Met my sister-from-another-mister here a month ago. Hayfever was KILLING me, omg it was so bad and I needed a) to hide inside b) some alcohol to numb the histamines a little. I also needed about a thousand tissues for the almost constant sneezing I and the other diners were subjected to.
The service was a little slow unfortunately but the food was good: I had a burrito, my SfaM had something...more
Okay, so, this is really not 'authentic' Mexican food. More like Mexican-inspired.
On the other hand, if we disregard that, it's pretty decent. I really like their taquitos and the drinks, and it has a pretty nice atmosphere. I wouldn't come here alone, it's definitely a place for friends to share. That said, their tapas are small. Good, but quite small for the price. I did like the chicken...more
First off, this is not Mexican food. There is feta. There is a distinct lack of authenticity throughout. It claims to be authentic and Mexican. As someone who has eaten a lot of Mexican food in both the US and in Mexico, this is neither authentic Mexican, Tex-Mex nor anything in between.
Also: Oaxaca. Don't treat your audience as idiots.
Now that that's out of the way, I can review this...more
Decent enough Mexican-inspired food without blowing my socks off - a nice enough location with friendly staff. I enjoyed some things more than others; highs and lows really emphasising the average star rating I have given with this review.
I want to emphasise the Mexican street food INSPIRED nature of the food on offer; I don't think anything there would be welcomed as authentic by Mexicans...more
I ordered the Beef Burrito and was disappointed with the actual amount of beef in it. Just a few strips and the rest was filling (rice, beans, cabbage, green rice, etc.).
The ambiance was nice, but not Mexican at all. The music selection was mostly Salsa and Cumbia. Not very Mexican.
To me, this was more of a Tex-Mex restaurant, but the flavor was not what you'd find in Texas or Mexico....more
