Diner Reviews
  • "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 "

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "This is the only restaurant I've found in London that really is like being back in Mexico City. The food is authentic - down to the tacos al pastor and the nopales (cactus!). The cocktails are also very good - I can highly recommend the Cadillac margarita. The only downside is the service. There seems to be a permanent shortage of waitstaff...but those who are there are definitely helpful."
    dined on 17/01/2014
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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
  • "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..."
    dined on 09/02/2014
  • "The food was incredible... I can't wait to go back. The service was outstanding which pleasantly surprised me. In terms of looks it's your typical Mexican joint but it's all kinds of special in other ways."
    dined on 07/02/2014
  • "Loved it! Great value, could not ask for better value great tacos!! Will be coming here again very soon, very good cocktails!! Staff were excellent"
    dined on 02/02/2014
  • "Good drinks / quick and quality food / value for money is good"
    dined on 31/01/2014
  • "We arrived 15 minutes late, then had to wait an additional 15 minutes for our table (good thing we were late!!!). The guacamole was bland and needed salt and lime, the tortillas in the enchiladas fell apart and dissolved in the sauce, the rice was mediocre and the blackbean sauce tasted like it was out of a can (although there was barely any anyways!). I've been to Mexico plenty of times and am from the States so I've had my fair share of authentic Mexican food and this was not it. The good thing was that the prices weren't too steep, so it wasn't too bad."
    dined on 11/01/2014
  • "We went for a relaxed dining and drinks night with some friends in December. The place is relaxed (perhaps the waiters were a bit too much so at times) and the food was good (both tasted great and there was a good selection to choose from). The cocktails they were mixing were excellent, just a bit on the pricey side, so we ended up leaving a bit early to find a slightly cheaper place to end our evening."
    dined on 20/12/2013
  • "I would go again for the food but last time i was next to an office Christmas party and a restaurant that is already pretty noisy became unbearable"
    dined on 12/12/2013
  • "Ok for a change from the norm, better than several other Mexican/ Latino restaurants in town for variety and quality. Waiters helpful with dietary requirements. Not particularly memorable."
    dined on 13/08/2013
  • "Food is excellent - very tasty - nicely presented. Service, not so great. Staff cant speak very good english so its difficult to understand them and they dont seem to understand you when ask questions about the menu. The venue was so noisy due to the tables being very close together and people standing at the bar. Food was thown down on the table by the waiter who when we asked him which was which he just rattled something off which wasnt english and charged off."
    dined on 22/11/2013
  • "We had high hopes for our visit to Boho Mexica, but we were very disappointed with our evening there. The food was the biggest disappointment. First of all, it is quite expensive for what it is. I would have been happy to pay that, if the meal had been good, but it was not. Both our main courses arrived lukewarm. The food itself was bland and visually the plate was quite unappealing - all shades of brown - and in the low light of the restaurant actually very hard to see what you are eating. We could find none of the Mexican flavours we were looking for on the menu and settled for something recommended by the waitress. The service was also quite abrupt. I will not be back, and would unfortunately not recommend this place to anyone."
    dined on 13/11/2013
  • "Great tequila, great cocktails and very tasty food. We enjoyed the ambience and decor of Boho Mexica and would definitely go again. If anything could be improved, the wait staff could be a little more attentive. Besides that, they were lovely, friendly and very helpful."
    dined on 07/11/2013
  • "The place is not very spacious and it was very busy for a saturday night. There was hardly any room to take in a cocktail before seating. However despite the fear of loosing your table, the food was excellent!!! I really found it to be close to the authentic flavours of southern Mexico and the portion sizes for mains bigger then Wahaca or Lupita. The margaritas were quite smooth and really good even if you normally do not like tequila."
    dined on 02/11/2013
  • "Drinks are only cold if you drink alcohol: if, like me, you're driving and want a soft drink, it's served nice and warm! I ordered a vegetarian dish and when it arrived it was a massive slab of something like refried beans, with a sauce on top and 3 slices of fried plantain. Eating all that would have been a punishment! Admittedly it fit the description on the menu, but I thought there'd be a bit more variety on the plate, not just a 6"x6" slab of fairly bland gunk. Won't be going back."
    dined on 01/11/2013
  • "If you are looking for something a little different then Boho Mexica is a good choice. A welcoming, relaxed vibe and a wide selection of interesting regional Mexican cooking adds up to great food to eat with friends. The rich strews such as the Asado De Boda Edde, a diced pork in an orange, cinnamon and chilli sauce and the Pipian Verde, pork ecalopes in a herby pre-hispanic sauce were both delicious."
    dined on 01/10/2013
  • "Seating was squashed , was looking forward to a decent margerhita but for 8 pounds for a glass filled mostly with ice cubes , huge rip off. As for the food I'm not one to complain but my favorite Mexican dish -sizzling fajitas weren't on the menu. I was in a first date and we were seated next to a very loud and drunk table of ladies so we could barely hold a conversation . All in all, won't be going back."
    dined on 26/10/2013
  • "Great, tasty meal with friends at boho miexica again - will be back again soon no doubt Taco starters great for sharing and the margaritas fantastic"
    dined on 19/10/2013
  • "Enjoyed an evening of cocktails and some very tasty Mexican food - would definitely return, great place for a relaxed fun meal. Cocktails are standard London pricing, so not cheap, but were v. tasty."
