This was not Mexican but had some of the ingredients like refried beans. The worst attempt at Mexican I've had in Thailand! Tasted like Japanese light! Won't be back.

My favorite dish worldwide is Chile Relleanos and was very good as very difficult to find in Thailand. The Fresh chips with Guacamole was perfect. No AC and service was average but will certainly return for my Chile Relleanos.

We were looking to quench our craving for margaritas, refried bean and all things Mexican. We were not disappointed when we dropped in at Mike's! The setting is classic Thai open air, the service and food was very good. Cudos to the management for staying loyal to the Tex Mex recipes, and not adapting them to local tastes. We fully... More

I'd have liked to eat a tex-mex dish, but i ate a frozen something dish. The staff were ok, but the enchillada was impossible to eat. Maybe I chose the wrong day to eat in this restaurant for this I don't give just one star.

As a native Texan who grew up eating Mexican and Tex-Mex, I've got to say that this was just awful. I ordered a Mexican platter with enchilada, burrito and taco, and my wife ordered the steak fajitas. While I was hoping for something resembling the inside cover of ZZ Top's Tres Hombres album, what we received was something closer akin... More

If you like Mexican food, Mikes is the place to go.It is hard to find down a side soi but look for the sign on Thappraya Road.Good service and value for money.

I visited Mike's because I was in the neighbourhood and had a craving. The location is very "backstreet" but they have put some effort into the design creating a very pleasant place to eat that belies the surroundings. I read all the previous reviews and on balance their rating of 4-4.5 is very fair (I couldn't work out how to... More

I grew up eating Mexican food in California, I love me a good burrito. Unfortunately here in Thailand, good Mexican food is very hard to come by. Few Mexican places to start with, and most of those simply dont have the flavor profile right. I've been here 4.5 years now, and in that time I have had some bland and... More

When you're craving Mexican after a hard day's night in Pattaya or just need to get away from the Jomtien serenity; Mike's Tex Mex is the place you want to get! This outdoor gem is hidden in plain sight at the beginning of Tappraya Soi 5 like a bad kept secret. The service is fast, attitude Mexican, food is great... More
