Mexican
Tucked away in Brewer Street is El Camion, the Soho branch of Ned Conran’s – son of Terence – hip Mexican restaurant that is famous for its huge burritos and devilish cocktail list. This very central location combined with an interior that is all at once both dark and sleek, and kitsch and colourful, El Camion is the perfect venue for dates, pre-theatre bites, late night feasts and birthday parties. Decorated with brightly coloured tablecloths, flowers and a wall display of kooky hot sauces, El Camion is filled with quirky charm but the menu is classically Mexican with all of your favourites from tacos and quesadillas to salads and ice-cold Mexican beers thrown in for good measure.

We operate a hour and a half turn time on all restaurant tables and please keep in mind that we also serve a slightly reduced menu after 10.30 Monday through Saturday

The food was very poor. It was served cold, badly presented, tasted quite bland and the portions were stingy : more like bar-food than for lunch. On top of it all there was a mandatory 12.5% service charge. Pretty disappointed to say the least and will never visit or recommend.

Food was excellent and the staff was nice but we waited for an hour for a basic order. Good to see they are busy again but understaffed for the amount of people there.

Went for some after dinner drinks but the music was way too loud that our ears hurt and we couldn't hear each other speak. Cocktails were OK but I prefer sweet cocktails and they were quite dry.

Super tasty food, excellent drinks & great music as always. Service was a BIT slow, think the wheels are still a bit squeaky as they get up and running.

Great food as always, very rude waitress, who was caught pulling a face at me and snapping simply because I mentioned that I wanted sparkling water NOT soda water, and then for pointing out that there was a FLY in a lime of a friends drink.

I will note, your staff should be wearing a face mask or a visor, and there is no social distancing between tables. I didn't feel completely safe in these times.

The food was delicious but the covid-secure ness needs to be fixed, and your waitress needs to be taught some customer service.

Lunch in Soho... situated in heart of Soho, ideal venue for Fri lunch. Food was excellent and service was swift and attentive. Lacking in a wee bit of ambience on the day due to lack of trade but not the restaurants fault. Overall an excellent Mexican restaurant, serving all the standards. Highly recommended.

Very noisy! The place seems to be more bar than restaurant. The food selection was good and tasty. We were told that one dish per person was enough but a plate of tacos had 4 mini tacos which don’t feel like a full meal.

The servers were friendly but overwhelmed and our extra drink and dessert order didn’t get processed so we were waiting for a long time.

Won’t be rushing back

Tacos were great (chicken and beef). Spiced potatoes were a great side dish and the churros were lovely too. Loved the margaritas and the white Rioja tasted great and was reasonably priced. Had a lovely long lunch catchup with a friend. Our waitress was really friendly, we had a great time and would recommend.

My wife and I visited on a Saturday evening. We had the rack of 9 tacos and an enchilada plus a couple of margaritas each. We've had a lot of Mexican food in our time but this was absolutely stunning! Not too heavy, just full of flavour and delicious. The atmosphere was buzzing and the service was good too. What a brilliant place!

The Mexican place across the street appeared to be far busier, but we were in no disappointed by the food at El Camion. The pork enchiladas and mushroom & queso tacos were both great.
