My family and I were looking forward to a good Mexican dining experience. Although the food was very good and the place had a good vibe the service and wait staff were very poorly trained. I would have liked to have given a better rating but the inefficient service spoiled the experience. Dishes delivered to our table were erratic and... More

Popped in here as it is near my hotel - read the reviews on here so have it a go. Basic but colourful environment, friendly staff. Very hard to choose something to eat as it all sounds good, I had chicken enchiladas and it was excellent. Very tasty. Food averages at 300 baht and drinks reasonable prices too.

Good Tex Mex fare. Cooked nicely with reasonable price. Service fast and polite. Restaurant is simple and basic. Good for quick stomach filler.

After trying barburritos in manchester,uk it was a struggle to actually find mexican food in bangkok that could match up to the autheticity of barburitos.but trust me in this ,its definitely my favourite here. The chicken nachos and burritos are the best.

I was impressed by their variety of salsas, and I also liked their Guacamole. I had steak burritos for dinner, but I didn't like it that much because the tortillas is so thin. However, I had a bite of my friend tacos it was so good. Next time I will try shrimp and steak tacos

I have lived and worked all over Asia for over 16 years. I'm from California and feel like I have a good palate for Mexican good. LA Monita is by far the most authentic Mexican food I have had in Bangkok and even all of Asia. Their burritos are great and I love the simple taqueria feel.
