Diner Reviews
  • "We chose Bohos on reading reviews on the internet. We wanted a restaurant that was not a chain in east London. On line it looked just the place but unfortunately itwas a disappointment, especially as it was my birthday. Our group was aged between 17 and 52 years. The Spanish waitress was friendly and welcoming but unfortunately unfamiliar with the menu. The Chef did come up to help. The lunch menu selection was less than on the internet for lunch. We asked plain tortilla chips with melted cheese but they said they couldnt do this. Our starters were tasty and There was a good selection of drinks. Some of the mains were dissappointing and luke warm.. We didnt stay for desert. Just feel very dissappointed and let down that the reviews."

  • "Booked the table for 8 and finally got the table fot 8-45. Told to wait at the (small) bar...recieved one drink from an order of 2 drinks whilst waiting. The other turned up at the table. Food was well cooked and tasted fine. The resturant is small and they cram as many tables as possible in. Its tight to say the least. It was how ever fully booked and busy on a thursday night...so maybe ive got the place all wrong."

  • "Terrible beyond belief, miserable unfriendly staff, food tasteless and cold, cocktails tasteless and overpriced. I made the mistake of taking friends from NYC, we were all appalled - DO NOT GO THERE !"
    dined on 09/08/2014
  • "We went with a voucher and the staff was just not prepared or trained at all to understand how the voucher works!! Moreover, for Sunday brunch which is usually peak time, there was just one waitress and one bartender available. So as you can imagine, there was a long long wait after placing the orders... On the plus side, however, the food is very good and flavourful."
    dined on 03/08/2014
  • "food and atmosphere was outstanding, however our visit was hampered by the pretty shoddy service. we arrived 5 minutes early for our booking, were seated and had our order taken by a waitress who didn't introduce herself (otherwise she would be mentioned in this review, believe me...) and seemed to be continually drinking wine from the bottle behind the counter ? (i like to party but come on, a bit unprofessional) 1 hour later i asked where our food was (from another staff member) and was told no order had been put into the computer for our table, it took another 35 minutes from then before we ate anything and as a result we missed our last train and had to get night busses. regardless, the food was cheap and amazing so i would come back"

  • "Having eaten Mexican food numerous times across the world including in Mexico I alas cannot recommend this restaurant at all. The ambience and service was fine but as soon as the watered down Margharita arrived I guessed we were not in for a treat. The tacos were the worst I've ever tasted - I include supermarket ones in this statement. The advocado in the giacolmole was hard and having informed the waiter we didn't get another or any discount. Luckily for us the main of pulled pork was quite tasty."
    dined on 01/08/2014
  • "I loved my meal as it an entree that is very traditional in Oaxaca but my husband thought his braised pork was a touch like gristle covered up with flavour. The plantains sides were absolutely delicious. It was quite expensive and very loud, even though we huddled in the quietest corner of the back bar - not a place to go for a romantic meal. Margaritas were good but overall pricey. The attraction is the menu has offerings that go beyond most Mexican restaurants in London."

  • "Cool place nice vibes. Wine nice food tasty. Atmosphere perfect"
    dined on 10/07/2014
  • "The staff were really friendly but service was very slow even though it was a Monday. No-one checked on us, we always had to call someone over. The drinks were nice, but my meal was not great. A whole lot of cheese and tiny bit of meat in the Quesadilla's and a bit of lettuce on the side. Nachos & Guacamole was good. Overall, it was a bit disappointing. Would however try again, but it might just've been a poor meal choice!"
    dined on 07/07/2014
  • "I went ot Boho Mexica on a busy friday night, the ambience was great, the service was fantastic and the good was spot on. A great menu, executed with perfection. A thoroughly enjoyable night. Would reccomend highly and will certainly be going back!"
    dined on 27/06/2014
  • "First thing you notice is the atmosphere. If you don't mind noise then this place is perfect. Food was great. Only negative was nobody at front of house? We had to find a member of staff to get seated. Overall good value for money."
    dined on 14/06/2014
  • "Well this is real mexican, I can reccomend the Diablo Prawn main dish and the Wedding Stew main dish, too many "Mexican" "Restaurants" these days are "Taco and Burrito" if I want that I get that at lunch time, with a coke, here the mexican food and oh did I mention the Mescal Cocktails are the real deal. A good night out with drinks for two £90, but it keeps the riff raff away :)"
    dined on 03/06/2014
  • "nice atmosphere, relatively cheap for good food in London, fabulously strong cocktails - blueberry mojito is a must!"
    dined on 23/05/2014
  • "Quality traditional Mexican food, wicked atmosphere, and great cocktails!!!"
    dined on 02/05/2014
  • "Whenever we feel the urge for Mexican this is where we go. Lovely atmosphere, delicious cocktails and a great menu to choose from."
    dined on 01/05/2014
  • "The restaurant is intimate and cosy and i like the ambience, the food is delicious, but the portions are small, the rice is smaller than a child's portion. was upset that i asked for a condiment of sauce and then found out that i was charged £1.50 for it, i dont think this is good. would only use on special occasions as not cheap thanks"
    dined on 24/04/2014
  • "Great food, authentic Mexican cuisine. The choice is great and the food was fresh and hot. The only down side is the restaurant and tables are a little small, the pricing is all over the place, alcohol overally expensive, food is a good price for what you get. The service was average to good, but was fairly j discreet about wanting us to finish and leave "
    dined on 16/04/2014
  • "Boho Mexica is one of my favorite restaurants in London. The venue is cool, the food is delicious and the cocktails are great. They also play amazing music. Love it."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "This was my second visit to Boho Mexica and getting there early (before the evening rush) meant we could sit at the bar and have a chat with the bar man, who was excellent. The spicy beer with tomato is odd but so good and we enjoyed a mescal, which the barman took time to explain what all the different once were, before we sat down. This is quality, authentic Mexican food. The flavours are great, portion sizes about right and the chicken wings were crispy on the outside and juicy in the middle, like an armadillo. I would highly recommend this place, it's relaxed, excellent cocktails. My wife said it was the best espresso martini she has ever had - and she's had a few! You can enjoy yourself here."
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "Made a reservation for noon for a work lunch with colleagues. When we arrived at the restaurant there was no one there. The doors were locked and there wasn't a person in sight. We ended up going somewhere else for lunch. "
    dined on 10/04/2014
  • "We had a booking with friends. When we arrived we were shown to the bar for 15 mins as our table wasn't ready, which was a bit frustrating as we had a booking and had already had pre-dinner drinks. The food was tasty, but far too expensive for what it was. Other reviewers have commented on this too. Service was fairly swift although we had to keep flagging the waiter down. Overall, we enjoyed the meal but some improvements could be made."
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "I have been here a couple of times before and always had a great experience. However on my last visit, 20 minutes after arriving we had to call the waiter over to ask for our drinks as nobody it seemed was coming to serve us. This set the tone for the entire evening; the waiter was unattentive and when he did come over he smelled of tobacco and was really rude. Our starters never appeared so had to be removed from the bill, the mains were good but more luke warm than hot. If you were paying really cheap prices you might be willing to let it go but for the prices the standard of food and the shoddy service just isn't good enough."
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "A great find...Boho Mexica is delicious! The menu is super authentic and it's nice to finally have a Mexican restaurant with a menu that reflects the diverse cuisine of my beautiful home country."
    dined on 06/04/2014
  • "Was very busy when we arrived..we ordered chicken wings and beef brisket for starter and was really delish! The waiters bought out 2 avo salsa dips with tortilla chips without asking and we thought it was complimentary but we got charged for them. The drinks took ages to come, and it was not that great for cocktails to honest. . Our main was not living up to the starter expectation ... the squid and octopus rice with soft tortilla main was amazing.. the pork and grilled pineapple tacos was boring and pork was dry. the lamb corn tortilla was very dry as well.. the waiters was very welcoming in the beginning but towards the end they couldnt wait to get us out... our reservation was till 930 and they were pressuring us out by 9.05pm not cool!"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "The food was great and the waiters/waitresses were nice and friendly. However with 1.5 hours table time you barely get time to order drink and then food, eat and then bam you get your bill. I felt I was in a fast food restaurant. And for the prices they charge, which are higher than the average Mexican restaurant, I think customers should have the right to stay in a bit longer and actually enjoy their meal rather than rush everything."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Very relaxed vibe and the food was amazing! The staff were friendly and attentive. It was a Friday night so got packed fairly early (had to book). Quite tight for space and there is only one ladies loo. All in all a positive experience!"
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "This was a last minute booking at Boho Mexica, the food was ok but not exceptional this evening. The meat was bland and the taste was not to the level we anticipated based on the buzz around this restaurant."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "Cute little Mexican which has people queueing out the door. The menu is more unusual than most standard Mexicans but I'd recommend it! Cool bar and lighting in the place. The staff are very friendly and the service was good. The food was a tiny bit on the expensive side for what it was, but only by a quid or two. Overall I'd recommend this place for anyone, meeting friends or couples. I'd eat there again and would sample some more of the drinks menu too!"
    dined on 22/03/2014
  • "A random choice from timeout london and what a good choice it was! Fantastic food and cocktails! Wonderful service - we were well taken care of by the great staff. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."
    dined on 15/03/2014
  • "We had to wait for more than 40 mins to be seated although we had a reservation. When asking about it we've been told that this just happens, nobody apologised for the inconvenience. So after standing around in a packed restaurant for 15 mins we left again and agreed that they would give us a call once the table is ready. Food was pretty bad, too much tamerind in one of the main courses and portion size of the second main course was ridiculous especially considered that it was £15. Starters were average and the chicken wings looked and tasted like KFC, surprisingly they came with a tamerind sauce which tasted exactly like the my main course. Our waitress was nice which was the only good thing about our experience at BM."
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "I would recommend this restaurant except we weren't told we had to be out by 9pm after sitting down at 7.30pm. Service charge was included on the bill and I wouldn't have wanted to tip there. After enjoying meal and drink it was a very disappointing end to the night. It's just poor customer service"
    dined on 14/03/2014
  • "Really enjoyed our evening here - great vibe, our waiter was really attentive and the food was totally different to that which I am used to when it comes to Mexican. Loved it and will come back!"
    dined on 13/03/2014
  • "This was a very good Mexican Restaurants. It was not cheap and there were not specials or deals. This restaurant should have specials or deals so people know about this place. They were very busy and the staff were as attentive as they could be- but its not a place where you go to get that extra attention. Overall, I would say good restaurant that could be more and offer more specials."
    dined on 08/03/2014
  • "I came here for my birthday and wasn't feeling very well. The waitress very happily cancelled my main meal for me with no fuss at very last minute. The restaurant is reasonably priced and although I didn't have a main, my starter was delicious and all my guests main meals were great value and very yummy."
    dined on 26/02/2014
  • "Boho Mexica is unlike most other places offering Mexican food in recognition of the fact the cuisine doesn't solely consist of tacos and burritos. Enjoyable meal with a great vibe."
    dined on 25/02/2014
  • "I had a great evening with my friend here, the service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was buzzing. Unfortunately my dish was exceptionally bland and lacking in texture, so I was really disappointed with the food. I would definitely recommend a friend to come here for cocktails but I won't be coming back for food."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Boho Mexica is a great,ambient restaurant. I've been many times and the food & drinks are great. The house cocktail is the best & the ceviche is great. A consistently good place in Shoreditch & have always had a great time there. The best Mexican in London definitely."
    dined on 21/02/2014
  • "Nice food, not many veggie options though, good atmosphere with loud music, good for a group of mates."
    dined on 20/02/2014
  • "Went here last night, and it was fantastic. You guys killed it! Thanks so much :D"
    dined on 12/02/2014
  • "The food was good and the serving was of good size (more than enough). Would've gotten a higher mark if the food had been a bit more spicy..."
