Delicious Mexican food and margaritas!

We celebrated our last night in Thailand... by going for Mexican food! Charley Brown's is a really great little restaurant with delicious food, really good margaritas and a nice atmosphere.

I'm an American who loves Mexican food. While living in Bangkok I was introduced to Charley Brown's and now I oh as often as possible! Great atmosphere and delicious food. Make sure you visit on a Tuesday for half off margaritas (pitchers and glasses!)

Located nicely in a sub-soi on Sukhumvit Soi 11, Charley Brown's is a brisk walk away from BTS Nana. The decor is funky yet lively, with pop art paintings, car parts, and a latino ambiance all around. Our servers weren't rude to us in any way, but they also weren't exactly the friendliest bunch (seemed to prefer talking to each... More

Good food although a little bit pricey, nice quiet location just off Soi 11. Also close to many tourist attractions, the NANA BTS sky train is within walking distance. Lots of famous clubs and discos are also in Sukumvit Soi 11. And in the next Soi sukumvit 13 is the British and Australian Embassy, a Fantastic hair salon Called Zahara... More

The margaritas and appetizers were very good. But the main courses (beef chimichanga and chicken and beef tacos) were unsatisfactory. When I order a beef anything at a Mexican place I expect steak, not tasteless shredded beef that is so bland you taste nothing but refried beans. Seriously, this beef looked like cat food. I saw an order of fajitas... More

Dear Vera L It's a shame you didn't do a bit of research into Mexican food before you wrote your review. The margaritas are great.... So is the service.... Appetizers are amazing. And so is the TRADITIONAL SHREDDED BEEF! It's a Mexican staple dish. Google it. Both dishes you ordered are described on the menu as containing 'shredded beef or... More
