“Teeth Cracking Rice”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I ordered a takeaway from this restaurant for the first time as I had a hankering for some good Mexican food. After my meal I still had a hankering for some good mexican food. It was bland and uninspiring but the best part was the rice, some of it so undercooked that it was like eating raw rice. Real teeth-cracking stuff. Never again.

“Pretty average”

Small servings, over priced, no atmosphere.
Food really bland, taquitos were paper thin, with no taste.
Worst nachos EVER.

“Very dissatisfied”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Looked like it was microwaved and very bland. Slow service and no heating in restaurant that had to spend most of the time with our coats on.

“Sunday night with the family”
Reviewed May 13, 2012

I have never been a big fan of Mexican food, so I state that from the start. I am happy try all things. The evening and the location are fine, the food leave a lot to be desired, the food was tasteless and the pricing for what was severed was very overrated.
We had a total of 5 meals, with 3 of us being fans of the Mexican style food, we all left a little disappointed with what was severed and the lack of taste.
I would not recommend the restaurant to anyone. It was such a disappointment.
