Mexican food is coming to London, and Wahaca was one of the first exponents. Kids love the simpler options and adults will enjoy the more inventive options. Wahaca is easy, affordable, and great for the whole family.

Not the best Mexican food I've ever eaten, but it's fun to finally have some Mexican options in London. It's a buzzing restaurant serving freshly prepared Mexican food. The staff is friendly and they're well-equipped for families and young kids - you should see their 'collection' of brightly-coloured highchairs! (The queue might look long, but it moves quickly!)

They call in Mexican street food. Its good but not great. Expect a wait but the wait always goes quickly. Good margaritas. Great black beans.pulled pork is super. Portions are small-tapas sized. Ok service. If you crave Mexican this will satisfy you, however, Mestizo is better.

Wahaca is a Mexican style London chain, I think there are about 5 restaurants in total, created by Thomasina Miers. Sometimes I can be put off because somewhere is a chain, but you really shouldn't be with Wahaca. It serves fresh sustainable food and everything is really tasty.
We went for the Wahaca selection in the Covent Garden restaurant. It's a good one as you get to sample different bits of the menu and it makes a pretty good lunch between two people. It was also pretty reasonable at £19.95. Some of the dishes are a little bit spicy, but not anything too bad. Also, there is a decent selection of beers and cocktails on the menu to try out with your meal.

There are quite a few Wahacas in London and they are all much of a much. Decent though unexceptional Mexican food in a fairly buzzy environment. The standard of service is sketchy in my experience.
