Lupita began almost 50 years ago as a traditional taquería (Spanish word meaning taco shop) just west of the historic centre of Mexico City before arriving in the UK in 2010 with the launch of the first Lupita restaurant on Villiers Street.
Lupita East serves tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and enchiladas and Mexico's infamous Churros con Chocolate - the Spanish pastry brought to Mexico in the 1930s.

Oh little wolf from the east! You are so much better than your more central counterpart!
Why? Well, it's just more relaxed here. There's more space, more light and presumably as a result the staff are under less pressure, so the food and service is better. In fact the service here is really nice and you feel welcomed from the moment you walk in.

Meh, not impressed. Maybe being from America, I'm more able to access the hot spots for real authentic Mexican food.
This seemed like fancy off tasting Londoners idea of Mexican food.
Expensive...inattentive wait staff....food was ok.
Our tiny table was never cleared the entire time, empty dishes and glasses were piling up, and our waiter didn't come around once to ask if we wanted our...more
Something about this place told me it would be disappointing. I knowwww I moved to London from the Mission in SF but I really hate that brand of "oh I lived in place x where they make the best y in the world so I'm ruined forever" snobbery so please allow me to be as objective as possible.

Lupita East is typical London fare, and unfortunately, that means two stars knocked off right away.
One is for the food, which is always just... OK. It's not bad, but it's not amazing. There's none of that kick or flavour or downhome side-of-the-road feeling you get from real Mexican food. Stuff that makes your clothes smell like cooked meat all day long and makes you want another burrito...more
