Super friendly staff although we occasionally had to flag them down. The classic Margaritas were so delicious I nearly killed myself drinking them. I tried some chocolate coffee spin on it which was absolutely disgusting (coffee, fresh cream and lime don't mix) but the manager took it away and gave us free shots to make up. The food was pretty... More

I have lived here in Shanghai for 4 years and have been dining at Mexico Lindo. The food is good and the atmosphere is also good. They also have great margaritas. It is a worth a visit.

Food was good and staff friendly. Went with a Mexican friend so the staff was really chatting him up. Got the lunch special for 65 rmb includes beer. I thought the food was expensive considering in Beijing the same burrito at some places is 25 rmb. It's OK if you are in the area or laowai road but don't go... More

This is a good and cheap option for families if you want to have dinner outside on sunday, kids under 12 eat for free if together with one adult. Food is average and service nothing special but at least is a cheap option.

I am here at least once every visit to Shanghai. The American owner is mostly present and a nice dude. TexMex food is very good especially the fresh guacamole, prepared at the table. A real must is the frozen Margarita!

Chips with no salsa??? Come on, the Mexicans would have revolted! Anyway, my friends and I went for their Monday night special, and we waited and waited and waited and waited for over an hour for our meals. What's worse is that I had to keep begging for the tortilla chips that are supposed to come free with the meal,... More

Happy hour (buy 1 get 1 free) goes until 8pm, then starts the live music. They have the usual Mexican flare on the menu card, we choose the fajita's one beef and one spicy chicken. Both were quite good. The restaurant has a quite familiar feeling to it, many guests seem know each other giving the sense that there are... More

A friend recommended it, I was put off by a September review but was feeling hopeful! We came from Pudong. Chips and 2 kinds of salsa free with refills. We ordered tamales (masa tasted great!) with shredded pork. They were a little dry but we put some of the chunky tomato salsa over them. We ordered chili rellenos but I... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle pockets that have their own unique attractions. The schools have formed pockets of international communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang. Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have built up over the years to cater to these communities. While living here means you are relatively far away from Shanghai’s usual hot spots, the large parks, spacious homes and proximity to great Japanese and Korean food keep the neighborhoods popular.
