Owners description

A deadly Mexican concept place, alongside and a complement of the Hell's Kitchen folks. Outside and in, its a winner on the food and drinks side for the groups of tattooed hipsters with intelligent food taste.

  • VERY NOISY! SERVICE IS SHOCKING! The staff talk about their "last free meal", around the bar while on duty. THE FOOD: - Half the chicken meals on the menu: not available. - Jalapeno poppers must have been fried in cold oil. It was NOT AT ALL crispy, pale in color, chewy, soggy and pretty much still raw batter on the inside. - Taco shells were soggy, the chicken strips was SO dry, it must have been fried 3 times. - Ceviche salad: THIS IS NOT FRESH FISH as indicated on the menu. (I have plenty ceviche meals) and you can see this just looking at it. My salad was placed in a silver foil container in the same brown takeout bag as the hot food order. The salad was warm and was totally nausiating just looking at it! NOT A PLACE TO EAT!!! Take your chances with one of the many other eateries down the lane.

  • Muerte means death in Spanish hence skull and grungy look theme of restaurant.Had a crumbed chicken taco which was nice ,not too dry and came with guacamole. Paired taco with fire in the mouth 3 amigos sauce which was tasty and definitely for fire seeking chilli addicts

  • This is by far our favorite Mexican eatery. We love their poppers and soft-shell tacos. Their cocktails are unique and really delicious too...here's the but...the service is almost non-existent. You will wait...for a long time...for everything. This combined with the slightly dark and somewhat unclean look (it is modelled on the Saint of Death after all) are the drawbacks. Knowing this - we still come because the food is just that good...pity the menu was not a bit more diverse, but we love it nonetheless.
