“Fajitas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Good texmex resturant, but beware of mosquitos in the backyard. They supply you with mozzy spray at the table though. Love the fajitas.

“Muy Bueno!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

Not being an expert on Mexican food all I can say is the meal we had here was muy bueno - very good! It was helped by attentive staff and a friendly owner who recognised that we were the people who he had saved from being run over when he stopped to allow us to cross the road. We ordered a litre of Lime Margarita which the owner told the staff to serve in two 1/2 litres for the same price so that it wouldn't get spoilt by the hot evening. To eat we ordered a Enchilada and Taco combo and chicken Fajitas. Both dishes were really flavoursome and the serves were a good size, plenty to leave us quite satisfied. The meal without the Margaritas came to 750 Baht and with the drinks 1125.

“Best Mexican we have in a long time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013 via mobile

We ate here last night, the food was amazing. Started with nachos & my chicken fajitas were def the best. Warm fresh flour tortillas, beautiful fresh food. Kids loved their quesadillas great mojitos too. Just off main road in chaweng, & don't be fooled, we were only family there. We will be back for sure.

“Enchilladas to die for......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Have been going to this Expat owned/run Mexican restaurant since my first visit to Samui. Have been to Samui 9 times....

Love the Fajitas and Enchiilladas here. Combine it with their Marghritas and you are in heaven.

Location is very central, in a small street just off main Chaweng road....

Never had a bad experience....
