    Guacamole is perfect, make sure they get you the right order I asked for chicken burritos and got something without chicken! The manager did not believe me but then they offered Mojito on the house

    Amazing food! The plantain, sweet potato and pork tacos were delicious.. As was everything else. Leave room for the churros and salted caramel ice cream!

    Nice basic Mexican food, fresh quality ingredients, properly cooked and spicy. Definitely not like the typical shit you get in most "Mexican" restaurants around Europe. Tacos are great!

    Loved this restaurant. The food is delicious, prices are good and staff is friendly. For first time visitors, definitely take the "Introduction" for 2, which are the chef's recommended dishes!

    The pork pibil is on spot. The rice has cilantro, which gives a special flavour. Only downside is the lack of tortillas for bigger plates, which are a must with any mexican food. Mexican approved.

    What's good? Everything! Even for a veggie there is so much choice. Delicious, generous portions and not expensive. Busy even on a weekday evening but well worth a 20min wait. Cocktails great too!

    It used to be really good back in 2010-11 but now the innovative flavors are gone just as the seasonal menus. If you like the sweet-spicy mix, try the plantain tacos, one of the few tasty dishes left.

    Appallingly misspelled Mexican, this place is authentic Mexican and not TexMex, very good and cheap. I recommend the Chorizo quesadilla provided and for about £8. The line is out the door by 6:30 PM.

    Great tasting Mexican food that doesn't cost too much! The Mexican Feast sharing option was plenty of food for two including Churros for dessert, and I enjoyed all of it, would recommend!

    The pablano taco, potato with chickpeas wrap is amazing! the vegetarian options are endless. Have the salted caramel ice-cream and bitter chocolate.

    What can you say about Wahaca? Sublime food. Go for street food and have a bit of this and that. The chicken mole is awesome! Have flan de la casa for dessert. Well worth the wait!

    The frijoles are off the chain. Place is also very affordable, just get two street food portions and a small side; less than £15 if u drink water. Very nice vibe and decor as well!!!

    Sweet potato fries are really delicious, I tried tacos with chicken and tostados with beans also: both tasty and nicely spiced.

    Not necessarily 100% Mexican but they have good food. The MSC Tacos were really, really good. Always have Horchata to drink, is a beautiful gift from Mexico to the world.

    Lovely fresh and zingy flavours, my fave Mexican in London. Canteen-like atmosphere so not ideal for a romantic dinner, but if you want wolf down some tacos then this is ideal.

    The "street tacos" are to die for. Relatively inexpensive food with great atmosphere. It gets absolutely PACKED after 7.30p, wait at the bar with a margarita or a mojito! Cheers!

    Cochinita (pork) tacos were almost perfect, steak and cheese were also ok... horchata water was like in Mexico! Churros with Cajeta were nice too but I didn't like the hot chocolate.

    A lovely place with delicious Mexican food, nice service, great tequila cocktails, and a cool concept as a whole. Try the ceviche tostada (w/ scallops and shrimps)

    Everything was amazing and so so tasty! Slow cooked pork burrito, huitlacoche quesadillas and pork pibil tacos. Really friendly staff and lovely atmosphere.

    Get the pork tacos and the sweet potato taquitos. It's not authentic Mexican food, but it is tasty as anything. Fried plantains make for a great small desert.

    Plantain tacos, chorizo and potato quesadilla are great. They had octopus and scallop ceviche on a special menu and it was amazing

    If there's a group of you I'd try ordering lots of different things. I did it hard to share food sometimes but this worked really well! Plus there's no need for food envy!

    Strongly recommend the Wahaca selection a lot of plates of food for 2. Nice selection of all there wears and gives you a good taste of everything.

    Surprisingly good. Better than the branch over at Westfield. Good service, relatively quick to get a table even on Saturday evenings.

    Sub-par service, but the food is excellent. The bean dishes are a particular highlight (including those that come as sides with larger dishes).

    Get lots of the bite-sized tacos to share. The black bean and corn salad is fantastic too. Skip the guac though, it's quite flavourless.

    Yummy food that is good for sharing. For dessert the caramel salt ice cream and the chocolate/chili/tequila is a must!

    Try the special Baja-California Fish Tacos whilst they are still on the menu. Don't forget to top it off with Churros for dessert!
  • Martin H.
    Be prepared to wait 40 min in the bar to get a table. Service is great. The food is excellent and authentic !

    It's all a bit clean cut living, show me the fat fajitas with cheese oozing out and pork loaded to the seams.

    Great and affordable food. It's hard to not order everything on the menu. Must try: the cactus/courgette tacos and plaintains tacos.
