I went to Ando Loco a couple of times in December, as a change from Thai food and was curious about the place as I really appreciate this kind of food at home. I can highly recommend the Ando Loco to anyone who would try something else than the Thai restaurants for a change. The service is really good, the... More

My travel partner and I stopped in on a Tuesday night on a whim. We are from California and eat Mexican food 3-4 times a week back home, and we're pleasantly surprised with everything presented to us at ando loco! We got the fajita bowl and the nachos and ended the meal with a couple margaritas. The fajita bowl was... More

Super busy restaurant! They have great food and since Mexican is a rare finding in Thailand eat it whenever you can find it! They have 30 baht tacos on Saturday, whattttt! The fresh juice is also very good! The vibe of the experience is great, social and somewhere you could stay all night eating tacos and drinking margaritas!

Was pleasantly surprised at how great the food was here! I had the Crispy Combination, which was a chicken chimichanga and fish taco. I literally licked my plate clean! This coming from a SoCal girl where Mexican food is undeniably one of the best places! The service was great too! I would definitely recommend this place to tourists craving authentic... More

The service was prompt and attentive when we first arrived; however, after this, we were completely ignored by the server. After initially placing our order, I occasionally asked various staff members, over the course of 45 minutes, how much longer it would be until the food came out. I have worked in the restaurant industry, and know that a simple... More

I have eaten here before and thought that I would try it again as a change from local foods. The beer is cold.... but our chicken fajitas were heavily saturated in oil and the refried beans were less than desirable. Others may enjoy the food, but I will have to pass on future visits.

Great place to get Mexican food while in Koh Phangan. The burritos and nachos are amazing. While a little pricey it is definitely worth it.

Really nice food at very competitive prices! I had the Chimichanga and fish burrito which came with delicious sour cream and salsa. My gf had the nachos which were good also. The portion sizes are quite generous too!

I spent five days on the island and ate at Ando Loco at least once a day (I have a slight Mexican food addiction). Everything I ordered was delicious, and this was some of the best salsa I've had since moving to Thailand. If you go for an early dinner, it is less than a ten minute walk to the... More

We love Mexican food and this restaurant was a treat! Friendly staff and funky 80s music. We ate here 3 times within 2 weeks, every meal was excellent. The food was not cheap, neither was it expensive, it was on par with other western restaurants. I recommend the fish tacos! If you like a margarita cocktails and there are two... More
