Met my sister-from-another-mister here a month ago. Hayfever was KILLING me, omg it was so bad and I needed a) to hide inside b) some alcohol to numb the histamines a little. I also needed about a thousand tissues for the almost constant sneezing I and the other diners were subjected to.
The service was a little slow unfortunately but the food was good: I had a burrito, my SfaM had something...more
Okay, so, this is really not 'authentic' Mexican food. More like Mexican-inspired.
On the other hand, if we disregard that, it's pretty decent. I really like their taquitos and the drinks, and it has a pretty nice atmosphere. I wouldn't come here alone, it's definitely a place for friends to share. That said, their tapas are small. Good, but quite small for the price. I did like the chicken...more
First off, this is not Mexican food. There is feta. There is a distinct lack of authenticity throughout. It claims to be authentic and Mexican. As someone who has eaten a lot of Mexican food in both the US and in Mexico, this is neither authentic Mexican, Tex-Mex nor anything in between.

Man, I haven't even finished yet and I have to write a review.
Some friends and I tried to get into the one at South Bank the other night but there was a 90-minute wait for a table, so I knew I had to pop in another time. When I found it at Westfield in Shepherds Bush, I had to jump in.
I've ordered a sweet potato side, slow-cooked pork burrito and the Tequila Experience.
