    Get the Aguachile De Cameron(ceviche) to start, and Al Pastór, Pastor de Pescado for tacos!! Also recommend the tequila cocktail with grapefruit juice as base.

    Authentic and tasty Mexican food just off Borough Market. They serve micheladas too! Great friendly service and good value for money.

    Everything is 👌🏼 dead on and authentic. Note: two person pricing is per person I.e. Carnitas is £7 but minimum 2 people, so £14 for the dish

    Good, solid tacos. Stick with the classics and you'll be fine. Don't get into the fancier stuff. Great place. Need better beers though.

    Best Mexican food I tasted in London .. come early and have a drink around as you might have to wait in a long Q if not reserved .

    Yikes most reviews claim this is authentic Mexican. Al pastor has 1/8 of the flavor of what you’d find in California/Mexico. Passes as edible. Plus is freshly made tortillas which they are so proud of

    Popular and seating tight. Great food. Short rib particularly good. El diablo salsa presents as a paste with nothing to go with it.

    Go for the short rib. Perfection, especially with the caramelised pineapple salsa

    Skip the guac and go straight for the carnitias they're great. Not a true Mexican but definitely one of London's best.

    Quite new so expect some teething issues. Bit disorganised, waiter didn't call out discontinued menu items until we ordered them. Guacamole portion is tiny for the price

    The food was delicious, but you get very little for your money. The tacos were the same size or smaller than Wahaca tacos, but were £3+ more expensive and you only got 2 instead of 3!

    Decent tacos, but the price is really high. Ended up eating almost nothing and having one drink and paying £50
