A place that decorated uniquely; part of the wall coated in orangey and plastered with number plates. And best of all, it is a great place for a little gathering and get-together with friends and family.

It was a farewell cum reunion cum get-together with a gang of long lost friend a.k.a primary schoolmates. We decided to come here for its pleasant atmosphere and the great portions for sharing.

During the get-together, something must not be missed - the "Las Carretas" Frozen Margarita which is great for sharing. (1/2 pitcher at a price of RM 58.50). This is the perfect 'Tiki-La-La Drink Using Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila only at Las Carretas'!
