Good quick lunch, menu and food is good, service can be a bit average. Outdoor area best in summer, inside is too noisy.

Taken here for the very first time as a surprise lunch that had been organised prior. I.m not really into Mexican or hot food but was given a mild dish with tacos, nachoes and cheese like filling dip with a tequila cocktail. Both very strong dish and drink. Premises were quite at the time except a couple of groups outside... More

My husband and I ate here before our movie in Centreplace. While to food was tasty and the service friendly and attentive, the restaurant looks a little tired and lacks real atmosphere. The food was well priced and was delicious to eat. Not bad for a pre movie dinner on the go.

I ate the burrito and the chicken was so much shredded it looked like it has been shewn before, yuck. Tomato Salsa is raw, no flame grilled tomatoes like true authentic salsa. And the burrito was soggy. Never going back.

We had a family lunch on Father's day with kids. Service was super slow. The restaurant wasn't even full and the food took ages to turn up. How long does it take to heat and serve up some nachos, quesadillas and tacos? The portion for a macho nachos was small. Kids menu came with a few corn chips called started... More
