The food was delicious, the service was great. We didnt have to wait too long even though it was busy.The waitress was so helpful. If you want a good meal go to The Aztec, you wont regret it.

I'm usually pretty forgiving with places I go to eat but this place actually made me laugh until I cried because almost everything went wrong. Three of us went for dinner on a Tuesday night at 7.30 and here is what went wrong... - The only available table was outside - The kitchen closes at 8.30pm - We were served... More

We found good Mexican food at a reasonable price. It had an interesting range of dishes not found at other Mexican restaurants.

The menu in this restaurant is very extensive. We were eight for lunch so our meal took a long time to come. But the staff was really apologetic and when the meal arrived it was quite nice. They have dishes such as mole and very good enchiladas, and that is always a plus. I would be happy to come back... More

This used to be great value but not sure if plate or food portion is getting smaller. Love the food still and is always fresh just getting little disappointed with size of food on the plate

Went for a really late lunch / early dinner on a Monday. The place is comfortable and staff attentive and pleasant. I ordered the the nachos. The meal size was okay, came out quickly, but there was no real flavour to the dish with hardly any corns chips or substance. Price was fairly average for Mexican but for the dish... More

I have been wanting to visit this restaurant for awhile but my husband wasn't too sure about Mexican. I talked him in to going and of course he ate everything on his plate. He had Mexican chicken and I had chicken fajitas. The place was buzzing and service was good. Would recommend.

I love Mexican and this is one of the best. Had one of the combos which was a chicken burrito and beef enchilada. Came with rice and beans. Absolutely delicious! Would come back in a heartbeat.

Liked the experience. Was a bit cold when we were there as a couple in June and managed to change tables - no problem. Good food and by luck a good deal on the night we went with half price on the second main. Well worth going to.

The staff were fantastic, friendly quick and helpful. The food is well presented and a decent size meal. The price is average. Downsides I found it very very noisy, having been to mexico and eaten a lot of Mexican food I found the food lacked actual Mexican flavours. The tostada had chicken that was like diced chicken you would find... More
