“Not bad.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

I attended this restaurant for dinner alone on a Thursday night and found the staff to be extremely helpful and accommodating to my diet requirements. The food was tasting and reasonably priced. It is a good place to sit down, relax and watch the mobs of people throughout the food court.

“Great Mexican food in Bangkok- multiple locations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

If you're tired of the same old Thai food or just need some Mexican, visit Sunrise Tacos!
There are 2 great locations, and a few not so great ones. Avoid them in Terminal 21 and Siam Paragon malls as they skimp and there is no salsa bar. Same price, less bang. You can order a single taco with beans & rice for just under 100 baht (with free chips and salsa bar at Silom or Sukhumvit) or get 3 tacos for 195-260 baht, depending on which you go for. All in all, very reasonable for good Mexican in Bangkok.
Instead, visit either the Sukhumvit location (between Nana and Asok BTS Stations on the south side of the street) or the Silom location (at the mouth of Silom Soi 4- the soi famous for its many gay pubs- which is just down the street from Sala Dang BTS station- exit 3, opposite Soi Convent).
Both of those locations have some outdoor and indoor seating, as well as salsa bars with more than a dozen different salsa options. The owners are great and the Thai staff is well-trained. I am always surprised by how professional and hardworking they are- rare qualities in Thai wait staff. The manager at the Silom location is Hispanic and very nice.

Dear Driffer,

Thanks for your loyal patronage and thumbs-up review. It's because of guests like yourself that Sunrise has been the Number 1 Mexican restaurant in Bangkok since 2006.

Our Sukhumvit Soi 12 and Silom Soi 4 branches are two of our most popular because they are open 24 hours and, like you said, have a killer salsa bar with 12 kinds of fresh and free homemade salsas.

I'm sorry you had disappointing experiences at our Terminal 21 and Siam Paragon branches. While they don't have the space for a salsa bar, they do offer the same wonderful salsa selections. Just ask the staff and they will gladly bring them to you. And of course they are free. We also have another outlet in Emporium. Please give our mall outlets a second chance. I think you will discover they are just as banging!

Also, thanks for pointing out two hallmarks of the Sunrise Tacos brand -- great value for money and superior service. By the way, the Silom manager is an American of Italian descent, not Mexican. However we do have a Mexican Executive Chef!

We look forward to serving you again soon!

Regards,

Greg Lange

“Vegetarian Option!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Excellent place for vegetarian Mexican food in Bangkok, TH.

Opposite to Hotel Sofitel Sukhumvit Bangkok and next to Sheraton Hotel.

Many vegetarian options, excellent service, great food.

Look out for the Manager (I think so) Kh. Jim, dressed in a Mexican dress and with a ear to ear smile. She not only helps you with choosing from the menu but also ensures that you get your food hot & in sequence no piling up all at a time. If you are visiting with kinds, she humors them and makes their time great at the joint.

Been here many times in the past (at least 7-8 times) and each time find the experience to be much better than the previous one.

Even the waitress Julian was good, serving all with a smile, even though the restaurant was full, she managed to do everything with a good Thai smile.

Will for sure come back again & again, whenever in Bangkok.

Though missed the owner this time, he was not there. Enjoy seeing him manage the staff serve the guests with a hands-on policy and with a genuine concern.

A must visit in Bangkok.

All the best and please keep up to this level of customer satisfaction.

“Good place for a beer and a burrito!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

I've been Bangkok now a week and I've been here twice already! The cocktails are nice, the staff are friendly and the portions are generous and tasty. Try the Mai Tai's, they're really good, the chicken quesadillas are huge so really good value if your travelling for a long time and watching your money, definitely a portion for two people not one! Fun place to go, sit outside, have a drink and watch the sky train speed by!

“When the city sleeps...this place will serve you hot yummy food !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

A must try for Mexican food. The portions are large, variety of dishes to choose from! The Sangria was great! The outdoor seating is bang on the main road with the indoor restaurant a bit tucked in. Very pleasant staff and the quality of food is excellent!
