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...

We've been there a few times before and this time we took some relatives. It's always nice and fun to go to this great TexMex restaurant. Since I do not eat meat, they do have some vegetarian selection... and they make great margaritas!

My wife and I decided to try out Las Carretas in Damansara heights. We were warmly greeted by the Jr Captain and shown to a table. The decor and light music in the background reflected the Latin theme of the restaurant. The menu claims to be Mexican although I am not sure of its authenticity as I have never tasted... More

Sorry to burst the bubble but this is not Mexican food. I wouldn't even consider it Tex Mex cause Ive had 100 times better. At least do some research on what Mexican food is and what it contains. Not to mention the horrible service, burrito was cooked with lettuce, my wife advised them it was not at all and they... More
