A group of girls and myself booked a table on say night, we waited 25 mins for two drinks to be made , one of which was non alcoholic !
Over all we waited an hour and half for our main meal which was of poor quality, the salmon was over cooked and very dry n it was sitting on half a jar of pickled red cabbage , which tasted nasty. The peach and pineapple saled had no peach in it , my friends steak was ordered rare but the middle of the steak was stone cold. The bar attender broke five glasses in the two hour and a bit hours we were there as he was the only bar staff and completely rushed off his feet. We are certain we saw people leaving without eating as the wait for food and drinks were ridiculous , we were all looking forward to our meal , unfortunately the only good thing about it was the company I kept at the table. Sorry chimichangas , you really have put me off of returning :-(

This is quite a new restaurant and from inexperienced staff to average food it really shows. Someone from head office needs to go and give them guidance, it's nice inside, the staff are okay but maybe need to brush up on their English, but it just wasn't the chimichangas we know and love everywhere else.

This restaurant hasn't been open very long in Brentwood and at first glance it is a typical chain restaurant - such as you'd find in London's main tourist traps. However I'd heard a few good reports and decided to give it a go on a very busy Friday night.
Service was great. The restaurant is huge with probably 100 or more covers, but thankfully staff are plentiful.
The house white was excellent value and very drinkable. The menu is extensive and the dishes we ordered were delicious. Unfortunately portions were tiny. A side of chips came in a minute dish - about the same size as a ramekin you'd cook a creme brûlée in. Such a shame as I was so enjoying the quality of the food. It wasn't cheap. Not ridiculously expensive either, but dubious value for money because of the portions.

my boyfriend and I went here only Satuday night (25th Aug) it was really nice. Never got to go to the one in Hornchurch as it was always busy! The food is lovely, i had the Chimichanga which is a buritto with cheese, peppers, sour cream etc with chicken filling it was lovely, my boyfriend had the Mexican paella which he loved (if you like rice go here, i think everything comes with rice). The atmosphere was great there was a Hen party but they obviously were only starting out there so not loud at all! It was a mix of people mostly couples though. Make sure if you like hot and spicy you have the prawns to start they certainly lived up to the name but they were lovely!!! Service is good they were really all lovely. Great value for money.
