The Fiesta Platter gave a good sampling to go with the Margaritas, though the drinks were a bit small. The fish tacos were among the best I've had anywhere. Definitely worth another trip back.

Don't have the jalapeno poppers. We ordered them and the cream cheese filling was still frozen when we got them. We had the chicken tacos, fish tacos and vegetarian tacos. The fish tacos were the only ones that were great. The other ones were all pretty average. I would go back again only because there is not much choice for... More

Dear Sonalivrao, Firstly, thank for your review & feedback. We are thrilled that you enjoyed our fish tacos very much. Secondly, we are sorry that the jalapeño poppers were frozen on the inside. Despite the fact that the jalapeño poppers are homemade, we make them in large quantity & freeze. It was our oversight that we didn't thaw them properly.... More

Happily we discovered this restaurant near our home when we first came to KL. We have tried a few other Tex/Mex, or other places claiming to be Mex restaurants in KL. As former long time residents of Texas, we have fairly high expectations when we go out for Tex-Mex and none of the others merits a repeat visit...except this one!... More

Made reservations for a party of 11 the week before. Read good reviews on the restaurant. When we arrived, our seats were not ready - which was a tad embarassing as I had guests. We quickly helped to sort things out and sat down to order. The air-conditioning and fan near us weren't functioning - which caused the place to... More

Yum! I enjoyed dining there. The food was really delicious and tasty. However I don't think the staffs there are friendly enough. When I tried to smile to them, they showed no expression.

Despite being known for its Mexican food, this is actually a Tex-Mex restaurant. And you will find items like burgers and steaks along side the burritos and chimichangas. The thing i can appreciate most about this place is the insatiable attention to detail and impeccable use of high quality, fresh produce. No sauce out of a jar here people. The... More
