I booked this restaurant for the choice of my daughters 18th birthday party. They have the perfect room downstairs for a private party. It was a perfect setting and the night was fantastic. I ordered a buffet for 30 people and it was yummy food and plenty to go round. The waitress that served us that evening and served behind the bar was really attentive to our needs but really joined in with us too. Her name was Jess from Australia and was a delight. Nothing was too much trouble. The Manageress on duty that evening ( whose name escapes me ) could not do enough to help and make the night perfect for us. All together it was a really great evening with the help of a great venue with lovely food and kind and efficient staff. I would always recommend this venue.

My daughter took me here for my Mother's Day pressie and what a treat it was. The nachos were crispy & delicious with really fresh salsa and guacamole. I had the homemade chilli burrito which was delicious with a lovely smokey flavour. Would definitely visit again.

I've eaten here 3 times - the food has always been consistently good and tasty and the service and atmos great - a good time always had by all - I would definitely recommend it if you're looking for somewhere relaxing for lunch or busy/happening for dinner with mates. They also have a bar downstairs with DJ's! And you can get Burritos to takeaway! :-)

Great location for New Street Station and also the nearby Premier Inn. We ate on a Monday night around 8.30pm. It was surprisingly busy but didn't have to wait for a table. Be aware that there is a variety of seating: low pouffes at the same heights as tables at the front, tables/ chairs on stilts next to the bar and conventional tables near the bar and further back, so if you have a preference you may wish to book.
The food was excellent and plentiful. We shared a small nachos to start and it was enormous. In other mexican places I've been to (like Wahaca) it would have been classed as a sharing plate - and priced accordingly - this place is great value for money. The size of the starter did make us rethink our mains, but I still opted for a main meal Burrito (comes with sweet potato fries) which was delicious, but I couldn't finish it. The menu is quite flexible- main meals are available without sides and there are individual plates for mixing, tapas style.
Nice cocktails too- not just the usual mojitos. I will definitely return and bring friends with big appetites. If there was one thing I'd change, I'd make the music a bit less loud as we struggled to talk to each other without raising our voices at times. Still, it added to the atmosphere but my mum struggled a bit to hear.
