What a find! This is quality, fresh, different great food. Loved it and would definitely return. Staff are really helpful and you can tell these people understand food. Really impressed and not being a Mexican food fan usually I look forward to returning here.

Beautifully presented and delicious food. Will definitely go again. I would say worth booking a table if more than a couple of people as it filled up very quickly.

Vibrant, fresh and authentic food served in a container by the Tyne. Still staying loyal to its street food roots, this restaurant delivers at all levels and does not break the bank. Will be back.
