“Watch out for those portions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

I was killing time one day and was hungry. Decided to try out this new place as the scent reminded me of the lady that made authentic quesadillas in college. Well, I ordered the usual 2 quesadillas. Well, once I received these my eyes opped out. They were huge. The flavours were amazing. It took a while to be served as everything is made fresh to order. Prices were impressive for the area. Not a five star restaurant but, 5-stars based on my expectations and pricing!

“OMG!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

OMG, by far the best authentic street taco's we had whilst in Mexico :) and you get to write on the walls!

Daveed was so helpful in assisting us to understand the dishes and whilst he doesn't hold a liqueur licence he was happy to pour our supermarket purchased beer into cups :)

This is a very small place, with minimal seating inside and a few tables outside.

Friendly service and fresh cooked authentic food, it doesn't get much better. An absolute must if you're passing.
