Attended “Taco night” at Juanitas Kitchen and had a great experience! Great value for money as the food was plentiful, but most importantly it was delicious. My partner who says he doesn’t enjoy mexian food, thoroughly enjoyed it and said he’d even love to come back. Restuarant is very homey and cozy, a breath of fresh air as I am used to extremely busy and overcrowded restuarants. Highly recommend!

Juanita's Kitchen is an island of delicious food in what is otherwise a fairly uninspiring intersection of Bell St and High St Preston. Recommend the taco night first Friday of every month. You can also buy her sauces in jars to use in your own cooking at home!

I went to taco night. This is the first Friday of each month and costs $15/ head. We really enjoyed the meal. There was a good range of sides, Juanita's sauces and a good portion of protein. The dessert was lovely. It's great that they have vegan options too. Worth a visit!

Food was fantastic. Service ok but lacklustre. We had a lovely time and will definitely be back. The tortillas were best we have had i reckon

Great tacos with delicious salsas and salads - the chorizo and pulled pork were definitely the highlights! The vegan salted caramel cake also a delight.
