Good food and big portions

Been to this restaurant on several occasions. The food is always good and the portions are always hearty. You will not leave feeling hungry that's for sure.

If you are hungry and crave for tacos, this is it! Go for it. Delicious, value for money and great setting and the wait is not as crazy as other place but make sure you do reservation just in case

Great place if you're a mexican food lover such as myself. Really delicious! I have one complaint: they demand consuming above 500 THB if you want to pay by card (I dont usually go to mexican restaurants wanting to spend that much), and being an expat in thailand, I avoid taking out money because of the transaction fee. If they... More

Normally I don't focus on the negative, but last night was so aversive that I feel obligated to share. We went to La Monita to meet friends, at their request. The atmosphere is not bad, very colorful, although the acoustics make conversation difficult and the air conditioning was frigid. The real problem was the food. When I saw the wide... More

Have been coming to La Monita regularly for over 3 years, best Mexican in Bangkok in my opinion. 2 minute walk from Ploenchit BTS station, very conveniently located. Loads of parking for those who are driving. La Monita have extended their seating with a very cool additional space, with skylight, fountain and a lot more seating.

I used to live within a 5 minute walk of La Monita. This was dangerous as La Monita has amazing food at very reasonable prices and I had to stop myself from eating there every day to not gain absurd amounts of weight. The queso fundido appetizer is one of the best things I've eaten... I've tried to replicate it... More

Food is nice. Not amazing. Small selection of vegetarian options. Tip: you can order from the next door El Osito menu in case the la monita menu isn't working for you.

Close to the BTS at Chitlom, only a 3 min walk easy to find. A small no frills with basic fit out, albeit colorful to brighten your day. The service is quick with good english speaking staff. Not rushed we order some starters and a drink or two, moving on and ordering as we went, helps not to over order.... More

Delicious food. Friendly causal atmosphere. Always busy, westerners and locals alike. Margaritas are to die for. One of my favourite spots in Bangkok.

Visited the outlet at EmQuartier and it was fabulous. Loved the food. We had the Bew Zealand Beef Quesadilla and the Grilled Chicken in roast salsa. The food was fresh, the meat was succulent... the hot sauce was fiery, a complete sensational delight. Service was fast and good. We asked for a slight change in my son's meal, and the... More
