I recently visited this restaurant and was greatly pleased. It's located near LMU in an upscale location in the Plays Vista area of Los Angeles. Very easy to get to and good parking. Excellent selection of Mexican style food and seafood. Nice atmosphere to relax and have a great meal. Prices are reasonable. This is an up scale restaurant that anyone would truly enjoy!

Saw some pretty good reviews about this restaurant so we decided to try it out for dinner.
They were pretty busy on a Sunday night. Decided to sit at the bar and order food there. Staff and bartenders were very friendly and helpful in getting our orders. They first gave us chips and salsa. Two different salsas. One was the traditional salsa given at most Mexican restaurants, but the other was a black bean warm and blended salsa that was very good. Unfortunately, it was the only really good dish we ate. The carnitas had no flavor, not very tender and lots of fat on the meat. The Tacos were just ok. Rice and beans were nothing special. There are many excellent Mexican restaurants in the South Bay. This is not one of them. The food is just ok. The prices are are a little high and the parking is an issue.
I will not go out of my way to go back to this place.

The server (Josie) was wonderful and really good with our large disorganized group. the food was great and the kids finished their meals!! The ceviche is fresh and spicy, if you request it that way. And, if you're not driving, the margaritas are really tasty. A wonderful place to eat in lovely Playa Vista.

Restaurant is located in a beautiful mall near LMU. Nice and relaxing environment where movie stars walk among us. We saw Milo O’Shea the star of This is Us. The restaurant offers variety of dim sum and Chinese Asian food. Very tasty food, good service and reasonably priced. We really enjoyed the food. We will surely comeback next time that we are in the area.
