Badriv was at our table tonight and we couldn’t be happier. He was attentive to detail and very social. The food was great and the drinks Hector made (Margaritas with Passion fruit and spices as we requested) was awesome. Thank you for making my husband...start his birthday in a great way ☺️More

We were there during their mexican fiesta week. Everything about the place is just average! The food, presentation, vibes, ambiance all are very basic. Service was absolutely slow despite their being a handful of guests.More

Momentous occasion and Zoco was right by the side each step to weave a memorable evening. 1. Staff - Courteous and affable staff, had a warm welcome by team and very courteous staff. Adapted to sitting arrangement with adherence to recent covid laws. Mr. Hector...attended us very well, suggesting and tailoring food craving. Also, the manager was constantly interacting with guests helping customise food demand. 2. Food -- VEGETARIAN Pallete nowhere else in Dubai Mexican restaurants. Fajita, enchiladas, tlayudas, street corn (best one I had), chilaquiles, nacos, guacamole --- ALL VEG 3. Ambience, Music, Vibes -- Very authentic feeling, let's of different sitting arrangements, 🎶 resonating 🇲🇽. Celebrated birthday in authentic Mexican rattler, candles, music and cake. Thanks to the staff for making the evening memorable. Kids friendly place. 4. Value for Money -- Good discounts on cards and Zomato.More

We were a group of 6 people from different nationalities (Brazilian, Lebanese, Morrocan) and diverse tastes and some with allergies. We had a short time like only one hour to have dinner because of the La Perle show. Promptly, Hector come to help us deciding...on what to order with suggestions taking in consideration time and allergies. The order was perfect satisfying everyone and the octopus that he said was his favorite was definitely the highlight of all dishes! We even learned some new Mexican words :) Next time I'll come for the brunch!More

I’ve been twice in zoco, first time with Danilo and it was very pleasant and amazing service. This last time I went and was served by Hector, he was really nice, introduced me to their loyalty program and thanks to that I’ll be coming back...and will visit other restaurants from the same group. Hector was super helpful and amazing service delivery, it’s really nice coming to a place where the staff makes you feel welcome. Nevertheless the food was amazing and delicious mezcal cocktails!! Can’t wait to come backMore

Hi there, Yes, branches are in buffet style, but they do as well meat and seafood pass around. Live taco/guacamole and margarita stations too. Overall - food and drinks are in rich variety. The branch is worth to try!!
