We came as a large group late afternoon and were the only people there, so we didn't really get a sense of atmosphere. However, our experience was still really good. As we were a large group I had pre ordered starters and I have seriously never seen so much food in all of my life. We had nachos quesadillas, chicken wings and the best sweet potato chips I have ever tasted. We had so much food in fact we didn't have room for a main course and still took lots of food away with us. They had a good choice of cocktails too.

Grant it the food is pretty good especially for k.p. however the servers seemed to not care what so ever. Really, they did not say a word to us or to the other groups there. I even tried thai, nada. The menu states that it is an international level restaurant so the staff appreciate tips...ya right.

Everything about this place is amazing: fresh ingredients (with some special ingredients sourced from the US and Mexico), friendly staff, great vibes, open kitchen and rock'n tunes.

Ando Loco is an incredible Mexican Restaurant in Thongsala, Koh Phangan, Thailand. My husband and I first stumbled upon this incredible restaurant on our first trip to Koh Phangan in December 2012. It was love at first sight, taste and smell!

Firstly, Ando the restaurant's owner is an incredible host and has a special way about him that makes every diner feel like family. Secondly, the food is AMAZING! Each item on the menu is excellently prepared with market fresh ingredients. (We ate here almost everyday of our trip) Thirdly, the margaritas are the best on the planet! Ando is legendary mixologist, and makes a killer margarita with the freshest of fruit, top shelf tequila and serves them up in the most generous jumbo sized margarita chalices. Another round, gracias por favor! Ando Loco is an incredible place to have an epic mexican meal, a first rate margarita in a fun and lively setting among new friends and old.

You can also dine here in good conscience, because Ando also runs a charitable organization called Hands on Helping Foundation. HOH empowers children and their families to overcome poverty through education in Cambodia and Nepal.
