We went for lunch today and enjoyed the carnitas tacos, asparagus, zucchini and pea sprout salad and the beef enchiladas (spicy!). The spices on the salad were excellent. Upon seeing what other tables ordered, we should've gotten the beef tacos. Portions are not large but sufficient and very tasty! The down side is that they don't have very many tables... More

I been spending some time in China and for the past 2 weeks or so I have been craving Mexican food. The place can be tricky to find but the food is definitely worthy . My friend and I shared the guacamole and the queso fundido . The guacamole was perfect, I personally like when the guac comes with chunks... More

Great wine by the glass! Happy hour includes a free taco. During the week it's everyday, Friday and Saturday 17:00-19:00 I believe! Tacos were great, a lot of choices and flavors! Several types of hot sauces but they need a hotter one! All were very mild for me! Will be going back and the prices were reasonable!

Not easy to find and thankfully the very helpful staff guided me, it was just after opening time yet all but 2 of the tables were reserved and it's easy to see why. Simply furnished with a bar-type casual feel, young and friendly servers, very reasonable prices, choice of portion size and good list of alcohol including an excellent local... More

Delicious tacos, semi authentic. Highly recommend carnitas, pescado, al pastor, and hongos. My personal fav is actually the Hongos taco, which has mushrooms and veggies. Combos cost 50 Chinese dollars each (3 tacos), and other tacos goes around 50 Chinese dollars for three as well. White sangria is delish; 45 Chinese dollars but goes well with the food, especially the... More

Here for the week of national holiday. This is a great place for tacos. It's hard to find, look right next door to Home Plate BBQ. They opened for dinner at 5, and they were almost packed when we got there. Good food, will come back.

Taco Bar is the best shared secret in Beijing...imaginative take on the taco! Fresh ingredients...flavour bursts. The staff are young Chinese men and women who must have the best boss in the world...high energy, great service, smiles and warm welcomes.... the best margaritas!!! We love to sit at the bar and take in the warm chaos of a Saturday night!... More
