great food friendly owners

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

We only ate at one restaurant in Chiang Kong so I can't do a comparison however I will go out on a limb here and suggest that it would be hard to find dining in the town. Honestly, Mexican food in regional Thailand? Yeah well, it was great. I'm not sure I've had better Mexican food anywhere (never been to... More

The food at Bamboo was excellent. My wife and I were both feeling gastrnomic discomfort when we hit Chiang Khong. Jib and his wife took care of us and made our recovery more pleasant. We ate there three times in as many days. The bread and bagels were superb. When you are tired of rice and veggies, the burritos will... More

Thought we would give this a bash as it had good reviews, glad we did. The food was great, not the cheapest but you get what you pay for I say, the owner Jib is great fun, he even treated us to a some 'Blues' songs on his guitar when everyone had left, brilliant. Offered to make us some sandwich's... More

Had wonderful freshly made Mexican food, beautiful flavours and presentation. Not bad for a man whose never been to Mexico. Cooked from the heart. Not cheap but worth it. The owner, Jib, is a great character and joined us with some songs on his guitar at the end of the evening. Great night, thank you. Sandwiches for our boat trip... More
