Visited the restaurant with friends for a casual early evening meal. Food was plentiful, well prepared, hot and tasty. Its also excellent value with the evening/happy hour discount. Atmosphere was alittle lacking, mainly because there were only one or two other tables occupied. Service was a little slow considering the restaurant was not that busy, but overall a good experience and it was a pleasant change from Chinese/Pizza.Indian food.
Will dine here again.

think this will be my last use of groupon/living social vouchers,obviously there is a reason these type of restaurants use these sites as they cant fill there tables,location is not the best area of Newcastle but that isn't a reason to not go.inside rumba tries to be authentic Mexican,but fails,about 6 other couples dining with music in the background,but no atmosphere whatsoever,felt like I was sitting in someone elses dining room not great.food itself is well average,dont think the chef is Mexican at all think he may have a Mexican cookbook which he is using,brucheta is not white toast with tomatoes/salad on,nachos were a huge portion though piled high,both struggled to finnish,mains were ok packed with more rice and beans than actual meat itself,my crispy tacos were deep fried hence greasy and heavy,burritos again full of rice and beans rather than meat,if they got the food as good as the service you would have a decent place here as you cant fault it at all polite,and given enough time to order and just enough time between starter and main course,so a round of applause for the waiter,authentic? hmmm,just not quite there yet

Initially wary of the "rough" end of Heaton road, this restaurant was a delight! Food incredible, service efficient and friendly and really nice atmosphere.

Went here on a Saturday evening using a groupon voucher. I picked bruschetta for my starter this was served on toasted sliced white bread! The main course was chicken fajita wraps served with fries on skin what we actually got was frozen anaemic chips.
In all not an authentic mexican meal more like an old el passo kit bought in from the local supermarket.
This was my second visit to this restaurant all I can say is the quality of food has gone down rapidly or maybe they have changed chefs! Needless to say wont be going back.
