“Still my favourite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

We have been eating here for over a year now and even though we've tried most of the other Mexican places in Phnom Penh this still remains the best all round.

The burritos are absolute winners, packed full of really tender and tasty meat. The two of them that are served as the meal are always too much so I get the other to go for lunch the next day.

The margaritas are lovely and good value with their $1.50 deal for your second one.

The highlight is definitely their signature hot sauce which I just can't get enough of.

“Very good Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Some Mexican places rely too much on refried beans and stodge but this place has a wide variety and choice of ingredients and food was very well presented and tasty. The wait staff were excellent, and the margaritas just about perfect - and cheaper than elsewhere in PP ($2.75 for the first then $1.5 thereafter).

“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

This place is heaven. The margaritas are fantastic and the food is excellent. Just like Southwest back in the states. Great atmosphere and friendly staff too. I think they even deliver! I will definitely return!

“My frequent visits are testament to how good it is”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

I go to Taqueria Corona a lot, simply because it is just so good. Easily the best Mexican food in town and burritos that remind me of the days I used to live near the Mission in San Francisco. Friendly owners and staff who have come to know us over time and are very sweet. Love this place. Try the soft tacos!

“Just what I was missing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

Yes, the flavors were great! Turned up with a good size group and were seated by a flock of pleasant wait staff. The entrees were all delicious at our table and the sides tasted like home. I've eaten Tex-Mex in China, Thailand, and several other Asian countries and this is my favorite. The fresh salsa and an order of Allen's Style nachos is a great way to start the meal.
