I went here for lunch as I'm a fan of mexican food and ordered the burrito as its usually a safe choice at any new mexican place I go to. To be honest I have never seen a burrito presented as it was. The plate came out and there was just a small burrito on it. No sides like beans... More

A simple restaurant with Mexican food. Where the price is absurd. By day it is a price, but the night is still double the average food. $ 26.00 one inchiladas ????.

I've eaten at many Mexican restaurants and cafes throughout NZ and rate this the very best! Great food, great service and exceptional value!

I've been here a couple of times and the place is always packed with people for many good reasons. Good food, fast and friendly service, good selection of drinks.

I am a transplant from southern California - I have moved to the land of the Kiwi, and miss Mexican food desperately... Little Mexico did a good job. While no place can beat the small taco shops of San Diego (Rigobertos/Robertos/Adalbertos...), this place was equivalent to any "sit-down" Mexican restaurant I've been to... A little bit of adaptation is needed... More

Unbelievable food and service and the tequila list is to die for over 100 to choose from. We had jalapeño nachos to start and then beef fajitas and chicken enchiladas. All tastes were amazing including the jug of margarita we managed to also consume.

Great atmosphere; great food; great service and good choice of drinks. Be careful of the "death by chilli" spicy source - but as it comes in its own dish you're in charge of your own destiny! If you like Mexican you'll love this.

We spotted this cosy little restaurant as we wandered round the city centre area one afternoon. After looking at the menu, we decided to book for that evening. The welcome from the staff was warm and friendly. We had great difficulty choosing what to eat, there were so many delicious sounding things we fancied. In the end, we decided and... More

I'm a big fan of quesadillas - I have eaten them in Mexico, California, and Texas, but Little Mexico's was hands down the best I've had. The house chili sauce was superb. Very fresh food and great value for money. Service was extremely friendly and fast, and lively Latin music made the experience all the more fun.

Fast service with very friendly staff. Menu is quit similar to a Mexican one, even that probably food isn't. Still, very friendly and cozy place!
