This was my first time here and I really enjoyed it. The food comes in large portions which is good, I wouldn't say it was the best Mexican I've had but never the less still pretty good. I'm a student so I had a 25% discount card which the server had no problem with, also he was very friendly and didn't forget about us even though it was slightly busy.
Huge portions, plenty of choice and a lively atmosphere greet you. Service however is slow and slapdash, so don't head here if you're in a hurry. Typical Cajun seasoning and traditional Tex Mex flavours tempt the palette with fajitas, enchiladas and vegetarian options all available. There is also a children's menu. Colourful cocktails and calorific desserts also entice, so this is not the place to visit if you're trying to stick to a diet.
Although portions are large the bill is expensive, when you consider the level of service and variety of food offered. If you're planning a one-off treat however, Chiquito's vibrant setting is just the place for your fiesta.
I love Mexican food so I did enjoy my time in Chiquitos. I found the food to be very tasty and the portions were very filling! The service was good but it wasn't the fastest in the world so don't go here if you are in a rush. I would say the food was good value for money and better than Frankie & Benny's which is located next door. All in all, I would say this is a good place to go while in Purley Way whether you are visiting the cinema, bowling alley or just there to do some shopping.
Chiquito's is a restaurant which didn't live up to my expectation's in terms of quality which wasn't great however the service was brilliant which I loved and increased this review from a 1 star to a 2 star. Recommended if you wanna go to a place where you can chill with mates but don't eat here!
always go here before the cinema-if you say you only have hour then they serve quick as they can. traditional american style restaurant-great jazz playing. mammas dishes on menue-italian and american style. the pastas and pizzas are fab-burgers brilliant and then special dishes. very nice atmosphere-can be pricey if go for 3 courses and side dishes and drinks so set a budget when you go and you should be ok. always a pleasure to visit. good atmosphere at bar if just want drink
