I was in HK for 3 weeks on business and built up the craving for Mexican. This place was a great cure. It is a nice sit down traditional restaurant. Will you think you are in Tijuana? No, but you will still get great Mexican food and be a whole lot safer then TJ. I am a Chimichanga aficionado and... More

Stopped in without reservations on a Friday after work. Brief wait, and ended up with a table all the way in the back...(try and get a seat in the main area)...our first part of the meal was beef/steak nachos which was quite tasty and good portion. The meal headed south when we ordered soft shell tacos and a burrito. They... More

As an American, we are spoiled for choices when it comes to Mexican cuisine; however, finding good Mexican options in Hong Kong can prove challenging. Invariably, it comes down to the good, the bad, and the downright ugly (no names here...can see my other review)!! Thankfully, Caramba! falls into the good category, which means that it's likely to become one... More

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....

We accidently found this place while we were trying to avoid a thunderstorm. They have a lunch buffet for under 100 HKD. It was very good. 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
