“Well-priced, delicious food”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Mexico offers Mexican-inspired food, creatively adapted for the modern New Zealand palate, utilising seasonal ingredients. My soft taco filled with braised pork belly, pomegranate, spiced cabbage and sesame may not have been 'authentic' but it was reasonably priced and delicious. I recommend trying dishes from the 'specials' board... and the fried chicken. Plenty of spicy and milder options to suit all tastes. A colour-in kids menu is available, with crayons provided. This said, there does seem to be an emphasis on alcoholic beverages, with an entire menu dedicated to tequila. Negative reviews seem to be focused on waiting times, stretched service and crowded, noisy dining. Mexico is this popular for good reason. If you dislike a busy environment, try Mexico for lunch, or dinner on a weeknight.

“Tasty stuff!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Cheap as chips and full of flavour! Their home made corn chips were amazing as was the pumpkin dip they came with. Also had the prawns with black rice which were great! Very helpful staff

“Over rated and getting worse”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We went here for a group dinner, first issue was the tables are a bad design and uncomfortable. The set menu was generous but poor quality. The service was awful. I would not recommend

“Tequila!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

The best part was the margarita although not appealing served in a small tumbler style glass - this could however be the authentic Mexican way!

Fried chicken tasty and enough menu options to keep things interesting.

Service a bit patchy but food was served quickly.
