For $65 we had an entree, 2 mains and 4 drinks. The servings are huge and the staff and atmosphere are great.

It is annoying that you can't book but we got in with a party of 9 on monday at 7 no problems. Some of the staff were ok but nothing special. I enjoyed my food we shared Amarillo fries for starters and then I had Tartido ...but be careful the serving are large.The corn on the cob was yummy. Not a bad place for a get together.

The title says it all really, I've been a couple of times and always found the food to be very bland which was quite surprising given the high number of alternative places to buy mexican food locally.

They do not take bookings unless you have a large group, so you can soemtimes be left waiting quite some time to get a table, even when you can see empty seats all over the place inside - not sure if this is a measure to ensure meals are delivered quickly once you're in, or a ploy to entice you to buy a couple of drinks in the club (that it's inside) pre-dinner.

The meals are all quite big, and this combined with the blandness had no-one at our table on either visit finishing the whole meal.

Well priced, tasty food and great place to celebrate for birthdays and such celebrations. It can get noisy quickly, not somewhere I would go for romantic date. Service is reasonably fast depending on how busy they are.. Only downer is they don't deliver all plates at once so food can start to cool while waiting for others food to arrive.

Our most recent visit here was to celebrate a birthday. We were seated outside, nut with the heaters on it wasn't cold at all.

Everyone loved their meals, and they were all delivered to the table at the same time - something other restaurants never seem to be able to achieve with large groups.

Staff were very friendly, and happy to help with all of our requests.
