Tasty!

TJ's is very stylish Mexican with comfortable interiors on a good spot on Poppies. Food was good although not that spicy as I like my Mexican and service was fast and polite. Prices are on a higher side, but I found them to be ok for the quality.

Every time we go to Bali we go to TJs but this year was a disappointment. The food wasn't as good as previous years. The dip was cold and runny and they gave us 15 corn chips to eat it with, yes we counted them, wasn't nearly enough. The staff were very pleasant as usual but the 'head man' seemed... More

This is really tasty mexican food in a great setting. It is a little hard to find, but it is a hidden oasis. The place is surprisingly huge and very nicely decorated. Staff is attentive and the food came out very quickly. Try the appetizer sampler, it is awesome! It is also really cheap considering how nice the interior is..

We had looked at reviews to this place before going to bali on here and were really excited to get to have some mexican food while over there. This did not live up to our expectations the food was half burnt and the other half didnthave the right flavour to it. The cocktails were nothing flash and the kids barely... More

Nothing fancy, just great tasting Mexican food and a great atmosphere. Staff are extremely friendly and attentive. We go at least once every time we are in Bali. Been at least 10 times to TJs if not more.

Food is really good...as close to Mexican as you are going to get in Asia. HUGE selection of tequilas...from the standard stuff and the best. Drinks are really good and a nice selection. But the main reason I enjoy this place is the atmosphere.Lots of live green plants, a really cool coy pond inside. The sounds of waterfall coming from... More

Amazing Mexican food, great atmosphere and contemporary restaurant. We went to TJ's twice while we were in Bali for a short stay and was by far the best food we ate (surprising that Mexican was in Indonesia and at such a great standard). Huge selection of food great price aswell very cheap! highly recommend!
