silly and overdone that plagues cosmopolitan capital cities the world over. Walking in to Cha Chi?s you are immediately enveloped by the loud, festive ambience ? brightly hued woven ponchos spread over the walls and screens with more than a dozen mixed sombreros ? embellished and otherwise thrown in for good measure with heavy handed gay abandon. Ironically, the aesthetically carefree and vivacious atmosphere is hard at work while the lack of music ? vibrant Latina beats or otherwise is sorely missed ? a dimension that would definitely enhance the d?cor and illuminate that sense of it being a ?Cantina?. All set for a red hot night, I was on the edge of my seat excitedly anticipating my Margarita. Turns out we were advised not to bother ordering by the pitcher and instead opt by the glass for more value for money (the glass sizes play a big part here I believe) ? Oh Australia! The strawberry Margarita is halfway decent as is the lime at $AU 7 each. Having arrived at 8.30 and with last orders for the night being processed (the place shuts hop by 9.30 which means a night with the amigos must commence early and wrap up soon, or be shifted elsewhere relatively pre-maturely) we opted for a four way platter (complete scam since this sufficed for two, or I just have an incredibly mean appetite ?not a question, but perhaps it is a fact).

This place is fantastic and the food is always great! I have dined here numerous times and the quality of the food is always the same. The staff are also always great, really friendly, helpful and make you feel very welcome. Mondays and Tuesdays are all you can eat tacos, nachos and burritos for $15.90. I suggest sharing the fajitas with a friend - they are delicious! The decor is also great - very mexican!

Without a doubt the worst place I've ever eaten. I really would have rathered go to mcdonalds. I have never been so shocked before.....who runs this place? They have no idea how a resturant should run. I have never had such rude, unattentive waiters in my life. I waited half an hour for my margareita order before I went up again and asked where it was. They brang it out five minutes after that. Then to top it off, the nachos were appaling. I can make better nachos than that in my sleep. A big dissapointment - I wouldn't reccomend to anyone.

Just buy a old el paso kit from the supermarket, it will be of higher quality!

I have never felt so embaressed for a eatery in all my life. I was like standing in line at the yatala labour prison for your serving of grool except I am sure they are eating better food than this slop bucket fair.
