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.

Let me start with stating how much I love Mexican food...we have bi-monthly parties at my house dedicated to just tacos! That said, this place is super tasty! During our multiple visits here in Jan./Feb. of 2016 we had delicious chips and guac, tacos, a super burrito, and a chimi smothered in a fiery red sauce and not once were... More

The portions were big. It was delicious and reasonably priced. Tacos comes in soft shell or crispy shells. Various choices on the menu to choose from. Popular with expats.

This place was a nice find. The walls are painted in vibrant colours, which just adds a bit of fun to your dining experience. The food was wonderful. Nice large portions that were a good value for your money. Service was friendly, albeit a bit slow. If you want chips and salsa, they offer a variety of choices for the... More

If you are looking for some good eats this is the place. I have ate at multiple Mexican restaurants in BKK and this is by far the best. Do yourself a favor and eat at the Phleon Chit location, two outlets at Siam Paragon and the Emporium have a limited menu and don't stand up to the original.

I previously had vegetarian items but I decided to branch out into chicken. I ordered the chicken enchiladas which were good until I kept biting into chicken cartilage. I wish they would do a better job of taking the meat off the chicken bones.

Visited La Monita on a Sunday night and I was surprised to find it full - very glad we made a reservation. The colourful interior really adds to the experience and the wait staff are full of smiles. I have to admit that there can be a bit of a wait for your order, but if you order a cocktail,... More

I visited La Monita as a group of 4 for dinner. On the night we visited the restaurant was extremely quiet and there were perhaps 2 other tables eating in the entire place - so the ambiance wasn't exactly buzzing. We ordered the guacamole and some salsa dip for the entree and both arrived promptly and were very tasty. The... More
