Brilliant burgers and Tex-Mex

Fantastic, fresh, big flavours and great value. A welcomed treat after two weeks of Amok and stir fry! Try the Chilli Chicken or Cheeseburger Supreme.....drooling just thinking about them.

Not too clean, so my wife was not as comfortable as she could have been, but the Mexican food, especially the "wet burrito" with a very generous amount of enchilada sauce and sour cream hit the spot. The Mexican rice was good, and I ordered a double portion of refried beans. Glad I did. The real thing. We would be... More

Food here is reasonably priced and my friends and I spent less than USD10 perperson, including drinks. It was a delicious meal and the hosts were a delight. The meals served were also pretty large so if you're a smaller eater, you could probably share!

I was really excited to eat here, that on finding the restaurant on TripAdvisor and reading the reviews, we jumped in a Tuk Tuk and headed to the restaurant. I was a bit disappointed with my meal, I ordered a vege burrito, the ends were very dry (almost crunchy like a nacho) but the inside was cold/warm (maybe it had... More

Found this restaurant on our last visit and my husband hasn't stopped raving about it so of course we visited again. Pleased to say the food is still excellent. Good size portions and great choice. They have a different special deal each day and of course "happy hour". They make a very good margarita.

The staff was really nice and welcoming. I had the carnitas and pollo hard taco and it was delicious! The ingredients were all so fresh. My boyfriend had the wet burrito, he said it was so good and just wish that it was bigger cause he was left with wanting more. Hahaaa I also had just made it in time... More

Walked out of the Okay Boutique Hotel and heard live music coming from this little place a couple of doors down. Meandered in as we love a band. Wasn't long before they finished, they had been on for 3 hours. Caught the last half hour! Ordered a meal which wasn't too bad, had a couple of drinks and left. A... More

Solid option if you're craving western cuisine - the menu concentrates on tex mex, burgers, etc. Tucked away down a side street and not the easiest place to find.

I have been eating at Alley Cat for about two years, early days there were a few glitches which made me abstain for six months, however I was most pleased to find out that in the inteeerim they had lifted their game considerably. There are some favourites that I have with great regularity as they are basically unique to this... More

Wow. This was seriously one of the best Mexicans of my life. OMG my taste buds are still dancing. This isn't your boring Tex-Mex burrito joint. This is amazing and inspired cuisine. Amazing. So far best meal in our travels for sure.
