This is our 5th time the past 2 months. The lunch experience was better as it wasn't as packed and we didn't have to wait. This trip we waited 20 minutes for table for 3, the servers were non existent because just too much clientele and everyone that works there seemed to be working in the kitchen. We came back... More

Three of us dined at the Taqueria Playa Tropical for dinner. We got there at 7:30 PM and the place was packed with a wait of at least 4 tables ahead of us. I will break it down so you can see where the restaurant was good and where it fell short. Ambiance: The restaurant has low ceilings so if... More

We went here for lunch on a sunny Sunday in New Westminster. The restaurant is divided into two bright and cheery large rooms, with live music on some nights. The overall noise level was high, mainly due to happy and boisterous diners. If you are looking for plush or fussy decor, this is not the place for you. But the extensive menu gives you an idea of...

We were a group of four (2 couples) that came in for a milestone bday dinner. To start service was slow! We must of sat there at least 10-15 min before I asked someone to take at least our drink and appy orders. Things started to improve thereafter. We had the beergaritas (wow, delicious and made us all tipsy!) and... More

I love this place! It's yummy and def the place to go to get your Mexican food fix. It's like being back in Mexico :) they recently extended their restaurant which is nice because they get line ups from time to time. The staff is friendly and always a good experience

I was one of the very first customers to try Taqueria Playa Tropical when they opened almost 2 years ago in New West. We continued to eat there on a regular basis and were happy when they announced the addition of space to allow for more seating and availability. The first two times we visited after the reno were a... More

Great food and price. Felt like we were in Mexico with a Corona and the massive Burrito. My wife had the Fajitas. Both were excellent and we couldn't finish. Service was also good.

Went for dinner with some friends. Food was spectacular and very affordable. They have a drink called tropicalita. ...it's a must. They are expanding, therefore less waiting at the door.

Stopped by for an early dinner and was very happy with the Chicken Tostatas. My husband had the 3 Taco dinner & enjoyed it also. Reasonable price & fairly quick service, because we were ahead of the dinner rush. Was starting to get busy as we were leaving, so go early or be prepared to wait. A friendly, down home... More
