Great food and great service. Small place that punches well above its weight. The food was great and the service was warm and friendly. No concerns about recommending this place to anyone.

It's a great place for friends to meet and enjoy good food with good vibes. Always feel welcomed at this place, tacos are fantastic and staffs are friendly and attentive. Befriend with them and you might get free tequila shots! It's a small restaurant so...do make sure you book before heading over to avoid disappointment! Overall, I'd recommend this place to everyone.More

Good enough carnitas tacos and pollo quesadillas in Singapore! Get lime margaritas by the bottle, it's cheaper!

If you're looking for authentic Mexican Food in Singapore then look no further. Papi's Tacos is by far once of the best restaurants with all u need in one stop. Staff are friendly, music is good and the Ambience is just perfect to feel like...you are in Mexico eating those Pulled Beef Crunchy Tacos and not to mention the Juicyness of their Tacos. Special mention to their very own hot sauces out of which the Habanero is the best I've had ever. Will definitely make it a point to visit them at least once a weekMore

4 of us ordered a taco platter and after our first taco, it was so delicious we HAD to go for round 2. We would have went for round 3 if our stomachs allowed a 5th and 6th taco. Prawn taco would be my fav!...Defo would go back again.More

I got a takeaway from Papi’s Tacos yesterday evening - we went for the taco set for 4 people with a choice of 3 meats and 3 sides. I felt compelled to write a review as the food was absolutely fantastic. All of the meats...were great... pulled pork... chicken... pulled beef. The pulled beef was a definite 10/10. The sides were all freshly prepared and the habanero sauce was so tasty. Portions were generous with loads of tacos. Great value for money all in all and the best Mexican food I’ve had in Singapore after 4 years here. Recommended.More

The food I’ve tried here brings me back to those amazing times when my grandma used to cook loca Mexican food when I was a kid. The taste of the tacos is almost the same to those you could expect to pick up outside the...metro “Balderas” station but clean and safe. If I was to close my eyes while drinking one of their delicious margaritas I could honestly feel the sea breeze from Cabo before I get naughty holiday ideas whilst finishing my second round. If you’re after some out of the box Mexican food then this is not your place but if you want to take your tongue into a flavours adventure... this is the place to be! The staff that runs this place is incredible. Popping up alone after a hard day on the grind is easily forgotten when they greet you by your name and put a cold as frothy in front of you. What else can I say... the chef is Mexican and the manager a weir Mexican-Chinese mix so... there’s your answer!More

Papi’s Tacos is my favorite! The best and only authentic Mexican restaurant in Singapore. Being from Texas, I have a very high standard for Mexican food and it is true “Papi’s knows Best”! Delicious authentic food by talented Chef Mauricio served up by Ivan and...the super friendly staff. I am there every week. My home away from home! Deliciosa comida, salsas y bebidas! 🌮🌮🌮🍹🍹🍹🌯🌯🌯More
