Superb, authentic food, Ask Jose for the Midnight Special...you won't be disappointed. Located on Princess St, don't be fooled by the small size...great things come in small packages.

Awesome value, many authentic mexican options and some Indian food as well. It's a tiny little place - take out only, but you won't be disappointed!

The outside of this place is deceiving. One day on a whim, my partner and I finally decided to try it out. Absolutely delicious tacos, fajitas, burritos, etc. the prices are also extremely reasonable. The gentleman who owns and runs the place is a great guy. He's friendly and will make your meal however you would like. It is nice to go somewhere and not feel like an inconvenience if you want something different. He also gets to know his regulars!

This is a little take-out place that serves burritos, other latin dishes and indian curries. The chef is from Guatemala but he worked at at least one of the local indian restaurants and learned the recipes. So his cross-breeding of a burrito and curry to create a curry-and-rice tortilla wrap (a very spiffy invention) can be put down to this. The food is perfectly good, and doesn't aspire to be more than it is. Decor is non-existent, but who cares?
If there's one major negative, it's that you can sometimes wait in line a little bit if the owner/chef is busy and you didn't call your order in ahead of time. And sometimes you wait even if you did.
In the end, I would certainly recommend this place if you want take-out burritos or curry. If not, then you shouldn't really be going here.
