Pretty good

The food choice and quality was fairly good. Not the best Mexican I've ever had but pretty good for Chiang Mai. It was reasonably priced and the service was fine. A fairly good vegetarian choice which was nice to see.

We live in a place where we can't often get Mexican food, so we eat as much as we can when we're abroad. We have tried several Mexican places in Chiang Mai, and Miguel's is by far the best Mexican food you can find. They have great burritos and tacos, and a decent selection of drinks. The service is very... More

Chips were not fresh fried but they were corn. Guacamole was good but no salsa fresca in sight. However the cheese enchiladas were excellent.

This makes a good place for a meal during your round-the-moat stroll. It is certainly more pricey than cheap street stalls, but the splurge is worth it. Mosquitos congregate under the covered area which has bushes around it so be prepared with bug spray. We've been when our kids are small and the place is kid-friendly.

It's Mexican food with a Thai twist. Good food, price. Fairly clean, Thai standards. We have visited the place three times. Have not been disappointed yet. Just be aware this is not authentic Mexican food. It defiantly has a Thai twist.

This was our first trip to Chiang Mai, and Miguel's was highly recommended by friends. The atmosphere at Miguel's is casual, and the employees were attentive. We ordered burritos, chips and salsa, and a bbq sandwich. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Although we didn't try the fajitas, a number of nearby tables ordered them and they looked very... More

A friend and local resident introduced me to Miguel's on my second day in Chiang Mai and now, the morning of my third day, I am waiting for them to open for breakfast. The service is friendly and efficient; the food is excellent; and the prices are very reasonable. I had a great lunch including a beer, for about US$6.50.

The atmosphere is very nice the staff and the owner are kind and attentive, the margaritas if you ask to be made with a better tequila are not bad . The food overall is good and well presented ... Definitely a try

First, the GPS is wrong. Miguel's is up the street a about 100 meters further, not down the alley. Second, the food is good, but no where near great. When you get the urge for something that tastes like home, then this place gets bonus points for satisfying a homesick urge. However, if rated purely on quality and flavor, eh,... More

My husband and I came across Miguels while on a stroll one evening and we decided to give it a shot. The staff were very courteous and acknowledged the veggie options on the menu were pure vegetarian, and there were quite a few! The guacamole was delicious. We had a bean burrito and fajitas, and they both were great. The... More
