I visited Noche Mexicana on a Saturday around lunchtime for some tacos since I had eaten from there once before. I ordered five tacos: 3 steak tacos with just cheese and two tacos with everything (one chicken & one steak). The just cheese ones were for my daughter since she isn't a fan of loaded tacos. We ordered our food... More

My husband and I were looking forward to having Mexican food again in the States, the last time being in LA. We wondered if NY would live up to our memory, and this restaurant did not disappoint. We enjoyed enchiladas, tacos, with extra guacamole with cold beer. The service was great too. Would definitely recommend.

Every Friday (well nearly) we order tacos and guacamole & chips from these guys. They arrive fresh and hot every time. The food is fresh, well prepared and frankly excellent. Occasionally we get nachos or the soup and again, excellent. Sometimes we eat in and the service is great, friendly, fast and good. Most Mexican food in NYC is 'faux'... More

Ok. So I really did not think it was possible to mess up mexican food. But this place managed to do so. It was just rather bland tasting. Nothing terrible, just not good. This is the first time a mexican resturant has dissopointed. But to be frank. At the end of my meal, I was unsatisfied. It's cheap but that's... More

Spectacular Mexican food in a simple ambience. Homemade dishes, fresh ingredients, traditional food. It is Mexico in NY.

Ok, this isn't some quintessential NY establishment, but it was filled with families who lived in the neighborhood. The food was delicious and the service was solid. Best of all, the price was extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity.

Astonishingly fabulous Mexican food with friendly service. Vast offerings, and we have not yet scratched the surface of what they have on the menu. A real find.
