“Mexican in Kiev”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

If you want or miss Mexican, this is your best option. The food is pretty good. The location is a bit difficult to find. Margaritas are good. The restaurant is unusually expensive, however. I was surprised. Worth it if you are based in Ukraine and is quesadillas though.

“Good experience at Tequila House”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Good Mexican food in Kiev is a bit of an oxymoron, but Tequila House comes close. If you one wants truly good, authentic Mexican cuisine, then go to California or Mexico. Buit, when in Kiev, TH is a viable alternative. The food is good (not great, but good). Tortillas are OK, Fajitas were well conceived and well served, and I found desserts to be good quality. A wide variety of tequila-based and Mexcian style drinks were available. Prompt, courteous service by multi-lingual servers was excellent. Motif is comfortable and quaint. Prices were commensurate with quality, portion, and service. Good place.

“Mas Por Favor!”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

We visited the Chernobyl Museum and were hungry and thirsty. It was Tequila House to the rescue! We had read reviews that were not favorable but it was nearby and thought we would take a chance. We ordered their special blue margarita for around $8.50 and they were very delicious. My daughter and I had the chicken Guadalajara enchiladas and we thought they were very delicious ($11). My husband had the lunch special that consisted of salad, soup and beef entree for $8.50. The server was very efficient and could speak some English. Our menu was in English as well which was great. The restaurant looked festive. Frankly, we pay more in the U.S. for less quality food. My husband who eats a lot of Mexican food said he would highly recommend this restaurant.

“Absurdly High Prices for less than average food”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

I recall when this restaurant opened. They served good food at reasonable prices and made the best tequila based drinks in the city. It is now overpriced, empty and the food has deteriorated in quality. They seem to think they can make up for the lack of customers by raising the prices. Not.Very.Smart.

“Ok, so its an attempt to catch the Mexican atmosphere with some local affinity to it”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The place is ok, but we were not very impressed given the prices versus what we were served. We came at a time where the place was not crowded, so it was pleasant sitting and relaxing,. Enjoyed it. recommend it.
