Reviews of MEXICO - Surry Hills
This resturant is absolutley appauling. Shocking service and extremly rude, they gave us food without us ordering food and then they overcharged us on food we didn't order. My friends and I had our christmas party there and we will never be back again. I highly recomend going other mexican resturant in sydney.
It was a rainy night and I wanted a quick bite with friends. We ran into Mexico and were warmly greeted by the host and shown to a seat. The atmosphere was great, funky and lots of chatter from the other patrons all having a great time sitting around large wooden tables and benches.The staff are dressed in colorful outfits, adorned with flower's in their hair, Frida Kahlo
style. We ordered a few soft shelled tacos and they were amazing! Tasty morsels of chicken, prawn, and interesting accompaniments that formed a party in my mouth... Needless to say we ordered more tacos... Pretty sure we tried them all! Come try it! I'll be here again...
Formerly District Dining (which we also loved), MEXICO is Warren Turnbull's newest venture after roaring success in... wait for it... Auckland.
My husband and I popped in just before Christmas when we were in the area. We came for lunch on a Saturday without any booking and it didn't seem like we would have needed one. There was hardly anyone there when it opened (at noon), but it did pick up toward the end of our meal. The staff were relaxed but friendly and helped us with our order.
We ordered margaritas, almost every soft taco they had on the menu (including a salmon taco special that was available that day), the fried chicken, the prawn quesadilla and the ceviche and had a grand ol' time in the balcony area. If you think that sounds like too much food for two people, you're probably right. We were completely stuffed and probably didn't need the last two dishes we ordered - the ceviche and the quesadilla, both of which were larger than expected.
We loved the relaxed vibe on the balcony, especially on a nice day, and will definitely be back with the gang in tow.
Favourite items on the menu? Um... the sauteed salmon taco, the fried chicken, and the ceviche. Oh, and the margaritas.
