Food was tasty and well presented, however nothing amazing and quite expensive for the size. Took fairly long to order on a quiet Saturday, but staff were friendly and polite.

We felt like Mexican but wanted it at home and decided to give MF a go - absolutely fantastic! They do have dine - in but if you really want to get your hands dirty and enjoy the food, take it home!

We visited impromptu on Valentine’s day for a late lunch/ early dinner. The dishes ordered were made fresh and the portions were generous, although the dishes did not offer enough true Mexican heat and flavour. After adding some fresh chilli and some heated sauces, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The service was very slow. Ideal for those who like fresh... More

I love the mexican food from Mexican Fresh. It's nice to have Mexican food as an alternative to all the regular kinds of restaurants found in SA.

The restaurant is squeaky clean, the host pleasant enough. We ordered the baha chicken burrito and chicken tacos. Man, that is real taste of mexican cuisine. the taco was crispy and tasty,... More

I read about this little restaurant and decided to try it out one day after work. Everything was fresh, very tasty and the portions were generous. I recently ordered a take away feast for my friend's visit - a bit of this and a lot of that. Everything was well packaged, delicious and well priced. Love the burritos and the... More

The menu presentation takes you back to kindergarden.There is a rich variety of food choices.I like the tacos and quesadilla , great mix of beef, prawn, chicken and grilled vegetables. I don't know what they put on that guacamole, it's so delicious. The food is not... More

The place doesn't look like much but the food is super. We ordered nachos, buffalo wings, jalapeno poppers, fajitas, tacos, burittos and chili con carne. Everything was awesome and tasty and service was pretty good too. All in all the best mexican food we have had in Jozi.
