    Best Mexican food in London and this comes from a girl who is born and raised in North Mexico, this place is a must visit! Excelente comida! Try the Street Tacos.

    The first Mexican restaurant in London and with its new , improved menu and better ingredients this is a winner . Tom Estes , the owner brought Tequila to Europe and is now the official ambassador :)

    Amazing, combo fajita (steak/chicken) was full of flavour and very reasonably priced for the amount of food, The wonderful homemade guacamole and salsa was worth it alone, can't wait to go back again!

    Tasty Mexican with some great house specialities - the steak salad is spicy and HUGE! Delicious margaritas and a great cocktail list.

    Nachos and margarita! Also should try fajita and Pacifico beer, it is a destination that every time I come london I always eat in.

    Sit at the bar. Ask for the best tequilas and splurge. Stay away from Padron, Sauza. Herradura, Centennario & the ilk and get jiggy with the jig!

    Good Tex-Mex, the burrito especial is a whole lot of eating. No 'proper' hot sauce available (although the staff were really helpful), but the house chipotle is tasty.

    Always busy but don't let that put you off. Turnaround is quick so grab a drink (margarita tradicional!) at the bar and you'll have a table in no time. Great enchiladas.

    Nothing like the authentic Mexican food, but considering Mexico is many kilometers away, this place is great. Try the chicken, mole enchiladas!! Add a side order of guacamole, so good!!

    Good Mexican food. Not too sure about the beany goop that comes with most meals. I prefer Wahaca for the more zingy and fresh flavours, or Benito's Hat for a quick bite. Yummy caipirinhas though.

    Good alternative to the well-known chains: this place offers decent and unpretentious food.

    I love this place . The first Mexican in London since '76 and the friendliest vibe . Good to see my old friend Kai here - the manager of the extinct Charlotte st La Perla who schooled me on tequila!

    Smoked chicken quesadillas are great, guacamole is a bit too smooth, street tacos are pretty good. The margaritas are decent but I wish they had more options!

    Nice place and decor. The chilli con carne is good but fiery, if you can handle it you'll love it. A 12.5% tip is automatically added to the bill.

    It is a Good Mexican for London, and not a chain. But the venue's design and furniture are really too basic and simple to actually want to come back.

    The tempura sea bass and king prawn tacos were delicious. They were very busy but food came out quite quick.

    The pulled pork tacos were really good. Service seemed good and reliable to me, also careful to allergy requirements.

    My favourite little Mecican place in London. Go for the slowly cocked pork, be careful the chilli sauce you get on the side is pretty spicey.

    Have a couple of drinks at the bar before you get a table. Herradura tequila is great. Margharitas are good, daquiries maybe too sweet; other Latin drinks are available. The food rocks.

    This place is OK. If they keep their lunch deal it may be worth another visit but I'm really unimpressed. Service is average too.

    Just order drinks at the bar - they will have to bring you free food so as not to contravene UK liquor license laws

    Uninspiring food, lacking flavour and freshness - two things I expect in abundance from Mexican cuisine when done properly.

    Do not get the smoked chicken quesadilla it's just sandwich meat and cheese. The margaritas are good and will make you forget how bad the food tastes.

    Street tacos were ok, tacos themselves weren't as soft as they should be. Good chips & salsa and margaritas. Service was a little slow

    The margarita is to die for but tell them to go light on the ice!
