    Mexican market eating in London, close to the Olympic Park. Here’s the closest you'll get to American style Mexican food, and it’s delicious and quick. It also caters well to gluten intolerant folks.

    The sharing platter is 19 quid and wonderful for two people. Some puffy pork scratchings with guacamole are to die for!! Lots of Margaritas to wash it down. Great place...

    Ask first for some guacamole, it comes with nachos, then have the Pork pibil which is a very good option with a corona or pacific Clara. At this point you will be full enough if not get a quesadilla

    Loud, crowded, but yummy! 2-3 small dishes per person should be enough. Absolute favorites are pork pibil and cactus/courgette tacos, and scallop/shrimp ceviche. Keep an eye on changing specials!

    I'm from Arizona and have had some of the most authentic and delicious Mexican food. That being said, Wahaca is some of the best Mexican food I've ever had! Delicious, well done London!

    Top of the list is definitely the margarita! Classic, with a twist, you name it! The staff is always incredibly welcoming and efficient, and the specials are always worth the curiosity!

    It is less busy and more spacious than the Southbank one, so pretty enjoyable. Its cool to mix and match several smaller dishes to make a meal..! Try duck taquitos if they are still available.

    This branch isn't as buzzy as the others but as always the fresh, seasonal food and service are great. Pork pibil is always a fav but try the fuerza salad, Barragan cocktail and the churros too

    Great feel-good Mexican food. Lovely atmosphere. Tried the chicken enchilada & it was good, so were the sweet potato wedges.

    Busy during the week but takeaway line moves quickly. If their upstairs bar is open take your burrito there for comfy seats and a view.

    Guacamole roulette! We order it every time but it only shows up if our waiter feels like we are guac-worthy.

    Wahaca is great but this place is awful! Burrito was hard and filling, poorly prepared. Poor service. I have heard from others that this wahaca is particularly bad too, where's the quality control?
