I love Wahaca, we arrived at 9 and were told it was a 30 minute wait. After 10 minutes we were offered a table with another couple - only downside really as an Englishman I found this a tad awkward.

Our waitress was lovely and attentive if a bit rushed off her feet and the open windows really allowed a lot of air to circulate through the restaurant on a mild summers evening.

Great quality Mexican fast food.
