Visit with my family and chose Tia’s because it had a vegan menu, even better that it was happy hour 👍 The restaurant was beautifully set, with Mexican Day of the dead items on all the walls. The food was great and we all enjoyed...More

A very good friend making a first visit to Durham to visit her nephew at Northumbria University were given a first class impression of traditional North East of England hospitality, along with high quality Mexican food. I've dined here before on a few previous occasions,...More

My wife and I popped into Tia's as we thought it'd be a nice little gem and it seems to receive great reviews. This particular evening there was only our table and another seated, so maybe the lack of custom meant something changed in the...More

First the negatives: The restaurant was overly busy for the staff to cope, and we ended up having to wait over 20 minutes for our table, and too long for meals (starters and mains). The positives: The staff are very friendly, and the food was...More

This is the second time I’ve visited Tia’s and been blown over by how amazing the food and staff are. The sharer starters are exactly that- sharers! Don’t try to eat one to yourself I promise it’ll be too much, but they are amazingly tasty!...More

Visited here for a work trip with colleagues. A very enjoyable meal. Good food and good service. Much better than a bland chain place. The tias rose was excellent and a chicken hanging kabab is highly recommended. A very good trip.
