We tried to have lunch here on Saturday, 30 January. The basic tables and chairs were still there in the middle of the shopping centre but the supporting equipment which is usually just covered locked were not there. There was also a sign on the...More

Hubby always asks for the ribs when we visit the restaurant. He loves it. Any dishes with spicy beef is really good too, but it can be a bit too spicy for some people. The location is a bit odd but considering its good food...More

I really fancied Mexican food so thought i'd give it a try. The restaurant badly needs some work doing do it, it looks old and shabby and seriously lacks any atmosphere whatsoever. It reminds me of a school canteen. The food was of atrocious quality...More

Went with some friends, expected a somewhat bustling and basic restaurant. Instead, a pleasantly furnished area with banquettes in the middle of a small shopping mall. Quiet and not very busy -- a bad sign, but -- mirabile dictu -- welcoming and attentive hosts, really...More

We had read the reviews but couldn't believe Mexican food would be that hard to do. My sister had the tacos which were acceptable although the beef was ground not shredded. I chose a small serve of nachos which came as a thick covering on...More

Pleasantly surprised considering the reviews on TA. We are not aficionados of Mexican food so maybe that's the difference. We really enjoyed our meals. The ribs could have been more tender but the burritos and chimichangas were good. The sangria was refreshing with a great...More
