One of the few proper restaurants in Bangkok that is reasonably priced. Good atmosphere, good food and mixed drinks were 130 baht which is a good deal. The food actually comes with the proper sides such as rice, beans and sour cream but not guacamole (but fair enough because avocados in Bangkok are expensive even at super markets). The owner...

Dear Kevinjapan13 Many thanks for your review. Price is subjective, but I feel we're very reasonable compared to other similar places in this area. You're correct about the guacamole. The price of imported avocados is too high to add it to every dish. About 30% of people don't like guac and we'd be throwing that away which would increase the... More

Food, staff and atmosphere - amazing. If I return to Bangkok Charley Browns will be the first place I visit. Well run business providing quality food (the best Mexican food I have ever tried). The staff were attentive helping to bring a lovely vibe to the restaurant. Definitely one to visit if you are ever near!!

The new restaurant is fabulous - bigger than the S11 one and slightly closer to the BTS (Asoke station now not Nana) so easier to get to and stagger home from! Still the best margaritas and sangria in Bangkok. And the fastest free wifi I have experienced in a restaurant. I'd urge all visitors to Sukhumvit to try this place... More

This place was awesome and the passion fruit margarita was to die for! We stumbled upon this place on Trip advisor and when we went we ran into the co-owner. He was super nice and very helpful on what we should eat. The food was great and I would definitely visit again!

A mixed bag. The staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. That includes the manager who I thought did a good balancing act between caring and interrupting. The free chips and salsa is a nice touch to start with too. The beef and cheese dip is really good but the beef fajitas were tough and lacking flavour. Perhaps chicken... More

Description
We're Bangkok's oldest and best loved Mexican restaurant. For 25 years, we've been providing top quality food and drinks to locals and tourists alike.

Great for parties or dates. We recently moved to a newer, bigger location close to the Asoke junction on Sukhumvit Soi 19.

We have a Kids' Curfew after 8.30pm. The restaurant becomes more like a bar and it's not suitable for young children.

Last orders for food is 11pm

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.
