I had an amazing time here. Firstly, the place looks unbelievable, going down the stairs to get to the restaurant, tables and the walls. All together I felt I'm in Tijuana! Loved the atmosphere, staff were super friendly, food was great.

The atmosphere is somewhat Mexican but this is one of the worst Mexican food I have ever had. We paid 10,929 yen for 2 people, and we're never coming here again. Firstly, we made a reservation, walked in, and they made us stand right in...More

It is not typical TeX-Mex restaurants in Japan. It's more Authentic Mexican restaurant. Love the atmosphere and foods.I feel like I'm in a restaurant in Somewhere in Mexico.Love the Mariachi band as well. It's Little bit expensive but will definitely go back.

This is by far the worst restaurant I've ever been in Tokyo. Shocking! The men's toilet was overflowing with urine and with no attempt from the staff to clean it. So bad that it actually went over anyone's shoes who went in the toilet. The...More

Random craving for Mexican food turned into a great night for the wife and I. The servers knew exactly when we were done with a course and had the next one ready to go. Wasn't expecting to have great Mexican in Tokyo.

This restaurant is a wonderful surprise . . . you descend several flights of stairs from street level and the environment gets more Mexican with each step! We loved the fun and festive atmosphere, the roving mariachi band, and the delicious food. Had nachos and...More

If you enjoy Mexican food, you will surely find Fonda to be a charming experience that fulfills that craving for great Mexican. The tacos I had for dinner were very good and full of flavor. The guacamole was amazing and the margaritas were fantastic and...More

Tonight I visited for the third time. The first time was a dinner with girlfriends and I don't recall service being a huge problem that time, although that could be because I was busy chatting so it wasn't as noticeable. The second time, my husband...More

Located underground in the place you would never expect such a spacious and atmospheric restaurant. I was all the time wondering what was located in these huge rooms before. Service is really good; Waiters seem too busy at times but they are really doing their...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
