    interesting menu and nice size serves. it was busy and service was difficult to attract at certain times to order drinks or top up water. still or sparkling water offered on seating from refillable water bottle. On settlement of account, a charge of $4 per person was applied for sparkling water. We had order drinks per person (cocktail and beer).

    What a great find. Menu is simple and easy and the food was delicious. Combinations of flavours and textures were phenomenal. Can’t wait to go back.

    Great fresh Mexican... good to see a fresh New Mexican restaurant serving real and traditional food rather than the stodgy usual suspects we have around Brisbane.

    Great food in a really nice little space. It was a bit noisy but not to the point that we couldn’t have a conversation across the table. Only issue really was how hot it was! Could definitely do with some improved air conditioning! Cauliflower and mushroom tacos were amazing!

    Baja has the potential to be a great upscale Mexican find in the Valley, but they’re not quite there. The restaurant has been beautifully appointed but was uncomfortably warm and loud when full. We had the guacamole (nice, but as you’d expect), the ceviche (fresh and light, a little too heavy on the fried shallot garnish) and the pork tacos (disappointing for the price; the flavour was excellent but they were swimming in oil). The bill came to $90 for two of us. Expensive for the experience.

    The restaurant had a lovely vibe. We were greeted nicely and they were very accommodating even though we were quite late for our booking. The food was really tasty but a little pricey. The restaurant filled quickly and was quite noisy however we had a good time and it is certainly worth a visit.

    Chicken wings were delicious but pretty pricey for the serve. Tostadas were tasty and full of flavour. Tried the pork, beef and fish tacos. The pork tacos were nice but had too much liquid dripping everywhere. The beef tacos were the best in flavour and taste. That beef filling would be very nice in a nacho type dish. Only real problem we struggled with was everything was pretty spicy which made it difficult for the younger kids.

    Overall great restaurant and attentive staff. We enjoyed the entrees of octopus and boneless chicken. Tacos were good. Unfortunately, it was quite loud in the restaurant.

    Great Mexican with a twist. Welcoming staff and nice atmosphere. A bit loud acoustics, so not great for a group of people wanting to conversation over dinner. Other than that, super place.

    Baja is what I’ve been waiting my whole life for Brisbane to have. It is exceptional, uncomplicated, delicious food without any slight hint of pretentiousness and no tex mex in sight. The service is very good, especially from the owner. Reasonable prices for the quality you receive and the ambience is great, exactly what has been missing from that end of the valley and beyond. Well done, and I will be a regular!

    Service was amazing and food was incredible! I think the fish tacos could be a little more tasty, and the ceviche was a more spicy than anticipated but other than that - amazing! Will definitely recommend to a friend.
