly out of place on a Thai island, with the jumbo cactuses looking like they've just come from a cartoon, but this Mexican restaurant served up some really good food. More expensive than the proper "local" food spots, but well worth a look.
