    You only need to order the steak tacos and nothing else. They are amazing. Not true Mexican, but a high-end version. Notables also include the fried oyster and passion fruit margarita w/ 1/2 sugar

    Taqueria is a GREAT Mexican food not Cali-Mex or Tex-Mex food just real authentic high-end Mexican comfort food. Both the Margaritas and Daiquiris stand out. Notable service in a cool ambience

    I dare to say that is the best Mexican food I've tried in London so far, obviously is not like in Mexico, but flavours are close enough and has a really good variety to choose from.

    Most authentic taqueria in London and luckily a local one. No mexican food with 'English twist' misleads just non bullshit tacos.Love the atmosphere, the margaritas & dulce de leche churros. Just go!

    Carnitas, Al Pastor are great in both tacos and quesadillas! Prawn tacos are my favorite! Best to match with Sierra Nevada Pale Ale 🍻🌮🌮🌮🌮

    Wasn't impressed with Michelada or soft drinks but food was great, especially vampiro tostadas and carne asada tacos. Pork pibil on a par with Wahaca, perhaps better. Not cheap, still worth a go.

    Small portions, but great Tacos and Ceviche. Don't miss out on the Basil Margerita with Chili-infused Tequila.
  • Mihnea M.
    Their fish tacos are amazing, their steak tacos are the next best thing. Simple place, great food.

    The food is amazing but unfortunately the service is pretty amateur. Since re opening (it's got a lot more expensive to pay for the refurb) they've lost most or all of the old waiters :(

    Enjoyed the best Quesadillas and Tacos here. Definitely have a Margarita too, best one's I've tasted. Especially cool on Mexican Independence Day! :)

    Don't get any sides - they come after the mains and you end up eating a bowl of spinach on its own... Great food otherwise! Definitely recommend

    Definitely one of the best places in London for proper Mexican food. The michelada it's a must!

    As said, best Mexican in London. Do try the hot sauce and finish off with churros con cajete. Only downside: it's packed with noisy US chicas.

    The place is noisy,waiters are simpatic but service is slow. Food is good,I recommend Botana(its kind of nachos),queso fresco is really good. Carne asada and pollo borracho tacos was very tasteful.

    Taquería serves traditional, regional fillings on soft corn tortillas made daily by a big tortilla machine.

    As a Mexican living in London I think this is as close as it can get to real Mexican food outside of Mexico. Very nice Gringa!

    The classic margarita is the best... Although working your way down the menu - just to be sure - is not unfeasible.

    Pretty average mexican food. Some dishes such as chicken tostada were tasty but others like the carnitas taco were a disappointment . Overall pretty overpriced for the size of the portions.

    Food is good. Very busy. Wish a more polite hostess. She spilled food on one of us and didn't even say sorry. Price just ok.

    Really good Mexican. Pollock ceviche and slow cooked pork carnitas are delicious. I don't know a better Mexican on London.

    Unfortunately we didn't have a great experience: a lot of items were not available, the caldo tlalpeño was average at best (chicken meat was dodgy) and the Tacos were half cold. Shame.
