“Great traditional Mexican”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

I ate at Flying Fajita Sistas with work colleagues on a Friday night, most of whom had never experienced Mexican food. Upon entering we were sat next to the 'Wall of Pain', a shelf containing an assortment of hot sauces rising in Scoville heat levels from the bottom up to the most powerful sauces on the top shelf. Not for the faint of heart. The fajitas here are excellent, and were served with pineapple which I had never seen before in a Mexican restaurant with fajitas, but were a most welcome addition. The restaurant could be noisy at times, and it wasn't the biggest place I have eaten in, but the volume only contributes to the vibe and character of this great little restaurant.

“Loved it, and I would go there again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

An imaginative Mexican restaurant, almost on par with Mamasita in Melbourne. Would go there again.

“OVERRATED”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

having heard really good things about this restaurant i went last week with work friends plus my sister who had also heard really good things and wanted to try it.

i have to say the food was very ordinary and a lot of it seemed to lack the oomph i expected having read the menu before we went. Having eaten Mexican in the US (yay Border Grill) and a few in NYC, there is no comparison to what we get here. I dont know why this should be so, but it is and we have come to the conclusion we wont eat mexican at home anymore because we are always disappointed.
Having said that the staff were nice, but the service was quick and you got the feeling they would like you out as soon as possible.

“Great atmosphere, menu, food and service. All in all a must-do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2011

I recently went here (finally, after having been told by EVERYONE how great it is) and FFS certainly lived up to it's expectations.

The service was excellent, atmosphere was super loud (perhaps because we were seated in the upstairs section, next to 2 large-parties) but lively and inviting, and the choices on the menu were varied and all looked delicious! The sangria was fantastic and I was suprised with how many interesting, beyond-standard margaritas were on the drinks list!

Our food came out super fast, and all of it was delicoius. Would definately go back as everyone in our group had a great time.

“Viva SISTAS.....doin' it on the Glebe Point Road”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2011

really lovely food served by friendly people...small tables turning over 2-3 times a session....quick but not rushed.. flavours excellent. prepared by CARING and VERY competent chef...served HOT and well. portions and value excellent. BYO wine is a bonus as we brought along a RIOJA which complemented the proceedings nicely. Don't you just hate it when you dine at a tiny place, which by definition CAN'T have vinos for every taste...but REFUSE to allow you to bring what YOU REALLY WANT? get with it restauranteurs...charge the corkage...but keep the punters happy. LIKE THE SISTAs doin' it on Glebe Pt. Road. double thumbs up! VIVA Sistas!!!
