I found this by chance. It was a saturday evening and it had a queue, but we were sat at a table despite not having a reservation. A novel experience, a chance to speak Spanish and very good value for money. Glad I ate there.

Buzzy and fun Mexican food place. Unfortunately the food on the night we were there was disappointing. The vegetarian tostadas were dry with no sauce whatsoever, the chicken enchiladas filled just with dry shredded chicken, and the portions in general very small. After eating a...More
