We have been regular visitors, and I mean once every five days, for the last nine months.

Always a friendly greeting for regulars or newcomers and cannot do enough for you.

They love the children and make them feel special everytime we come.

The food is fantastic, fresh and always tastes great!! Taste is wonderful and the servings are perfect.

We cant recommend Taqueria Corona high enough!! It is the best Mexican in Phnom Penh.

And Will always has some 50s to 70s cool surf or blues music playing in the background.

After two weeks of Asian cuisine I was keen to try some good old Mexican comfort food. This restaurant was close by to our hotel and had read some good recent reviews. Arrived for tea and greater by lovely staff. Service was prompt and food and drinks served quickly. Margaritas were spot on and all food served was yum yum. Highly recommend this place for a quick fix of comfort food and good atmosphere.

I walked into this restaurant craving a burrito. There are at least two other Mexican restaurants in Phnom Penh and several others who serve Mexican food. Trying to find a restaurant that serves a half way decent burrito is hard to find. Many of the owners just look on the internet and decide to copy a recipe. They have no experience in cooking Mexican food, hence the poor Mexican food in town. One restaurant didn't even know what salsa was.

You won't find that here. Despite having a somewhat Mexican theme, hard to get Mexican items in town, the customer service is one of the best in any restaurants. I think the girls actually asked my name and know it despite only going to the restaurant 3-4 times now. The owner came over and introduced himself to me. His wife trains all the staff on how to talk to customers, take orders and more. Now that is good.

The owner has been in the restaurant business for several years and knows how to cook. You won't be able to say that with other restaurants in town.

Back to the food, I saw the prices and I thought a little high, but when my burrito arrived it was just not one, but two and decent size. They have home made hot sauce and a variety of food for Mexican food afficiando's. I was in Heaven when I saw the tortas on the menu.

You will not find a better Mexican restaurant in town. In fact, go on Sunday night and see if you can find a seat. The place is packed the food is so good.

It's hard to find good Mexican food in Asia... Taqueria Corona is not good Mexican food but considering its geographic location, it's pretty decent.
