A friend of mine suggested 12 years back to try the tres leches. It was divine and good for those who don't like it too sweet. Had the chimichangas beef and servings are pretty big. Had to sit outside coz they only had 2 tables for 6 free and was eating solo. I did not like the noisy ceiling fan... More

Went there a couple of weeks ago with wifey and mom. Very disappointing. Good Mexican food we are used to is usually very tasty and spicy, but what we ordered was blend and clearly lacked of passion and respect to traditional Mexican food. The fajitas (beef) was a disgrace to Mexican cooking, basically 40% peppers, 35% oignons, 25% meat, tasteless,... More

Mexican hot spot with nice ambience but with a pushy service. The guacamole was yummy, burritos, tacos and quesadillas were very fiery and classic. We had gone therefor a quick snack but were really impressed with the ambience and authentic Mexican flavors. Will definitely be back for more. I also found my favorite hot sauce cholula in their small store... More

I visited this restaurant with my family. The fajitas were delicious and the guacamole was sublime. The service, however, did not match the quality of the food, as we had to ask multiple times for things like plates and cutlery. All in all, though, an enjoyable experience.

One of the better if not best midrange Mexican restaurant in Dubai. Relaxed vibe with lots of good food options. Can't go wrong with their guacamole. Their fish taco is also worth a try (although it used to be better when they had it grilled instead of fried).

After living in NYC and being spoiled by Mexican food, I have to say that this is the most over rated place I have been to in Dubai. Such a hype for no reason. First off the place is expensive for not being in a hotel, second the food quality isn't good. We started off with guacamole and it was... More

It was a pleasant place to eat Mexicain food, the restaurant was full after only few minutes us been there, witch is a good sign. The food was good, the guacamole freshly made in front of us, the margarita was also home made, and we were able to control how much sugar they put in, basically all the food his... More
