4.5 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised. Good service & portions bigger than I expected. Had the mole enchiladas-excellent & hubby had taco sampler also good. Sat at the bar & had a great view of the kitchen. Yummy mojitos-not too sweet. We would (& did) make a special trip to come here & will be back. kittykris

4.5 out of 5 stars Updating my initial review, service is still excellent, the layout and decor are attractive, and hats off for locating in the heart of the gritty 16th to 24th St. Mission corridor, not on Valencia St. I particularly like their simple dishes, handmade corn tortillas served warm, fresh guacamole, black beans and rice. I'm glad they're in what otherwise is the Mission's dead animal restaurant row. Vegan Living

3.5 out of 5 stars Mixed experience here. Our two favorite dishes were the cauliflower gratin and the Mexican wedding cookies. Entrees were ok, but under seasoned and not super flavorful. Portions are generous, food arrived really hot and service was friendly. I might go back if in the neighborhood but I wouldn't say it's worth a special trip, especially with so many other great vegan options in the area. Soyboy

4.5 out of 5 stars Brussel sprouts with vegan parmesan-style cheese: DELICIOSO! Yum! Chile Relleno for my entree, a big roasted chile filled with veggies and nut cheese; not batter-fried; it was OK. The rice, beans, tortillas, and other fixin's that came with it were good. My boyfriend ordered the Mole enchilada which was fantastic (I tried some!). We love the upscale ambiance and lively Mission St location. calicokitten

4 out of 5 stars Just give me the plain guacamole, refried beans and blue corn tortilla. That will make me happy. I don't need all that other fancy stuff. My friend said they did a great job on the guacamole. The tamale is made with a corn that is different/special. My favorite drink is the ginger beer. The decor is more fancy then I expected. All the staff members are super nice. sunny
