Service is slow. Food was below average. The only thing good was the salsa - excellent. We ordered tamale (awful), taco (average), enchilada (average), rice (awful and under-cooked) and beans. The cheese queso was terrible - very grainy cheese - not smooth. Would not go back.

No matter how many Mexican restaurants I've been too in the last 15 years in Dubai, I'm always here with family and friends. It's been our family favourite since a long time and there's no doubt I'll be back here in a month.

There are several eating options at the Millennium Airport Hotel, all with terraces above the hotels pool area. Even in January, the evening temperature was comfortable enough for sitting outside. The service was good, but it was a very slow night for all of the restaurants. I had the beef tacos - very tasty and very tender beef.

Service is lousy, you can sit for ages and still be unnoticeable by the serving staff. Dont dare to amend your order because you cant!! Food is less than average and super greasy

Our dinner last Saturday happened to be in Cactus Jacks in Millennium Airport Hotel in Garhoud. We chose to have a try on this that day because as they claimed it, it's a Fajita Festival. We've been recently loving Spanish and Mexican foods so why not a Latino restaurant as well. For me they're all related and taste close to... More

The staff are friendly and helpful, and will advise with the menu regarding how hot some of the dishes are. I found the portions to be generous, without being American excessive size. The range of dishes is somewhat quirky but that is part of the fun, trying something new. Best with a few friends to share some starters with.
