From what I know, it's the only Mexican restaurant in Cluj. Great salads and soups, diverse cuisine.

It used to have a better location and lovely atmosphere (now it doesn't even have that), it always had just decent food, never good, never excelent. I don't know what chef they have but the food is mediocre at best. The food is barely hot and they lack truly hot sauces, should the food be adjusted to local tastes. Truly... More

I absolutely like the crispy chicken quesadilla..it goes very well with the yoghurt sauce (ask for extra sauce). Also the Tex-Mex Burger is pretty good..messy but tasty. Don't try the buffalo wings..they are just plain unspiced wings coverd in tons of BBQ sauce.

Today was the first time when I was at Pokka restaurant with my wife and we had a perfect night. We've eat their Mexican food before at some local festivals and we fell in love with it. We gladly recommend Pokka!

We came across this bistro while walking towards the Reformed Church and decided to come back after we became hungry from venturing around the city. I ordered the tampiquena (an enchilada with beef steak and several dips) and was very satisfied. The enchilada was quite cheesy - something that I thoroughly enjoy and the guacamole was amazing. The only problem... More

The food is very good and tasty ( price is a bit high) but i would go there. The ambiance is nice.it is a small place, but it is not crowded at all. The waiters are very friendly and attentive.

I was drawn in by the handwritten menu outside. I had the chicken burrito with an Ursus beer. The service was polite and friendly. The food was good and reasonably priced. Vintage 70's music played in the background.

The place is nice, staff is nice and ambiance is nice. Location is good, in the city center. It's issue is that the food is not very good, especially for the prices they practice. I gave it a few chances, but every time I was disappointed. This is both while eating in the restaurant, and from their delivery service.
