"Excellent and very wide range of dishes and drinks all delicious and hot (heat and spice wise). We ordered 8 dishes between and could not finish a couple, I particularly enjoyed the gambas.

"Excellent service and generous portions too, spot on! Reasonably priced too landing in at under £90 including 2 drinks each."

Owned by couple Karl and his partner Edina Tchumak, the pair have earned an excellent reputation because of their passion for friendly service and great food.

Co-owner Edina said: "The reasons for the great reviews are the consistancy, friendly service and honesty. We advise the customers on how much to order and talk them out if we think they over order.

"Karl and myself, we set the bar but we could not do that without our lovely team! They are fun to work with and they love to come and eat here even on their days off. We are a Mexican themed restaurant who serve honest and tasty food without the bells and whistles."
