    Fab place buzzing with parties and groups. Fun and feisty, rather than sophisticated. Recommended sharers tasty. Cocktails come out quickly. Amazing hot sauce plate w/ 4 diff dips. Store nextdoor has an awesome selection of long life produce. Downstairs dining quite loud, see if you can request upstairs if you're hard of hearing.

    Staff upstairs would settle guests and then bring them downstairs to accommodate larger parties. We got reseated, along with about 5 other groups. Downstairs there were only 2 waiters and 1 bartender! There was a bit of a wait (understandably) for drinks, staff downstairs was very kind. Food was great

    Overall, the food was great, however the service was very mixed. When we arrived there did not seem to be anyone checking in people in their tables, once we finally got sat, it took a while for us to get any service and I had to call on the waiter to take our order, as well as ask for tap water twice, as the first time was ignored. I definitely think the service could be better organised in terms of seating and taking orders. Conveniently, when we asked for the bill this was brought swiftly. The mezcal was particularly overpriced in my opinion for the amount you receive.

    During my visit, I enjoyed the authentic flavours of Mexican cuisine. The waiters were very accommodating to my friend who does not eat spicy food. They reassured her that the dish was not spicy, but to give her some peace of mind, they brought along a small sample.

    Finally, delicious, authentic Mexican food in London! We enjoyed it thoroughly. We didn’t know that Sundays required everyone to order the brunch buffet, but we were fine paying the all-you-can eat price because there was so much variety and tastiness. I look forward to going back and trying the a la carte menu. The margaritas were excellent!

    We arrived 30 mins early due to plans ending early and the staff were great to and accomodate us. The staff were great and had so much positivity, which really made our experience. Beside this the food and drinks were amazing. Super authentic dishes, some of which we had never tried before. The downstairs was a little noisy at times but overall it was a great restaurant and would definitely go back!

    The restaurant is extremely loud during peak hours, and you are barely likely to hear anything your group is speaking when you visit during these times. Few unfriendly staff also made us feel not very accommodated as well. Tables are also extremely close to other tables, and alongside the noisy atmosphere, this restaurant more feels like a cheap family restaurant with tables arranged in a way so it could pack the most people it possibly can. However food is great and you would definitely enjoy them if you are a meat lover. I visited this restaurant a year ago for a birthday dinner, and I feel like service and atmosphere has only decreased since then.

    Where are the fresh herbs and salsas? The punchy flavours? The food here was either sweet (a syrupy mole with no smokiness, depth or heat--only sugar) or simply bland (corn cake dessert needed cinnamon, or cloves, or something--it didn't even taste much like corn!). None of the brightness or earthiness of Mexican food on display. Even old staples like rice and beans disappointed.

    The food is delicious with a great variety of cocktails and non-alcoholic options. Highly recommend it for the food. However, the service needs improvement. Wait times to order are long, items are forgotten, and getting assistance from other waiters is challenging. I’ve been to this place often, but the service seems to be declining.

    Excellent visit, booked for special occasion (partner's birthday) . Alex was very helpful in getting everything set up, and making sure everything went well for us during our visit (timeliness of service, drinks, etc.). Even managed to get birthday 'flare', drink, and birthday cake before our early departure! Rest of party enjoyed churros in our absence :-( , ...but we'll definitely be back!! :-)

    Inattentive and forgetful service, solid food. We were excited to dine here and shop at the market but the market was closed due to inventory (posting the delayed market opening on social media is helpful). The service was lacklustre, we had to ask several times and several people for my partner’s bottled beverage. There was very little interaction…as in almost non-existent. The food was solid and flavourful, corn tortillas were a welcome surprise. Hopefully the market will be open normal hours if we return.

    Got seated and after 15 minutes of sitting there, we had to ask for our menus. Food was room temperature, and my son ordered tacos which never came out with tortillas had to ask several times for them. However after eating they were efficient of getting us out of our table for the next group of people.

    Had high expectations based on reviews. Food was tasteless, and lukewarm, for 2 people we had a starter, taco sharing board, which included 12 little bowls. 4 chosen protein based toppings that had almost no seasoning, 4 bland sauces and 4 small toppers. The starter recommended by a waiter who advised against ordering two starters and sharing board, was ok-ish but basically cold. And we ended up ordering extra food in the end. The service was pretty bad. The waiter unable to answer questions in regards to menu. He also shouted over us to communicate with all tables near us. Very little space between tables, feeling like you're sitting with strangers, not enough space for a waiter to pass through without putting their elbows practically in your face, or to put your coats so they also were in a way and landed on a floor whenever someone needed to pass by. Overall great idea, but reality rather disappointing. Would definitely not visit again.

    Chose this restaurant because I needed somewhere near Euston at short notice, to meet my daughter. The reviews were really positive. It was an early evening booking (5.15) and the place was very quiet when I got there. I eat out a lot in a variety of restaurants and have been lucky enough to taste some great Mexican food in the past, I wasn't so lucky this time. The waiter strongly recommended the molcajete sharing dish so we got the chicken version. Less than 2 minutes later it appeared on the table, which was a bit of a surprise, which would have been ok, but for the taste of it. It was not good at all, the chicken was stringy and tasteless, the chorizo overly strong and it was bitter. So not a great experience for us. Maybe we made the wrong choice, but we both agreed it wasn't good. Definitely no return visit for us.

    I highly recommend the restaurant, the people are nice and food very good, the drinks as well! I didn't give the highest rating possible just because, on the night of our booking, there was a huge and extremely noisy group in the room which made the conversations in our party almost impossible without shouting, and that was very annoying, but when this group went away, the ambiance was perfect ;)
