Reviews of Flying Fajita Sistas
I was not that impressed with the place. Maybe neutral is the better word for it. The guys serve Mexican food and it's as good as it gets but we've experienced some unpleasant servicing and attitude. Waiting staff needs to be trained consistently and there need to be regular check-ups.
This is quite a fun place to visit. My partner loves Mexican and so thinks it's great! Me, I'm not such a fan but I do like the atmosphere. It is a good place for parties.
I attended a 21st here a few years ago. There were about 30 guests so they gave us a private back room. We had a banquette menu with lots of cocktails! I have also attended a birthday dinner at the Flying Fajita Sistas. This was just at a big table as opposed to the back room. The service was good and we again had a banquette menu. They were very accommodating and able to cater for a guest who could not eat gluten or capsicum.
Hi my name is Shae, and I'm addicted to Mexican. Introduced to the magnificence of this cuisine at a very young age, I have always searched for GOOD Mexican. Have been meaning to check out FFSistas for too long and finally got there... Overall result, it was okay. The service was pretty spot on, I can't fault that at all.
We sat out on the tight balcony upstairs, the middle table is sort of squashed between the other two tables and the wall. I wouldn't recommend it, we missed out on the ambiance I think.
We ordered the trio of dips, and outed one of them to get the queso in. Huge fan of chili con queso dip, this wasn't one of the best I've had. However saying that, we got the the Pipian: Mexican pesto made with pumpkin seeds and fresh green chile. One of the most delicious dips I've ever had. Don't miss this.
We had the enchildas and the fajitas. The fajitas were cooked to perfection, I had the snapper - however the condiments were extremely scarce, in fact have never seen them so scarce. Definitely requires more. Next time I'd just ask for more!
Keen to get back and try some of the other dishes, for comparison.
Wow! Came here for my birthday on $3 taco night. We had a group so we had the platters and the quality of the tortillas and the fillings has really improved. The fruit in the sangria and beer was a little dodgy and the service a little rushed. BUT another great meal.
The atmosphere is absolutely horrible for those of you under the age of thirty that may not appear to be the biggest money spenders! The door greeter indicated that the booking I
had made for 6.30 was too late to enjoy a meal as we would have to be out in an hour and 20 minutes because the next bookings were due to arrive at 8.00pm which we would need to have exited by that time! There is no feelings of welcome as they indicate they are booked out even though we had a booking AND there were 7 different tables EMPTY!!!! Don't waste your money on an expensiverestaurant!
Just got the $3 Taco Tuesday offer to go. Look, its ok but not great! The tortillas were corn and were pretty dry. the fillings were ok- definitely more Tex-Mex than authentic Mexican. The achiote pork and the chipotle chicken were better than the bean or beef. I found the manager, Tony, to be efficiently polite! NB: takeout gets a 10pc discount for all you discount kings out there!
I love Mexican food but the number of places in Sydney to get really good Mexican are few and far between. I am lucky then that not only do I have Guzman in Newtown for a quick Mexican fix but in close proximity also is this lovely little restaurant in Glebe. Indoors is lovely with an impressive bar at the back and the wall of pain which is hilarious. This place is always buzzing so its a good idea to book, in fact I dont think Ive ever seen it quiet. The atmosphere is great though, not hectic at all, just a good energy. They also have a beautiful little courtyard out the back which is lovely to spend a warm evening in. As for the food, oh so good! Not heavy at all and lots of variety. They are very generous serves though and we have nearly outdone ourselves on the warm dips before weve even started on mains. The burritos and fajitas are great, the quality of the meat is very high, the beef in particular just falls apart under your fork. In fact, I dont think Ive ever had a dish here that Ive been disappointed with. They also do great sangria and a killer margarita. A good selection of beers on offer too.
I've been here a few times and the service is always the same. Cocktails can take a little long to be served, but they are well worth the wait and a reasonable price for the size of the drinks. The food is all delicious and very generous portions so it's great value for money.
I recommend the fajitas, they come with more than your average fajitas and taste delicious.
Book well in advance as it's always booked out, especially Tuesdays for Taco and Tequila Tuesday. Great location, easy to find parking or take public transport as it's so close to Broadway shops.
Really nice consistent mexican dishes. Make sure you book a table as its gets busy and you cant just expected to rock up and get a table. Pretty fast service which means if your going to a movie later on at broadway you can be in and out pretty quickly.
Probably a little pricey but other than that you get a decent feed.
I went here with a couple of friends and we found it to be a pleasant, if unremarkable eating experience. What we liked was the friendly staff decked out in fab OTT hand-embroidered Mexican frocks, the easily shared dishes & the deep, dark & strong Mexican liquor coffees! The burritos were well presented and the tortilla hot & fresh. The side dishes were plentiful & the prawns (which we ordered as our main filling) well cooked. The restaurant has a nice ambience & the outdoor courtyard is serene but mosquito filled- thankfully repellent is readily available on each table!
