Poor ingredients, poorly cooked and poorly served. Sadly we had hoped that the side salad could not disappoint as there is little you can do wrong, however it was awful, not fresh and plonked in the bowl.

Drinks service is slow. They don't know how to make a caipirinha (limes were not crushed, just whole wedges). Food arrived a little quicker but the variable temperature through the dishes was evidence of incompetent microwave operation. The "skin-on fries" were in fact just regular frozen chips. She sharing platter from the Specials list was OK, but the Southern Fried Chicken & BBQ Pulled Pork - "Our most popular dish" was a bit dry, and very salty.

The ambience / decor is fine, and the staff pleasant, but it's a restaurant and the food isn't up to the mark.

Friday evening, after the rush - 50 mins to wait for starters, which consisted of cheesey garlic bread and premade luke-warm meatballs. Drinks also took a long time to arrive.
Main course - full rack of ribs were beautiful but the chicken skewered vegetables was inedible, dry burnt and tasted like a packet of dry spice was added to some tomato sauce - disgusting. On the plus side, it took 30 minutes to come instead of 50!

Don't bother coming here if you have somewhere to be after, without badgering the staff I don't think your food would ever come!

The gentleman serving us was very polite but the kitchen is incredibly slow.

Been a couple of times and been disappointed both times. The food is bland and the portion sizes are awful for the price you pay. The drinks are too expensive and the service is slow. I would happily never eat there again

If you want something better that a fast-food burger, but don't want a formal restaurant Chiquito offers a relaxed an fun alternative, with a Mexican and Tex-Mex theme.

Classic Mexican dishes and burgers with nice touches such as BBQ pulled pork.
