Happened on this restaurant accidentally, as it was raining heavily on a Friday evening. Guess you could call this restaurant a chain, as they operate from three different branches - Damansara, Subang and Ampang. This review is based on the last mentioned, which is a few kilometres from KLCC. The quessidias, burritos and enchiladas are delicious and reasonably priced and... More

I've enjoyed my share of TexMex, Mexican (Oaxaca) back in the USA. To qualify my review one of my mainstays during my college years was burritos, tacos and such so I have a fair idea of what the typical Mexican meals would be like. Even during my visits to other parts of California I would frequent Mexican restaurants. Our visit... More

Touted as THE place to go for authentic Mexican food, naturally, I had high expectations of this place. My first experience in 2012 at Las Carretas was a good one, and the fajitas were authentic. But during my latest visit, the quality was lacking. They no longer had real pico salsa, and replaced it with some diced onions and tomato.... More

Avoid Las Carretas AT ALL COST! My wife had lunch with her 4 friends at the Taipan outlet earlier today and is now suffering from food poisoning. 4 out of 5 down with food poisoning. And when they queried the staff, she had the cheeks to go "It must have been the seafood spaghetti!" It looks like they knew about... More

I've been twice. The first time I thought, "It's ok for a change." The second time I thought, "Never again." Let's start with the good: the service is friendly. That's where the good part ends. First of all, this is not authentic Mexican cuisine. Not even close. Anyone that says it is does not actually know what authentic Mexican food... More

I was there with my friends and was disappointed to find that the food is not really Mexican. I wonder if there's a real Mexican restaurant around afterall.

Have been to the Ampang and Damansara branches many times and always had consistently good food - something that's rare to find in Malaysia! Service is always friendly and attentive, even on busy nights. Food is always tasty and is very reasonably priced for non local food. As an idea 2 non alcoholic drinks, 1 entrée and 2 mains came...
