We so enjoyed the freshness and flavors! Even the Vegan tacos were outstanding and the soft corn tortillas second to none, We have been visiting restaurants in Johannesburg all week and this was by far our favorite meal!

So, I've just returned from Baha Taco, one of my two favourite Mexican places, a casual, informal, eclectic environment, that just makes it such a cool place to hang and the food, had always been truly awesome. Then tonight, started with Beef Chilli Nachos, beef...was soo dry, would made a camel thirsty, then after a long wait, my Soft Taco Steak arrived, having waited for soo long, expected something fresh, tasty, sadly, the food was tasteless and ice cold, close to frozen, an inuit family would have struggled to eat it. I'll give Baha Taco another chance, but they need to get their act together.More

Great food and fun evening out. The owner Dave and his wife prepare the food and together with a great team around them, ensure an around wonderful experience. Well worth a visit or two if you are looking for something different that is very good.

Fabulous late lunch at Baba Taco. We shared the Californian Nachos (perfect size for sharing), and each had our own taco portion (ostrich and prawns). Absolutely delicious, with THE perfect margaritas and amazing mezcal. Best churros we have ever has, great service and safe parking....Will be back!More

We were surprised to find this little gem and were looking for something different. We definitely found a place I'll bring my family and friends to. The food was delicious and authentic with spurts of favour.

We were very impressed by this little restaurant where the food is all made there (proper tacos - not premade!). My wife had wanted burritos but those are only available on Friday, so she had minced steak on soft taco with refried beans and gaucamole...added. I had natchos with beef and chili beans. The only gripe would be not enough sour cream, which is a staple in mexican cooking. We were impressed by the modest price - particularly since my wife's tacos had extras added.More

The owners don't like to be challenged about their food. When questioned about the meagre size of my food portion we were abused and abruptly told it's because of they haven't increased their prices. Well, they haven't reduced them either I retorted. They are, rude,...abrasive, arrogant and non'customer centric shopowners who know how to make food but not look after their regular clientele. We also suggest you double check your bill as they seem to frequently charge for the same item twice. We won't be coming back!More

My husband and I had been looking for a new Mexican restaurant and decided to pop into Baha Taco early one Friday evening. We had our dog with us and had zero issues choosing to sit outside in the courtyard. Absolutely gorgeous. The mohitos were...refreshing - our first since COVID! Creative dining options with loads of veggie choices - the fish taco was delish! The churros were honestly the best we've had. We had brilliant service - friendly, warm and efficient. The food and drinks were delicious and for the covid cautious, we felt very safe and protocols were clearly adhered to. A firm family favourite. All 3 of us (including our staffy!) can't wait to return!More

My friend invited me out for dinner to this new Mexican place, as she knows that I love mexican.Well .. The starter taco, was good, but the potato..fried pieces of potato, not well cooked, nothing special. The main course.. well first that all 3 mains...didnt arrive on time, the paper under the taco - well when the taco gets soggy the paper gets soggy and then you eating paper with your food....and meat was tough.. Then ordered pudding, and waitress open admits that she is not drunk today, swears about staff in kitchen.. and the delays...pudding takes forever to arrive... Bathrooms are awful, not cleaned, lights not working .... so overall very disappointed... I can go on but wont. And a big problem with restaurants in general.. that they have no handicapped bathroom...or accessibility.More

Make no mistake: this is a pretty relaxed laid back place. However, we love it: easily, the best Mexican/Tex-Mex food in Joburg! The spicy bbq wings are especially incredible. I can’t wait to go back post the COVID-19 lockdown.

Great food, great ambience, reasonably priced but the waittress got the order and the bill wrong and we were the only people in the restaurant for an early Sunday lunch. Waittres needs some more training I guess.

So we visited on a Friday evening & it seemed quite busy. Only one identifiable waitress who was frantically trying to deliver orders to tables & clear up. Food orders are made at the counter behind which is located the kitchen area, with two ladies...doing all the work. There is a separate bar serving craft beers & cider, along with mainstream drinks & cocktails. There seemed to be a general problem at the tills; I was overcharged over double - which was rectified - & someone else had been overcharged at the bar. Food wise, it’s all prepared in front of you, fresh ingredients; my Classic nachos were great, but my wife wasn’t overly impressed with her taco. It seemed a popular place with locals which is always a good sign.More

First enjoyed Baja Taco at Fijnwyn. A friend and I then made plans to visit their restaurant. We were in the neighborhood the night before, but while we passed it, my friend noticed it was Tamale Thursday, so she got one. She loved it! We...returned the next day for lunch, and luckily there was a tamale left from the day before. We also ordered tacos, starters, and margaritas. Everything was fantastic. We have made plans to visit again with more friends.More
