If you're in Bangkok and you have a hankering for Mexican food, this restaurant is definitely worth checking out. The quality of the food is great. Perhaps the intensity of the flavor is a bit less than I'm used to, but our dishes were absolutely delicious. The margaritas were yummy as well!

The food is decent but not exactly the Mexican flavor that I'm used to. It is a good change of pace if you've been only eating thai food for a while though. Also a little pricey.

I've been to Tacos and Salsa a half dozen times. It's my favorite simple Mexican restaurant in Bangkok. If you're looking for fancy dishes, this isn't the place. It's all about comfort food here. Chips, a selection of salsas, guacamole, and a D-licious healthy chicken burrito = my favorite dishes The only complaint - online it says they open at... More

Having seen the favorable reviews we were eagerly anticipating the joys of finding a good Mexican restaurant that we could return to again and again. Believing it to be best to make a reservation to ensure a table we did so. Upon arrival we saw only about 4 tables occupied. At the entrance we waited to be seated and no... More

So after being in Thailand for a month I really started to get a hankering for good ole Mexican food. After searching and reading review after review, I decided to check out Taco's and Salsa. GREAT SUCCESS! Best Mexican food in Bangkok and (possibly?) Asia!Everything was excellent. I tried all the salsas, some of which were pretty hot so watch... More

Hands down, the best Mexican food you'll find in Bangkok. The fare is fresh and authentic, and can be had just as hot as you like! The place is small and the wait can be lengthy on a weekend night, so plan accordingly. It's a cozy, not-too-brightly lit atmosphere and can be a little loud if you're looking for a... More

Atmosphere is authentic as owner is Mexican, service is fast, food tastes wonderful. Fried prawns tortillas and chicken burrito were amazing, make sure you order guacamole and salsa set as well so you can add up these for your dishes to become even more tastier, spicy and juicy! I hardly recommend and if I was living in Bangkok this would... More

Having read all the reviews on trip advisor decided to check this place out and what a disappointment, for starters our nachos came with sliced olives (yes olives!) instead jalapeños. Extra charges for sides (sour cream & jalapeños which never arrived! Our food arrived within 5-6 minutes which, is never a good sign - food was thrown together, dry and... More

Have lived in Bangkok for 1,5 year and fancy Mexican food. Took a while before I found this gem, but it's by far the best Mexican I've had in bkk so far. Margaritas are tasty (and strong) and the enchiladas and fajitas really awesome. Try their prawn toscadas and salsa mix. Today we also had awesome live music.

Description
Found 5 minutes walking distance from the beginning of Sukhumvit Soi 18, Tacos & Salsa is a hidden Mexican gem in the busy city of Bangkok. A favourite to expats and tourists as well as locals, at Tacos & Salsa we pride ourselves in serving authentic traditional Mexican home-cooked food that "brings Mexico to you". "Mi casa es su casa"

Famous for flavourful sizzling Fajitas: marinated boneless steak/chicken or prawns with grilled peppers, guacamole, tortillas, beans and rice, served on a hot plate, all our recipes are prepared as if we were back home in Mexico.

Best strong margaritas in town, classic (lime). honey lime, passion fruit, mango, strawberry, tamarind, or spicy diablo. We also offer Margochelas which are margaritas topped off with a Corona beer!

A selection of 45+ Tequilas and Mezcal! Salud!

Local and Mexican craft beers, make them into Micheladas, by adding our special spicy Mexican tomato mix!

Taquitos de carnitas or pork al pastor have that Mexican street-stall taco taste, and are best accompanied with our 5 homemade salsas.

Come join us for a flavourful, chill-out Mexican time from 11am to 11pm, daily, we may even have live music on the weekends!

For table reservation or more information on group party hosting (our second floor is able to host 25-30 people), please feel free to contact us.

Staying in Sukhumvit

Neighbourhood Profile
Sukhumvit
With a mix of shopping malls, hip bars and food stalls lining both sides of Thailand’s longest road, you’ll rarely encounter a dull moment along Sukhumvit. While the main road itself doesn't offer a lot in terms of entertainment, it's the adjoining 'sois' (alleys) where the magic happens. Popular spots are soi 11 for a lively night out, soi 4 for naughty nightlife and soi 21 for world-class shopping at Terminal 21. It's hard to cover everything this area has to offer in on day, so be sure to take your time. Sukhumvit is heavily congested with traffic during day and night, so getting from A to B is most convenient using the BTS Skytrain right above it.
