“Oh those pickles!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

Sunrise Tacos being owned by an American, you have to expect some American food will find its way onto the menu. In this case their American Cheeseburger is worth a mention. On its own it is difficult to say it is better or worse than any other, because it simply comes down to the quality of the meat. In this case the quality is good. But what comes along with the cheeseburger makes it worth a mention.

The fries are hand cut and that irregular shape makes them exciting to eat. Some thinner places on the fries are more cooked so you tend to get a wonderful variation in the flavor and texture.

But for me, having been born and raised on a farm, it is the dill pickles that come along with the burger that make it exciting. They come to you in a jar with some tongs, and you fish out the ones you want. Because they are home made and not store bought, you suddenly come to realize just how skimpy the store brands are on the dill. The dill pickles at Sunrise have a taste that can only be described as big and bold, and I can’t help but being reminded of my mother’s home made pickles from the farm that would set your mouth watering.

So in summary, Sunrise Tacos is on my regular visit list. The authentic Mexican food along with other American food selections provides a good choice of foods if not everyone is in the mood for Mexican food.

Dear John K,

Thanks for your visit and wonderful review.

In addition to our award winning Mexican fare, we are also very proud of our American favorites at Sunrise Tacos. The Sunrise Burger Experience you mentioned has been a fan favorite since the day we put it on the menu. There are several important reasons for this. (1) We use high-grade imported beef from the USA and Australia, (2) Our burgers are cooked on a US$ 25,000 Josper Grill imported from the USA, which has a way of locking in flavor and juices while giving a wonderful smokey quality to the beef, (3) Hand-cut fries cooked to perfection, (4) Cheese imported from the USA, (5) Sunrise Tacos Pickle Jar. The signature element to the Sunrise Burger Experience, our pickle jar is served with every burger we make and is packed with Homemade Dill Pickles. Guaranteed to be the tastiest and crunchiest pickles in the kingdom. And only found at Sunrise Tacos.

We look forward to serving you again soon.

Regards,
Greg Lange

Dear thpmm,

Thanks for your visit and review. Surprised by your comments and even more disappointed that you didn't enjoy your meal. Most of our guests love our food and say it's delicious and fresh. At Sunrise Tacos, every meal is made to order and made fresh. We don't pre-make our meals and we don't serve processed food. No microwaved meals either. Furthermore, we use pretty high-grade materials considering that our prices are quite affordable. For example, we import beef from Australia and the US, avacados from Australia, and cheeses from the US. We also customize every meal, so you control hot spicy or mild your meal is. Wht's more, we offer a complimentary salsa bar with 12 different kinds of homemade salsas prepared fresh daily. These too offer a broad range of flavors for every pallet. Perhaps you didn't realize that you can customize you meal, sir. Or maybe we just had an off day. In any event, we do hope you will drop by again and give us a mother chance to "wow" you.

Greg Lange

“Fantastic menu with Authentic salsa bar and best Cheeseburger”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

How many places on this planet can provide you with 12different salsa and a extensive menu of truly many different Mexican dishes. I live in Southern California and I believe this chain of restaurants has got there concept and staff fine tuned.

They even have nights that allow you to eat to your hearts content, ie. all you can eat tacos, they have no less than five different toppings and your choice of soft or crispy shells. They presentation and waiter and waitress understand English which is a major benefit when deciding where one chooses to eat in Bangkok!

I went back after seeing a outstanding review on there Cheeseburger on Stickmanbangkok .com.
I was quite satisfied as it was prepared Medium Rare in a Jasper Grill which insures that it was cooked to perfection, it truly was done to my taste. The order which comes with freshly prepared French fries is something to consider as French fries made fresh, these are outstanding . I asked for grilled onions on my burger and it was done as requested, they clearly know how to write up the order so the cooks can prepare it as requested. Let me tell you that the entire burger was outstanding and the first bite the meat juices oozed out onto my plate.

So when you want a comfort food don't hesitate to patronize Sunrise Taco, they are open 24 hours a day at that location,

Thanks to you and Stickman for finding us. The Josper Grill really has a way at sealing in the juices and flavors.

Look forward to serving you again soon!

“Best kept secret in Bangkok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

Since I came to Bangkok I've eaten at Sunrise several times. The outlet on Sukhumvit at Soi 12 is my favorite location (I found one in Terminal 21 too) because you can eat inside or outside and listen to music from Thai singers doing their best to sing English songs. The food is always great and the staff are very pleasant. Now, I know, that no place is perfect but you'd have a tough time saying anything bad about Sunrise. So I'm sitting with my buddy last night next to a table where this guy was going out of his way to be a major jerk giving the manager a bad time about the food and the service. The manager was doing everything he could to make this dude happy but he was having none of it. My buddy even told the manager right in front of this freeloader that the food and service was awesome. After that the guy shut up. I don't understand why guys with such bad attitudes don't just order home delivery and let people enjoy themselves. Sunrise you rock!

Dear MilesToGoBeforeIGo,

Wow! What a review! I don't know what I can possibly say except I guess the secret is out and thank you. The fact that you enjoy our food and service thrills us to no end. Gosh, we really appreciate your loyalty and thanks for "having our back". Also, just want to let you know that we will be moving our Sukhumvit Soi 12 location to Soi 13 this year. We are really excited about the move and we hope to see you there. Also, we have 2 other 24-hour outlets in Bangkok, on Silom Soi 4 and Khao San Road, just in case you find yourself in those areas. Hope to serve you again soon!!!
