Tucked away in Brewer Street is El Camion, the Soho branch of Ned Conran’s – son of Terence – hip Mexican restaurant that is famous for its huge burritos and devilish cocktail list. This very central location combined with an interior that is all at once both dark and sleek, and kitsch and colourful, El Camion is the perfect venue for dates, pre-theatre bites, late night feasts and birthday parties. Decorated with brightly coloured tablecloths, flowers and a wall display of kooky hot sauces, El Camion is filled with quirky charm but the menu is classically Mexican with all of your favourites from tacos and quesadillas to salads and ice-cold Mexican beers thrown in for good measure.
We operate a hour and a half turn time on all restaurant tables and please keep in mind that we also serve a slightly reduced menu after 10.45 Wednesday through Saturday
£25 and under

Lots of missed/mistaken orders. The chips and...more
The cadilac marghs looked great, the nachos were bomb and I couldn't get enough of them and the salsas on the walls as decor are hilarious and make awesome conversation starters.
I would gladly go again. The flavours were good. But I just went for snackie cakes and drinks so I'll have to really give them a go another time. I remember the tacos were decent. Mexico street style, which just...more
I was so excited to go here for my friend's birthday (I love Mexican food, my family is Texan, and I've tried countless places, so I know a good Mexican when I have it!), but was extremely disappointed from the get go.
My friend had booked a table for 16 way in advance, and the first thing the hostess said to her was "do you want the tables pushed together?" So the table wasn't ready. So we...more
Sometimes in life you just need a margarita. Like, "get in my face tequila right now" need. When times like these hit then head to this joint. Honestly they make one of the best in the city and you get to drink it true Mexicana style - surrounded by Day of the Dead memorabilia!
It has been said that it is hard to find good tacos in London and I continue on with my never-ending search for...more
Ok, real talk London: if you're expecting amazing Mexican in this city like you get in the states, stop. It's just not going to happen. Some will be better than others, but it's never going to be mind blowingly good like it is in other countries.
However, if you're looking for amazing drinks from that side of the world, there are a few spots I can send you too. Number one being El Camion....more
