As a family we love Mexican food and have visited Chiquito several times at lunchtime when going to the cinema at Festival Leisure Park. Although the food is very nice, the service is so incredibly, glacially slow that we have decided we can't take the stress of wondering if/when the food is going to arrive.

I haven't been here for ages, but used to visit very regularly and was always a fan! The soft-shell tacos were my favourite, not sure if they still do them. Staff were always very friendly and food was always lovely.

The fiery chicken was soooo good and hot. If you don't like got spicy food then don't select this item. Had another meal there a few days later and it was also very good. Dark and Stormy drink is delicious!

Cocktails at this restaurant are of very good quality - especially the frozen ones. However, the food quality is relatively poor and not very hot when it reaches the table. Waiter seemed quite unhappy, so the service was not really the best.

Stopped by here after a plane journey back from Cyprus, was a well needed rest and lunch after a 6 hour journey! The man who served us, appeared to be the manager, with glasses, was extremely friendly and positive, had a great attitude. Brought us some chilli popcorn to get us going as he put it and was great throughout... More

Generally choose this restaurant, if we're in Bas Vegas to watch a film. It's pretty standard Tex Mex, but it always does the job. The Fajitas are excellent (don't touch the dish!!!!), but there's a nicely varied menu. Prices are ok; although we generally add to the bill by partaking of the wine. The all-important friendly staff are always up... More

We like the faitijas, but believe you should get more than a little pot of salsa, sour cream and cheese to go in a wrap. To be then be charged extra for another little pot seems a rip of to me for something that should be part of the meal in the first place. A shame as the food is... More
