The title tells you what they think about their customers. The service and food has deteriorated- nothing like it used to be. More of a tourist trap now - and perfectly located for this! Recommend you avoid - take a chance somewhere else

This was the best Mexican food I have ever had. Went to set menu for five items to be shared by two people. Everything was delicious and the service was excellent.

Hi Lynda - definitely! You can see our gluten advice menu on our website, and our team can advise on lactose on the day. Often this just requires removing a cheese or crema garnish. Hope we'll see you soon.

The original and still the best! As popular now as the day it opened, Wahaca Covent Garden collides the heat of the Mexican market with all the coolness of London's trendy West End, in an explosion of colour, texture and noise. Enjoy the funky music and lively surroundings in the bar while you wait to be seated.
