    Lupita styles itself 'the first truly authentic Mexican restaurant in London,' but is ultimately a little disappointing. Metro gave it 3 out of 5 Stars. Read more

    Having spent a lot of time in Mexico City, this is easily the best and most genuine Mexican Restaurant in London. 5*! :)

    Try the queso fundido with chorizo. I also love the Costras cheese tacos. Drink either the avocado or kiwi & coriander margarita!

    Unfortunately this is not Mexico... So ingredients are not fully traditional, still the cactus, huitlacoche and pastor are as close as you can get from a real taqueria in Mexico. :)

    Being from Mexico City myself, this place took me back in time when I was younger and went for dinner after a night out with my mates. This is authentic Mexico's City cuisine

    Metro wouldn't know a Mexican if it were serving them tacos in the Zócalo of Mexico City. Very good Mexican restaurant! Try the gringas. Or the quesadillas de tinga. Or the ceviche. Or whatever else.
