Service was fair at best. Staff seemed rushed and undertrained. Food was good, not great.

We cancelled our reservation because we got stuck in traffic. Now why would they close down 3 lanes in the 404 on a Saturday? Only in Canada....
We figured we would just go and do takeout. When we arrived an hour after we asked if there were any table available and although they were fully booked they were able to arrange another table. Thank you to Sofia! Top notch to our servers for great customer service!
Food wise we ordered the Dos Amigos. Pico de gallo was good but the guac was a bit too salty. Chips were ok.
Zucchini fritters could use a little crunch but tasty. Chicken tacos were a bit dry, but the pork tacos were good. We had high hopes for the churros sundae but it was too doughy for us. We would go back to try other items on the menu. Great patio and atmosphere.

Food needed more spice. Nachos were a bit burnt.

Server was excellent and customer service was excellent. They just need to work on making the food more authentic in taste.

Absolutely loved the decor of the place and the music.
We had a reservation so we didn’t have to wait, the outdoor patio had a beach shack like get up which totally added to the vibe.
We tried the calamari, I personally thought the portions were less but it was really well cooked and tasted pretty darn good.
Over all a good late night hangout.

Our group of 5 had a late dinner at Chula. We enjoyed the food immensely and the service was great. There were no tables available on the patio at the time of our reservation, though we are committed to going back and checking it out!

Food provided at the restaurant was excellent. Food ordered to go was overpriced considering it was delivered was not as described in menu (Ordered a Churro Sundae,; received two Churros -- no caramel sauce nor ice cream -- so not the item as described). Should have been advised that the item could not be provided as takeout or provided a lesser price for the takeout item.

I went there last Friday after another restaurant so i was unable to get food since we were already full but did try a couple of drinks. El dorado/tesoro can’t remember both okay but the mango habanero was amazing! I was left with the craving or trying their churro sundae so I went back Monday. I was able to try the food all good, the steak was the only thing that was not something we enjoyed but the rest was amazing. Got a couple of more drinks all good! For the price point better than anejo as well.

Horrible management. Horrible food. So pricey for nothing. If McDonald’s had tacos i rather go there. $20 for 3 2 bite tacos. It’s ridiculous

Good Mexican meal, efficient service. Table on the second floor outside deck - ambience will improve when pandemic barriers between tables come down. A bit like eating in an outdoor office cubicle right now.

Nice selection of drinks. Very tasty tacos. Might seem a bit strange, but the zucchini taco is really excellent, followed by the fish, then the meat tacos. Good COVID set up. Download menus, and spaced out patio seating.

With reservations at 11pm and the kitchen closing at 11:30pm the night felt rushed. We had to order dessert latest 11:29 and it came out while our food was still hot. Other than that it was a great experience with great ambiance.

So happy I discovered this place!
Super cute patio. Ambience was very eclectic and fun.
Food was great with the exception of the ceviche - wasn't my favourite.
Last but not least, the service. It was awesome. Our waiter made some great menu recommendations and was so sweet. We asked him to take our picture and he ended up doing a whole photo shoot for us in the restaurant:) Highly recommend!

This place is full of Mexican theme…..the decor and music. The waitress is very friendly, recommended us to try Zucchini Taco. We ended up didn’t take it, but she offered us one with compliments. It tasted super good. The Nacho cheese was yummy.

ive been to Chula three times now and the food was excellent before. This time was different, maybe new chef or something, but it was not the same. Quality of food was not as good. Food came to our table and you can tell that anything that was fried was either burnt or oily. I believe it was the oil, it looks like the oil was not clean and it had a smell.
