I was really looking forward to trying the food here based on the reviews and was very surprised how terrible it was. I ordered delivery so it was difficult to complain but if I had been in the restaurant I would have sent the food back. The vegetarian fajitas were made with canned mushrooms. It is not so hard to...

This would be good of you dont know traditional mexican food. The was was not "mexican rice" it was hard, clearly its pre-made and then reheated. The chicken in the burrito was dry and the salsa was not good at all. Its very expensive for what it is. If your expecting traditional food, dont come here.

Great meal tonight - so much to chose from, really is something for everyone there. Friendly, attentive (but not overbearing) waiters. Recommend the pineapple frozen margherita and chilli con queso! Also love that it down an alley away from the hustle of the main street.

Forget the Mexican, the Thai Garden joined on to Gringos serves delicious Isaan style food. We had Geang Keaw Wan ( green chicken curry) Vegetable fritters ( called No Name But Good Vegetarian) Laab Moo ( delicious pork mince) fried rice and 4 beers for about 700 baht. The best Thai food we have had in 10 days in Samui
