First off this restaurant is amazing. Not only is it great Mexican food but it's better Mexican food than a lot of places I have been to in America or Mexico. And this is in Thailand! All of the ingredients taste really fresh and we are impressed with the flavors, presentation, and portion size. A lot of "Mexican" places seem... More

It wasn't like having a male in Mexico but pretty damn close considering we're on the other side of the planet in Thailand. Food was really good and the service was pleasant. The prices were reasonable. Only negative I would say is they were out of shrimp. Unfortunately seems common in Thailand for restaurants to be out of items which... More

It's no secret that the food is good. Most North Americans living in Chiang Mai and even in other parts of Thailand will insist this is as close as it gets to Mexican/Tex-Mex. The food is good quality and very reasonably priced for "farang" food. Chips and dips are an extra charge (but good quality chips). We didn't have the... More

There were nine of us and four of us, adults and a couple of very little kids too! There are no high chairs but that didn't matter too much! The food was super...make you smile kind of super! (although more costly than we are used to paying in Thailand!) we can highly recommend the ribs, bean burritos, fruit shakes, refreshing... More

The food is excellent at Salsa Kitchen! I'd call it American-style Mexican. All of the dishes are great; but my favorites are the enchiladas and the fajitas. The chips and guac are a great starter. I see some reviews saying the staff is rude. Not true! FYI to people who are new to Thailand: Thai waitstaff will not keep checking... More

Don't eat here. Overpriced, poor service, staff would rather take selfies, or be on Facebook, when you get their attention for service, it's like how dare you interrupt me. The owner needs to take a good look at the money he is wasting on staff.
