Visited here with a friend recently, it was a Monday night and pretty much empty.We waited at the front of the restaurant waiting for someone to seat us... took a good 5 minutes before we were shown a table. Whole experience was okay, very slow, food was nice but the slow service put a downer on... read 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. As a... More

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

Chiquito has been around for a while. It's been Valley Parks staple Mexican/South American food restaurant. I've been to the Leicester Square branch also which is always great fun with two floors but something has changed. The menu prices were now on parr with Leicester Square's and £13 for the chicken classic is a lot. I ordered a Dark and... More

We went in here this evening, more as an alternative to sitting in the traffic trying to get out of the hell hole that is Croydon Valley retail park. We figured that if we had a meal that the traffic would ease. Had never been to Chiquito so decided to give it a try. Decor nothing to write home about,... More

Food was over cooked, there were other people complaining about the timing, waited over half hour for our starter plate to be clear and the restaurant wasn't even at its busiest.Will not be going back

Had a great meal in Chiquitos. Love the spicy chicken hot wrap that comes with chips and coleslaw. I have been to chiquitos before for a party and its great for those kind of occasions. Been here many times and cannot complain. Cocktails and mocktails are great as well. If you're up for mexican food without going to Mexico try... More
