Great tacos, burritos, ambiance. Tend to come here when in Melbourne - the vegetarian and vegan options are really great!

Loved it, tasted fantastic and even better as nearly everything is gluten free! And doesn't burn a hole in your wallet!

Very nice Mexican food in a good location. Well priced. No fuss. Love that everything is vegetarian and many dishes had vegan options.

Went here with a friend and sat outside on nice night. Food was really average - ordered a nachos and another thing I can't remember but it was all very tasteless. Great to see more veg/vegan restaurants but this one didn't live up to expectations....More

I was expecting more from this place, but it seemed to be little more than a cool place to be seen. I thought more taste would have been evident, but for some reason, there wasn't. Perhaps more onion would be the way to get more...More

After several attempts of getting a table we finally got one. Thinking to myself this place must be awesome as it is always packed with eager customers. I was so wrong. Everything we ordered lacked flavour and most of our plates were barely touched. Wait...More
