If you are ever looking for a quick bite - Wahaca is just the place to go!

The service is great, the food delicious (you can easily customise your food, when you are a vegan). It's a lively place and you can feel the vibe instantly, when walking through the doors.

I'm a huge fan of sharing platters when out with a group - the more to try the better. They offer mains as well, but I haven't tried it yet. The best bit is, that the prices are reasonable (and the Hibiscus Margarita excellent) and you don't have to worry about a huge bill in the end. With branches all over the city it is hard to miss it.


Disregard all food posioning rumours about Wahaca! Whatever they say, this awesome Mexican chain still dominates the London scene for sure.

This Charlotte Street branch is definitely worth a visit, as there is nearly always a seat for you. With loads of space, a friendly atmosphere and a relaxed cocktail bar on the first floor, there is no reason not to visit. Their food is top notch, with specials like carnitas tacos (melt in your mouth pulled meat in a deliciously greasy tortilla, topped with red onion) and crispy squid (who could resist?), but the classics are on the menu here too - from black bean quesadillas to pulled pork crispy tacos. 

Their new stuff also includes a delicious black bean soup, which is a spicy, smooth blend of black beans, avocado, chilli and feta, which works surprisingly well with Mexican flavours. If you do get the soup, be prepared it will take you the better half of an hour to eat it with the tiny spoon they provide with it. Why anyone would want to steal a Wahaca spoon is a complete mistery to me, because they are useless. Their crispy fried empanadas with mushroom and sweetcorn are also a treat.

Don't forget to finish your meal with a cup of Mexican hot chocolate, which is as true as can be, served with a cube of chilli chocolate - it's just perfect.

Friendly staff, excellent Margaritas (a whole selection!) and lots of space make this restaurant a first choice. Don't miss out.


Wahaca is a great Mexican restaurant with funky lively modern atmosphere, great service and delicious mexican food! What I love most about this specific branch is their "burrito canteen" that you can walk in, choose your ingredients for your burrito (great selection of fillings), pay and you're ready to go! One of the best burrito places in London by far and a great lunch choice that will make you a bit sleepy on your desk but it is going to be worth it!


If you love Mexican street food, definitely a must try. With several branches throughout London you are spoilt for choice. Great to share several dishes with others and the food does not disappoint. The churros are especially good! Expect informal dining setting in a relaxed atmosphere at reasonable prices that won’t stretch your wallet.

I really like the little bites that Wahaca offer, that's usually what I go for. I've been to a few locations around London and have always been impressed. The staff are polite, know the menu well and are very helpful, the food is delirious and I love that they let you leave with some spices to try at home. A delicious selection to choose from :)

Mexican food doesn't really float my boat, but Wahaca seriously is in a class of it's own, it's deliberately different while still maintaining the authentic feel of street food. I've taken friends there, they are now converts and love the place. The food is so fresh and zingy, the ingredients are amazing, whether going for the more traditional tortillas and burritos, or trying some of the slightly more delicate tostadas and quesadillas. My absolute favourite and hands down winner are the black bean tostadas (beans with avocado salsa, crema, cheese and fresh tomato salsa), wow, this stuff is so refreshing and never ceases to tantalise the tastebuds, very addictive. Definitely give it a go, you won't be disappointed.

Literally my favourite chain of restaurants there is. All the food is extremely tasty & incredibly reasonable no matter which branch you go in. If you go to the Covent Garden one then prepare to queue at peak time! Luckily their cocktail selection is worth a bash while you wait. From the amazing burritos to the pulled pork everything is incredibly tasty! Even the crunchy salads make your mouth water. Quick, yummy, not pricey & I challenge anyone to not leave satisfied. Mexican food at it's best in the capital.

Great fast mexican food! Love going here when craving some taquitos at lunch, good service and fun place to go out with friends.

Had two meals here, both have been fanatastic. Service has been brilliant and friendly. Food was quick but not too quick and they gave you a nice portion of food. The interior is really beautiful and modern.
