This place so cute!!! Such a great place to celebrate a birthday or special occasion!!

Now the food:
OH MA GAWD it was soo good, portions look small compared to your everyday Texas portions but it’s filling! Every single person at our table cleaned off their plates . From salmon, toenchiladas, baked chicken, lamb chops, the octopus, everyone loved their dishes. Every detail of the dishes are thought of, it’s plated nicely & each piece serves a purpose in making each bite delicious .

Drinks; 10/10
Two & I was good !

Can’t wait to go their again !

Came for Mother’s Day and were seated promptly at a nice table. Chips were stale and thick. Waiter said it must have been a bad batch. Pancakes overcooked and dry. I asked for syrup to make them more moist, but didn’t help. Server offered to take them off the bill at least. Tacos were very good and fresh. Bathrooms were clean and decor and ambiance was nice.

Only 2 tops left were not acceptable - one near service entrance and one to close to 2 couples - are at the bar
Bar menu must have been limited- not many choices. Bartender was great - attentive, friendly, on the spot.
Guess that’s what you get for last minute on a Saturday in Dallas.

My wife and I had dinner at Tulum for our 6th anniversary and had a memorable experience. We had cocktails (margarita, 357-their version of an old fashioned, ranch water), an appetizer (elote), the pork dish, a flat steak, and Mexican chocolate cake for dessert, all good and drinks were well crafted and delicious. The service was incredibly good, attentive and congratulatory of our special occasion, even providing us a complimentary glass of champagne. We will be going back soon.

The experience @ Tulum is always amazing when I bring friends from out of town! It’s always my go-to place for our catch up sessions. The Ambiance is perfect & the food is amazing! Our server Tony was helpful & attentive, couldn’t have asked for better service. I was taken by surprise and learned the Chef Jose Meza was out and actually helping with guest and inquiring on food quality, one more reason I’ll be coming back for sure 😉

I took my GF here on Saturday and the octopus was burned, and the shrimp cocktail platter was too sweet. The drinks were rough to a swallow as they were either too salty/oily or too harsh. The customer service was extremely good and so was the ambiance.

La comida espectacular!!!! Excelente valor por la calidad recibida. Llevábamos varios días en dallas y ya estaba yo cansada de comer comida americana. Me sorprendió gratamente encontrar Yam buena comida mexicana nouvelle cuisine en Estados Unidos. Las instalaciones muy muy lindas, la comía deliciosa y la presentación de los platos muy buena. Súper recomendable! El ceviche sede pescado wow! La causa peruana deliciosa. No soy de comer pescado pero quería cambiarle y probé la pesca del día e s o e c t a c u l a r, con pipián verde. El postre de chocolate wow! TODO!

Our waiter was very attentive. The drinks were okay.... enjoyed the ambiance, appetizers were very good.
My friend’s seafood salad was not very tasty, but the roasted chicken was pretty good.
All in all it was a delightful experience.

The food and drinks were food but the music was way too loud I couldn’t even hold a conversation with the person sitting next to me nor could I hear the waiter when he spoke. I thought it was me but my table of 5 also felt that way. Needless to say I couldn’t wait to get out of there and actually have a conversation with my friends. Made my anxiety level go through the roof and gave me a sore throat from having to yell across the table.

Hi, Thank you very much for your last visit with us and for enjoyed our food and drinks, I want to apologize about the volume, our goal at Tulum is to make people feel out of Dallas delivering an unique experience, we are inspired in Tulum Mexico and weekends for us are a little busier than a regular day during the week. If you would like to enjoy better I would recommend to come in a Wednesday or a Sunday night. Next time you come let me know and I'll take care of you. Chef Jose Meza
