Although sadly, Poppies Lane is now not the main drag in Kuta, TJ's is well worth the walk. The restaurant is gorgeous and hand on heart I have never had better mexican in my life. Went 5 times in our stay of 9 days! Could not fault a thing and could not recommend a better restaurant

I have visited TJ's several times over the past 20 years This time I realised that TJ's is past its use-by date. The cocktails were anaemic, the food ordinary to bad and the atmosphere dated . We ordered frozen margaritas to start, and immediately I noticed the weak flavour My partner didn't want hers so we ordered a pina colada... More

been a couple of trips without a visit. Staff still remembered me and the food was great as always. Great atmosphere, food and staff.... drinks are alright as well. Wear repellent, the pond does mean a few extra mozzies

We came here for lunch on a Saturday and got a table straight away. Service was a little slow but nothing too noticeable. We ordered vanilla milkshakes and received banana flavour, but they were delicious and we were tempted to order another! The enchiladas and fajitas we shared were both delicious. Only suggestion is putting 4 fajitas on the plate... More

Had dinner there the other night (place was all ours at 1700) and loved it~ prices are reasonable, food is good serving size & quite tasty, the frijoles were excellent and it looks like a Mexican restaurant should.... thought we were back in San Diego. Trouble is getting there and finding it. Tough to negotiate Poppies Lane 1!! Chili con... More

We stopped in for dinner at TJ;s Mexican and whilst it was nice, I don't think it was anything special. For starters we had TJ's Nachos, which was really good, and Corn Fritters, which were pretty average. For mains we had Chilli Con Carne and Chicken Fajitas, both of which were very tasty. Give it a go if you want... More

Felt like Mexican, after 2 weeks eating Indonesian food in Lebuan Bajo and Nusa Lembongan, we were going to Laca Laca but decided to stay close to were we where staying, big mistake, food was tasteless microwaved and expensive, we also had a few tequila shots, the highlight of the meal. After asking for and receiving the bill we both... More
