* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

This “fun Mexican” pair in Kensington and the City fringe serve “super-fresh, close to authentic” food and are “good value”. The branch near Embankment station has closed down.

* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Proper enchiladas” and “amazing guacamole made at the table” are typical of the “authentic, not Tex Mex” approach at these colourful and “very friendly” budget Mexican joints in Kensington, by the side of Charing Cross station, and on the edge of the City. They also serve “good cocktails” (but the wine list is “very limited”).

This “fun”, budget dive is “a cut above most Mexicans” serving “authentic” dishes (“excellent guacamole”) just where you expect them least – on the grotty street, right next to Charing Cross station. Very limited but positive feedback on its City-fringe and Kensington branches too.
