Really casual and quick service. The food was delicious and tasted fresh and was brilliant value for money. We had the specials, pork belly, deep fried avocado and catfish tacos - the pork in particular was great!

Grab a bottle of wine or some beer and head over to east coast taco for a causal and inexpensive date. The food is awesome and the atmosphere is comfortable. Everything we have tried on the menu is good.
