“Great Vibe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

I had one vege and one fish taco and both were delicious. My boyfriend had the mega burrito and was also impressed. Decent sized portions and very reasonably priced. It had such a great vibe to the place and the service was very good.

“Great food super-cool guy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

If you're in Koh Tao, stop by the Taco Shack. Yes you can scribble on the wall, and the owner is a really interesting guy to talk to, but the food is really where it's at. A great lunch spot to fill up without spending a whole lot.

“Best tacos in SE Asia”

This was such a great place! We were driving around the area and decided to give a try to this small taco place. The waiter was very friendly and we got very delicious tacos, I haven't had better in SE Asia!
