My girlfriend and I recently went to El Cactus for some Nachos and Fajitas. There were many vegetarian options for us and they served us some great meals. Afterwards, we had a nice beer and cocktail which was very pleasing.

Food is great, authentic Mexican styled. Cost was slightly high comparatively to Malaysian standards, but the atmosphere was definitely worth it. Service however, was sub-par. They hired young Malaysian boys as waiters, who couldn't speak much English and we had multiple communication breakdowns. They were...More
