                                          Unfortunately food did not meet our expectations - flat, tasteless, not something you would expect from a self-pronounced Mexican restaurant. They need to revisit their cooking if they are to last in the emerging competitive food scene

We strive to use authentic Mexican techniques throughout our menu. We will be revisiting and refining our menu in the next coming weeks.

                                          Not good food. Tacos were floppy, fillings lacked seasoning/flavour and every taco was filled with lettuce that had seen its best days. Corn was two tiny ends. A bland and disappointing meal.

                                          The food was tasty but tiny portions for the price so not good value for money. The Margarita was served in a small glass, no bigger than a standard whisky glass. The nachos were extremely crispy, and over cooked.

                                          Purely personal taste but I really didn’t like the tacos, all down to the flour but my other half liked them. The fillings were lovely. What was outstanding was the service. Both were super friendly without being in your face.

                                          Had great service all night and staff were very accommodating of dietary needs. The whole menu is gluten free and anything can be adjusted to make it dairy free which is a godsend! Cocktail menu was super impressive as well, would be a perfect place for a couple drinks and some tacos!

                                          Staff were lovely but couldn't help feeling a little let down by the hype! It was quite expensive for what you get and the tacos lacked a bit of flavour. Also the tacos just seemed to fall apart as the bottom of the tortilla got soggy so you had to eat them with a knife and fork. It was good just not totally worth the money, would go again if they reconsidered their pricing. Drinks and the guac were probably the best thing.

                                          Hipster staff vibe - the one where you’re not welcome if you’re not a hipster. Food was decent quality, cooked well etc but so bland and unflavoured. Music was far too loud. Overpriced for how small the portions were. Won’t be back.

                                          Dined for lunch with family (6 of us) with a kid and a pram. Staff were lovely, attentive and very knowledgeable. Food tasted fresh and unique. People enjoyed the apricot chicken wings the most. Recommend 2-3 plates.

                                          Was quite surprised with the tacos we got… I eat them quite frequently aswell so I know what I good taco is. There was hardly much fish in my Baja taco and the chicken taco wasn’t great… strange flavours. Was just quite disappointed unfortunately. Lovely place inside, love the decor, staff lovely but the food wasn’t up to scratch.

                                          I took a chance on La Choza considering how positive the last couple reviews were and I was not disappointed. The food was UNREAL, between the 4 of us we ordered the majority of the menu and I honestly can’t tell you which was my favourite. It has a fantastic cantina feel inside with a lively atmosphere. I did give the service 4 stars only because some of the dishes were missed but it was quickly rectified so can’t complain too much. 10/10 for the food but I would say 5/10 for the Margaritas. I had a classic which was awful, could only taste water and salt from the rim. However, the rest of the party got one of the specials and they LOVED them. All in all, fantastic experience.

                                          Service was pretty poor, no chat through menu - how many tacos per order, what the specials were or general chat. (2 tacos per dish fyi). Food was pretty good but portions really small for the price so seemed overly expensive for what you get. Margaritas were really good. Ambience was also pretty disappointing, cool looking places but really quiet atmosphere. Tables around us were also unimpressed by the service which fed into a sort of uncomfortable experience.

                                          Loved every dish, but the Fish tacos were a particular highlight. When we booked the average rating was 3.5, which does NOT reflect how good it was. Maybe other folk were disappointed at the lack of stereotypical Mexican options like fajitas or burritos, but these guys focus on Tacos and street food - both of which were incredible! Authentic without being corny, overall top notch!

                                          Absolutely outstanding! Everything about our visit was amazing. The service was excellent as well. We ordered the chicken tacos and mixed mushroom tacos both of which were delicious. So fresh, especially the tortillas which you can tell are house made. The guacamole and plantain chips were just delicious as well as the chicken quesadillas. The hot sauce on the table was amazing and I’m hoping it’s available to buy soon! The margaritas were outstanding and I’m quite particular about how I like them! This was hands down the best restaurant I’ve been to and I can’t wait to come back.

                                          Completely lovely staff, super cool interiors and really brilliant drinks! The food was nice, I think there were a few teething problems as it was a busy Saturday night not long after opening but I’m looking forward to going back again to try a few more dishes, maybe on a quieter evening.

                                          Great service and cocktails. Unfortunately the food was pretty bland and cold.

                                          Interior is really nice and good branding. Was hoping it would be a new frequent go-to but it was a bit disappointing. Service was slow, didn’t get asked to order drinks for about 20 minutes - mouth was actually dry by that point, and the people who arrived after us were served before us. Ordered a spicy margarita which wasn’t at all spicy. Ordered habanero chicken wings - tasty but again, barely any heat. Tacos looked good on arrival but lacked flavour. Everything a bit flat. Will give it another go in a few months to see if it’s improved though.

                                          For opening weekend /payday weekend they were understaffed. The staff were super nice but it was clear they were flustered and understaffed. The food was expensive for not incredible tasting food, tacos often falling apart before even a bite. Cocktails were really very good but overall, I would recommend other Mexican places in the city over this one. This is also my second time going! I went before they closed and was disappointed then too, I thought maybe they would have worked out some of the quirks over the closure - sadly this hasn’t been the case.

                                          Hi Laura, Firstly, I'd like to apologise for you feeling that the staff were flustered. Truth is, they probably were. We had only been open for one day when you visited and while we really hoped we would be busy, we didn't anticipate how busy we'd be. Your comments about our food, we have really taken on board. Our Chefs have been briefed and we have been working on making everything to the best of our ability. We do hope you'll give us another chance in the future. La Choza

                                          Unfortunately we were unable to eat as after ordering the wait for food was 2 hours and we had tickets for a gig. The staff were lovely but obviously some teething problems, hopefully they can sort it out soon.

                                          Really looking forward to authentic Mexican street food however, found the tacos, all types, quite dry. They needed the guacamole or perhaps more dressing. Beef ribs were very chewy and although coated in quite a hot spicy coating, lacked depth of flavour. We all enjoyed the sweetcorn, the guacamole dish and the mushrooms in the mushroom taco. Overall not quite what we were expecting. The dishes were bought out as they were prepared, I guess in order to promote sharing, this meant that some of our party's dishes followed quite a bit later than others. Found the restaurant very loud and our particular table position was so draughty, by the fire door/cloackroom, that we sat with our coats on
