This is my second visit to the restaurant . I find that they have added new items to the menu and service was just as good. For starters, I ordered mushrooms sautéed with garlic and chile guajillo. It was tangy, a little spicy and extremely yums. The crabmeat quesadilla was moist and tasty, and went very well with my 84-year... More

Whoever hired the staff did a great job. It was nice to sit down at a non-high end restaurant (a normal eatery) in Singapore and have great service. I know that sounds a bit high and mightly, but Singaporeans and non Singaporeans alike, in Singapore, all voice the same complaints about the low level of service at restaurants. Guacamole was...

Have travelled and never found a Mexican restaurant that does chicken dish like margaritas chicken. Vivian the owner takes a lot of care in preparing this dish, mixing her own marinade. Worth every morsel.

We came here on a childless date night. My wife had shrimp tacos and she loved them. I had the kitchen sink burrito and it was fantastic. It was actually gigantic and I took 1/2 home to eat as leftovers. We each had a margarita and split a 3rd. They were $19 each.. which seems a bit high, but they... More

Margarita 's is my favourite "go to "place for tasty tempting food. The cocktails and mocktails are fun too. We were celebrating a birthday and the owner gave us a lot of personal attention and recommended several dishes which were off menu. For this reason, without cake or candles our dad enjoyed his 83 rd birthday dinner. Also I love... More

Checked out the menu which looks great for a Mexican inspired meal. My margarita was just the right size and mix. We weren't in the mood for mexican but would give it a chance if returning.

The neighborhood is packed with colorful shops, local characters, and quiet charm. The main streets overflow with diners enjoying katong laksa, the signature Peranakan spicy noodle soup. Signs of youthful entrepreneurship are visible as well, with modern cafes, bars, and shops abounding.
