“Tasty Chicken Nachos”
Reviewed June 21, 2012 via mobile

Chicken Nachos Supremos were pretty good. I've grown up eating Mexican food and I thought they were tasty. Chicken was nicely seasoned and sauces were good. The best and most authentic sauce might have been the green bottled one they brought out with the nachos. I also think the nachos are great considering you're eating Mexican on an island in Thailand. I'm impressed with the ingredients they can get.

The nachos were 215THB for the regular size, and my small Red Bull was 35THB.

Service took a while before it began, but since it took me a while to decide it was great for me. Better than being rushed, methinks.

They provide bug spray, which I thought was nice. Free WiFi is also available.

“Good for a Change”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

This place was a nice change from eating Thai food everyday. It is located behind the Islander sports bar in central chaweng. Look for the girls in the Mexican hats on the main road, and they will escort you to the restaurant.

The menu screams authentic Mexican and they don’t disappoint. I had the daily special which was 280 Baht. Quite reasonable considering the quality of the food. (see photo)

You can choose to sit in the garden, which looks like a nice hide out for couples looking to spend some romantic time together away from the hustle and bustle of the main road.

They offer free wifi, and the service was excellent.

It is a great chance to try good Mexican food at a reasonable price whilst you are on holiday.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

A lovely little child friendly restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious not to mention cheap. After our meal the kids went behind the restaurant for a game of mini golf, so it was all round a great night.
