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

Food was just ok but the service was certiainly not worth the 15% service charge. Our server was lazy and inattentive, preferring to stand around and look at her phone than check on her tables.more

I must say this is pretty good and enjoyable. We had the place all to ourselves due to the time we...more
Lunch special advertised at £7.50. Food good, but portions small. The burrito was smaller than the full-price version so you get what you pay for.
Got a surprise at the till when the bill was £8.44 due to hidden service charge of £0.94, or 12.5%. Yes the service was awesome but in London my tip should be discretionary, and if you advertise a special the diner should pay only that. Buyer...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
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
