Went here after the positive TripAdvisor reviews and the close proximity to our hostel. I had the chicken burrito as they are usually filling and delicious, this one left a lot to be desired. Surprisingly there was not that much rice in it, something that is usually in abundance as its cheap and filling, there was also a distinct lack... More

Amazing Mexican food - probably better than we've had back home! The sweet potato fries are fantastic and we both had a burrito which was also so delicious! Portions are quite big too so we took some home for later. The waitress was extremely friendly and happy to help with whatever we wanted. Would definitely go back and recommend to... More

AMAZING FOOD!! When you want your mexican fix, this place is hard to beat. They also have delicious sweet chilli fries that I could never go past. I'm coming back to the island next month, so will be saving for a few more rounds + frozen margarta's. Ooooo I would kill for one of those right now actually... Consistently delicious... More

It isn't often you find yourself inside of an authentic mexican restaurant run by a Chicago native who is heavily into gangster rap. Although he has left his gangster roots behind him in his Chicago hometown, he still serves up a pretty sweet burrito. Known as a freestyle rapper in the Chicago heyday before house took over, Ando Loco, aka:... More

Staff didn't smile or greet us and seemed to be bothered when we ordered. Food was average and not worth the price. Not all bad

I just love this place and return frequently. Their dishes are HUGE and loaded with the most amazing toppings and sauces (mmmh, nacho cheeeeeese!). There are many vegetarian options available and beef dishes can easily be substituted with beans. I just love their massively loaded "Boss of Koh Phangan" Nachos and the massive Veggie Burrito. Still need to try a... More

This is by far my favorite place to dine on Koh Phangan. Ando Loco has delicious food at a reasonable price. I recommend the burrito suizo style with a jumbo marguerita. This will fill you up and send you packing with a smile on your face without denting your wallet. Friendly staff, great service, and absolutely delicious food!

After being recommended here we were so happy with our meals, nachos and beer battered fish to start both were amazing and then I had a chorizo chimichanga and a fish taco. We all loved our food and the staff were really lovely and friendly, we wanted to go back the next day it was so good!
