After a long day of diving we stubbled across this colourful and cosy taco shack and you know what? It was awesome, I ate till I was full and didn't it didn't cost the earth. The best tacos id had in a long time. 10/10 would come back

“Just what i needed to mix things up!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

Thai food is amazing don't get me wrong but some time's you need to kick back with a fresh taco or burrito wrapped up in a home made tortilla! Owners a great guy( lady's love his pecks and is bright smile/tad creepy) Always a good atmosphere around the place!

“Best tacos!! Do eeetttt!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

The most appealing thing about this place is the simplicity of the menu! No more humming and hawing over a 20 page menu at a we-do-it-all restaurant... You want tacos? Go to taco shack! Every choice is a great choice! Not to mention that the owner is a pretty nice dude :)
Do eeeeet!!! Do eeeet!!

“You the man!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014 via mobile

I arrived yesterday late and walked up the street and met the owner who asked me if I needed a room. He has a hostel
Upstairs for very cheap and it's very quite. Great atmosphere an nothing but good vibes. I went downstairs for some much needed tacos and they were amazing. I would recommend anyone that the comes to ko tao, the first thing you should do when you get off that boat is take a seat and indulge.
The owner is amazing and very helpful with anything you might need, cool guy!
Cheers from canada.
