Atmosphere is great casual mexican restaurant, friendly service, prices reasonable good selections on menu for vegetarians and for people who may not like Mexican food. Every time we come to Bali we always make sure we have a meal here.

We hadn't been to TJ's since about 1991 - was a bit quiet in early December (like everything in Kuta at this time of year), but we got fast service, and the food was nice. Seems a lot like a Mexican restaurant in Perth, but the inside still looks like it did back in the 1980s and 90s, but its... More

Not authentic Mexican but delicious nonetheless! Dedicated bartenders who make excellent drinks (proper frozen ones too). Atmosphere is very cozy and relaxed. Order off the 'specials' menu (maybe $8-10 an entree - expensive by Indonesian standards but very tasty).

Having read the reviews of fellow diners on tripadvisor, we headed to TJ's with high expectations and we were not disappointed.Being strangers to Mexican fare, we ordered the beef fajitas and chicken tostadas which were recommended.The spicy soup we had was flavourful and seasoned perfectly. A meal consisting of 2 mains, 1 soup and 2 drinks did not burn a... More

I'm always suspicious of different cultures good in Asia but TJ's was a great experience. Nice Mexican food in a classic Bali semi garden setting.

I took some friends to TJs in November and they were blown away with the ambience, food and their famous margaritas. TJs is an indoor/ outdoor restaurant with a beautiful fishpond and garden. We had a couple of rounds of drinks at the large and comfortable bar and then adjourned to a table for dinner. The cuisine is Mexican and... More

Tasty meal, great location and ambience, friendly staff. Drinks at a good price. The ribs were tender and tasty and sides were fresh and well presented.

Some of the best mexican food around. Value for money for sure. Make sure you take your Mozzie spray as the mosquitos are everywhere. The food is good and the service is crap. Don't blink after you order as your food will be on the table before your drinks. If you are going to get there after 5pm book a... More

This place was ok, I wouldn't write home about it. We had to wait a while for our meal though. It ticked me off that there were inconsiderate smokers inside once again, but if the staff aren't brave enough to cut it out and tell them to smoke outside then I probably won't go back again. However, this issue is... More
