Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

On a recent trip to Phu Quoc we got chatting with the restaurant owners Dad who recommended his sons Mexican restaurant in Ho Chi Minh! We decided to eat here on our last night in Vietnam and it was truly excellent! The food was extremely...tasty and we would highly recommend eating here if you are HCMC. We all agreed it was the best Mexican food we have ever eaten. The cocktails were also impressive ! Thank you for a very nice eating experience.More

After travelling Vietnam for a while we thought we'd not have Vietnamese one night. We picked Gringos and although it was slightly out the way on foot from the main area of Ho Chi Minh it was easy to get there with Grab. The food...was amazing and probably was one of the best Mexicans we have ever eaten at. They catered for gluten free and the staff were really friend and attentive. This is a must try for anyone visiting Ho Chi Minh.More

Authentic Mexican food in Vietnam, is that even possible, how good could it actually be? Well it’s authentic for sure, right down to the simplest detail of ordering a Corona beer or the large selections of Tequila for you. No matter what you order, you...can’t go wrong. You could close you eyes with every bite, and it will send you to Mexico. Carnitas was slow cooked to perfection, the guacamole with chips is a MUST!!! I will have dreams about how smooth and delicious that guacamole. Staff was friendly, the place immaculate, great decor, and plenty of seating. If you are looking for a break from the local food, or just want to try some of the best Mexican food, then this place is a must on your visit to the city.More

Nice cozy little place when you are dying for some Mexican food! The prices are reasonable, the staff very friendly, helpful and the food is just absolutely delicious!! The burrito is big enough to eat with two people ! They do also take away and...delivery ! This place is starting to be known by the locals and expats already, few tables were reserved when we arrived. We come back for sure, we love the atmosphere!More

Excellent margaritas and White Russian Horchata (50% off in happy hour 5pm to 7.30pm so around 70VND each!). The batter on the shrimp and fish tacos was crunchy, and the salad crisp and fresh. I’d choose the standard carnitas over the michoacan version as I’m...a bit picky and the fatty bits not to my liking. The quesadilla was fantastic and the juiciest I think I’ve ever had 😊 The others enjoyed their carnitas chimichangas too - one was customised to leave out the rice. The restaurant was clean and tidy and the best small restaurant bathroom I’ve been to so far. Will be back next time we’re in HCMC! Was so keen to eat I forgot to take photos of the food 😂More

I am Mexican-American and have lived throughout Vietnam for 5yrs. This place is absolutely the best Mexican restaurant in the country. The cuisine uses authentic Mexican ingredients and the flavors are incredible. Also have a good selection of cocktails. The carnitas are a must try....I highly recommend this dining experience for any tourists, expats, or locals. You will not be disappointed! Coach ToddMore

Wife & I rocked the Pollo Asado Burritos, and they were delicious! The kids got chicken quesadillas, and they were also so good! The flour tortillas are what separate this place from other Mexican restaurants. Also, we got a chance to check out a new...item on the menu; Czech vegan pork tacos were a pleasant surprise!More
