The Salsa Kitchen has an amazing selection of food and drinks. I ordered the wrapped grilled chicken burrito, and my girlfriend ordered the mango chicken quesadilla - both fantastic! The next day I had the same burrito again (it is really quite good), and she ordered soft shell chicken tacos with avocado. The amount of avocado that they placed on... More

I go the SK 2-3 times a month. Fresh, fresh, fresh. Good service. Love the re-fried black beans, best anywhere. San Francisco mission burrito is fantastic. the coffee is a small miracle and serviced with half and half. Always have 2 cups. Serving are large. Menu is frequently updated to stay current.

I've come here at least a half a dozen times since moving to Thailand. The food is absolutely amazing; Mexican but with a bit of a Thai twist. Everything is reasonably priced, especially compared to the other Mexican restaurants in Chiang Mai (99 baht margs, yum!). I've tried almost everything, from the burritos to the tacos to the quesadillas. I... More

While our food here was tasty (we ordered different tacos on corn), the service made us decide that we won't be going back again. Everything took forever. Our glasses were never refilled and we never once had someone come to see if we needed anything, we even had to walk to the kitchen to tell them we wanted our check.... More

I came here for lunch and I was happily surprised at how delicious their fish tacos were. The batter is super light and crispy and the oil they use to fry it in must be really fresh. The pork tacos were just as tasty. They make their own corn tortillas and you can tell because they are fantastic! The guacamole... More

This restaurant has some ballin' Mexican food. It was sooooo good. Everything from the black bean dip to the smothered burrito was on point. The salsas they give you are all delicious in their own ways. But the star of the show was the Baja fish tacos. Oh my goodness. Those tacos sang songs of tasty triumphs in my mouth.... More

I've never been to Mexico but I hear the food there is way better than any Mexican food anywhere else in the world. Thus I can't really give this place 5 stars. The food was decent with lots of additional accompaniments to go with it. I ordered a chimichanga which was a mistake because, you know, deep fried eww, but... More

The food here is amaaaaazing if you are a lover of Mexican food and need your fix while in Asia! The restaurant itself is not much to look at, but it makes up for it in yummy food :)

This is, perhaps, the best Mexican restaurant we've eaten at in Southeast Asia. The tacos and the taquitos are my favorite dishes. I could probably eat here four times a week while I'm in Chiang Mai (and I love Mexican food and have traveled extensively in Mexico). The prices are a bit higher for Chiang Mai, but this restaurant is... More
