Great atmosphere and decor, staff were friendly and was busy for a weeknight. Front door doesn't close properly so there was a constant cold draft. Staff were a bit overwhelmed with the number of patrons so service was a bit slow and had to ask for our drinks multiple times. Food was good but not spectacular - we had the taco sharing platter which I thought was expensive for what came out.
Overall we probably wouldn't go again.

We had a great time! The margaritas were good the best we’ve ever had and the overall experience of the food was amazing, not to mention the taste which was exquisite. We loved the place and will defo return. The price, is totally justified

Great Mexican flavours, with some classic combos as well as new flavour innovations, along with a plentiful selection of cocktails that must be tried. Would definitely come back again.

Great atmosphere and drinks but Vegan food was quite stodgy. Recommend the cactus salad as a welcome taste bud experience but the vegan enchiladas with bland potatoes and vegetables are a tastebud miss not rescued by the sauce. Also they were very attentive, which made me feel like they were trying to turn round tables which was a shame as it was a catch up with a friend I hadn’t seen in a while

Mole enchiladas were good but food was not warm. Two orders, guacamole and tres leche cake did not arrive to table. We ended up cancelling cake. Staff helpful but seemed overwhelmed.

I’ve been here twice before with great food and service but last night was appalling. The server took ages to take our order, got our appetizer wrong and drinks were subpar. The empanadas were bland and our mains were underwhelming. Really disappointing experience and we won’t be back.

Coming from a southwest states standpoint, not the best Mexican food. I’ve never had a chile relleno with potatoes, carrots and peas. Tortilla chips were not corn tortillas and the salsa was so-so. Delicious tres leches though.

I’ve been here many times and the food is always excellent. This is, hands down, the best Mexican restaurant in London. Coming from the US, there is lots of good Mexican food and I miss it in London. When I’m craving good Mexican this is the only place to come! Also I love popping into the grocery store next-door for some at home necessities! Make sure to plan your visit around the grocery store’s opening hours!

The tables are crammed in tight so it's tricky for the servers, but the food, drinks and atmosphere are brilliant! If recommend it to anyone. Also, pop next door to their market to buy ingredients you really like.

We love authentic Mexican food so when we planned to stay in London for the evening I looked for a nice Mexican restaurant.

The restaurant is not in the nicest part of London to put it mildly but we didn't let that put us off.

When we entered the restaurant we were greeted by a young lady that was fairly nice and showed us to our table.

However the older lady waitress we ended up with was outright rude. When we asked any questions about the menu we were shut down.

We had looked at the menu beforehand and were pleased to see a range of choices. With alot of options familiar to us.

However when we arrived we were told a limited menu was available as it was Mole week.

As a vegetarian I am familiar with not having many options available but I was presented with very little choice so ordered the vegetarian mole as the waitress said it was like a flavoursome curry dish. This was a lie. I was presented with a flavourless watery soup like dish. I ended up leaving most of it. We paid, left and got some different food else where.

We would never choose to eat there again and would recommend others against doing so also.

Absolutely top level service. To start with, they coped perfectly with the fact that my dining partner's train had been cancelled so we needed to delay our dinner for an hour. No problem at all.
Phenomenal range of cocktails and wide range of food.
Not surprisingly, being a tequila bar, it isn't somewhere to go for a quiet meal. But the energy of the place adds to the experience.
