Rich flavours and friendly staff make this Mexican a great choice. The nachos and chimichanga I ordered were fresh and crisp. The side of refried beans was a bit on the salty side, but nevertheless pretty good. The typical Mexican atmosphere and friendly service is exactly what you would expect.

This place is very quaint and tiny so lovely setting. Staff friendly but didn't offer drinks throughout meal and weren't sure of meals they were bringing out. The cocktails were nice and food nice too. Overall a nice night but wouldn't rush back.

Thanks for your review . We try our best but sometimes we have to have new staff who sometimes get the various meals confused. They've had some intensive training on the food now so this has been resolved . More

I had been meaning to book a table for a while having been recommended by several friends. Having see a post on Facebook today offering a midweek special I decided it was finally time to make a visit. The restaurant is themed fantastically with Mexican music and a great use of the space! A warm welcome and friendly waitress to... More

We started with nachos and chicken wings them had the chicken rio grande and enchiladas which were fab. We also... More

Been tonight for a lovely meal. As always, it's by far the best Mexican around. Nice lady with a big smile, couldn't do enough. Had the stuffed peppers for starters but shared them as the main's are all way a good portion. Piri Piri chicken enchiladas has a lovely kick and a chicken burrito equally as nice, Both came with...

Description
THE journey from Wheelock Street to Chimichangos may just be a few steps. But as soon as you walk through the door it feels like a voyage of discovery. Shades of orange and subtle lighting lend an ambience to the restaurant. Above the bar is a painted landscape filled with cacti and sombreros playfully hang from walls and chairs. It is the kind of scene you might expect from an inner-city restaurant but this is Middlewich. Chimichangos officially opened at the weekend and the Guardian was invited to give it a try. Owner Jason Tanfield has transformed Kandi’s Steakhouse into a Mexican restaurant. The 36-year-old said he identified a gap in the market as there is only a handful of independent venues in Cheshire where you can enjoy Mexican food. Jason is also drawing on his experience as he used to be the head chef at a restaurant called The Three Amigos in Exeter about 15 years ago. My partner and I were promptly seated and were struck by how attentive and polite the staff were. We were soon sipping Coronas and tucking into some tortilla chips with delicious home-made salsa. To start we had creamy garlic mushrooms in a tortilla shell and jalapenos stuffed with soft cheese which were both perfect. We followed this up with vegetable fajitas and chicken fajitas respectively - and this is where Chimichangos showed its edge over some of its competitors. Firstly you can choose how hot you want your food to be which is sure to be welcomed by both spice addicts and those who like things mild. The portions were also incredibly generous which tends to be unusual for Mexican restaurants. There genuinely was not much to criticise but it would have been nice to have some cheese with the fajitas but im told they do normally and had forgot!! The service was prompt and my partner, a vegetarian, was impressed with the range of suitable dishes. Credit also goes to Jason for making good use of the limited space available. At the time of our visit a large group for a 21st birthday celebration was being accomodated. We were defeated by the time it came to dessert but suffice to say a taste of Mexico is on offer for those with a sweet tooth. The menu even includes a banana wrapped in a tortilla and dusted with cinnamon called a chimichanga. The whole experience was fantastic and comes highly recommended.NOTE:This was a secret food critic from the guardian newspaper just search GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER MIDDLEWICH
