My partner and two children decided to try here as we love Mexican food. We walked in and it was empty except for one other table. The person who greeted us was polite but distracted as he kept answering his phone and talking to a friend. He was also loudly complaining about another worker who hadn't turned up. We ordered...

I love Mexican food - the spicy, tangy, cheesy - every single flavours! Undoubtedly Love Chiquito food. I have been to multiple ones - but this is the closest to home - so a bit special. The staff are always courteous, trying to ask you about the food, their service (a bit too many times sometimes) - food is always... More

We've eaten here twice in the past and it has been ok, never great. However we arrived today and the man at the entrance didn't as much as say hello or make eye contact, even after I said hello and smiled. He said "3" and walked towards a table left the menus on the table and walked away!! We walked... More

I have been here twice with my family and on both occasions we came out underwhelmed and so no more. Both times the burritos and chimichangas had 10 % meat in them and we did hear couple of others complain as well about this. Secondly the service was so slow that the good took 45 mins to arrive.

A pleasant pre cinema bite. Fantastic service and from Laura who told us she has just started. Unfortunately we didn't have cash on us so I hope the 10% gratuity we tipped finds its way into Laura's well deserved pocket... Price for a portion of rice, a few chicken thighs and 5 chucks of roasted veg at £10 seems a... More
