The Restaurant had nothing mexican about it !!!!! I mean seriously Sheesha in Latin america ......think about it. The service was bad as we had to wait 10 to 15 minutes before anyone could attend us. When we complained about it, the waitress told us that we should have clicked the service buzzer (A small remote device which has to be pressed to call attendant) which by the way was on the next table. The food was overvalued and the portions were too big for one person even with a serious appetite. I had a rib-eye steak and the sauce was cold. All in All not a good experience at all. I do not think I will be heading there anymore !!

I went here today for lunch, It is in convenient location at the Pavilion shopping center but that's the only positive thing.
It was not busy and I got a table no problem, the waitress told me there were lunch specials and as I was on a time limit I ordered one which included a soft drink - 15 Ringitt so not expensive. I did not want coke but Diet coke so that's what I got - not included in lunch deal but no issue.

When the food arrived (15 mins) I got no service at all - no fork, spoon, condiments etc initially but when I did I found the food was icy cold in the middle not completely frozen but nearly - I returned it and asked told them I did not want it microwaved and just wanted my bill.

No word of apology and a bill for 11.6 Ringitt for diet coke - pathetic effort, disgusting food, bad staff & management and a rip off.

This has to be the worst Mexican food I've ever had. The chicken fajitas looks like it's swimming in a curry-like sauce and taste nothing like Mexican food. As for the chips & salsa, the chips were a bit stale and the salsa was flat! Very expensive and certainly not value for money. The happy hour is a joke, only something like 30% off the second drink. I certainly would not recommend this place to anybody.

What a value for money luch. My daughter had a delightful freshly prepared burget which ate with gusto. I thouroughly enjoed the Mexica Canteena vegetable soup which was very gastronomically tasty.

A place I would recommend and I am considered a gourmet cook.

One of the worst value for money restaurants I have ever been to. The food was basic at best and very expensive for what you receive. The seating is torn and the menus are in tatters. I guess that sums up the whole experience . . . . .
