“Best Mexican food in SE Asia”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

I am a Mexican food freak, so I usually only eat MExican food in US or MExico. I made an exception for AndoLoco because travelers told me about it. I assumed I would be disappointed, but I was wrong! This place actually imports Mexican food products so they have the real jalapenos, hot sauce etc. The chorizo is the best I have found in Asia and everything about the place is legit! The shrimp scampi (in photo) is fantastic too. Beyond the delicious food (which is well-priced and way below what they would charge for Mexican in Bangkok), Ando Loco is a really fun place with great drinks (strawberry mojitos and frozen margaritas are killer) and nice social vibe. Plenty of people there and the owner Ando has been on the island for a long time so is a great resource for all things Pha-Ngan. I can't wait to get back!

“Great Mexican”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We came here two nights in a row because we were that happy with the restaurant. I had a passion mojito and the next night a strawberry mojito, both were delicious. The burritos are really flavorful, and also order guacamole which is a good sized portion. Really happy with our experience.

“Best Mexican Food in Thailand”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

Ando Loco is the best Mexican restaurant in Thailand, and I have tried them all, including Senior Pico's at the Ambassador Hotel in Bangkok and La Monita, also in Bangkok. Ando Loco's chef and owner knows Mexican food and puts a lot of effort into making it. Nowhere else in Thailand can you get homemade Chorizo this good. Nowhere else in Thailand can you get fish tacos this good. And the prices are very reasonable. In Bangkok, prices would easily be three or four times more. For people who know and appreciate good Mexican food, Ando Loco's is the place to go.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Ate there my last 2 nights in Baan Tai. Best mexican food I have had since coming to Asia a few months ago. If you can make it to a cheap taco night on a Saturday..do it, you won't be sorry.

Man, I travel from Samui to Phanang just to come to this joint! Excellent food, fantastic service and some of the best homemade salsa that I have ever had. Keep up the good work! See you next month! Drooling while I am typing this...
