It is very traditional Mexican restaurant. The menu has a nice selection to choose from, the portion are very large, reasonable prices, friendly place and good service. If you looking for best Maxican food in town go to " SUNRISE "

Living in San Diego, Calif. I always loved Mexican food. I've been from one end to the other many times in Mexico. I've been living in Phuket for 15 years and I yearn for quality Mexican food. At last I've found it. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate eating at your restaurant. Over the years I've tried many of your dishes. Everyone of them were excellent. And then to top it off try the pecan or cherry pie. Fantastic! I've never found pie this good in Thailand.

I'm sorry, but this is NOT Mexican food and people who think it is, I really feel sorry for you that you haven't tasted what legit Mexican food taste like. Mexican is not bland and boring as it is from this place. Seriously, stop calling yourselves a Mexican resturant serving Mexican food. I was born and raised in sourthen Ca and eat Mexican almost everyday of my life. Not only eating throughout LA, OC and SD, but so many times during my surf trips to Mexico, I lost count.
I have tried to give them the benefit and have tried it many times, but this time, I have to speak out, because I literally feel like I'm lighting my money on fire. This time I tried their Birria tacos and let me be polite, they were bad, I mean BAD, like as in the worst I've ever had and that if you served this in Mexico or anywhere in Ca, you would be laughed out of the room and would be out of business in a sec. The meat had zero flavor, the corn tortilla had the texture as if they were a year old and the consume was flat and bland as a cup of water. Plus, NO cheese, who doesn't put cheese on a Birria Taco? Don't get me started on their salsa.
Stop calling your bland food Mexican food, you are giving it a bad name. So, soo, sooo bad. For those that think this is good, I feel sorry for you as well.

Sometimes people don’t like our food. It happens and we try to make it right.

However when someone attacks us with the wrong facts, then we must set the record straight. If you lived in Mexico or California then you know two types of birria tacos. One with the meat, cilantro and onions and the tortilla is half grilled with chili oil. These are Mexican street tacos. A search on Google images will show this to be the case. The menu states this as well, no cheese. This is what you read or may of ordered. The second type is what is called Birria QuesaTacos. Quesa meaning cheese. These are fried in chili oil on the grill with cheese on top of the meat and cilantro and onions. These Birria tacos all are with cheese. These are the bomb.

As for the Consomé, group of five Mexicans ( two being Mexican chefs ) all had it the other night. They all shouted “ Mexico “ when they had it. Hundreds of guest have had it and would laugh at this comment of cup of water. The corn tortilla is in fact freshly made nixtamal from corn kernels. The birria is slow cooked for four hours in guajillo and Pasilla chilies. It’s magical. Most every guest drinks it from the cup. It’s the best part, the consome.

Please do dine in, order the beef Quesa tacos with Consomé. If it’s not like California or Mexico, you won’t be charged ever for your dish.

Every person I know that has grown up in the same area as you, the Consomé and QuesaTacos is identical or even better.

As for your review. You are entitled to your opinion even if you were a competitor or friend of one. However, it’s insulting to other reviewers to question their taste and comments. Anyone that taste our birria will know these comments you made are far from reality. That’s life as not all views are the same and some are outright frivolous.

This sums it up well. A guy who grew up in the USA in the Mexican food business. His dad owns three Mexican restaurants there. "I had the pleasure of eating at Sunrise Tacos and having Birria Tacos. Honestly guys, the tacos were great but their consommé is ridiculously tasty. The layers of flavoring from the beef and the guajillo chiles is insane. This broth isn’t a bouillon cube mixed with water. This is authentic beef broth stewed for hours, resulting in one of the best Birrias I’ve ever tasted. Thank you Greg!"
