Ordered the enchilada and it was pretty close to the stuff that I had in the US but with the right asian portion. The meet was flavorful but not overpowering. Nice ambiance but the prices are a bit on the high side. I must say even the waiters follow the US style where the asked how's the food while I... More

Knowing our penchant for Mexican food, our close family friends in KL took us to this wonderful Mexican restaurant. Everything we had here (ensalata de carne, nachos muchos with minced beef, chicken burrito & taco) were delicioso & in remarkably generous portions!

A friend recommended the food here. I must admit it is FANTASTIC. The mussels are fresh and soft. The chimichanga and the quesadillas are very tasty. The steak is not hard. The ambience is excellent. The design with the colourful drawings on the wall, the indoor fountain with the water dripping sound, and the occasional Mexican music/ songs. EXCEPT for... More

Have been there a couple of times last being for my Mother's birthday, yesterday. Most of us being vegetarian was... More

My favourite place, great Mexican food, fantastic margaritas, friendly staff. Finding the place easy, ample car park outside restaurant. Better make appointment as place can get crowded. Wish they'd extend their hours and open for lunch on Sunday's too .

A little bit hidden away off the main drag, but what a find. I can't believe it has been there for nine years, and I've lived in Kl for eight, but I only discovered the restaurant recently when I was invited to join a dinner with a colleague. I now go back weekly, and consider myself a "regular". The El-Presidente... More
