Having lived in Asia for many years, we were not expecting great Mexican food, but this was terrible. My quesadilla had no cheese in it. The taco salad was just lettuce and tomatoes in a limp tortilla. The margarita was toooo sweet. The staff were...pleasant, though. I recommend getting tacos from the street vendors instead.More

The birria is the best ever! I eat it SO much hahaa. I just tried it with corn tortilla which cost a little more which is fine but actually the original recipe with flour tortilla is INCREDIBLE. Highly recommend!

This is the most bland boring Mexican food I have ever eaten. The blackened fish was dried out, and the chicken absolutely lacking flavour. I have no issue with the small soft tacos the two meats were served on but felt completely underwhelmed based on...the reviews. How they rate so highly does my head in, clearly false reviews.More

Good food and ok atmosphere. Try the fish tacos. They were out of all but 2 desserts (no chocolate flan came which I was looking forward to) and it took forever for them to make a latte. Don't order to chips and salsa. Kind of...tasteless. Best part wa watching the street scene outside the restaurant.More

Do not come here if you are gluten free. They have like 2 options on the non-breakfast menu. They only use flour tortillas. Super disappointed.

Cute little place with a small but good menu. Refreshing to see a small menu with just a couple of dishes executed well. Less is more. Good tortilla. Delicious stuffing. Well done!

Food was better than average for Mexican-style food in Asia. I have lived in Asia for about 20 years and have visited any and all restaurants of this type for that comfort food (from New Mexico, USA). I tried the huevos rancheros w/ chorizo and...would give it an 8/10. I had the tostada which was pretty good, too. So, I think 4 out of 5 hits the target for the food. From the other reviews, sub-par service hasn’t seemed to figure in on experiences by others that much but on this day for us, it wasn’t good (order forgotten, wrong ordered delivered, inattentive). All in all, a cozy place that had potential but didn’t live up to the reviews for us. Maybe it will for you as the food was better than you might think. The owner certainly seemed nice.More

My apologies if our service didn't meet your expectations. We have been operating with a reduced staff due to the effects of Covid19 on tourism in Pai, and subsequently were a little overwhelmed over the holiday period. I apologise for this. I am, however, very...More

Real Mexican food and True to Mexico. Amazing coffee blend created by the business. I cant believe I found a dish called “chicken Mole” it is a chicken stew hard to find anywhere but mexico and I have never seen it in a Mexican place...in Uk let alone Thailand. The owner has travelled to central and south America to source her ingredients and is full of passion when it comes to food. Not a formal place so is a cool place to hang out, get some Mexican food or even some coffee/ snacks! EVERYTHING IS HOME MADE AND AMAZING. Love you guys ✌️More
