Taco Shack is a great place to go for a cheap but quality / snack or main meal depending on on how many tacos you order or whether you just go for the burrito!
Lovely owner, reliable food, cocktails if you want one and central location in the MaeHead part of Koh Tao.
Vegetarian options available!

Popped in for a late lunch and fabulous cocktail. The pork burrito was amazing, just wish we'd found this place sooner!

I came in alone and immediately the owner, Kai, came over and chatted. He's been all over the world and knows his tacos! It was really welcoming and cool to have a few beers and talk about life abroad over a pair of amazing fish tacos. I'm from California and crave a good fish taco and this did not disappoint. It had some Thai flavors integrated into the salsa rather than strictly Mexican flavors, for example adding Thai basil, and it was really good! A nice twist! The fish was really fresh and the batter light and crispy. The tortillas were handmade and hand griddled, so amazing! Te music and atmosphere was super chill and the people watching on the street was a bonus. Definitely check out the cheap, tasty Taco Shack!

This was one of our favourite restaurants when we visited Koh Tao. The value for money is excellent (160 baht for a drink and 2 tacos) and the food is so so good.
Try the honey pork tacos! Delicious! The fish tacos are also fantastic. Everything is so fresh and tasty, I just wish this place was in more places than here!
