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.

    I was pleasantly surprised when this restaurant was available for a short notice booking (as all other ones, near Piccadilly, were fully booked!). We liked its atmosphere, staff was very helpful and polite, Set Menu was good enough for us to enjoy it, and the main thing!!! - music sound was at a lower level, giving you opportunity to talk and not shout, as it usually happens in other restaurants! We will definitely visit this restaurant again when the occasion happens. Thank you very much!

    Overdone in many ways. Music too loud (even the waitress struggled to make herself heard over it); food very hyped in flavour; portion sizes far too big for the amount recommended for ordering; service was hit-and-miss- the waitress was very good and kept us informed, but the kitchen seemed to struggle to get the food out in a timely way so we were left waiting for more half an hour with no food at one point. Very costly meal out as well (£150 for the recommended food options - 3 small plates, 2 large plates, 2 sides with 2 cocktails, 1 beer and glass of sparkling water between two people). Unlikely to return.

    OpenTable allowed me to book the terrace but we turned up and that was closed. The restaurant was also just about empty at 2pm for our late lunch. No matter, the service was great and the food was fantastic. Will be back.

    Eating at Leicester Square Kitchen is always a pleasure. Not only the staff is very welcoming but also you get to taste to the finest Mexican and Peruvian cuisine. They offered us macaroons for our wedding anniversary. Thanks again for this lovely attention. My husband and I will always remember it. Melodie

    Having eaten at Peter Street Kitchen in Manchester we were keen to try LSK , we came to celebrate my daughter's birthday . The overall service was not great , food being served when plates from previous dishes were still on the table , no one was really attentive to see if all was ok or if we needed anything, I felt like we were constantly asking for something , drinks , missing food items etc. Food however was 10/10 , no complaints at all , food was as good here as it is in Manchester. The restaurant manager probably needs to ensure there are enough staff on duty and to make sure they pay attention to their guests.

    A nice restaurant to share food with friends. Sónia and her staff provided us with a wonderful evening. Janet, the lovely waitress, took good care of us. If you enjoy spicy food for sharing, this is the place to be.
