Set on London’s most vibrant square, Leicester Square Kitchen introduces a Mexican and Peruvian dining experience serving small plates and innovative cocktails. From exquisite tacos to fine skewered meats from the Peruvian barbecue, the menu takes diners on a journey through the unique flavours of South America.

With Soho and Covent Garden on the doorstep, Leicester Square Kitchen is the perfect place to enjoy a pre-theatre dinner. The restaurant is just a few minutes' walk from iconic West End theatres such as Harold Pinter Theatre, Garrick Theatre, Her Majesty's Theatre and many more.

We invite you to join us for a pre-dinner drink on our terrace or in the neighbouring At The Hampshire Lounge Bar prior to your dining experience. At weekends, resident DJs provide a backing track to a fun and memorable night in town.

Please note that from Sunday to Tuesday the menu will be limited to the lounge bar menu.

    Amazing food. Small tapas style plates of Mexican and Peruvian food, good variety for all tastes, I am veggie and plenty of choices. Service was brilliant, constantly topped up with water and wine. We ate at 6pm so it wasn't full and were out and able to catch the 8pm train back from Waterloo but service was not rushed. It was my daughter’s birthday and they gave her a macaroon on a decorated birthday plate which we had not asked for so a lovely surprise. Definitely would go again and highly recommend it. Thank you

    We were so impressed with our whole evening. Every member of staff we interacted with was so friendly and the speed of the service and attention to detail was amazing. The food was absolutely fantastic and we've kept saying we want to eat it again at most mealtimes since!

    Delicious. Our small plates’ order was tacos, Peruvian barbecue chicken kabob and waygu chorizo cheese sliders. Social thanks to the chef for preparing a garlic free of Mexican rice side dish (fresh peas! & parsley)—the perfect counterpoint to the spicy flavors of our other dishes. Excellent wait staff. Highly recommended.

    The 5 members of my party all agreed the food was scrumptious, especially the tiger prawns, duck salad and beef strips with dipping sauce. Service was not only good, but the waiters seemed to take genuine pleasure out of the fact that we were enjoying our meal so much. Much more reasonably priced than I had expected in Central London. Based on prior reviews I was concerned about the noise level because I was meeting two people for the first time. However, they sat us near the window and noise was not an issue.

    When we arrived there were only a handful of people. Very attentive when getting seated and drinks, but they never came back for ordering, it took forever. I booked a reservation based on the reviews; the food did not live up to them. Everything we ordered was so saturated in oils, even the rice was swimming in it, best part of our meal was their guacamole. It’s unfortunate, it’s such a nice ambiance.
