“No Amex allowed”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Be aware they don't really like credit cards. The food and service was good though. The place has a good ambience and single customers are treated well.

“authentic mexican with great service and awesome Margaritas!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

The owner of the store was just lovely - we arrived before official opening time and she kindly offered to let us stay and have a drink and chat to us - we opted to come back a little later after viewing the Sky Tower and i'm glad i found this little gem.

What to say - mmmm chimichangas! You have a great selection of nachos, Fajitas, enchiladas and Mexican soft drinks - i'm sure there are desserts but i don't recall seeing them listed. Wine selection is good as is the shelves of tequila for your shots or margaritas (which btw is a very large serving). If you want authentic fresh Mexican food that is healthy and served in great portions quickly with a smile this is for you. The portions were ample so don't order too much as you just wont fit it all in!! I got a margarita that was beautiful and my partner had the entree serving of nachos that was more than enough for him without needing anything else.

It's a cosy little place, so you may need to book first but definitely worth the walk to find it if you like your Mexican food tasty and authentic with great service.

“Spicy & excellent”
Reviewed June 7, 2012

We went there on our last day in Auckland. We took enchiladas - large dish, barely ate it all. Very good and spicy.
