This place is good for some cheap tasty Mexican. We had the quesadilla with corn chips a guacamole which were good. We also had the enchilada but it was a bit soft so I don't recommend that dish however it was still tasty.

Went here twice for lunch. Stand outs were the bao on the starter menu, the fish tacos were decent too. Cold water was appreciated on a hot day!
