A friend recommended the food here. I must admit it is FANTASTIC. The mussels are fresh and soft. The chimichanga and the quesadillas are very tasty. The steak is not hard. The ambience is excellent. The design with the colourful drawings on the wall, the indoor fountain with the water dripping sound, and the occasional Mexican music/ songs. EXCEPT for... More

This was a find off the net while looking for a Mexican Place to eat in KL. Turned out to be quite a place- nice ambience, good food, friendly staff who are never in a hurry to make you order. Have been there a couple of times last being for my Mother's birthday, yesterday. Most of us being vegetarian was... More

My favourite place, great Mexican food, fantastic margaritas, friendly staff. Finding the place easy, ample car park outside restaurant. Better make appointment as place can get crowded. Wish they'd extend their hours and open for lunch on Sunday's too .

A little bit hidden away off the main drag, but what a find. I can't believe it has been there for nine years, and I've lived in Kl for eight, but I only discovered the restaurant recently when I was invited to join a dinner with a colleague. I now go back weekly, and consider myself a "regular". The El-Presidente... More

Happened on this restaurant accidentally, as it was raining heavily on a Friday evening. Guess you could call this restaurant a chain, as they operate from three different branches - Damansara, Subang and Ampang. This review is based on the last mentioned, which is a few kilometres from KLCC. The quessidias, burritos and enchiladas are delicious and reasonably priced and... More

I've enjoyed my share of TexMex, Mexican (Oaxaca) back in the USA. To qualify my review one of my mainstays during my college years was burritos, tacos and such so I have a fair idea of what the typical Mexican meals would be like. Even during my visits to other parts of California I would frequent Mexican restaurants. Our visit... More
