All dishes were amazing, special thanks to the owner who makes his homemade chilli sauce. A little bit pricey but its definitely worth it. If you visit Samui try this place you won't regret it!

We had shrimp curry enchiladas, carnitas enchiladas, and ground bean tacos, after starting with a guacamole, salsa and bean dip. Everything was much better than you would expect an an island in the south of Thailand.

HI Glad you enjoyed your meals at Gringos, the prawn dish you had is one of our Mex - Thai fusion dishes, Prawn Penang Enchiladas, it is becoming one of our more popular dishes. Thanks for coming by and we appreciate the review.

The food here was great - we had a variety of dishes and all were very tasty (burritos, tacos, chimichanga, fried ice cream). Service was a tad bit slow, but otherwise, it's a place we'd recommend.

Gringos is an open air restaurant with ceiling fans throughout the restaurant. We also have an outdoor area with portable fans if required. We serve traditional Tex - Mex dishes, but we also have a couple of Mex - Thai and Mex - Indian fusion dishes. There is a good sized Vegetarian Tex - Mex selection or you can go the other way and order Burgers, Steaks, chops and some fish meals of the BBQ, the Pork ribs are very popular. For those that want Thai food we have joined with the Thai Garden Restaurant for great traditional Thai dishes and they also specialize in a selection of Issan Food dishes. Want something simple we do salads, pizzas, pasta, we can also make you up a plate of Chicken & Chips. Top it off with a Deep Fried Ice Cream or Homemade Apple Pie Come in between 2 PM & 7 PM and choose one of our 14 flavours of Frozen Margaritas and we will make you up a Litre for only 350 Baht Kids Menu Available This is our 20th year in Chaweng
