This place is hyped up, overpriced, squishy, and has a rude bar man. It certainly was an experience though - we were here at the right time it seems - everyone said it was hard to get in - but we marched right in at 5:30pm on a Saturday. Loved the Drinks and atmosphere but food was nothing special and... More

A group of 4 went in one a tuesday night and had to wait for 1 hour until a table could be free. The inside was very dark and loud. We ordered a few dishes the waitress recommended - the food was good but all in all, not really worth the price and time

I have been lucky to have visited twice this year and each time they have delivered incredibly tasty vegetarian alternatives.

Margaritas packed a punch, the atmosphere was buzzing, service good and the food was brilliant. We tried many dishes and loved them all, if only all Mexican in Australia could be this good. For some reason all I can think about when I say the word Mamasita is corn... It was a stand out, simple and creative and such good... More

Came in for an early dinner (which was lucky since, even though it was a Tuesday, the place was packed about an hour or so after we arrived) with my family. We all enjoyed the experience, adults and kids (10 and 12) alike. The service was friendly, food was gorgeous and the overall atmosphere nice with a wide variety of... More

Pretty average all round, from the decor to the menu to the food. It's fine, but that's all, nothing special here. Go if you are stuck or have no other place booked. If you're smart go to chin chin.

No reservations therefore you may have to wait for a table on arrival (10 minutes for us on a Wednesday early evening). Friendly staff; very good food (the corn on the cob is a must!); great margaritas. Tip – to finish we did a 3 sample Mescal tasting, with the sommelier doing a marvellous job in talking us through each... More
