Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I never write reviews, but the service and food was so bad I did this time. They do use Mexican names, but the food is not even remotely Mexican, so much grease it is bland and the service, one waitress for only us in the restaurant! I asked for the most Mexican dish on the menu and she looked at me blankly and said the hamburger! If that gives you a clue! The margaritas were very good though. Oh and super expensive!

Ok I have no idea what kind of food this place serves but it is not Mexican. Decor may be reminiscent of fake Mexican but the food is so far from real Mexican it’s scary. I mean when was the last time you found Brussel sprouts or Broccoli as sides in Mexican, Quesadilla with no sour cream. Mexicans would die. No refried beans. I mean how can a Mexican restaurant have no refried beans. It’s like the chef tried to localize Mexican cuisine and just completely lost the plot. Margaritas tasted like cheap kids cordial. Sad. If you’ve had a good margarita in Southern California or Mexico then just order beer. They hopefully can’t screw that up. Maybe my expectations were too high but if you claim to be an ethnic restaurant be that. Dining tip. Find another place.

Not a place I’ll visit again as nowhere near as good as last time.The place was cold and the food was overpriced for what was served up. A carafe of margarita in the smallest carafe in history that was 90% ice just isn’t on

Food was average tasting, we had the cauliflower dish that we are not sure what its supposed to taste like, Mexican or Indian. There weren't enough of cheese in the Cheese Quesadilla. We had also the Chickpea patatas, and the Butternut pumpkin and Chickpea tacos - both underwhelming. We won't be back for food again sadly.

So disappointing that a birthday celebration was ruined. This business accepted my booking and required confirmation twice via email and text but couldn’t be bothered to advise they were closed for business. Very poor service for this restaurant chain .

Being from Latin America and knowing Mexico very well , it was so disappointing to try this food. Tasted like Indian and Chinese food. In a rare way. They don’t have a clue about Mexican flavor. Even for being Indian it tasted poorly. It doesn’t even honor good Indian flavors. And staff was a disappointment too. Food in Auckland is expensive. So you feel very bad to spend your many in a place like this. Not recommended at all.

Staff bored and disinterested. Living off past glories. The owners should be ashamed of this run down dive. This place has gone from bad to worse. Looks very tired. It’s gone down hill since it opened when the place rocked. The only saving grace was the fried chicken. Authentic Mexican? Yeah no

Called in here on a very busy Friday night. The restaurant was very loud, and the walls way too over-adorned. The taste and quality of the food was good but the servings were very small and very overpriced. They advertise their Mexican fried chicken as very spicy and ‘not to be missed’, but if you want spice then I suggest you miss this dish - it doesn’t have much bite at all. Also steer clear of the ‘carafe’ of margarita as the carafe is half-sized and mostly full of ice cubes. The service is also questionable as my wife and I had ordered a salad, the chicken and tacos but all our food was delivered at different times.

Mexico is generally consistently good. It can get expensive for the meal sizes but the service has always been good. Food comes out fast so can also be a good place to go for a quick meal or lunch.

That just sums it up. If you’ve had proper Mexican food, don’t ruin that by coming here. There are other places in the area to enjoy. Pork ribs chewy and dry. Fast food quality at a premium.

From the margaritas that are made from mix to the rest of the menu, a pretty bad experience. I get the distinct impression that this is more of a drinking place than a restaurant. Nothing wrong with that of course, only trying to set expectations for future guests.
