Rowan was such a sweetheart, he sat us down earlier from the time we had set.. overall everything was very nice.. food was okay and spicy..
Great food, drinks and atmosphere
Great date on Valentine's day
Very friendly and welcoming even though we arrived a bit late and one of our party was not feeling well.
Cool place with a fun ambiance. Great food
This was my first time to Mas Malo. I love their Silverlake location Malo. I've been there multiple times over the years and I am very delighted with their meals every time. I was NOT impressed with this new spot. The food was very average and expensive for what you get. It cost me $16 for a two taco combo for rice and beans that I didn't even want. The waitress did not explain that there would be an $4 up charge for rice and beans.
Also, we were unaware that were were going to get free chips and salsa so paid $8 for salsa and chips that ended up being too spicy for the other two at the table. Nor is it indicated on the menu that it would be spicy.
I also had a HUGE issue with the bathrooms. It looked like it hadn't been cleaned since they had opened in the morning if that and their hand dryer was DISGUSTING. It looks like it may have never been cleaned. My ex-boyfriend has worked in many kitchens over the years and he told me that if there's a clean bathroom there's a clean kitchen and if you see a dirty kitchen it may be an indication that their kitchen is not up to par.
I've attached photos. Judge for yourself. I will never be back to this location until they get it together.
The food and service were great!!
We attended Mas Malo for my girlfriend’s 32nd birthday and had a great time. I ordered a couple spicy margaritas and the skirt steak (Medium Rare); my steak was phenomenal. I’ve told everyone about it. I was impressed and surprised.
In addition, service was decent, I’ve worked for restaurants in the past so I’m pretty patient, but one round of 5/6 drinks took 22 minutes. Nonetheless, we all had a great time. Sitting upstairs was really cool too. Thank you for having us.
Tasty food. Good drinks. Expeditious service but the wait staff had little character and left us "not wanting more". We won't be back.
The food was decent - the service was not. We were here a couple years ago and had a similar experience. We thought after a few years it would eventually improve. Maybe we just have bad luck. Our server seemed bothered to wait on us. Very mechanical responses and no eye contact. The restaurant is in a busy area of town so I do not think they feel they need to put in much effort because business comes easily. We had a better meal and service at Rosa Mexicano (a chain) a few blocks away.
