Family fun at TJ's

We love tj's for its easy laid back atmosphere and the fantastic staff. Food is good but we go for the experience at the end of the day. Staff go out of their way for you.

We have visited several times and will continue to do so. The food is well priced, the service is great and the setting with trees and the pond is just so relaxing. It's a hidden gem and when inside you feel miles away from Poppies 1 as it's so serene. Thank you again for a delicious meal, cold drink and... More

I love mexican food so have visited tjj's several times. While they do a great chilli con queso and amazing cocktails, their main meals are pretty average. It is always very busy here so wise to book and why I don't dislike it, there are better in Bali.

A must visit restaurant when we're in Kuta; we really enjoy the ambience and art works, then there's the food! This time we went with the daily special; three courses and a drink for 175,000 Rs. Great value, several choices and very tasty.

This is a popular resteraunt but we weren't impressed with the food. The tableware wasn't up to standard and our meals weren't good. Meals were soggy. Staff were fine. It's not an authentic Mexican restaurant.

The serves are small, but the prices low, so in a way, I liked it as I could get a few dishes to try. The food for me was good, but a little bland. I like MILD food, and even I thought everything could do with a bit more spice, or at least serve a side salsa that is hot... More

We had an amazing dinner here.was nice to break up the traditional indonesian dishes we had been eating. We both ordered nachos, followed by the combination plate of a taco and an enchilada. We were both extremely satisfied with the food and will definitely be going back. The meals we had werent spicy but had the option of adding chilli... More

Great tasty food, prompt service. Will need to revisit their menu to continue to compete in an ever developing restaurant scene. The décor is becoming a little dated
