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

Now the drink part is irrelevant to this review, but the Mexican is not.
It is good. I mean really good. I mean so...more
First let me note that I am from Southern California, but that I've lived in London for more than five years so my scoring is based on more realistic expectations (the bar has been officially lowered). We were initially put off by underwhelming and downright not good salsa and guacamole (my Irish husband was the first to comment so not just me!). But we were pleasantly surprised by the mains...more
Just had drinks and chips/dip in the bar here Saturday night. OK drinks and very good service - everyone was really nice and attentive even though we just were there for a few margaritas.
Would be intrigued to go back and taste the food - nothing I saw looked 'wow' but you never know.more
