“Best Mexican food we're had outside North America”
Reviewed May 14, 2009

OK, it may be too much to hope for to get good Mexican in Asia….but WOW, this place does it! The location on Faber Drive is the best since the owner is generally there and he has an almost messianic zeal to create good Mexican food.

Certainly more traditional Mexican than Tex-Mex, it’s the best we’ve tried anywhere in Europe or Asia (and we’ve attempted a lot) since becoming expats from North America more than 15 years ago.

Its very small so it gets loud when it’s full and the tables near the entrance should be avoided since they are too close to the door. Excellent selection of tequilas compliments the food. The service, depending on who is working, can be patchy at times but the overall experience is great.
