By far the most I spent on anything in Thailand. One meal (with a drink and an appetizer) was over 800 Baht!! It was okay - I was let down because I read so many great reviews of it online and sought it out.

This restorant is hidden in a sidestreet but worth a visit nevertheless. There's a nice atmosphere around and the personel is welcoming. There's a wide variety of choice but go for the mexican foods which was delicious.

It is not easy finding good Mexican food in Thailand but the food at this restaurant was very good. They have a nice happy hour deal for liters of your favorite cocktails. Beef and chicken fajitas were arroy (yummy).
