Popped in here with a friend for a quick pre-theatre bite of food. On the plus side, the staff serving were pretty friendly and the frozen margaritas were great. But the food counter looked messy and unappetizing and the food didn't appear particularly fresh. I...More

Dine in in this place is not welcome as the bins are overfull and tables are dirty. Feels like the customers need to clean the tables themselves. Beef burito was real good.

I have visited this branch on multiple occasions. Every time they have no peppers. People have mentioned here that the staff are rude. I’ve previously encountered a negative experience with one of the staff members. She still works there, looks very miserable. She’s quite rude...More

Usually I love tortilla however this one was ruined by the extremely rude staff. If you couldn’t hear them they would literally shout back at you in a rude manner. There was some arguments between staff and this was horrible to witness. Seemed to me...More

We were looking for a quick place to stop for a bite to eat and decided to give Tortilla a try as it was very close to our hotel. The model is very similar to the Chipotle restaurants in the USA where you go through...More

Staff were very abrupt and unwilling to clearly explain the order process. Lady taking the order was rolling eyes and clearly annoyed that as ‘first time customers’ we didn’t know how it works. Not as clear cut as SuBway. Staff were not very customer friendly....More

As usual, wanted to try somewhere new for me, I had the naked burrito, found the toppings thing a bit confusing and staff weren't up to explaining properly. The menu card thingy is a good idea, the food was good, not world beating but pretty...More

This is the same concept of Chipotle from America! It's quite good. Not as good as Chipotle but a decent substitute for sure. You can choose between bowls and burritos, choose your rice, beans, meat, etc. After 3pm the have quesadillas. They have seating upstairs...More

Burritos are amazing! You can choose what ingredients you want and make your burrito as you like! Stuff friendly and helpful! Location great! It can be very busy and you might not find a table to seat! Best option for a quick meal!

I have been a big fan of Mexican food since my first Burrito in San Francisco (1982). I love the concept of making it to your own taste. Fill in what I like and top it with hot salsa. Lunch time line is long but...More
