Mexican Food in Asia?

Yes! It was our first choice upon arriving in Langkawi because there is no Mexican food where we live. This restaurant did not disappoint as the tacos and nachos were excellent. Almost like being in Baja. We weren't alone as it was packed every night.

Tasty, and plenty. We went with my husband for a romantic dinner. Overall ok, but if I was in Mexico, the food is different from the original. Service very friendly and efficient. We ordered a Corona beer got as it should be with lime, and perhaps the most brilliant Mexican and tasty burrito, but it lacked black beans and coriander... More

We had such a great time here. We were a group of 17 people, so it was pretty chaotic. They gave us the upstairs to use as our own and sent wait staff up frequently to see if we needed anything. Food orders came correctly; it took a little longer than preferred but the restaurant was very full and, as... More

We took the family here whilst visiting langkawi, all 10 of us enjoyed it! They had a great selection of Mexican food and well priced, nice portions. The staff did well to serve us all in good time and they had a great buzzing atmosphere. Some of the food is spicy which caught some people out, so careful what you... More

Our last evening meal in Lang Kawi was at the Little Mexican. Can't tell you how great it was. Catering for 10 people isn't easy at the best of times but they took the challenge in their stride! Didn't have to wait too long for a table, even though they were rushed off their feet! The food arrived pretty much... More

Friendly staff, the owner is a decent guy, and atmosphere is very chill. Often has live band in the evenings. I ordered enchiladas which were pretty good. I wouldn't say it is authentic Mexican food but I will say it is a fantastic change if you need a break from the local foods. What makes this place shine is the... More

Whenever we visit Langkawi we visit this place, always so so good! Highly recommended for any meal and for everyone. The restaurant is small and to be seated may be a problem sometimes but the wait is worth it, you'll be coming back for more!

Although I was certainly not planning on eating much Mexican while on Langkawi, I am grateful that fate brought me together with the two lovely owners of this fine establishment. While I was travelling alone, the owners took me under their wing on my birthday and truly showed me a great time. Great food, great service, great entertainment and just... More

Not sure why I elected to eat Mexican food while in Malaysia - it must have been the interesting look of this nice little restaurant on the main road in Patai Cenang - very bright and colourful. The staff were friendly and organised a nice plate of nachos that went down a treat with my cold beer. The burrito that... More
