Ive eaten at so many restaurants where the quality goes down over time.Ive been impressed at Salsa kitchen where it seems to be the opposite. Its not the best mexican Ive eaten, but Ive always enjoyed my meal. Not to be missed are the mango and cheese quesadillas and the frozen margarita pie. Sweet potato tostadas are also good.

We've eaten at this restaurant maybe 25 times over the past year. The seasoned chicken is the best in Chiang Mai by far, it's great on the Nachos and in the burritos. Tangy and well marinated. The quality does vary by the dish. I'm not a fan of the quesadillas personally because most of them come with mangos all over... More

I come from America where quality Mexican food is easy to find. I love Mexican food so naturally I sought out a Mexican restaurant in Chiang Mai. the food was better than I expected and it was good but nothing amazing or life changing. the burritos are very big but as with all Mexican restaurants I've encountered in Chiang Mai,...

This is a great place to get some mexican food at a reasonable price. I tried the guacamole, bean-cheese dip, and shrimp quesadilla which were all fantastic.

I thought this evening lets give this restaurant a try. Menu was a bit unclear but prices where low and the waitress spoke good english and could explain everything. Frozen Margerita was not really crushed but 0.6 liter for 249 baht is very cheap. 99 baht nachos with guacomole and salsa. Than we took two plates which were the combination... More

My family had been traveling a month already when we found Salsa Kitchen...so it was time for a change! We ate here twice during our ten day stay in Chiang Mai. We tried the guacamole, chimichangas, nachos and burrito. All were excellent and service was good. I might mention that we also ate Miguel's once...but Salsa Kitchen was the better... More

This is a great place to go if you're missing Mexican food in America. If you're looking for super authentic you won't get that, but you will get food on par with Mexican restaurants in the U.S. I had a combination platter with a mango chicken quesadilla, beef burrito, and chicken enchilada, and all of them were delicious. They have... More

There were four of us and we ordered 3 starters and four mains and the server managed that and the drinks order from memory. Nice work. The place was busy but the food came our relatively promptly although we had to wait for one of the mains for a short time. This isn't the first Mexican i've had in Asia... More

A recent reviewer wrote "Salsa Kitchen used to be the best Mexican in Chiang Mai but over the years have degraded to the point where I can't even eat their food". Sadly I totally concur with that review. What happened to this once great Mexican restaurant? Went with a friend for lunch and ordered the Chicken Enchilada. It arrived only... More

This place was recommended to us by a local so we tried it, and in our 10 day visit to Chiang Mai went back 3 times. The portions are big with a selection for every Mexican taste. Loved the atmosphere and the prices are great value for money.
