“Good quality Mexican and Thai food at reasonable prices with a kids play room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

I got invited by a friend who lives in Phuket to eat here. Mexican and Thai food available with alcoholic drinks including reasonably priced wine. I liked the Thai dishes and my friends enjoyed the Thai. Not lots on the menu but good selection of classics. Really enjoyed my dishes inc pineapple rice and a minced fish with spices dish. Nice modern decor and recently opened so place is spotless and has good aircon. Only holds maybe 40-50 people so ukre intimate. Has kids room in the corner with tv, books and a few toys and there is a nice fish tank in the middle of the restaurant. Good for a casual evening meal.

“I don't get it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

Very colorful place. Nothing authentic about it whatsoever which was disappointing. Yes there is Mexican-ish food but half the menu is thai. A safe bet but a restaurant that is confident in the quality of its food shouldn't have to play it safe like that.

1 waitress on duty when we dinned at gitanos. The food was passable but nothing worth writing about. Even the thai food seemed average.

Overall nothing offensive. Interesting decor. The menu should be halved and improved on. I can't imagine Mexicans opening a thai restaurant.

Will go back to see if anything changes. Nice to have another western option in town though.

“Excellent thai food, Mexican food more average”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2012

Been here twice. Nice place with AirCon. No wifi. Nice decorated in its own hip style. A lttle bit more expensive than other thai resturants but no so much. I got the beat thai course ever, crispy chicken in peanut sauce. My daughters nachos were not good so much even my 10 year old daughter noticed it. Next time I still got the perfect crispy chicken and mybdaughter ordered a burritos which was Ok but nothing special. If the rest of the thai kitchen is as good as what I got (and it looked so) go there but choose thai not mexican

“Makes a nice change”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Living in Thailand for several years it makes a nice change to eat mexican food, especially when it is this good.
