Exceptional food and drinks! The portions were huge and great value for money. The team were excellent in handling social distancing, cleanliness and safety. They gave us a new set of cutlery in a plastic bag each serving and all staff had masks on. There was a huge range of dishes to choose from and all were authentically Mexican. We will definitely be visiting again soon!

Great Mexican spot. Lovely food from starters to desserts and a nice menu set up for sharing. Cocktails were good too. We had a lovely server (the American guy - didn't get his name) who was so bubbly and a pleasure to deal with, who gave us some menu recommendations

Fantastic service. Food was incredible. Everyone involved should be proud of the service and food delivered. In a post covid world this industry may scare or worry some of the safety of themselves and fellow guests. I assure anyone thinking of dinning here I felt safe. My partner and I were sufficiently spaced from other dinners and staff were efficient in their interactions with us. We were also recommended to space our courses out (time wise) as if everything came at once, as we asked, we may not enjoy it so much. Also if we were full after the first course we could cancel the second. We did take the second course as we enjoyed the first so much.
If you want a safe eating experience with friendly, knowlegable, helpful staff and great food I'd recommend heading here.

This was my second time here because the first time (back in 2018!) was decent. However, very disappointed that we didn't have a good meal this time round! We ordered a classic margarita, a jalapeño margarita, pollo con mole tamales, pollo pibil tacos and bistek tacos.

The tamales were really average - plenty of corn, barely any meat. we could taste the mole but there was literally no pollo in them!

The pollo pibil tacos were delicious - chicken was succulent and full of flavour. Loved the corn taco shells too. The bistek (steak) tacos however were awful! Super dry, overcooked, very chewy.

The drinks were okay. They use El Jimador tequila which isn't the best quality if you want good margaritas. Which is disappointing when we make better margaritas at home.

All in all, would not recommend. However maybe things would be different if we tried the other mains, but I do feel something the basics should always be done right at a good restaurant.

Our experience did not start well - being ignored by four or five different members of staff upon our arrival is not what I consider to be 'a warm welcome'. Despite loads of reviews stating otherwise, I found the food to be distinctly average - apart from the guacamole, which was very tasty. As a group of three, we were all very happy with the new hygiene and distancing measures which the restaurant have put in place - it felt very safe eating there and using their facilities. The QR code to menu on your phone might not work for older, less tech-savvy people - it is a big menu, with a lot of information and choices available - and doesn't fit easily onto a 5" phone screen.... bring your laptop - or check the menu before you go!

Food was fantastic, as was the service. Very attentive. Margarita pitchers seemed expensive but four of us got around 2 each per pitcher, so worked out to around £5 which is very reasonable.

A really great Mexican restaurant with a range of Mexican food, which feels like a rare find in London. So much more than tacos! The food is well priced, the margaritas are a bit expensive but very good. The Taco tray as a main was delicious, fun and a great way to try lots of things.

The food was very overpriced and lacking flavour. My boyfriend and I both ordered tacos and the restaurant were so stingey with the onion, cheese and coriander. There was barely enough for 1 person on there and when we asked for more it was an additional charge. The restaurant reminded me of something out of Gordon Ramseys kitchen nightmares

I was recommended this place by several friends here in London so I booked for a gathering of 5 friends. I was disappointed by the food as soon as it arrived. I was expecting authentic Mexican food and it was definitely not authentic. It was an English version of Mexican. The drinks are very good, and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Shame the food isn’t great because the athmosphere is great!

We are regulars there whenever we go to London. As an American is’t hard to find good Mexican cuisine. A plus that it is close to Euston Station. They never disappoint.

Without a doubt, the most disappointing Mexican restaurant I have been to. The service was no better than average and the food was tasteless. The nachos we ordered for a starter were fine but the burritos for main course were very poor. We couldn’t eat more than half of what was on the plates as it was so disappointing. I was looking forward to a beer and snacks as a pre-cursor but they didn’t even have decent salsa. We will not be going back

We had heard great things about this restaurant.....The Nacho starter was fantastic. There were 3 of us, 2 did the sharing lamb dish which was very nice as well. However the other meal is where it all went wrong. The wrong meal was delivered, vegetarian as oppose to meat and that was an understandable mistake as there had been some discussion on vegetables although that was meant as a side. Manager came over said he would bring replacement which cam very quickly however it was cold. So had to get another one sent. So by this time the 2 sharers had finished their meal and the 3rd not started. Strangely the server then brought our bill, which hadn't been asked for. Once meal finished we paid the bill to another server and proceeded to start to leave. We were then approached by original server who had asked us if we had actually paid. At no point was their ever any animosity on either side. It was my daughter's birthday and the whole thing was just slightly disappointing.

Great authentic Mexican food. was really great to find a place like this. The market was closed when we got there, I wish they could still sell things like tortillas from their market in the restaurant.
