Slightly cramped seating but don't worry the food makes up for it! The buffet has a nice variety and is good value for money. fajitas are delicious and enjoy the endless glass of lemon ice tea. A nice afternoon meal !

The food is excellent, great Mexican food the only warming is the portion sizes, they are massive, I was full after the chilli nachos and that was a starter and I am a big eater, well worth a visit, the staff are so nice and guide you through the spices if you want it, I will be back

The area Elgin Street was really good. The place is full of restaurants. The restaurant is cramped and food is average. I found it slightly expensive for the kind of ambience and setting.

The Mexican food in Hong Kong is very limited so it is nice to get it when you can, especially for someone born in the Southwestern USA. The guacamole is definitely the best in Hong Kong and the quesadillas were very good. Surprisingly, the rice and beans were excellent with tacos bit the shells were overstuffed and soggy on the...

Cozy little Mexican in charming Soho. The staff was very nice and fast! The food was good and in nice quantity. I went on a week day, and there was not a lot festive spirit...I'm sure it´s a lot livelier on the weekend. Expect to pay between 30 to 40 euro per person, if you have a couple of margaritas....

Fresh tortillas, chicken and fish plus a make your own nachos with all the fixings. If you are looking for casual dining with a comfortable setting. This is the place. It is fairly small... More

It's recommended to make reservation especially for dinner as space is limited. Two of us came on time and started eating, another two came a bit later to join us. We were questioned at least twice if the other two were coming. Personally the portion is a little bit too big for female, but food is good so I couldn't... More

We went for the lunch buffet. In under a 100 HKdollars, the meal included a buffet lunch, ice tea with free refill and a chocolate brownie for dessert. The buffet included an some salads, dips for nachos, beans, fried chicken, tortillas with chicken and pork. The food wasnt extraordinary but good nonetheless. The staff were a bit slow on refills....

The tables are very close together as the layout is limited. The food comes out quickly with good portion size and good taste. It's hard to find good Mexican food in Asia! The drinks are very good as well. They have a wide selection of tequilas.

Went recently with my children and we had a fun evening. Service was excellent, friendly and attentive. Food was ok but not particularly outstanding - standard Mexican fare but the children really liked it. Great margaritas that arrived quickly and slipped down well ! Biggest drawback of this place is the lack of space. Fine if you are against the... More
