It has been several years since we had been to Flying Burrito Brothers - our last visit was very ‘meh’, but as a result of looong waits where we had planned to go for dinner, and rubbish weather, we decided to chance Flying Burrito Brothers...again and are very pleased we did. The food was excellent; great quality, good quantity and really good service. We had a party of seven, no one ordered the same meal and everyone was really happy with the food. So, why not a 5/5? Value for money. I know, you pay for quality, but I felt things were slightly overpriced. Not enough to detract from the evening, certainly not enough for me to feel dissatisfied, it was a great experience and we will definitely return.More

Absolutely faultless. We ordered the tasting entree plate and the pork chimichanga. So much food, so fresh and delicious! The pomegranate Marg is also a must.

I am a big fan of Mexican food. I like it hot, which is a rarity in New Zealand. I started with the Jalapenos Rellenos, crumbed, stuffed jalapenos. The cheese stuffing was nicely spiced and very tasty. My main course was a vegetarian tortilla. It...was filled with heaps of mushroom, feta and spinach. I like mine hotter than it is served as standard but there were some nice hot sauces to remedy that. I tried, and enjoyed, a taster of different Herradure tequilas. I highly recommend you try a range.More

We ordered our food, waited for some time and then the waiter came back to tell us they had run out of guacamole. At a mexican restaurant. Unbelievable. What did we want instead? My friend had extra sour cream however it was disappointing. My Chicken...De Pollo had a nice filling but the bottom of the casing was burnt alas. Then the eftpos wasnt working. An average experience at best.More

Fabulous family meal here for the first time this week! Service was very good, food didn’t take too long to come and was delicious, sensible portion sizes. I took a star off as the toilet access was awkward, can’t stand it when a door opens...almost on top of the actual toilet and you have to be a yoga specialist to get in and out 😄 also could’ve been cleaner.More

I went to have dinner on the 04/01 - It was very disappointing! I was craving for Ceviche, so I ordered a CEVICHE PACIFICO (Fish cured in lime & finished with coconut cream, chilli & cilantro). The flavor was very artificial so I asked the...waiter if they used fresh lemon / lime and he said they used bottled "fresh" lemon juice. I might suggest you squeeze your own lemons and price it a bit higher if necessary or remove Ceviche from your menu as it tastes bad with a very fake flavour. I ordered a few things more, pretty average. Not impressed.More

My wife and I chose this restaurant because we really liked it when we visited a couple of years ago. This time it was very disappointing. I had the carne (beef) fajitas and the meat was dry and chewy. The filling mixture had a nasty...aftertaste. The black bean accompaniment looked and tasted like it was straight out of a can. Not at all impressed.More

Arrived a little before they opened but were welcomed in regardless. Food was tasty and plentiful but the stand out was our young server, who was attentive, efficient and kind. A complete asset to your business.

I enjoyed the quesadilla with mushroom, really nice. The kids menu is very affordable and the passionfruit margarita was not too strong. I loved it

Went there Friday night for dinner. Was there at 6ish. It was quite busy and our meal didn't come for 40 mins. The food was great but the wait was disappointing.
