Great little place

We visited as a family and booked a couple of hours before we ate. The staff said it was fine but we needed to be out by 8, which was fine with us. The cafe is small and noisy, but it fits in with the type of food, it's bustling and friendly. The food is good. I'm not sure if... read more

Popped in for lunch at noon, quiet at first but soon got busy. Small, cafe bar but beautifully decorated and a great atmosphere. We started with a Marguerita which was very tasty and strong. Very varied menu with a large range of Tacos, Burritos etc. some very unusual items such as Cactus on the menu. The menu is clearly laid... More

Mexican is one of my favourite cuisines, but I rarely have the chance to eat it as we struggle to find good authentic, tasty Mexican street food in Leeds. My boyfriend booked a table here as a surprise last week and the food blew me away. Tiny restaurant with so much character, great atmosphere, highly recommend.

We discovered Pinche Pinche (or Salsa Mexicana as it was once called) years ago, and used to rave about the food with friends and family. Indeed, we have taken them there, and everybody loved it. But then they changed the menu at the start of 2015. Needless to say, devastated doesn't begin to describe our disappointment. The menu has been... More

Dear Moominmobile Thanks for your review. We changed our menu in November 2014 in response to the popularity of our ‘unusual dishes’, which featured on our specials board throughout last summer. Barbacoa lamb is still on menu as a filling in our quesadillas, sopes and tacos, so I’m unclear which ‘stand out dishes’ you are referring to. The lamb burrito,fajitas... More

We recently discovered Pinche Pinche and for the last three months have visited once a week. The food is fantastic Mexican food, freshly cooked with wonderful service. We are determined to try all the different dishes. So far we have enjoyed everything we have ordered. It really is first class. They have some unusual items on the menu and a... More

This was my first visit to pinche pinche, it was recommended to me by a friend who knows I love Wahaca so thought I would like it. I was not disappointed! Firstly, the margaritas are some of the best I have had in the UK for some time. The choice of food is very good, I am a vegetarian but... More

Small 'restaurant' basic menu basic furnishings. Friendly staff, very cold inside & badly lit. We had the burritos and are currently suffering accordingly. Left the restaurant feeling ill. Service was relatively fast. Child friendly. (But not what you want for a couples meal) wasn't what We were expecting. Overpriced for what we got. Food tasted average, (not spicy for Mexican...

Pinche Pinche is a former Mexican restaurant in a trendy northern suburb of Leeds that has undergone a transformation. It is now a Mexican Tapas restaurant and, as such, is more in tune with the nouveau Mexican cuisine to be found in parts of the USA. I took my 17 year old daughter with me for an Early Bird deal...

I went to Pinche Pinche with a friend on a Friday night with a bit of reluctance. I had been to the same location (different management and name) and had been disappointed. So going back was a bit of a gamble to me. I've been to Mexico before and lived in Southern California for a long time, so I know... More

I have been here a few times now and really like it. It serves good old fashioned Mexican food. The kind of stuff you love to east post hangover or on a winter's evening. The choros are a favourite if you really want to pile on the pounds.
