The fajitas and chips were great. Service was pretty quick, the only complaint was it was a bit cramped.

Love La Monita! It is the best Mexican for a casual dinner with friends/ colleagues, the ingredients are always fresh and portions are huge. Great atmosphere, love the Branch by Ploenchit!

I went with friends for lunch and although the restaurant was not busy our food came out in dribs and drabs - we almost had to cancel my order as our time was running out - my friends had almost finished their food.

La Monita is a very consistent Mexican restaurant in Bangkok. It is been serving for many years. Always delivering good Mexican food. Here it is guaranteed you can get good tacos as if you were in Mexico DF.

Came here and had an ensalada bowl, accompanied with the nachos supreme; it was really good, considering its mexican food in bangkok! However a little pricey, but besides from that its great.

Finding decent Mexican food abroad is really tough - this place is a very nice surprise. Great food, margaritas and service.

The margaritas were fantastic, but the food was even better! Burritos were giant and filling. This restaurant also had a great selection of craft beer! Many different salsa options at the salsa bar. Best food we had in Bangkok!
