This place has great food, we got a share platter which was full of different things. They all tasted great. Our waitress was also very accommodating and the service was awesome.

Tasty, big portions and not expensive. The chimmingas are extremely tasty and the presentation of the food makes the whole eating experience that much nicer. It was not busy when I went. But looks like it can become quite festive when busy.

popped in for lunch only to be the only ones there. Can't for the life of me understand why? Maybe it was the week day or early bird scenario. Service was on point and the meals will make the sun shine on any given day. they were also very accommodating with kids. Absolutely worth a visit.

We were ten people and although very busy in December the staff arranged a seating for us. The place has a nice vibe and we had a very good waiter. Nice Mexican food. Just needs an aircon!
