We had the nachos as a starter (they were okay). The rest however was great! We had a variety of burritos as well as the chimichanga. They hand you a home made jalapeño sauce if you like it more spicy. After some disappointing experiences with...More

The food here is excellent and the prices are very low. It is up a side street, but worth seeking out . Plenty of vegetarian options for us veggies too. The owner is often at the bar and is a very friendly guy.

Of course having Mexican in Thailand seems kind of crazy. But was pleasantly surprised. As someone who enjoys their Tex-mex.. I was definitely filled with some great Mexican food. The prices are typical if you’re eating non Thai and going to a sit down so...More
