Don't let the tiny space and modest decor fool you. The food and service here are very good. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. If you have questions they will take the time to explain. The rice and refried beans are soooo good!

I came to La Bamba for my 30th birthday with my wife. It was busy on a Thursday night, but we didn't have to wait to be seated and looked after. I've been to La Bamba in the past (3 years ago or so).

This place is a great find. Friendly, welcoming staff. Great variety of authentic cuisine. Food is amazing and served fresh. Love that they offer more rice and beans if you are not full. I highly doubt they have many people take them up on that offer tho. Will definitely be a repeat customer

If you are after authentic, tasty Mexican food this is your place! Have visited a half dozen times and the staff always treat you well, great margaritas too (the authentic Mexican kind!). Nothing else in the city even comes close in quality. I ordered the enchiladas, which were very tasty and filling.

This neighbourhood restaurant is consistently excellent. Today was no exception. My wife and I visited La Bamba for lunch today and enjoyed it immensely. We both had enchiladas - hers was called Rojas mine was La Bamba. The flavours of the sauces were rich and complex. The service was excellent also - we received our food about 5 minutes after...

Six of us went La Bambas and everyone enjoyed their meal. Good Mexican beer selection too. Chips and salsa are free for first basket only.

Each and every time we come to La Bamba, it's incredible. Such authentic, tasty Mexican food! Staff are amazing, atmosphere is so small family friendly. Food and drinks superb! It's always busy, so wise to make reservations. So worth it!

This is great food and service. The drinks are cold and tasty and really hit the spot. The food is authentic Mexican. The place does not look like much but they sure know how to run a restaurant. Recommend that you make reservations if you are going near a meal time. Very busy place and very fast service.

Food was excellent. Service was exceptional. The server explained the degrees of spice. She even brought tortilla chips with a sampling of the different sauces for my friend to try before she ordered. Friendly and accommodating!
