Really happy to be in a patio during covid. Sample space between tables. Food was good and fast although a tad expensive for the size of food. Staff was very accommodating. Roof patio was more shaded than other tables that we saw. It was hot so we were happy to eat comfortably.

Paid 7 dollars for the tiniest beef taco I've ever seen. I got 3 tacos for 20 dollars and wasn't even close to being satisfied. Ridiculously overpriced.

Cody was awesome and Dakota made phenomenal cocktails. 10/10 would recommend the patio. It’s very intimate and I felt protected and taken care of the entire time. Thanks everyone !

Group that had come once we ordered were very noisy and lit a bowl on fire couldn't even hear my boyfriend infront of me and for the price of tacos way over priced for tiny tacos service was great though. First time and last will not return.

Very streamlined, well planned strategy to maintain social distancing and provide a pleasant experience.
Everything was touchless, servers wore face shields, without masks. And the food was amazing, as expected!

Excellent food. Had to buy bottled water which seemed strange since other beverages came in normal glasses. Use of plastic cutlery also seemed strange as we were using normal glasses and plates.

Great to have our favourite patio open again! The staff did a great job taking our orders and bring out our food and drinks. Shrimp Ceviche tacos were the highlight but it was all so good! Can’t wait until our next visit.

It felt good just to be back on a patio sipping a margarita, but Chula has put some thought into how we can enjoy a patio again, but do it safely.

Great service. Tacos a bit runny but tasty. Regular churros are better than the Sundae

I found the ceviche tasty but overly 'hot' as in spicy and general tao chicken on the bland side but enjoyed the haddock tacos!! My friend did find the green chilies dish so spicy she couldn't taste the flavours only the heat! Maybe different chef than usual.


I generally enjoy sitting out on patio in summer and enjoying a cervaca and nibblies to share with friends.

Great service and delish food. Amazing appetizers - the corn, zucchini fritters & pork belly were all great. Best margaritas we’ve had in a while. Some of the tacos were a little on the skimpy side... but not enough to keep us away. We’ll be back.

The service and food were good (we tried five different types of tacos as well as a couple of different margaritas), but it was so loud that my husband and I could not speak at all. As well, despite my reservation of a standard table, we were seated at a high table, which proved to be quite uncomfortable after an hour. We were relieved when we were able to leave!

Was a bit on the busy side, so our server wasn’t able to give us their full attention (ie: took a while to take our order and fill our drinks) but other than that great as usual.

Chula never disappoints when it comes to tacos. The shrimp ones are my favorite, followed by fish and zucchini. The ambiance is awesome and the service is great. Can't wait to enjoy their 2 level patios in the summer.

Great service, price, and food. We went for Valentines and they had our table ready and explained the promo of the night. The taste of the food was amazing and margaritas were fantastic. I am coming back for sure.

Our server was so friendly and efficient. She made it a lovely experience. Excellent margaritas, so many tacos (the crispy zucchini ones are a triumph) and then churros with ice-cream. Splendid.

This was our first visit to Chula and we will DEFINITELY be back! Firstly, the Margaritas were magnificent. My friends had the classic and I had a passion fruit Margarita. The food was even better. We tried the pork belly, zucchini fritters, street corn and a variety of tacos. For dessert we had the churro sundae and the chocolate tres leche pudding. Everything was spectacular and our server was unbelievably sweet and accommodating. Can’t wait to comeback.
