“Small servings but very yummy!”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

I was surprised at how much smaller the meals looked in real life compared to the pictures but the taste and free corn chips and salsa more than made up for it.
My mum had the calamari and a salmon & avocado salad. The salmon & avocado was delicious but the calamari was average.
I had the fish tacos and the avocado cheese balls. Both were fantastic. Fresh, flavoursome and moist. Would definitely eat here again.
Great service and nice atmosphere.

“Good Mexican food in Tokyo”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

We happened to find this restaurant just by luck. It was my first experience with Mexican food and I went here with a lot of expectation and this place did not turn me down. The food here is very nice and ambiance is quite Mexican. Ample place for a larger group and good tables for couples as well. The service is fast and waiters are very friendly. We loved the cheese Avocado rolls.
The pricing is also average and does not go very high on pocket. Very conveniently located and very near from the Shinjuku Subway station.
I happened to go here twice in my short stay in Tokyo and I loved it.
A must go :)

“Good for Japanese Mexican”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We were snowed in the building so we decided to try out this Mexican restaurant. We were not disappointed at all. Nice food (even though a little adapted to the Japanese taste), good drinks and a young, good looking crowd.

“good place for gatherings”
Reviewed March 1, 2014

Fairly big place with good party specials. While there are All you can drink specials throughout Japan, here you can also get all you can drink tequila, margaritas, etc., which make getting together here even better service.
Service and quality of food are better than average.

“First confusing, then only good.”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

It felt strange to have to wait 10 minutes outside although the counter was empty and we actually had asked for having the dinner at the counter. Well inside, everything was fine. Service fast and friendly and everything ordered tasted good. We were two, had 3 drinks 2 glasses of wine and various peaces of small dishes for an amount of 8500 yen.
