Nothing beats a good taco

This Mexican style restaurant is really quite satisfying to this Tex-Mex loving gal. My favorite part, there is a gluten free menu. Yay! Not an easy thing to find in Thailand. The sauce/salsa is really spicy, but that is just what some people are looking for. The salsa is fresh. The tortillas are... read more

Some of the best Mexican food I have had outside of Mexico. Food pretty authentic, very good, and portions quite large. Service not the fastest. Highly recommended for a change of pace from Thai food.

After traveling for several months in SE Asia it was wonderful to find some mexican food. The food was delicious, the margs were great, and the salsas/guac were on point. So happy I found this place!

The food is just alright, good if you need a Mexican food fix. Prices seem a bit high but nothing outrageous.

Went to Salsa kitchen when they just moved to this location and was very disappointed. Now after 6 years i give it another try and it was fantastic. Huge plates for low prices and very good quality food. Only 2 waitresses in the restaurant but the could handle it very well. Even with the place packed the food came within... More

My family and I first ate at Salsa Kitchen when it was located on "dirt alley" behind the Irish Pub in downtown Chiang Mai, built on wood stilts, no air con, only fans and bugs, but worth it! Now conveniently located across the street from the Shell gas station (free parking there) near the Kad Suan Kaew mall, and air-conditioned... More

The only problem you will have here is what to choose from the menu. I went here last night and had the combination meal. You get to pick 3 items from a good sized list. The place was totally full inside and out yet the food came in good time.

Restaurant was close to my hotel and felt like a change from Thai food, so gave it a try for lunch. I had the chicken enchiladas, which were very good and filling. Came with Mexican style rice and refried beans, salsa, sour cream, and fruit salad. As my title says, it was better than I expected. Service was ok, but... More

Wow who would have thought you'd find a little slice of Mexico here in Chiang Mai. Overall setting is nice, staff welcoming and they even play Latin style music. Chips and guacamole were great, fresh chips, good flavor and the included salsas were a nice combo of spicy and smokey roasted flavor. Shared a combo platter which was perfect for... More

Come here for the first time to give it a try and was very positively surprised. First it is not Tex-Mex fast food, not Californian Mexican food. It is home made food from Mexico. Excelent combination of flavours. The pineapple sauce on my roast pork was delicious. The Tacos very taste and the different sauces very good.
