Authentic Mexican food. This unassuming restaurant has flavorful, delicious food and equally tasty margaritas. The chorizo quesadilla was the highlight of the meal and churros were perfect in texture and cinnamon goodness. Would recommend if you are in the Hague. Great location - right in...the center of town.More

Excellent food, as always, the portions have been reduced and the tortillas are too small for the dishes that come accompanied with tortillas (I asked for cochinita) very disappointed with the tortillas size. The restaurant is expensive (we know it advance, not our 1st time...there ) but the price is no longer in line with the portions. Still excellent food and service.More

With no expectations, we tried this unassuming establishment last night. As visitors to Mexico every year, we were stunned by the originality and authenticity of the cuisine. Prices were fair, service was friendly. We sat in a quiet courtyard and were immediately homesick for Mexico....We are expats living in Belgium, but we'd come back to the Hague just to experience this restaurant again!!More

I was at the Hague with a lot of mates because of an academic trip. For many of us it was the first time we left the country (of course we’re all mexicans), by the time we expend there, we knew flavours and food were...really different, so a local friend told us about kua. I can say it is an authentic piece of Mexico in Netherlands. Of course is not cheap, they have to import ingredients from 9000kms away, unfortunately for us but fortunately for you (if you do not use to eat spicy and spiced food) all dishes are cooked with mexican recipes but with a lack of “chile” and other ingredients (with an unaccustomed stomach, Mexican food can irritate a lot and you can even get a headache from the spice). In conclusion, it is an excelent option for mexicans at the Netherlands who miss our beautiful and delicious food, and for all foreigners please keep in mind that we are a country with the size of 3/4 europe, of course our food culture is not just tacos. And we have a lot of weird dishes (even for us) like mole, which is chile with chocolate. Of COURSE will taste funny, most childs here do not like it until they grow. P.d 1- it would be amazing if you add chilaquiles and horchata everyday. P.d2- my visit was 2 years ago but i can not put the date anymoreMore

I ordered together with my partner the only vegan option on the menu! The food was not super tasty and it didn't have a real Mexican flavour, As a vegan, I don't recommend this place. I think you can improve it a lot and have...more than one vegan option! The service was super good! We made a mistake with the order and they called us for fixing it. Very friendly people!More

Throughout the entire month of February, I had constantly been craving some real Mexican food. Having just moved from Los Angeles, a place with a robust Mexican community and countless authentic Mexican restaurants, I am quite accustomed to high quality Mexican cuisine. So, I sought...to find a Mexican restaurant here in the Netherlands that paralleled some of my hometown favorites. KUA Mexican Kitchen, a Mexican restaurant located near the city center of the Hague, met this mark. With restaurants still closed for in person dining, my family and I ordered take out from Kua. The website was quite easy to navigate and offered a fairly normal sized number of dishes. While Kua does offer delivery services, these services are mostly confined to Hague city-dwellers since they deliver food only via bike. Since I live in Wassenaar, what would be a 40 minute bike ride for a delivery person, we had to drive down to the Hague to pick up our meal. When we arrived at the restaurant, the food was hot and ready to go. Now, one of my biggest concerns with ordering takeout, a concern I have expressed in previous articles, is the effect of transportation time on the warmth of the food. For this meal, I was particularly worried since it would be a 20 minute car ride from the restaurant to my home. However, when we started unboxing the food after arriving at my home, these concerns melted away. With each opened box came a torrent of warm steam, indicative of the dish’s temperature. Furthermore, the restaurant had included a little sheet of paper offering advice on how to heat up each specific dish, should the dish get cold. In total, I ordered three small appetizers and a main course. The first appetizer I ordered was chips and guacamole. This dish was excellent! The guacamole was not only seasoned to perfection, but it boasted a delicious citrusy tang. Both elements combined together effortlessly, creating a wonderful cohesion of flavors. In addition, the chips were both crispy and warm. The second appetizer I ordered was the sopes, a traditional Mexican dish that consists of a fried masa base with a variety of savory toppings. These sopes were topped with refried beans, lettuce, and avocados. I’m not sure if I have ever had sopes before, but these were quite tasty. I particularly enjoyed the soft texture of the refried beans in conjunction with the crunchier corn base and lettuce. The last appetizer of the night was elote, or street style corn on the cob. This dish consisted of corn on the cob with a creamy sauce made of mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, sweet chili powder, and lime. This proved to be yet another delicious dish. The natural sweetness of the corn juxtaposed with the citrusy tang of the line created yet another wonderful combination of flavors. The chili powder added another layer of spice and seasoning that really brought the whole dish together. Lastly, for my main course, I ordered a classic Mexican dish: chicken enchiladas. These enchiladas were soft and cheesy, and came with a spicy salsa verde. The salsa verde was a wise addition, giving the dish a bit of kick. Overall, I enjoyed this dish. This authentic Mexican meal achieved my goal of quenching a month-long hankering for real Mexican food. Each dish brought to the table a unique combination of rich and authentic flavors that made my dining experience quite enjoyable. If anyone is interested in real Mexican cuisine here in the Netherlands, Kua Mexican Kitchen is the place for you!More

Kua is traditional mexican food but I think it is a little overrated. The dishes have fresh ingredients and the restaurant has friendly service and great ambiance, which makes it a nice place. However, in the three times I've been there, I've noticed that the...food is kind of bland. The ingredients loose their flavor or are overcooked. Portions are not very big, and overall, my friends, family and I have never left saying "WOW!".More
