Probably the best Mexican food I've had in South Florida so far. The tamale appetizer was really good. My wife had the carnitas. The marinade was an interesting flavor, but the meat melted in your mouth. I had flautas. Very crispy and packed with chicken. It was a good experience overall.

This is by far the best Mexican restaurant in Miami my wife and I feel.. The salsa and chips can make you embarrassed as you just can't stop eating them!! And if you like it REALLY hot, they have a pepper sauce that is very dark green in appearance, with the "sting of a scorpion" The food is prepared and... More

Excellent authentic Mexican food. Outstanding service. It is a little pricier then some not so authentic Mexican restaurants, but worth it if you know the difference. What a great surprise!

Family owned and delicious food! My family and I eat here about once another and ways enjoy the food. Great service too! Guacamole, salsa and sangrias are some of the known homemade and delicious items I have had! Writing about it makes me want to go eat there right now.

This was my second time at Cheen Huaye. I can honestly say the food was very fresh and the taste was excellent. The chips and salsa were outstanding. We also tried the Tamarind margaritas and they were a treat. I shared the flan and although it was good I thought it was an extremely small portion for the price they... More

I have been to this restaurant several times in the past 3 yrs. today I was disappointed. Their chillie reianios used to be fabulous. Now they just serve a chillie with some melted cheese!! Not good eats.

Initially, this place looked like nothing special, located in a strip mall, but the food was absolutely excellent - ceviches, salads, tacos - all with subtle but distinct flavours, unlike the overpowering "Tex Mex"-type chains that seem to populate most of Florida, which seem to rely on sugar, tomato and chilli for all their flavouring. If I could make one... More

I've eaten at Cheen Huaye with my family many times since they opened. It is small, family run, with fantastic, authentic Yucatan food. Everything I've eaten there is good, but I especially love their chicken enchaladas (with green sauce)...they are the best! Whenever my kids are in town, that is where they want to go.
