Outstanding

My best meal in 7 years of travelling, including Mexico! Fresh ingredients, cooked to perfection. Chimichangas with pulled pork were the highlight, but everything was perfect. Deserves to be No.1 on TA for Chiang Mai.

After living in Thailand for 4 years, I can say with certainty that Salsa Kitchen is the BEST Mexican restaurant in the country. From Bangkok to Phuket, we hadn't had a good Mexican or even Tex Mex meal since we've been here. Until Salsa Kitchen in Chiang Mai!! BEST margaritas I've had in ages, superb fish tacos. The shrimp tacos... More

I wish I could visit Chiang Mai more often just so I could I come here. I have missed Mexican food for so long and it was such a pleasure to have burritos and fajitas and guacamole that was just amazing. More so, that an introduction to Mexican food to my bf who's never had any was great! I would... More

We've been traveling for a while in Thailand and were thrilled to find Salsa Kitchen. We stayed in Chiang Mai for a week and literally came here 5 times! Chips come out warm and golden brown with a variety of salsas. chicken burrito is HUGE! And filled with chicken, cheese, beans, and more! Obviously we paid more here than going... More

Cheap, loooovely food, and satisfying service. When we arrived there were no tables available. And we had to suggest ourselves to wait. Because the waitor just said "No, no space", when we asked to get a tanke. Poor English skills from the staff, but the food was splendid! I shared a portion with my friend, because they were huge. They... More

This was a wonderful place to eat. The homemade tortillas were great, the quacamole was delicious. The fish tacos were actually burritos, but the taste was incredible. We all loved it and plan to go back.

Kept going back for the incredible ribs with homemade bbq sauce. Made 3 trips to get them. They are served with corn on the cob and potato salad and a jicama salad(very nice). Couldn't get enough of them. The fahitas were exceptionally good as well. A nice family restaurent with great staff - very friendly. The marguaritas are worth the... More

I am used to great Mexican food in California, and miss it when I am in Thailand. The Salsa Kitchen is quite authentic, with real guacamole rather than the green mayonnaise I have had elsewhere, and real salsa. I love the chicken chimichangas, and always have them once each trip. This place gets busy, and I here more American English... More

Nice menu, big portions and not to pricey. We had nachos with fresh guacamole and nachos with refried black beans with cheese, both served with two dips(both tasty, one spicy). Then mango chicken quesadilla with spicy pineapple chutney with raisins( very tasty 8/10) and potato salad, rice and sour cream, this dish was the best. The burritos with chili porc... More
