“Never going back!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

I used to love this place and wanted to show it to a friend on Saturday night. Bad idea. Apparently there was a private event in the Mexican garden (which we had no idea about). We were pushed up the stairs by a furious security guy shouting at us to "go back to where we came from". We were in shock and almost fell over but glad we got out of there without being hurt. Night ruined and will never go back which is unfortunate cause I do like the food regardless if the occasional rats in the garden.

“Ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

The outdoor garden is nice to sit in and have a drink and so on. Had the $33 deal - the trout. It said 400 gms - and I thought "yum" - but it turned out to be a whole trout. So watch out for that! Otherwise good value (drinks are $7.50 for a schooner); there was a DJ and a friendly crowd. Plenty of suits i.e. after work drinks. Good experience overall.

“Not a big fan of the new Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great place to hang out.... but not a big fan of the new Mexican kitchen. Much prefer the previous Thai kitchen! But overall, the place is still great for drinks... outdoor and indoor... casual meet up after work, close to everywhere.
