Great food, service not so great.

My husband and I went to TJ's for dinner one night, we were sitting at the bar where one of the barman was very friendly. Whilst sitting there chatting with him it became quite obvious that another barman was talking about us in Bahasa in a derogatory tone. That was fine, then door staff outside... read more

By far my favorite restaurant in Bali. Fabulous food and atmosphere. Staff was friendly and so nice. You must eat there if your in the Kuta area.

Coming from southern California, this restaurant was a huge disappointment. To be honest, it was so bad I wouldn't recommend this to anyone if you want Mexican food. The reviews were misleading. I should have known since most of them were written by people who have never had real authentic Mexican food. The pro was there were plenty of seating... More

TJ's Mexican has the best Mexican food I have ever eaten. I have been to TJs at least 5 times within the past 4 years and every time it has been beautiful food, fast friendly service and a good atmosphere. I highly recommend heading to TJs when you are around the Kuta area.

After reading all the reviews we decided to head down Poppies Lane to give it a try, and we are glad we did. The food was nice and fresh and the atmosphere made you felt like you were in a piece of Mexico in the heart of Kuta. Worth a try for all Mexican Food Lovers..

Might be ok for dinner, but breakfast was not worth it. The 'fresh' fruit juice tastes like a fridge :( toasts worth the egg were more like a breadcrumb, service was bad. They won't see me here again.

Like Poppies, TJ's has been one of our favourites for the last 3 decades, and we continually go back. It's comforting to see the superb bar staff ageing gracefully, and having them knock up the superb Margaritas is a joy, as it was when here in my 30's, for my 40th and 50th and hopefully for at least th next...

Going based on some of the reviews we had high hopes for this restaurant. We were greeted warmly and I was excited to see that the menu had some items marked as "gluten free". But there were very few items that were gluten free and some dishes you would normally expect to be gluten free were not which confused me... More

We come here every visit, reasonable prices, great atmosphere & friendly staff. There is a kids menu too with many choices. My husband had the combo which was delicious. I had the chicken mole dish, yum. Very fast & fresh dishes. Bring mozzie spray if you are prone to being bitten.
