Collected some takeaway breakfast from this cafe very early in the morning before our boat to Luang Prabang. Would definitely buy again. I'd recommend the bacon sandwich, the bread was beautiful and you can tell its home made with love.

excellent food! authentic home made Mexican carefully prepared by a caring couple. Lovely place and if you are lucky, the owner will play a guitar for you.

We had a great dinner here the night before crossing the border and the slow boat to Luang Prabang. We even ordered sandwiches from their home made bread and the owner delivered them fresh in the morning to our guesthouse! So tasty. Definitely go here...and try the bread too!

Great Mexican food, but a limited selection of choices, Incredible home made bread, and best coffee in Chiang Khong, hand roasted locally in the hills. Good breakfast choices at reasonable prices open at 7:00 am. Owners are very friendly and helpful they both speak english

The Mexican offerings here are great (a bit pricey for Thai standards - around 220-250 a main) but they are delicious, very well cooked and filling. They also do a nice Indian curry, better then any others I've had in other places in Thailand.

Been in South East Asia for 4 weeks and definetly the best food we've eaten! Its a shame I was only staying here for 1 night. The owner and family was absolutely awesome and worked very hard to get everything perfect....first time I've given a larger than normal tip

That's not a supportable claim, but the coffee, roasted and ground by the husband and wife owners of Bamboo Mexican, is the best we had in our four weeks in Thailand. Owner is eccentric and extremely proud of his coffee and of his home made whole grain breads, and these were also excellent. His wife is lovely and very friendly.... More

If you like Mexican food, you will LOVE this restaurant. The owner has a great sense of humor. He tells you that their food is no good and then blows your mind with delicious Mexican. The tortilla chips are thin and crispy with just the right amount of salt. The salsa is made from scratch and delicious!! It's not super... More
