“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012 via mobile

We went to las delicias peruvianas a few days ago and thought that both the food and people were amazing. Ral peruvian in a real peruvian place. After reading very goof reviews on Cheen Huaye we decided to try this restaurant expecting to have a similar experience of quality and good service. We were very disappointed. Appart from the ceviche which was quite good the rest of the food was average at best and the service would have to be ranked among the slowest (we are talking a solid hour and a half wait for the food) i've ever experienced. Slow service average food and high prices, unless you like that combination i would not recommend this place.

“Yucatan Cusine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Cheen Huaye has some of the most interesting and unique Mexican food I've had, as they specialize in Yucatan cuisine. The place is quiet and unpretentious in a strip mall, and is great for families with small children.

We started off with the excellent salsa and chips that they bring to the table, the best guacamole I've ever had, along with a great tomato based tortilla soup. The star was the main course, which was Molcajete, grilled steak, sausage and Panela cheese with vegetables and a tomatillo sauce - unbelievable flavors.

Service was very friendly - highly recommended!

“The best authentic Mexican food in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Cheen Huaye has the best authentic Mexican food in Miami! I've been eating here since the first opened and have never had a bad meal.They use fresh ingredients. Their home made salsa has a delicious smoky flavor. The tequila lime chicken is light and savory. Their mole sauce is a perfectly balanced blend of chocolate and spice. The staff are friendly and the service is attentive. If you are hungry for a delicious Mexican meal, this is THE place to go. And it is priced right!

“Been looking for Great Mexican Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

The first time I stopped in I just tried the Tortilla Soup. I received a large bowl of hot tasty soup with fresh garnishes. I decided to go back with my wifa and another friend. It was a Saturday afternoon and they were busy but not to crowded. We got some Dos Equis Ambers and were served a great fire roasted salsa.
The dishes were fresh hot and wonderfully flavorful. Where all other places I have tried here in 5 years for Mexican food this is the best. Even the smooth well flavored re-fried beans were great memorable.
The Sopas,Tostones Rellanos, and the Flautas were so good we barley spoke as we enjoyed these culinary creations. Fresh toppings and care in plating was obvious. I couldn't leave without trying their fresh Churros with a dolce de leche caramel. Wonderful from start to finish.
I will be going back to try their weekend brunch.

“Unexpected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

Look past the strip mall and you will enjoy a delicious meal and wonderful service! We had the tamale appetizer. Two people had the skirt steak and said it was delicious. The mahi mahi was excellent! The owners and staff were very gracious. The service was attentive but not intrusive. We will definitely eat there again!
