I’m a « aficionado » of Tacos, and I can tell that this restaurant serves you great tacos, juicy and flavorful meat. There is a great atmosphere here, especially on the evening. Everything was delicious. The only missing point is if you eat in the garden it...could be a little bit noisy.More

This place was tough to find but was absolutely worth the trek. Traditional Mexican food at its finest. The Carnitas were exceptional. So many great dishes to choose from. Portion sizes were good and the prices were reasonable (I found that everywhere was a bit...pricey in Thong Lor). There are quite a lot of places to eat on Thong Lor Rd but the Missing Buro has to be a priority stop.More

Authentic Mexican food, every dish was delicious that we ordered. Worth paying the extra for a visit here.

The restaurant looks magical with its playful colours and lights glowing in the darkness of the small soi, I was expecting big things! Unfortunately, the look and atmosphere of the restaurant was no indication of the food quality. The food was warm, not hot and...I suspect it was pre-made and heated in the microwave or re-heated somehow - I’ve never been to any Mexican restaurant that can turn around an enchilada within 2 minutes of ordering. Lacking in flavour, I asked for some hot sauce or Tabasco to spice it up but the restaurant couldn’t provide this. Service was efficient but not particularly friendly with staff hanging around looking bored. In summary, I’d come here again for a drink but not to eat.More

We got here to have an early bite. The setting is beautiful but the food isn’t as charming as the setting. We had 3 dishes (can’t remember the exact names). They weren’t small in portion and weren’t that impressive. The final bill was about 1700...Baht with with 2 drinks.. not sure if it’s worth a return trip.More

located in an alley of Thong Lo, not difficult to find. went after seeing the reviews and to try Mexican cuisine. ordered, sopesitos (dont know what they were, went by the servers suggestion for a vegetarian dish), was disappointed, had some smell of non vegetarian...which the server couldn't understand. quesadillas were average. my friend ordered shrimp tacos which he too did not like much. have good selection of drinks but were expensive. left soon, doubt would return again.More

A hidden gem with a quirky atmosphere in our own neighbourhood. Went with the family including 2 little ones. A warning they don't have highchairs. Sat on the outside verandah which suited. The menu is well explained including photos and then summarised at the end....Even though the serves aren't large the food is delicious. Good variety of beers. Margaritas are expensive. Definitely worth a visit if your in the neighbourhood.More

Thong Lor & Ekamai
Known as Bangkok’s hippest neighbourhood, Thong Lor
and Ekamai is where the city's well-dressed and
well-heeled spend their nights sipping cocktails in
hidden speakeasies and posh restaurants. Live it up in
one of Thong Lor's extravagant clubs and be prepared
to brush shoulders with a Thai celebrity or two. While
great for a night out, the area is nothing short of
interesting during the daytime, either. Expect a mix

The offerings center on the strength of the owner/chef, which regionally is the capital of Mexico. The ambience is a laid back casual outdoor (and small indoor) Ekkamai hangout. Hard to beat.
