Stopped in for a late lunch while visiting Hamilton . The Duty Manager, Anthony, was a great host and the food - I can't fault, absolutely delicious for both meat eaters and vegetarians. I recommend the chickpea dish 🙌🏽

Visited Che Chorizo during school holidays and was not let down. Food was insanely good and service was top notch. In particular the Beef Short Ribs were absolutely stunning. Will definitely visit again.
